friends

I know that the most rewarding part of blogging for me has been the relationships that have formed with fellow bloggers. I am CONSTANTLY amazed at the generosity of these people that I've never met and I am SO THANKFUL for the friends that I've made through my blog.

If it weren't for the support of these friends, my blog would have dissolved long ago I'm sure of it. I can't think of any other project that I've started that has lasted this long and that I'm still excited about a year and a half later.

This morning as I was shovelling the front porch I noticed a box in-between the doors. At first I thought that Joe must have ordered something online, but when I had a closer look I realized it was a birthday gift for ME from Felicia. Today isn't my birthday, but I'm going to be 40 in a matter of days...yuck. I quickly made the decision that Joe could finish the shovelling, grabbed the box, threw it (gently) in my car and sped off to work.

I brought the box in with me to school and quickly opened it.



The first thing I noticed was this BEAUTIFUL tote bag. Oh my, how I love that colour!



Inside the the tote was the most incredible Noni pattern for a knitted bag.



And..................beautiful yarn to knit the bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (and handles!)



And a little kit to make a knitted daffodil. I LOVE it!



Thank you so much Felicia. You've made my week!
