The Best Way I Know How

How do you say thank you to someone who selflessly helped you out, almost every day, for three months? Why, try to make them something special. So here it is, the Lazy Daisy neck warmer for my friend Chani, who drove me to work every day for the three months (when she never had to leave the house!)

Beautiful buttons and so nice to make something for the people who make our lives easier. I just realized you're in NJ - so am I! Not very close but not to far away.
