This weeks Thankful Thursday is dedicated to Paula, my "Scavenger Hunt Swap" upstream pal.
My package arrived Friday and I waited until Sunday when I was home to open it. First of all it came with kitty kat packaging tape - way cool.
When I opened it up WOW - it was soooo pretty inside that I just sat and knitted while looking down for about an hour enjoying how pretty it was! Than, wanting to enjoy it that much longer, I finally opened 1 item - the "Something Local".
This bag is beautiful!!! I was so enthused that after looking at how it was constructed (you can always tell a sewer, they check out construction). I than though of Tricia and that she would probably like it too. So I had to hop up right away and start my posting for the week.
(by the way, Paula has written out all the instructions, visit her at her blog
and look, I did the linky thingy TWICE)
So, today I am miserable (feeling icky) so I decided to make myself feel better by opening the rest of the box......oooohhhhhh
Paula sent me
- * some short sock needles, which I've been eyeing to purchase myself.
- * A cute "black sheep" tape measure, which I've wanted but won't buy myself (funny the things we will and won't purchase sometimes isn't it).
- * Some of my favorite chocolate and the cutest "Green" choc frog.
*A really cute pair of "french fry" stitch markers (which I will take a pic of but I want to get this posted)
* And THIS beautiful skein of yarn. In Blue (imagine, me and blue) 450 beautiful yards of "Smooshy" goodness... I might be able to get 2 pair of summer socks out of it, we'll see.
So, in other news, since its taken me a week to get this up - finished ACLS class this weekend. One of those things required my job, but something that I really never use (I have a Dr. in the ER at all times, I will never do 90% of what they teach). So every time I have to recert (2 yrs) it is very stressful and it is only done on days... yes I was up at 6am 2 days in a row. I did pass, thank God - and I did repeatedly, and I have now taken my nap.
Chat soon all - btw, its teasing spring - 40 degrees and sunny.
