I have better pictures of some things and also some pictures of fibery birthday things, but first I'll start with mail call:
From my swap pal. I promptly ignored dishes and laundry and sat down to read the first couple of pages. Unfortunately I had to put it down to help the girls and to knit a bit. I'm planning to go see her at Webs at the end of May (already registered), so I really look forward to reading more. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
this box sat in the corner until my husband got home. Earlier this week we put a quick order in at knitpicks. As most of the order was for him, I figured it could wait until he could open it. Pictures tomorrow perhaps.
For my birthday I got many fun things, but as far as fibery goes:
A PVC Niddy-Noddy (actually two of them), so I can put the yarn up and wash them while on the niddy-noddy.
...and my husband brought me to Critations. I picked out some brown and some white alpaca roving.
Some more birthday goodness:
basement reorganization so I can sew and we can have family unity (something for everyone to do)
the hancock fabric by my house is being closed so everything is marked down. These are for a new quilt. The one currently on our bed is getting frayed.
Beautiful fabric I couldn't resist (especially since there was only that much of it). ...and fabric for handkerchiefs.
I did finish sewing the two skirts I had previously cut out, so these are the last of the fabric for skirts for the girls. of course, I then have dress material and some material for me too.
While I was at the fabric store I picked up a zipper and button to finish off my bag. I just need to knit up a swatch with a button hole and felt it first.
Some better pictures of the items from last post.
...and finally, some Dulaan items. Most of these were knit by my mother, but I will be weaving in ends on both her items and mine, and then mailing them off sometime relatively soon. There will probably be a couple more items before mailing day, but there's 16 there tammy. :)
