I am overwhelmed!!

Oh my gosh - today the mailman brought all kinds of goodies.....
Beans for Preemies and special things for me - you all just don't know how much it meant to me - it's been a very difficult week and this is just what I needed.
Beanies for Preemies.....

These are from Teri Oh they are so cute! Look at that tiny blue one on the right!

These are from Kim - so very soft! I love the Debbie Bliss yarn!

These are from Pat - with extra treasures for me (How did you know I've been looking for a calendar for my desk at work and I LOVE National Parks?) Everyone can use more refrigerator magnets too - (I got two today!)

Ladies - I just don't know what to say - I wish I had some more STR to send to each of you - but will draw early next week in case there are any stragglers. I am so appreciative of your generosity!

Then the postman also brought me this from Mary. I sort of guessed the location of her vacation and she was going to send me a refrigerator magnet - instead I got the magnet and all these other goodies - to knit more Beanies - which I will!!! She bought the yarn in France and it is so very soft - just right for those tiny heads!!! I really need the note cards - so this was perfect! Thank you so very much!
It had been a particulary difficult week - M2 daughter is having a tough go of life and I went to spend a few days with her. Missed two days of work which I can't afford - there wasn't enough to keep me busy anyway - but still. Daughter is doing much better now - as they say 'sometimes life just comes at you hard!'
Then I get all these goodies in the mail today - I just can't thank you all enough for your kindness!
I'm off to finish the painting and maybe just sit and knit for awhile!
Knit Peace

What do you do at Camp Sherman? I've forgotten. I just realized that I was there a couple of years ago for a wedding and it was SO NEAT! We went running around there and I just loved it.

Now that's a real nice bunch o' beanies. Glad you can use the calendar.

A veritable boquet of beanies and bonuses.

No one gets out of youth unbruised. Hope your dear one heals fast.

What a wonderful collection of beanies!

Oh the hats are going to be so loved. I just got done with a donation drive I organized to give yarn to the Southern NH Services. They have 30 senior knitters and some of them are shut-ins. Knitting for charities help to keep them feeling needed and useful.
