I still don’t have any knitting I can share, and I don’t have a newer pic of the boys, so I’m going to use the space of this post to show the generosity of a friend, and answer a question with a photograph.

Back at the beginning of my time home following my latest surgery, I received a lovely package in the mail.  I’d kinda been given a hint that it was coming, but I must have forgotten because I looked at the package on my doorstep thinking “I didn’t order anything!”

I opened it up right away and was so touched to find this inside:

That’s some English Breakfast Disney Wonderland Tea (The Official Unbirthday Tea), and a skein of Brown Sheep Serendipity Tweed (60% cotton/40% wool) in Blueberries.  YUM!  I love tea, and I love blue, and I love the drape of a cotton/wool blend- I think it’s perfect for everything from kids’ clothes to accessories, especially multi-seasonal items.

The card appears to be handmade from fresh pressed flowers, and it is so beautiful.  A huge thank you to JayJay for sending this package to me.  It means so much to have made friends all the way across the world (almost) all thanks to a hobby we share.

Oh, and to answer her question from my last post about Jakob’s favorite machiine: does THIS make it a backhoe?  🙂  Same vehicle, other side.

Totally apropos of nothing, check out this awesome article about Ravelry.  It’s wonderful to see Jess and Casey getting the attention and recognition they deserve, from OUTSIDE the knitting community.  You can view the article here.

  1. Very cool package! Lucky you!

    That’s a huge machine. Was that on your street?

  2. Sorry I haven’t commented yet. Life has been pretty crazy! I’m so glad that my package was a welcome distraction from everything else going on. I just loved the beautiful sweater you sent for RJ, so I wanted to do something nice in return.

    Oh, and yes, that does make it a backhoe! Sorry, I’m kind of particular about these things, thanks to my dad. 😉
