GOODIES FROM MY SP8 PAL
Look at all the goodies my SP8 Pal sent me!!!!!! Gardening hand tools with a handpainted ladybug and pale purple daisy on each handle!!!! WOW . . . I wonder if she handpainted them herself???? . . . my husband told me I no longer had an excuse for working in the yard (he just doesn't understand the way of the yarn and how that comes first-well almost first) . . . these tools are too cute to get dirty . . . I think I may frame them behind glass with a "break in case of emergency" sign (OMG I beginning to sound like Martha Stewart) . . . my SP8 Pal also took into consideration how hot and thirsty one gets working in the yard and so she gifted me with the cutest teapot I have ever seen . . . it has little red ladybugs all over the body of it and one ladybug on the lid top . . . I can't wait to serve tea from it (right now I am going to put ice tea in it) . . . my pal also sent me chocolates . . . but as you can see from the picture on the right the chocolates did not survive the heat from her house to mine . . . . DRATS!!!!!!! THANK YOU SECRET PAL FOR THE CUTE GIFTS. . . YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!!
Not much happening on the knitting front . . . "roadkill" has completed his felting day spa treatment and is just waiting to get stuffed . . . I still have a red purse to finish knitting and felting (this purse was knitted from the top down - I only have to do the bottom now) . . . and I have finished one pink bootie for my granddaughter with the matching one still to knit . . . I am already planning my next projects . . . a short sleeve pullover sweater for myself and a scraf (I sent a pattern to my spoilee and I am going to use it for myself also) . . . more info on these later . . . I know, I know . . . I have some more projects to do but I have been afraid to check out my huge knitting bag to see exactly what all is in it . . .
Have to go and get ready for work (that's the thing that keeps me in yarn) . . . . so . . . ladybug kisses and keep on knitting!!!!!!!!
