I returned from New Zealand to find a gift pack from Maxine. Inside was a pack of 16 fur balls (I'm certain they did not originate in a cat) and I had, by serendipity, purchased felt squares at the Auckland Quilt Show. One of the items on display at the Show was a bowl made using the fur balls and a large circle of thick felt ... easy, once the spacing is worked out. Thanks also for the beautiful sari silks ... I feel really blessed.
