I was just putting the laundry away upstairs and on looking out the window I saw a car pull up. Mr. Twins was washing his car and a Lady got out of the car and walked across to him. She gave him a plastic bag full of Butterflies. By the time I got downstairs she was driving off but she managed to wave across. The note inside was from Val. I have emailed Val to thank her. What a surprise! A bag absolutely full of Butterflies. All in different colours these Butterflies are just the prettiest things.
Butterflies started around Blanket no 7. I had put one on to decorate the Blanket and Salma in Kuwait said we should decorate each Blanket rather like a 'trademark'. So that's what we have been doing. Well
what a fantastic idea. The Ladies in the Homes really love the Butterflies, they hang them on their zimmer frames, door knobs and I have had Ladies who collect them too. Of course when I have taken a Basket full to the Homes they choose their favourite colours. Sometimes it is quite a difficult decision there are so many beautiful ones.
Val thank you ever so much. I can't get over how many you have made. They really are fantastic. It must have taken you ages. They will definitely be very useful.
For anyone else who would like to have a go at making them please follow this link to Netties Blog in Australia.
I had fun this morning playing with Butterflies, a change from doing the Laundry. How excited I was!
Thank you Val.
