A HUGE Day

So much has happened since last we spoke...Wednesday at knitting Marbeth Owen (not pictured-Where was my camera?) and I celebrated our birthdays together and surprised the group with homemade tamales, Dunkin donuts and then others brought lots of cookies. It was a great way to have a birthday without having to clean house or send invitations. We do eventually get down to knitting, whenever there's a lull.




My friend Judy showed off her Koigu Turkish Bed Socks, which are for wearing with clogs, making more sense, since she is not Turkish in the least. Marie was deaccessioning and I became the new owner of this fluffy silver yarn, plus the recently dyed wool from our dye workshop.
 Then Irene gave me this juicy tell-all book about someone named Angelina, who loves tattoos, and Deidre gave me this magazine which I am happy to take and knit something from.  These were 'not necessarily' birthday gifts, but I am taking them to be anyway.  Then I found myself inexplicably on my way to Sew Be It, the yarn/quilt shop in Ringgold GA.


I was in search of charm packs but went for fat quarters which I can cut up myself. And just as I was checking out, I found a jelly roll of Jane Sassaman fabrics, and of course I could NOT pass those up. I am getting ready for the annual Quilt Along with Melody in February, and that's my excuse.
 A few days ago I ordered these yo-yos from http://www.etsy.com/shop/backyardprims and they came in the mail yesterday. I plan to incorporate them into something...obviously. You know when you just have to have something and you don't have a plan? I am the queen of that.
  We interrupt this giftalogue for a look at some scrappy triangles.  These are leftovers from something that I made last February and now feel the urge to use. I have a bag of triangles just waiting to become more like this. When I made my recent patchwork pillow, I felt very happy, content to be sewing and so satisfied with the result and want that feeling again.







Also in the mail were these two delicious batik pieces from my friend Edith who just returned from a trip to Kyoto and Taipei. Am I the lucky duck or what? Quack!

 And the Soho publishing company sent me this book, just cuz,  and it has quilts from my famous pals and former students who are now also famous because of their wonderful art.
 Two cards one from my sister in law and the other from Frieda Anderson. I guess I am officially now a pug person. Aren't they funny?


What a day I had. I will be basking in my riches, in friends and goodies, into the new year. I am so thankful.

  3. Well, I can see from all your "riches" yesterday that you won't be getting much accomplished today because you'll be reading and planning and reading some more...LOL.

    Put your feet us and have a cuppa and relax for a change. :)
