Rain, rain, and more rain!

But yesterday was 65 and sunny with blue skies so you bet I took advantage of the nice weather and went to Wally World.  Of course, I was pretty tired after all that but I'm refreshed today.  I don't think I ever showed you the cards and letters I've been receiving from my "fan club"!  I thought I would share some of what I have been sent and/or the order received....
My birthday back in January......the Snoopy card is from Sam and Grayson and the animal card is from my daughter.......she doesn't pick out the card from them, she let's the boys choose which always makes it special.
These are the cards I got from my other 2 son's and grandson Uriah............they made handmade cards....can you tell which one is from the grandchild?  Okay, here's's the one with the picture of me in the glasses.....I think that's me anyway as I'm the only one that wears glasses! LOL!
Next is Valentine's Day........again....Sam and Grayson's card is on the left and Amy's card is on the right............
Here's where they customize it just for me............I love that part!  I have no idea where Grayson got  the idea for the monkey but then he's full of "monkey business" so that could be it! LOL!  I am so fortunate to have such great grandchildren and so thoughtful.
Next, I received a card from Betsy Queen (she' s on my sidebar).  She sent me a get well card and one of her handmade DPN holders!  What a surprise!  Thank you are the Queen of generosity!  Thank you also for your prayers and good wishes for Grace and for me.  Isn't that DPN holder just the cutest?
Then......the "feast de resistance".......Connie (Farside of Fifty on my sidebar) sent me a beautiful card she made herself (this woman is so talented....she never ceases to amaze me with her knowledge and her creativity)....I want to be like her when I grow up!  Sorry about the lighting but it is so dark here with the rain even in the middle of the day.  Her card is all glittery but you can't tell in the picture.  I need to get me some of those glitter pens.....too fun! 
But that's not all.....feast your eyes on this....she made me all these stitch markers!!!  Can you believe it?  They're beautiful!  Absolutely gorgeous, Connie!  Thank you so VERY much!  I was so surprised and now I think I have plenty for life....although that means I can cast on more! LOL!
It makes me feel very special and I am so lucky to have found my blog friends!  It still amazes me how you can feel so close to someone without ever having met's wonderful!
Last on the list is my Valentine's Day project bag I ordered for myself...........
when I saw it I thought it was perfect for's a lined drawstring bag from the UK.  It does not have interfacing but that's fine with me as it is a small one for socks..........
I love the lining too...............
She/He....the name was Sam so who knows....sent me their card and a little stitch marker......I've gone "from rags to riches" at least in the stitch marker category! LOL!  Now I have to get some V-Day colored sock yarn to put in that bag!
I've been a very fortunate gal so far this week!  Thank you to all of you thoughtful and generous
people!  I hope you get a pleasant surprise or 2 this week that makes you feel special! 
Happy Trails!!!


  1. I love getting happy mail and you are always so sweet to others that you deserve special treatment. I got a book in the mail today so that made me happy! Hugs!

  2. I love all of your cards. Piper sends cards to me too and I cherish them. Wow! Look at all of those stitch markers! Such a generous gift. I hope the rain stops soon so you can knit instead of emptying buckets.

  3. That is so nice that people still send cards and gifts in the mail. What a treat to have so many good friends too. It's raining here again today.

  4. Great mail here. I love all the hand drawn cards. The new project bag is cute.

  5. You got some cute cards! I am so glad the stitch markers arrived safely, now you can knit more:)
