comes with thoughtfulness and kindness,
and a piece of herself.
Senior Hapshiba Kwon and
Fiber Artist Hazel Cindy Montes of Handstories blog fame
have found each other via my blog,
and I feel have made a lifelong connection thru their love of stitching,
fiber & the written word.
Hapshiba started following Hazel's blog
after I bought two stitched art pieces from Hazel to share with my students.
I happened to mention to Hazel how much Hapshiba admired her delicate stitches
on those sister ships.
Hazel was so moved by Hapshiba's reaction
that she took it upon herself to make a special work for Hapshiba for a graduation gift.
Here we see Hapshiba as she opens her gift,
and the joy on her sweet face as she holds Hazel's stitched piece up for a picture.
Thank you Hazel for bringing so much joy into one of my all time favorite student's hearts.
It means the world to me.
