JOY has arrived - literally! :-)


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.
In Friendship!

Joy is such a cutie! I am sure she will help you find joy in whatever room you find her romping with Thimbles! Blessed Easter to you!

What a pretty pair of knickers she has on *s*!

Karen said...

Joy brought such a cute story along with her. Except now I'm all worried about how she almost got caught by the wabbit hunters. And she already has a new friend at your house, Joy's life is really looking up!

Carol said...

That is just the sweetest!
Happy Easter to you!

Shelina said...

So cute! I'm sure Joy will help model in front of you future quilts - Vanna style.

Linda said...

Now I just knew she'd feel at home with you and thimble, safe from that nasty wabbit farmer. I was thrilled to make her for you.
(((Hugs)))

Pam said...

What a cutie!! It certainly does look like Joy and Thimble are becoming fast friends :)))

Linda is sure sweet to have rescued Joy and sent her to you. I'm sure there are far less wabbit hunters in Arizona.

Linda sure was sweet to send you Joy. I'll bet those two are going to cause a rucus! You'd better keep an eye on them.

What a cutie! I loved the note Linda sent with Joy! That's so sweet of her!
Well, I think you better have to make a quilt for both Thimble and Joy as soon as possible, if you want to have a little peace and quiet! LOL! Good luck!
