Blowing my Own Horn

I wasn't going to say anything about this, but now that I've seen the photo, I can't help myself.  So I'm blowing my own horn loudly and I hope you'll forgive me. 

Remember this cotton piece I decided not to send to Handmade for Christchurch?   Well, a certain young maker left a comment on that post, and I discovered she lives in Christchurch, so I asked if she wanted it.  She did, and I was so happy because it felt just as good as if had donated the piece to H4C.

I wanted to see if her life had improved in the months since so I went to her blog, and what did I see?  I swear, this is one of the most beautiful photos I've seen recently, and whoa, it even has my piece in it.  She's only the fourth person I've ever seen wearing what I made.  Well, fourth not counting Ben.

I am totally blown away, and this is why you have to forgive me.

  3. Meg, what a lovely story, and what a lovely thing to do, to give the scarf to Hannah. She does indeed look wonderful wearing it, and I know my friend will too, when I give her your scarf. I'll send you a photo. xxx
