Alora Loves Her New Sweater!
Who doesn't love this face? Poor girl's been sick and teething as of late, hence the glassy eyes. She's still adorable though!
When I embroidered on those flowers, I didn't anticipate that they'd become a play thing for her, but hey! Who's arguing? She can't pull them off, just pull them tight so they make for something fun to do while getting a fresh diaper and such. hehe
I Got A Birthday Package From Jenny!
(from Jenny's Blog On Knitting)
It arrived looking like this and I was appropriately worried. lol That little label on the top read "may have been delivered damaged." GULP! Not to fear though, everything inside was squishy and non-breakable!!
That GORGEOUS bag in the back was hand sewn by Jenny's sister, Sanna! How gorgeous is that fabric?? It's going to be my new sewing notions bag! YAY! There was of course tons of Chocolate to be had, but most didn't make it to the photo, unfortunately. YUM The green yarn is a 100% wool of Swedish origin called Kampes. I think it's going to be my Christmas Tree skirt that I posted about in my book review! (Jenny? I might need some red too! grin ) The Lin in the front is another Swedish yarn that I already had some of in my stash and had inquired about getting more through Jenny's LYS but held off because I didn't have anything planned for the yarn yet. Well... ta da! :D And the merino is from Drops- super soft! I'll find a project to use it on for sure!
Then, I was putting everything away from the picture taking and found these guys hanging out in the bag! I missed them the first time and I was all like, "There's MORE??!?"
Thank you SO SO Much to Jenny and her sister Ana!! I feel so special to deserve a great birthday package like this one!! :D
