Consolation Package

I’ll admit it; I’m jealous and often a poor sport.  Today, I’m green because Anne and Jessi are meeting up in person AGAIN.  I’ve reminded them both that they have my phone numbers, and not so subtly suggested a text message with a photo would be nice.  However, there’s no need to pout, because as the regular readers know, I’m a rather spoiled fart…

That colorful postcard in the bottom right is from Nichole and her other half, reminding us that we should/could have been with them in Charlotte last week.   The rest is from Jessi and her family.  (I get so tickled when Paypal prints the mailing label; it appears the Knight is receiving a package from Mr. Alabama Fiber Dreams.  SNOL!!)  I’d ordered the two skeins to the right, but the rest was just part of the on-going friendly thinking of you thing Jessi and I have been doing.

Missing from the photo are the cookies for the pups, because the dogs were “helping” me take photos, and Sissy cannot be trusted to stay on the deck floor.  Also missing are the Knight’s Raisinettes, because he had duty crew at the firehouse and wanted some munchies.

Have you EVER seen anything cuter?!  Sissy and I had words over this gal before I even took these photos.  It’s got a little code to plug in online, so I’ll have to do that tonight and see what it’s all about.  She’s going to have to live somewhere my little leaper can’t reach.


Then, there were the roosters.  I’d not seen this beautiful tape measure before, and I must confess that as much as I love roosters, I’ve taken fiendish delight in poking this one in the eye to move the tape!  The ones on the towel are beautiful, and shall become my new bread basket cloth. 


Oh – and the third skein of yarn is from Fearless Fibers.  Another great Etsy dyer!  There are so many of you out there, I do believe I could never buy from the big guys again, but see…  I have this yarn problem…

What does the weekend hold?  Not much.  Stardust is nearing the end, and I have organizing that didn’t happen last weekend to do.  I’m hoping that the Knight will want to take some sort of adventure tomorrow, as we’ve not had a day to wander together for a while.  How ’bout you?

And a very happy birthday to Shawnee!  Scoot over and wish her many more, and enter her contest.  It takes a special woman to give someone else a present on HER birthday!

    Awesome ‘presents’ there…the yarn is beautiful and the little sheep I just want to squish it looks so soft.

    I hope that you guys have a wonderful weekend. My hubby is heading up to NJ to golf with a friend for a few days so I’m coming into Richmond to visit with Beth – it’s been over a week since I’ve seen her if you can believe that!

    As far as knitting goes, we got the May installment from Rockin’ Sock Club and those will be started today at lunch. I have photos on my blog…BEEEUUUUUTIFUL!

    Wonderful people have wonderful friends. It comes as no surprise to me that you received such wonderful packages. And I promise that I’ll be sending your blockers out soon. This week has been one headache over another.

    That is a fabulous package. That was just a little mean of Nicole to rub it in that you couldn’t get away!

    I’m trying not to buy yarn right now, but that yarn . . .

    Weekend, well it’s my Friday off, but since I only workd 1.5 days this week (software updates, dentist appointment & jury duty) I’m planning on heading in for the morning. Then mani-pedi, cinderellas and finally sewing. Hopefully with a new dress to show at the end of the weekend. JB has to work tomorrow, hope you and The Knight manage to have an adventure! g

    what awesome presents!

    And YES, you SHOULD have been in Charlotte!

  5. YOU are a lucky woman! As usual everything is lovely, and I’m surely not alone in being a bit jealous. Give us a cloe-up of the little markers, will you? The teapot looks adorable, but I can’t quite see the others.

    Fun package. I love that tape measure too. Maybe I should start collecting them. They don’t take up much space….

    What a great package! Very cool dog bookmark and I love the blue/green/etc yarn…really pretty 🙂

    I really need to get some cleaning/organizing done this weekend, too. Hopefully I’ll actually be able to get to it…

    Have a great weekend!
