Thank you Vicki

So...a couple of weeks ago I am working at an all day band festival. I was working at the medals booth. Every half hour when a band found out their score, the kids would run over to my table and buy their medals for the place they finished. This "rush" would last 5 minutes and then I'd sit for 25 minutes and wait for the next rush.

One of the other mom's working the booth next to me sat knitting. I told her that she was smart for bringing something to keep busy. She reaches in her bag and hands me knitting needles and tells me to pick a skein of yarn (she had at least 8 different colors/types in her bag. I started knitting with one skein but found it to be all knotted up. She threw that one back in her bag and gave me another one. I didn't finish that day so she told me to take it home and finish it up. I couldn't believe that this mom who I hardly knew was so very generous with her yarn & needles. I was so touched by her generosity that when I returned the needles I wanted to give her a little thank you so I made this little card set for her. She loved it!
