Better Late Than Never...

Guess What?!

I got to meet Rudy!

Of course I got to see Robin too. :) They were here at the beach last week.... And they are coming back next month for another visit & we are planning a day of yarn shopping & activities.

I have also been a real slacker! Kathy sent me a wonderful birthday package that I totally forgot to post about! In my defense (and I might be contacting Mr. B's attorney about this if I get in trouble, SNOL) that was one busy week, the week of my birthday. That was the week that our Marine graduated from bootcamp, summer crazy season was still in full force at work, blah blah blah.... That's my story & I'm sticking to it!

So without further adoo....

Kathy sent me some gorgeous spinning fiber, some swiffer sweaters (for some reason the woman got the crazy idea that I actually clean this house! LOL), a totally cute birthday cupcake bag, & a sweet kitty birthday card.

Aren't they sweet? Awwwww.....


The cupcake bag is now living with my spinning wheel. It's perfect! It clips right on there & holds the current fiber that I'm spinning. You should advertise your sockit bags for spinning too Kathy! :)
If you don't have one of Kathy's Sock it Bags yet, you really NEED one! Click on the linky there & get yourself one. You won't be disappointed.

And here is a closeup of the pretty fiber she sent.



Then when I got home today I had another box waiting on me!! Late Birthday prezzies!!! Gotta love those, spreads the love out a little more instead of using it all up on one day. LOL
Jessi sent me an awesome late Birthday box! Here is what was inside...

A cute kitty birthday card, a purple Ravelry project bag, some yummy Sock Yarnista yarn in the Peweter Amethyst colorway, and a sticker that says "Friends pick you up when you fall. Best friends laugh cuz they're the ones who tripped you", ha ha ha!

Here is a closeup of the cute bag, I hope you can see it.

And here is a closeup of the yummy yarn. The photo is a little more brown than it really is, it was starting to get dark by the time I got home...

Thank you so much Kathy & Jessi! You gals are the BEST! I just don't know what I'd do without my bloggy friends.... I'd be very lonely. :)

Great gifts, and WHY hadn't you told me about clipping a bag to my wheel, hmmmmm????

('Scuze me Uncle... I need to go home and re-organize my spinning supplies... No? Oh well...)
