Abundant Thanks!!

I have this growing list of many things I wanted to take the time out to show my appreciation (which just reflects how blessed I am to know so many kind people) and now is the time!

~Alert: This is a word heavy (more than 50 words) post,
which means very little reading pictures this time! LOL~
But worth it! ;op

So, not too long ago I had a blog DeLurker Day and BOY was it nice to see who out there is reading me!! :o)
It just really brought a smile on my face to know you all are taking time to stop by and see what I am up to over here!
Thank you so much for stepping out of your norm in "lurkdom" to shout out to me with a kind comment! It was great to discover new blogs too!!!

Also, my e-knit pals are FAB! You all immediately came out with the advice on how to secure my loose stitch!! Thank you to everyone that gave me tips in helping me be Ms. Knit Fix!!! Or just stopped by to chit chat about those darn G.S. cookie m.onsters! Haha!

Awhile back I asked a blog friend to pick me up one of those Ravelry "Hello my name is" pins, that I never seem to be in the right place at the right time to get, when she was at Rhineback (I would love to go to this fiber festival one day!).

And Veronica ended up sending me a small package!!

Not only did I get the original pin I wanted, but two more! AND AND AND some malabrigo sock yarn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o) I am just a little happy about it!!! LOL

This is my 1st time getting the Mal sock line since its yarn splash last year! (fondled it yes, having it no Haha)
So I was over the moon PLUS it is in a crimson color - SEE! * lean in closer!* ;opThis meant a lot to me as I've really been trying to be good about not buying yarn (except for a couple swaps I was in so far) and to rely on my stash that has been coming in handy during a lean budget year.
So this package really made me feel good about being diligent in that area!!
THANK YOU Veronica because you really didn't have to do it, but I am so glad that you did!!

I also received a Kreativ Blogger Award from some sweet and thoughtful blog friends! Muchas Gracias Andrea, Cici, and Veronica!!
If I missed a nomination, please charge it to my head and not my heart!!
As I was happy to receive it and it feels good to know I inspire others to be creative!

And I gotta show my appreciation to Walden for doing her recent Friday Feature Blog on me! :o) Yay! Thank you!!

Since I am doing an abundance of thanks I wanted you all to go check out Liz who is actually thanking me for sending her yarn from my blog anniversary contest from last year. She is such a sweetie! :o) Go see what she made with that beautiful silk mal!

That is it! As always,

Make it a FABULOUS week!!!

    You are so deserving of a little yarn treat! That color is so gorgeous, and totally you. It's weird that I think that, having never met you, but it's true!

    Have a fabulous week yourself, lady!
