My only daughter, Heather, lives in Cape Town, South Africa with her husband, Darren.
She also has three of my grandchildren
Samuel, Olivia and Elisha.
She is also pregnant with their forth child due, in November.
She does believe that Heaven is a
When I went to Cape Town to visit
we were shopping together at the mall.
I told her I would run into this shop and she said "I'll
be in the book store".
Actually I think she said ~ "Oh, take your time ~ I'll be in the book store!"
When I got finished I walked into the book store
and her eyes were glazed over
and I knew she had gone to that special place.
She has been this way ever since she was a small child.
The last day I was there we went to the tip of Africa,
to a row of little shops.
We went into the book store,
because I knew she would
really want to go there,
and it smelled old.
Like it had old books
inside and it did.
She was in Heaven!
It also had a wooden
box of old post card that looked too interesting.
If I get to go back I want to go get some of those cards!
There were also a lot of old
map type plates that someone had framed.
They need to come to America!
So today when this chart I had ordered
for her came I decided to work on it.
Yes, I put Kokeshi away cause Heather
is coming home in June.
It is a Country Cottage Needleworks and it is called
"The Book Store".
Heather moved into a new house and upstairs is a room, the study, that is for her books.
The computer is
also up there and she spends
all her free time reading of which she has very little.
I can still remember the magic
I felt when I learned to read. I remember
"Now I can read, anything I want".
Of course, I was only 5 but that didn't matter to me.
Dick and Jane were just too interesting!
I plan to get the frame shown in the picture
and have it for her to take home.
I hope she will like it.
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look
in the book store windows.
I will have them done
As always God Bless your stitching fingers ~
