A delightful parcel came today
from my Angel - No.19.
The on-line group Scquilters which I belong to have an annual retreat and next year it is being held in Kiama, NSW. One of the many activities in connection with the retreats is the Angel/Mortal swap. It isn't compulsory to join, but if you do then you are an 'Angel' to someone and an 'Angel' is appointed to you. The idea is that as an Angel you send a parcel in December and then in each of the next 3 months to your mortal, trying very hard not to give away who you are. At the same time you are receiving little parcels from your Angel. This is what came today from my Angel who is known only to me as No.19. Isn't it lovely - a cute little purse, embroidery scissors, handy note book, cross-stitched book mark to go with the book and a beautiful glass bell to add to my Chrissy decorations.
I would love to show you what I sent my mortal but if I did and she looked at my blog then the secret would be out. All will be revealed on the Sat night of the retreat. It is a lot of fun because all the time you are trying very hard not to reveal yourself, but at the same time trying to work out who your own angel is. Some people get up to some very very devious ways and means to hide themselves or work out who their own angel is. ps I have a few clues but not revealing anything here..........
