Thank You My Friend!

Yesterday I received a delightful surprise from my BFF, BSF, Carolyn! When I came into our store, there was a gift bag waiting for me and when I gave her a puzzled look, she explained that it was an early birthday gift. She will be out of town next week on my birthday and she wanted to give her gift to me before she left.

When I opened the bag, I was absolutely thrilled to see that she had made me a Tulip Purse!


Then she went on to explain how she wanted it to be a surprise and that she had to sign up for the course, pick out the fabric, and take time off work to do it - all the while hoping that I wouldn't find out! For those of you who know Carolyn, you know how hard it would be for her to NOT talk about something like this, not only to me, but to everyone who came into the store! But she did it and I am so touched that not only did she make something for me that I totally love - but that she gave me the first one she has ever made!

Now I can't wait to use it - in fact, I think it will be making the trip to CHA with me! Thank you again my friend - I totally love it - especially the button:)
