For Karin

My travelling friend, Karin, has a birthday coming up just a few days after mine. We are both March babies born in the same year. I am five days older than Karin.

Karin and her husband Mike sold their house and many of their possessions a few years ago and took off in their RV to live the nomadic life. They have had adventures all over the United States and Canada are currently stationed in Florida until the end of this month. In fact, Mike has even written a book about their travels. Hubby and I took a vacation two years ago and met up with them in Tennessee and Kentucky. We had the most wonderful time. (Love the weather down there).

These days I only get to see her once a year when she comes back to Canada, but we are able to have very lengthy phone chats thanks to Skype.

I wanted to send Karin a little something for her birthday. It had to be little because you don't give big things to people who are living in a space challenged motor home. Actually their RV is quite big but still, you can't store junk like you can in a house.

Karin's favourite colour is yellow so I made her this ornament which will take up very little space. It has quite a lot of embroidery and texture. It's going out in the mail tomorrow so that it can get to its destination in plenty of time.
