Default Picture of Anne and her Birthday Keepsake Binder!

*steps out of the closet*

I admit to being the Host who had the pleasure of hand-delivering the Keepsake binder to Anne on the morning of her birthday I hope to be able to post photos of the actual party later this week. But I thought you might like to see hard evidence that the binder was indeed delivered So here it is



PS: the photo was actually taken on Sunday with Anne sitting at the original Kitchen Table, and the badge says "World's Greatest 80 Year Old!"

Anneli, Thank you for taking the pictures, and showing us this one. I am beside myself with joy. After all of these years, she has finally seen some of the art work that I did for her. Thank you just doesn't seem to say enough for all the happy this has brought me.



I made a copy of this, and it is now sitting on my art desk in a lovely frame.

So glad that Anne received it. I hope you gave her a celebratory kiss on the cheek from us all, and that you toasted her with a suitable liquid accompaniment.

Wow! Thanks for taking and sharing the picture, Anneli!
I knew the drawing I did didn't do her justice ,but now I'm really wishing I'd found a more recent one to work with...
Then again, I'd probably have botched the hair, so it's just as well.
She looks great. Hope she loved the binder - No, I'm sure she had to, between Ghyle, edith and Maelin at least!

Tresa, what you did for her birthday was wonderful, and from your heart. It was a great gift to her and I am positive that she was thrilled to get it.

Hope you don't mind me asking, but...

Are you the same "old" (threads carefully here) as the crochetlady back at the very early beginning of the chat at Anne's old site?

Yes, indeed, I am the same old CrochetLady as at the chat site on Anne's old site. I am finally getting back to checking in now and again here. Was very sorry to see the old site taken down! That was a huge disappointment! It's nice to see you here, Hans. Familiar names are good to see.

Was wondering if you by any chance have been interested in any American Bluegrass bands that have come through The Netherlands in the last few years?

Well, it's good to see that Anne's work is still being admired as it should be!!

Take care,
CrochetLady

Ah great, not that I don't like newbies (on the contarry) but it's nice to meet one of the real oldbies again
Yes, we mourned for the passing of that forum and chat, too; and also why and about the way it all had to be done as it was done. Ah well, such is life.

I'm sorry corchetlady, I'm not into bluegrass, country etc. so I wouldn't even notice if there were bands doing gigs even if they were in the neighbourhood.

Check out the New Kitchen Table (when it gets back up, that is!) More familiars there too!

Glad you enjoyed seeing it, I admit I was delighted that this photo came out fairly well as - alas - a couple of others I took were pretty disappointing One of my main objectives during my visit was to get a decent one with the keepsake binder for the site *phew*
