I received the most amazing swap package from a secret pal yesterday. Of course she is no longer a secret. Her name is Susan and she is also know as CouthyQuine on Ravelry. We had shared a few secret emails and I knew I was going to get a special package. In fact, there is more to come because Susan is dying me some lace weight yarn. I look forward to that.
Susan hand stitched this oh-so-cute bag! Hand stitched?!? Amazing tiny stitches, all done for me, I am so delighted. I had this to make in my ravelry queue, but I have since lost it somehow and can’t remember what the pattern is called. It is just adorable and I will use it with such pride.
Look at that skein of super soft and squidgy Alpaca/Silk sock yarn from my favourite shop The Natural Dye Studio. I had to describe myself as a skein of yarn and guess which skein of yarn I decribed myself as?!
The socks for those little tiny sock blocker keyrings were knitted for me and Barry by Susan, she is such a darling. I gave her a bit of a headache with the photo I chose. Cleverly Susan interpreted it as togetherness!
I adore the little tiny purple (they don’t do pink!)needle size measure, I will find something to attach it to.
Susan, you are so kind and thoughtful, I love everything in the parcel, including the handmade boxes ~ THANK YOU!
I feel like I am in fast forward fizzy mode today. In fact I have felt like that all week. I have photo work to deal with, a house to pack up, ironing coming out of my ears and a Photo Shoot for Yarn Forward Magazine to do tomorrow. Actually, I love doing the photo shoots, not so much if it is raining though….send me sunny thoughts please? If you can’t do sunny could you at least send me no rain please?
Maisie went back to her Dad yesterday, there is always loads of washing and ironing to do for her return, even more because of just getting back from France. We went to see Mamma Mia again yesterday. Just Maisie and I…We bought the soundtrack CD at Dover and we all sang our way around France. In the nearly empty cinema, we sang our hearts out, magic, just magic…..
Barry and I went and picked up a little treasure yesterday, can anyone guess what it might be?
