if so, you may also recall that Berrocco will only post to US and Canada, and I couldn't seem to find this particular booklet on other sites suggested by kind bloggers?
Just when I thought it might become one of my obsessive (read: expensive) ventures, an online friend dropped a little ray of sunshin-y hope...
look what arrived all the way from Albuquerque* today:
Not only did this lovely blogger go out of her way to help me, I got a surprise when I opened the parcel to find my booklet and a beautiful, beautiful skein of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in "Indian Summer".
I am overwhelmed - thank you, Rebecca.
Nowhere else in my life at the moment do I encounter the kind of support and generosity of spirit that I find through the connections made via my blog, and it has been a greatly positive experience.
I have never really posted about why I started blogging, and now's not the time to go into it all, but suffice to say it was suggested as an outlet during a particularly bleak time in my life. I don't think I'd really comprehended the impact this community would have on me - so all I can say is:
I wish the whole world could interact like bloggers do...
* Is it just me, or does anyone else think "Bugs Bunny" when they hear the word "Albuquerque"?
