Good Stuff Comes to Those Who are Sick...

Well, I might still be coughing & blowing my nose but I got lots of good stuff today & good news.... First, my new computer has shipped! Woohoo! I should have it one day this coming week!

Second, I got a great stitch marker swap package from Taryn. The theme was "It's Raining Cats & Dogs". She sent me some really cute kitty stitch markers, note pad, kitty calendar, yummy chocolate, and some great Suri Merino yarn with a fingerless glove pattern. She also included some treats & toys for Jasmine! How sweet! Awesome package Taryn, thanks!!! Her package is going in the mail on Monday, along with a few other secret packages....

I finally got a good photo of the stitch markers that Debbie sent me earlier..... aren't they pretty?!

Cass has informed me that she is my "sucky dishcloth exchange pal", her words not mine! Well, actually she said "I suck" :) She felt bad about not keeping in touch through the exchange & emailed me to let me know that my package will be in the mail on Monday. Yeah! Can't wait to see what kind of goodies she has put in there! I told her it was no problem, if I had fallen & hit my head as many times as she has I would probably forget to comment too! ha ha! Just kidding Cass.... you know I love ya & love reading your blog!!!

My Mystery Swap pal, Lani, has also emailed me & let me know that my package was in the mail & I should be receiving it Monday or Tuesday! Oooooh, next week is going to be sooooo great!! All these packages arriving, going to be like Christmas all over again! :) Lani received her package & loved it, thank goodness! I always worry that my swap partners aren't going to like what I send.... she posted a nice Thank You on the Mystery Swap blog.... go check it out if you want to see the goodies that I sent. :)

Ummm.... I have a new tape measure ready to list in my Etsy store, a green one.

I don't think I ever posted these here either, I have Snowball stitch markers in my store now too. I got this idea from some ceramic Christmas ornaments that I made years ago, they are my favorite ornaments.... I think these little cuties turned out great! Although everyone is probably sick of snow now. ha ha!

And I have made a little progress on my shawl/wrap. I'll be working on that tonight too. I haven't made enough progress to warrant another photo yet though. :)

Oh, Chan, I ordered that shrug pattern & some Giant Peach Dream In Color yarn! Hopefully that will be here sometime this week too!! If I have any problems with that pattern I'll be emailing you! ;)

It was beautiful here today, I believe it got up to 75!! Maybe tomorrow will be just as pretty so I can get some more yard work done... need to prune those roses and get some more pine needles raked up. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

I hope you get to feeling better! At least you've got some fun goodies to play with in the meantime. :-)

Those goodies should have you feeling better already, eh?

LOVE the snowmen. If I hadn't gone crazy over the weekend, I'd order them and pretend I have snow.

Can't wait to see your shrug come to be. You won't need help, but if you do, you know where to find me!
