The rain has stopped and the sun is trying to come out. AND...my swap package from Kathy B arrived! I have been spoiled rotten and I love it - lol. Sorry the pictures are such crap - I quickly took them last night before running out to yoga and didn't look at them till now (when I am at work and the lovely presents are at home).
So happy that Kathy sent me one of the felted bags she has come across...she knew I had been drooling over the one she sent to Nancy! But there's more! Sweet note cards, a darling stocking key chain that she knit (I may save this for my Christmas Tree though...) a lovely sachet of lavender which has already been tucked away in the chest where I keep (most of) my yarn and gorgeous scissors (and she didn't even know that I have a scissor collection!!).
The felted bag will work beautifully as a sock project bag...or a bag to store knitterly things in...it would even work as a little lingerie bag when I travel. The scissors don't show up in the pic above (everything is such lovely shades of lavender and deep purple), so here is a shot of them:
A Seahorse!!! These are perfect for my sampler stitching.
Kathy - thank you so much for 1) organizing the swap and 2) sending me such perfect surprises. I love everything. And...your package will be going out today (probably UPS from work because I can't escape to get to the post office...).
Meanwhile, I'm moving slowly this morning - last night's yoga class was a real workout. There were just 3 of us in the class (the past two weeks there have only been 2 of us!!). It's like having private lessons.
Finally, Tyg brought a bird into the house this morning. Oy! It was still a little dark outside when I opened the door to let him in. He did not go directly to his food which is unusual, but ran into the bathroom. Sometimes he does that when he wants the water turned on to drink from the faucet, so I followed him in and there on the floor was a bird (dead, luckily). I so hate this part of having an outdoor cat. I know it's only natural, but I would prefer not to see it. I scooped up Tyg and put him outside then got a ton of paper towels and a bag and disposed of the poor little bird (I think it was a sparrow - I tried not to look too closely). When Tyg came back in he was going crazy trying to find his prize.
So, I need to practice my yoga breathing and calm down a bit. And I need to get back to my work...another busy day.
Have a great week!
