The Little Things
As promised, here is what came in the mail the other day! The second half of my birthday present from my mom. I saw this quilt in her LQS when I was home around the holidays and just thought it was so beautiful. Sure enough, I now have one sitting on my couch! Can you tell I love blues?! I know this will get lots of use and cuddle time over the years.. so thanks mom :) Oh, and you just have to look at the stitch detailing by clicking on the pictures. I love how the thread is variegated!
And speaking of the mail, I felt like Santa Claus on Thursday morning, when I headed to the post office and work with this HUGE Crate and Barrell bag filled with 36, yes, 36 packages. Scott and I were just laughing at the fact that I could hardly carry it since the bag is so long... Thank you to all who purchased some Sunshine Yarns on Tuesday! Looks like I need to get to dyeing up some more for next week!
And just a quick note for those Sockapalooza people out there... I FINALLY have my yarn for my sock pal. I dyed up this pretty little number on Monday and think she is going to love it! I've been putting off dyeing up yarn for her since I couldn't decide if I wanted to do a pattern with striping yarn, or something with a nice variegation. So, I just went with the variegation.. but still need to find a nice pattern.
If you are in Boston, have a wonderful Spring Day today! Woohoo!
