I was touched - so with permission - I have added it below - Thank you Jayne x
Kate Sutcliffe, Artist
I have been spoilt rotten and am not sure I deserve it.
A couple of weeks ago a package arrived, and the return address on the back informed me it had
come from Susan in Australia. Naughty girl - she knows we don't do presents any more, but Susan
has such a kind heart that I wasn't really surprised. I did notice that it had been posted in the UK,
and didn't have "England" as part of the address but as half her family are in this country I reckoned
she had lots of stuff shipped in one consignment and then redirected.
Thought I was so bloomin' clever working that out, but never in a million years did it occur to me that
this package was the product of some incredible foresight and forward planning not just from Susan,
but also from the lovely Kate. I met Kate online a couple of years ago when she blogged
gently but beautifully as Hawthorn Spellweaver but now everyone can see what an incredible artist she is.
There were a couple of tears when I unwrapped this. Cannot express how absolutely blown away I am.
Bearing in mind Kate hasn't met Daisy but was working from photographs it is stunning how she
has captured her personality, particularly the eyes which are so very, very difficult.
What I can now admit is that something on my "List" for 2018 was to have a bimble down
to Lancashire to meet with Kate and commission a painting of Daisy as a present for Management ...
