I literally found "Joy" in my mailbox late last week. And, I have to say that I was stunned to find this adorable "wabbit". And, she's mine, all mine. :-)
Let me share the letter that was enclosed with "Joy":
Hello Auntie Darlene,
My mummy said I could come and live with you, cuz it's not safe in Oklahoma anymore, with those nasty wabbit hunters. You can see my ear is bent and my head tilts a little. That's cuz I got caught under the fenze, trying to wun away from the wabbit hunter. Mummy say's my cuzin Thimbles is living with you in your sewing room. She say's if I'm a good girl you might let me live in there with her, amongst all those lovely warm quilts. I promize I'll be a good girl. Oh and mummy said to tell you that name is JOY. She says sometimes you can't remember where you left your joy, so she thought she'd send me to remind you to look in your sewing room."
As I was reading this sweet note I laughed and cried at the same time. In fact I read the note several times because I was truly stunned. The sweet Angel in blogland that sent "Joy" to me is Linda @ All Stitched Up. I don't know how I will ever thank Linda for this sweet sentiment - talk about touching my heart. So, Linda, I heart you! :-) Thank you so much!
So, then I introduced Joy to Thimbles and since then they've been romping and playing in my sewing room. Oh my goodness they are having way too much fun!
Here they are on my kitchen table, posing and looking sweet! :-)
As I was walking away with the camera I overheard Thimbles whisper to Joy - "this quilted table topper and I match, do you think Auntie Darlene will let me have it". You should know that she's been begging me for a quilt of her own. LOL I bet it won't be long before Joy starts begging for a quilt, too.
Thank you for letting me share! And, Linda, once again, thank you so much! You are a true Friendship Angel.
