Wonderful Friends

I have the most wonderful friends. I know I have posted before that I volunteer at the Cancer Treatment Center of America before, well Alyce who doesn't stamp much with us anymore, comes over to visit and knits instead while we stamp has been busy making lap throws, knitted hats & scarfs to donate to our guests at CTCA. She made a whopping 9 throws, 9 hats and 9 scarfs and brought them over to Sam's house to give to me to take. They are FABULOUS! She used double stitch so they are nice and thick and snugly. Sweet JoAnne, donated some $ to Alyce to help with yarn for all the projects. Thanks you both for these wonderful contributions. I should add Sam has donated about 100 cards for the guests also. Vickie has donated cards too. I told you I have wonderful friends. They also make birthday's special.......I will be hitting the double nickel mark soon and Wednesday when we stamped, I was treated to a wonderful tortilla soup and salad lunch with chocolate pumpkin cupcakes and whip cream frosting.....YUMMY, YUMMY. Sam made me these adorable place mats using thread that actually sparkles. They are so darn cute. Everyone made me adorable cards too. I can't thank you guys enough for your generosity and thoughtfulness. YOU ARE THE BEST! Oops I almost forgot....Sam knitted me a adorable dishcloth too!

See the sparkle thread?
