Honoring YOU!!!

As I was writing down the names of those of you who put your name in the hat for my giveaway so I could, uh, put them in the hat, (see favorite, favorite hat below)



I found myself thinking how grateful I am for each of you and that I wanted to send this little scarf...

...to Bumblebeans for her ongoing efforts to use her creativity for the good of others....

...to Brenda for complimenting my quilt-making efforts when I was new to blogging and showing me see how inspiration passes from person to person....

...to Carolyn, for sharing quilts that inspired me to start a blog in the first place....

...to May, for being funny, open and honest in beautiful and unique ways....

...to Amy, (who lives in my home state!) for simply sharing her life...

...to Jessica, for sponsoring the Soup Swap and reminding me of the little pleasures in life...

...to Mom, for loving beautiful things and always loving me...

...to Alexis, for always finding the coolest things....

...to Megs, for sharing her voice of faith and hope...

...to Amy, for being the first person to really show me what a blogging community is about through her friendship...

...to Kendra, for her enthusiasm and creativity and for extending friendship...

...to Latharia, for amazing me with her energy and generosity...

...to Jean, for creating such beautiful art...

...to Jen, for loving her family and the adventure of her life...

...and anyone else along the way who has made the little collection someplace I like to sit and visit awhile.

Alas, I have only one scarf to give away tonight. And so it goes to.....

(interlude with hubby assisting with very formal drawing)


Jen! The newest visitor to the little collection! Congratulations Jen!
