I had a tin of blocks made with holiday fabrics that I had used to make a small runner for my genkan above the shoe cupboard.
When Kimie was here, she pulled out some of the blocks and arranged them into a table runner.
This was mailed off to Oregon in March. (in plenty of time for this Christmas).
At the end of the year, I went back to those blocks and made a similar runner for a neighborhood friend.
That friend often leaves goodies at my door. I will come home or go out to find a bag of apples or a giant pear, or some other goodie in a bag hanging from my doorknob.
I put this together earlier in the week and took it with a note to hang at her door.
They look almost the same and the days inbetween seemed a lot the same too.
