Oh Dana..what fun!! You know this group of folks we have are just the most caring, loving folks..and too think..had it not been for knitting or Ravelry, we'd not have met..It's a real gift to have so many awesome people with the same common interest..I love NOSO!!..but I love my Group the 'mostest'..
OH and Dana..you think my ears were clean enough for that shot?..hehe..I want to see the one posted here of the Monarch Ear for Marianne to see..thank goodness I cleaned those guys on Sat. morn.
I loved my door prize..a great bag..donated by Native Grace..actually I'm thinking it will be a nice spring bag..and maybe not for knitting..hmm travel perhaps or when folks from distant places visit us!! A special bag..a special day..and special people!!
Thanks Dana for being in that group!
