On New Years Eve my bloggy buddy Heather Welch posted this on her Facebook wall:
Isn’t that adorable? Then she tagged me on her wall with this message:
Wait, what? She had messaged me just 10 days prior asking what Princess Nagger’s favorite colors were, and mentioned that she would like to make a cool dragon for her. She crocheted that – how awesome is she? I used to crochet, and no way would I have knocked out something as cool as that in just a mere 10 days (or anything cool for that matter) – with Christmas in the middle of all that to boot. Heather is a rock star.
Princess Nagger was thrilled when it arrived in the mail – she wanted to pose with it right away (OK, if I’m being honest I wanted her to pose with it right away so I could blog about it). Forgive the picture qualities, I was testing out the camera on my new phone that luckily has an LED flash since it was dark out:
Naturally I also wanted to test out the front view camera (that doesn’t have a flash) and she let me be in the picture with her and her cool new friend:
The rest of the evening she had her new dragon friend by her side – eating dinner, watching TV, playing on her computer – then she of course had to cuddle with Bubbles at bedtime. There was no question Bubbles would be accompanying her to school the next day, too:
You’ll be happy to know Bubbles was a huge hit with all her friends – and she has been Princess Nagger’s constant companion ever since. You really should check out her Etsy Shop, Southern Gal’s Crochet – she has some mad skillz.
Thank you, Heather, for the absolutely amazing and thoughtful gift.
Isn’t it great how the blogosphere enables some incredible friendships?
