Soooo Appreciated!

Is exactly how I felt on last Saturday!!

My awesome knit/crochet group, Charlotte Purls, surprised me during our annual holiday luncheon!!

With a fabulous basket to show their appreciation of being the "organizer" of the group

It was so unexpected and felt SO good! :o)

They really floored me with their very very very generous giftA gift certificate to a local spa here (much needed paraffin pedicure here I come!!!) AND a v.isa gift card (already started getting some goodies) too!

The card read, "To Stacey - Thank you for all you do! With much love, from your Purls"

Along with some of my favorite treats of gum and a bag of chocolate caramels (which is all gone!!)

And one of the Purls, Heather, gave me some BEAUTIFUL handmade stitchmarkers out of genuine Swarovski crystals!!! *gasp*

I already have a new project on the needles with my fab new knit jewelry!! (WIP/FO pic to come soon...)

I really was overwhelmed with their thoughtfulness and being so kind during these crazy times!!

THANK YOU Purls for being the best knitting group ever!!! :o)
