KTS3 Swap & Scott's Mtn Pin!

Our office was closed yesterday, so my KTS3 package couldn't be delivered...so it arrived today! Will Pillage for Yarn has been such a cool swap pal...we weren't secret, we knew each other all along...here's the box...notice the cool cheetah/leopard tissue? (does she know me or what?)

Look at this stitchmarker. I've got to find out the details on it - it's amazing...I believe it's blown glass - soooooooooooo cool!

And here's the rest of the haul (yes, that's what it is...)

3 kinds of tea - Kusmi tea in Bouquet of Flowers #108, Petrushka (did Rainy know I used to dance? MUST be!), and Duchess's English Breakfast...a rose teapot (for one) a tea strainer (I think I might have mentioned I didn't have one!), a Ritter Dark Chocolate and hazelnut bar (I LOVE THESE) a Dagoba extra dark chocolate bar (Birdsong has mentioned these but I've never tried one...can't wait!!). THEN THE YARN!!! OH MY. STR lightweight in Nodding Violet, and a gorgeous Filatura Di Crosa wool blend called LOVE in the prettiest shade of muted amethyst! It's soooooooooo soft!! And in the far right corner of the photo? The card is one of my favorite Steinlen cat prints (I collect them, Rainy - I don't think you knew THAT!

I do believe, without a doubt that I have the very very best KTS3 pal! Yes, I do!

Thank you so much Rainy - this was such fun! I hope you enjoyed my swap gift 1/2 as much as I did yours...

As I had client duties to attend to tonight, I was also able to drop by my post office box (it's in the same part of town...) and what was there???


Only the very sweetest shawl pin from my good friend Chris! And she dropped in a set of 4 stitch markers, too...You're too sweet Chris! They are stunning...notice the amethyst stones, and the pink and red Austrian crystals...I just had to have more of Chris' work - it's fabulous, you know? You DON'T??? Well, then go right now! You MUST!

Chris, you see, will work with you to design just what you like - She let me pick my favorite colors in gems and crystals - my signature colors of purple, red, and pink (Purple for Lupus, Red for heart disease, Pink for women's cancers).

(and those stitch markers? well...they include the clean white crystals which represent lung cancer - they were a surprise - Chris is as good a "secret pal" as Rainy - she reads my blog, too!!! lololol! I lost my aunt to lung cancer last summer, almost a year ago...)

Two of the best ladies in the world and I can count them as friends - you can too - drop by their blogs, Chris' shop! Two very very sweet and talented gals!
(((Hugs)))

I'm so glad you liked everything :-)

The stitch marker is to ward your knitting from the evil eye - I plan to sell them on my etsy store eventually.

I didn't know you collect that artist. So do I!! :-D I was just sharing something that is one of *my* favorites. Yay!

I thought that eye bead looked like the Egyptian hieroglyph for warding off evil. Everything is so beautiful!

That is the coolest stitch marker I ever saw! I hope Will Pillage will sell them and let us all know - we all need protection from the Evil Eye!

Your haul is delicious - even the inedible parts are delicious!

I think the eye bead is a lampwork glass bead. Very cool!

What wonderful things! Enjoy!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
