JUDY, KATHY AND I GOT TOGETHER AT MY HOUSE

FOR EACH OTHER. WE ARE ALL SPOILED ROTTEN!!

WE HAD A LOVELY DAY AND I THANK THEM BOTH
FOR MY WONDERFUL GIFTS AND THEIR FRIENDSHIPS
AND FOR BRAVING THE COLD TODAY!  WE STILL HAVE

AND TOASTY DURING THESE COLD, SNOWY WINTER DAYS
AND NIGHTS.

UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

Hi Lori,
Each gift is so beautifully made and I know you all had to feel so loved because you all know the time and effort spent in making them!! Treasured gifts by treasured friends.....Priceless!!!
So happy you could all get together and celebrate your friendship!!
I so wish I could send the gift of warmth and sunshine to you as we are having 70 degree temps, but just know I send warm thoughts across the miles!!
