Dzintra!!!! I love that little heat pack!!! How lovely for your mum to have such a beautiful gift from her girl. I still have a little calender that my mum stitched for me with the date I was married...she was so clever.

Dzintra!!! Oh your mum WILL love that little pack! There are so many lovely things to make...did I tell you a dear friend lent me a sewing machine??????? I wish I had time to use it!!! I will, soon. We are painting and preparing my basement and upper studio to get it ready for more production in the coming months!
