Still Feelin’ the Love

We had big fun handing out Valentines at the vet’s yesterday, and I especially enjoyed gifting the infinity scarf to Wondervet.

December 2010 017

It’s a great joy to give a gift that’s well-received, and Wondervet really, REALLY liked the scarf.  You can read the details about the vet reports here


See where Sis slimed HER card, down on the lower left?

When we got home, we had a special card waiting.  No, not from the Knight…  He was tied up on brush fires yesterday afternoon, on into the evening.   Sissy has a very special friend named Mabel who was about a week ahead of her on this glaucoma journey.  Mabel and her mom sent us a very pretty valentine; both hearts are pins!

photoHere’s a close-up of the bottom pin.  They’re so pretty – and accented in PURPLE!  Thank you to Mabel and her mom.   And in case you’re wondering, we met them on Ravelry, through the basset hound group I started there when I joined Ravelry.  Who knew a knitting website would turn out to be so VERY much more?

Have you had any sweet surprises lately?

    How very lovely ~ both the gift you gave and the gift you received! Brush fires already? Those must be controlled burns – didn’t you just have snow about a week ago? Finally a little rain today and more expected for the rest of the week 🙂

    Of course Sis slimed her card. How else would she prove she had read it?

    Glad Wondervet loved her scarf. It should be a great, pet-friendly article!

    Isn’t it wonderful to make something and have it so well received? Makes it so worthwhile :).

    So glad you had some sweet surprises. You, the Knight and the girls deserve a little break and that card is so cute.

    I’m still way behind due to the “great computer crash”….

    The scarf is lovely, I can see why she loved it. And especially since you made it yourself, that makes it extra special. And i’m sure that Sissy & Gretchie helped. 🙂
