What a PERFECT kit!! Bartlebean is quite the stalker, her picks were spot on!! Speaking of being sneaky, look who I caught with her paw in the treat bag!! She LOVES her treats!!
For a pattern, she gave me Ice Queen, a BEAUTIFUL lace cowl with bead. I cannot wait to start! She also included a calender of Washington, so pretty!

Here is the gorgeous yarn (mohair dyed wonderful shades of lavender and green, sorry about the bad pic) and tools to complete the project. Check out the row counter!

The coolest stitch markers, each representing a Horcrux! She made these, can you believe that?

I am a HUGE bear fan, how did you know? And look at all of the bear goodies!

And the piece de la resistance!! Seriously, is this the most AMAZING sock you have ever seen??

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I absolutely LOVE this kit! You truly spoiled me rotten!

My kit made it safely to my partner!! Feels good to have that checked off my To-Do List!! I also took my loom out last weekend and it works again!! When down in Arizona, the wood shrunk so much that the heddles would fall right through in the up position. Well now that we are back home, it fits perfectly!! So excited to be back weaving again! Off to sleep, I get to learn to make lefse starting tomorrow!! Did I mention how happy we are to be home?!?!?!?!

Sweet dreams!

Happy Friday!

It is finally Friday! Lots to do this weekend. I actually am getting a little head start because I stayed home sick today. Tired of being sick so hoping a little rest (okay sleeping in until noon may qualify for more than a little rest), my ever so talented nurse Lizzie (see above) and some good drugs from my doctor will help get me back to healthy!

Got my shipment of flower bulbs, SO EXCITED!! I need to pull out some of the bulbs that are not winter hardy and redo the flower bed. Should be a lot of fun! I also hope to roast some tomatoes, garlic and peppers so I can freeze them for winter. I also may end up canning some tomatoes depending on how many I can get my hands on! Still looking for something to make with my fennel bulb, any ideas? Also ordered some fabric to make Lizzie a new bed. Lots of fun projects to get started on!

Now off to work on my last projects for my swap partner! Hoping to finish them up this weekend!
