Behold the package!!
EEEEEEE!!!!!! *squeals of excitement*
I had not blogged yet about this particular package whinging it's way across the oceans to me from the U.S, because I only placed the order on the 7th Jan - so it got here amazingly quickly!
So I ripped open the package with much glee and released my three new little friends!!
Mr Happy Toast, Happy Cloud, and Sad Storm Cloud!
I had also ordered Heidi's 'zine on spinning :)
I am SO thrilled to bits with them! They sat on the couch last night, after their introduction to skoot and the household, and everytime I glanced over at them, or saw them in passing I couldn't hold back my massive grin!! THEY'RE GORGEOUS!! I adore how Heidi's work brings wonder and delight to everyday objects, and injects life with joy and fun!
I had been wanting to invest in some of Heidi's work for myself for a while now, but could never justify spending the money on such luxury items, until the birthday money from my Grandparents came my way!! So I decided this was the time to buy soemthing super special and lovely that I would be unlikely to buy otherwise - so I picked My Paper Crane!
With the money left over, I decided a knitting book was in order. I checked out Amazon for their prices and availability for the two I had in mind, and compared to Borders in town (where my Satdee knitting group is) amazon was hands down FAR cheaper! So I decided I'd get both books!! hehe!!
So there's another package winging its way towards me! This one containing Yarnplay by Lisa Shobhana Mason
and Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman & Mel Clark
Stunning invites they've made up - beautiful ribbon and each has a smokey glass bead at the top! Plus a little matching RSVP slip and mini envelope - how darling!
Another exciting little goodie arrived in the post too - the invitation to my aforementioned lovely mates Liz and Paul's wedding! Hooraaaayy!! :)
Right! Now I'm off home to pack ready for our long weekend away down south-ish for Australia Day! Whee! But of course, must stop off via the SLYS (somewhat local yarn store - as it's actually a bit of a hike for me!) to get some supplies for knitting this beanie for skoota!
Having some troubles finding another ball of matching red pure wool in the right ply to finish off his scarf *grumble grumble* so thought I'd start on his beanie in the meantime and LOVE this spiral pattern from FrogMonkey for him!
