Gifts To & From...

An altered clip board I made for a friend.  Ana of Scrappy Pink Corner.  She had some sadness recently so I wanted to give her something to help her smile.  I have been working on it for a long time as I would do one step and then as that was drying I would let it tell me the design it wanted.  I had an idea before I began but this end result is nothing at all like I envisioned.  I like it even better.  I can show it now because Ana has received it and also likes it.

Today I met "The Ladies Who Lunch" at one of our favorite local restaurants which is sadly closing.  This is Bev and this photo was taken last Christmas at the same restaurant.  Bev has no blog.  She is such a lovely lady and I am proud to share her friendship.  When we met today she handed me a little bag and asked if I was still doing the pink scarf project.  I said yes and opened the bag.  Wrapped in tissue was a pink scarf Bev had knit to donate.  I was so touched and pleased.  Thank you Bev.

This hand knit scarf is so soft and feathery in the palest of pink color.  It is delicious and very light weight.

Here is a closer look at this gorgeous pink scarf.  I was truly surprised and grateful.  One request by Vicki and the meaning of  "it takes a village" comes to mind.  I am amazed at how many people have created and donated a pink scarf to this project.  Bev said she may even knit another one since we have until October.
Lots of sunshine here.  Snow is still on the ground but it is melting.  Still very cold even though the sun is shining.  I love the sun however I know we need more rain.
The stores are full of St. Patrick decor and Easter things.  I feel like we are rushing our days even faster than they are flying by.  I realize I better get very busy if I am going to meet all my March projects.
I am so grateful for all of your comments.  I think I am in for a long spell with this cold.  I can only hope I don't get the "cough that clears a crowded room"!!!
Creative Blessings and Hugs to each of you...
