I’ve been the happy recipient of both sewing and knitting goodies by three wonderful gals. For two of the three gift-givers, this post is shamefully overdue and for that I continue to feel guilty. But I figured better late than never, right???
You all probably recall my 1st blogger meetup with the fab Tilly last month. When I arrived home from work yesterday I found a surprise package in my mailbox from the lady. :)
She knows me too well! A cute pattern, polka dot piping!!!!, and some 40’s looking buttons. YAY! I think I would probably love anything with polka dots on it, so this piping is a big hit.
Thanks Tilly! :)
This is the one super kind gift that is really overdue! Vicki was on the hunt for a pattern back in January/February
Back in February, Vicki of Vicki Kate Makes was on the hunt for the Secretary Pattern, which I had in my stash. I sent it to her since I knew I wasn’t going to be able to get to it in the near future and I was also happily paying another favor forward.
Right as I got back from my Florida vacation, I found this happy knitting package at my door.
Being so busy unpacking from vacation and trying to catch up at work & home, it got lost in the shuffle and I never properly thanked her with a blog mention. So to Vicki of Vicki Kate Makes… THANK YOU! I love the yarn and the cute belt buckle. :)
Last but not least is Andrea of Stitch Parade… Technically this wasn’t a surprise package since I had won this lot of yarn in a giveaway but I had never posted it up online and I thought it high time I do.
Back in January I threw my hat into the ring to win some extra yarn that Andrea was giving away. Loving yarn, alpacas, and pink I was so excited when I won. I had no idea how much she was sending me, I photographed 7 skeins here but there’s at least another 4-5 in my stash from what she sent. SO MUCH! I think I can make a jumper and even have enough for a great color-work project. Thanks so much Andrea, I love it. Soo soft and squishy.
Be sure to click on the “alpaca” link above. Felix and I attended an Alpaca event in 2009… so many alpacas and silky yarn! You won’t be sorry…. heh
*Sigh* I feel better now. Thank you so much you generous ladies you! You rock!
