Monday Meetings - Donna Liljegren of Brynwood Needleworks

Sometimes in life paths may cross and an acquaintance is made. Other times when paths cross a lasting friendship is born. A friendship that grows stronger and stronger like you've known the person your whole life.

My friend Donna Liljegren, of Brynwood Needlework's, is a such a friend. Donna is one of those people whose warmth, kindness, and generosity can be felt even if you have never met her in person, which I have not, but look forward to the day I do. Please hop over and visit with her. Her blog is gorgeous and you will be glad you went to visit.

The other day I received this beautiful gift in the mail. Not only is Donna an wonderful person, she is also an incredible textile artist. She made this beautiful pillow for me in remembrance of my Razzy bunny. Yes, I cried when I opened it. I have been blessed by many gifts from Donna all of which I treasure. This pillow, however, was a blessing on my life. It shall sit on the settee in Bunnyville and help me to remember my precious baby boy.

Thank you for everything Donna. Your love, your friendship and your heart.
Love and friends always,
Shell
