Your brother did a very nice woodworking job on the shelves. It's nice of you to have held on to them for all this time, then to have returned them to him. I doubt that I would have been generous enough to add the cat collection, but your generousity is one of the things that first drew me to you as a friend. You and Rox both have such big hearts.
Your shawl is wonderful! I like the idea of a scrappy bunting and the scrappy coasters as well, but those dolls are adorable! My granddaughter is much too young for something like that, but I'll keep them in mind for a few years from now.
