For what joy???

Thank you so much both of you!!! :-) Ruth has a beautiful blog and I'm always amazed by her fast crocheting skills, as she always has some beautiful crocheted project to show in all her posts. Great going Ruth. And Anitha (as she has already mentioned) is one of my early blog friends. She's multi-talented and I always wait to read her blog posts.
