A gift arrived in the post

This is so much better than a postcard! A friend of mine has been travelling around Russia and Georgia, and he came across an old lady in a small village, crocheting hats. Earlier this week I checked the mail box to find a small parcel with my name on it, and inside was a black hat with a red trim, finished with a crochet flower. Two of my favourite colours, and such a thoughtful gift!

It goes to show how important craft skills are in small places, not only for people to make a living but also for enjoyment. Pity summer's coming - it's too warm to wear it right now!
