The most amazing of which is the knitted purse/bag below. All the more special as it comes from a staff member who is currently on extended leave after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She is doing really well (mid-way through her treatment) and is finding ways to occupy herself learning to crochet and knit (her mother is teaching her - but I have been engouraging). This is her first knitted item and she made it all herself (including the little rosette).
Another gift of note was a Thank-You card with a gift-voucher to a certain city bookstore. The card was heart-felt and thanked me for the opportunities, support and mentoring provided. At the end was a note that the bookstore in question has a 20% discount on craft books this week.
These simple gifts and the cards accompanying them have been wondeful because they acknowledge how well I have gotten to know these people and they me.
