We’re back, and WOW!

Coming back from vacation is never easy, do you know there doesn’t seem to be anyone here waiting to make up my bed, or turn it down and put a chocolate on the pillow? Also the ever present buffet and the oh so handy kid’s club seem to be missing… Full recap of a great cruise and all the knitting and yarn shopping will commence soon, but in the mean time feast your eyes on what was waiting for me at home!

A big box full of lots of little gifts from my SP!! Almost makes it worth coming home. So I dug all the gifts out of the box and set to work opening. There was lots of ooohing and aaahing as I opened each one and when I was done…

I had this wonderful pile of stuff. I got:

Victorian Lace Today (what a beautiful book!)

A wonderful blank book with a great pink cover

A magnet, magnetic pad, and book mark (all darling)

Some lemon drops

Beautiful Yarn Place Graceful Lace in a wonderful blue and purple

Some (can you believe it) 100% cashmere lace weight from Just our Yarn. It’s beautiful with pinks, blues, purples, and some dusty greens!

Last but not least, a little something for Bunny! A kit for making a pirate scene. What better for a boy just back from a cruise? Better yet, he set right to work at it and it kept him occupied while we got the mail sorted and the air conditioning did it’s magic.

Thanks so much SP!! I know your name now, but a little googling and I haven’t located you yet. Want to give me a hint so I can compose a more personal thank you?

Now, off to do laundry, or perhaps build a buffet…

  2. I’m glad you liked the gifts. Unfortunately, I realized I’d some how lost the card between my house and the UPS store, so unfortunately, I sent it without.

    I love the Victorian Lace today book. I want to make everything.

    I’m glad to see the pirate scene was a hit. I bought a similar one with flowers for my neice.

  3. It’s so odd how the help at home is so slothful.

    I want that book! I keep eyeing it.
