The fur-girls know when something in the mail is theirs. I guess we all had a clue, just from looking at the stamps!
I thought the Brittany was a basset at first glance, in part because I know the sender from our basset hound group on Ravelry. Still pretty awesome though, huh?
And their were special Sissy-approved treats in the box too, but this is after all MY blog, so I thought I’d share a photo of what was in there for me!
I had a little trouble getting a good photo, but if you’re on Ravelry, here’s a link to the original project page. Natalie no longer has a basset to help her, so she was able to get some great photos of just the bag.
(Why yes, the bag IS sitting on the DIVA. Your point?)
The above photo is too dark, but the colors are fairly accurate. This photo is over-exposed, but gives you a better view of the details.
If you’re wondering about the post’s title, the pattern name is Around About. It’s a fun, functional felted bag, made from the remnants of some wool I sent Natalie when she wanted to make a felted bed for the new feline resident in their home. I’m pretty sure I got the better end of this deal, even before Natalie pointed out that I am not caring for an aged cat!
How was your weekend? I had a great time at Mistletoe Market and thoroughly enjoyed the holiday tea also at the Boar’s Head. I had a great, loose jasmine tea, and the setting – company included – couldn’t have been better. We had an intimate little room with a fireplace, perfect for a damp, chilly tea time. I’ll share my MM finds another day… after I get some photos in decent lighting, probably with my “real” camera rather than just my phone’s camera.
