Easter Exchange for Meghan

I received an email from Meghan today letting me know that she has received the Easter Exchange that I sent to her. She is so cute - loved her email, she is busy picking out a prom dress... remember those days?? She put some good photos up of what I sent to her here. It was fun putting goodies together for her! Glad you like it!

Spring Has Sprung! Box

And speaking of high school and things from so long ago... I have not seen an old high school friend of mine since June of 1981... which was when we graduated from high school... we recently reconnected on Facebook, and her father passed away. He still lived locally, so Lee and her family came up for the funeral. Of course I went... and here I am with her three really lovely daughters (and one sleeping granddaughter) at the funeral home. I rarely have any pictures of me, and my Facebook friends have seen this already... for the rest of you... well, here you are...I am the one furthest back in the photo in the beige sweater...the one who most obviously graduated from high school in 1981 :-)

What a beautiful exchange piece! High school feels like so long ago and it was only 9 short years for me. My how time does fly. How wonderful to reconnect with an old HS friend. So sad it was under such difficult circumstances for her.

What a pretty piece Carol! Spring is certainly not far off now.
How nice for you to catch up with your high school friend even if it wasn't under the best of circumstances.

Glad you could meet up with old BFF even under sad circumstance. What memories you must have shared!

Happy Spring!

I'm sorry about the sad circumstances of your meeting up with and old friend, but how very wonderful it is to reconnect. (You look GREAT, btw!!)

Carol - you look so young in this photo -- I thought it was from 1981! (I need to read more carefully I guess.)

Your exchange is lovely!

That box and your stitching is wonderful Carol! And how fun to meet up with an old friend even though the circumstances were sad. I'm sure though that you have a nice time catching up.

Dear Carol, I was so delighted to see your sweet face again. You are so kind and it's good to put a face with your blogging and emails. Seems like yesterday that we became friends...and I haven't been the best at keeping up on comments, but I stop by often. As always, sweet exchanges and great to see your CHS Christmas start. Love and hugs, Deb

The piece you stitched for Meghan is beautiful - congratulations on a lovely finish.

I'm glad that you were able to reconnect with your school friend - I'm sorry that it was under sad circumstances, though :(
