Sometimes when you want to show your love and appreciation, only a surprise party will do. There is a group of crazy knitters who banded together to do just that for Leona. It was two months in the planning and execution, but it was all worth it. She had no idea.
There is a backstory involving unicorns and their untimely demise at the hands of our lovely Leona. Ask her about it next time you come in.
Now back to our regularly scheduled blog….

Georgie’s Santa Update.
Georgie says she had more important things to do this week than work on Santa. It may have had something to do with a trip to Market and a new baby. I say she needs to stop making excuses and get busy. What say you?
