How cool is this?!?!?

Most of you won't know this, but I was in Los Angeles for the last 3 weeks, visiting some friends for a bit of a holiday.  I had a great time (thank you for asking!), and as I left for the airport my friends gave me a parting gift.  My jaw just about hit the floor when I saw what it was - a crafting apron with my avatar professionally embroidered on it!!!  Isn't it fantastic! 

I've included a pic of me wearing the apron so you can get an idea of the size of the embroidery.  (If you look at my face in the pic and compare it to the embroidery, I think you'll agree the resemblance is uncanny!  lol)  I can't get over how thoughtful they were to have this made!  AND how sneaky they were!  :)

Back tomorrow! :)
