I received a beautiful, soft, cozy, warm hat- made by YOU- in today's mail. It will surely help to keep me warm during the cold Chicago winter months (it was 30 degrees below zero here last week!). Thank you for your efforts- I wish I had your talents. Best of luck to you, and I will think of you and your future home every time I wear my lovely hat.

With love and appreciation,

Dear Adong Agnes--thank you for the soft and beautiful Betty cap you made for me. I wore it recently in some rainy, cold weather and it kept me very warm. When I wear it people tell me how beautiful it is...and when they try it on they fall in love with it...so I bought more for my friends! I wish you and your family much luck and success in the New Year.

All my best,
Carolyn
