Martha's teapot surprise!

Look what I received in the mail from our lovely Martha Ess. One of her teapots. The one I named! English Country Garden! It was in the sweetest note wishing me well with my operations that are approaching. A prayer in each stitch! For what more could I ask?

Martha's work is as near perfect as I have ever seen. I am really overwhelmed with this lovely gift. I will have to get it framed and take it to the hospital with me. I'm sure it will be the only teapot I'll see while I'm there!

I hope you have all noticed that the book is ready to be ordered. I ordered mine this morning.

Thank you again, Martha. You are truly a dear.

What a wonderful surprise! And your favorite color is right smack dab in the middle! I've been eagerly awaiting this book... I ordered mine this morning too! Any word on when the surgery will be? I think of you and pray for your health every day! Hugs from your adopted sister!

What a lovely gift! It will certainly lift your spirits while recuperating from your surgeries. May God guide the hands of the surgeons and watch over you during this time.
