Are there any two sweeter words in the English language?
Well, yes. Actually, there are. Quite a few, really..."kiss me"..."free lunch"..."chocolate overload"..."with sprinkles"....
Sorry. Where was I? Oh, yes! New stash!
I got quite a lot of goodies at Stitcher's Celebration, including some great door prizes.
Lelia's blog here. I was lucky enough to meet her there, although neither of us realized we followed each others' blogs until we got home (or maybe she did and was just too nice to point out my ditziness)!
While we were there, we took a quick trip to a nearby needlework (and knitting!) shop, Needle Craft World. We met the wonderful and very energetic owner, Cathy, who offered us snacks (and wine!) I honestly wasn't going to shop, but there was an Erica Michaels trunk show there...and, you know, I like to do my part to help out small businesses.
Then, yesterday, a lovely lumpy package arrived from the UK:
The Crafty Geek. She was kind enough to send all these wonderful colors of sock yarn, as well as a pattern by tiny owl knits (she offered the Bee Keeper's Quilt, of course, but I already had it. =) It was twice as much as I expected...I was totally blown away! They are all different kinds of fibers; I'm so excited to try them all out.
|I bought stuff, but really, people gave me more stuff than I bought. That's some kind of progress, right? RIGHT??|
