I received my package from Summersgirl on Thursday, which was great because it had been an ugly day at work and it certainly cheered me up. I was going to take photos, but somehow the time escaped from me so here I am, sans photos.
Summersgirl sent me two lovely yellow skeins of Sensations Bellezza Collection "Camelia". It looks as if it will become a shrug for me. I love the soft colors dotted through out the yarn. She also sent me 4 lovely blue stitch holders. Even if I did have a photo of them, it wouldn't do them justice. She made them like clip on earrings, which should work well for crocheting. And I'd probably wear them as earrings except I would be afraid to lose them.
The cool little surprise she sent is _neat_. Let me give you a little background - apparently some of the people I work with have boats (leisure boats? It's for sailing, not for fishing) and they have pictures of their boats. I have joked about bringing in a picture of "my yacht" (I don't own a boat). SUmmersgirl sent me a counted cross-stitch mini kit - of a yacht! Now when I complete it, I can hang it at work and point proudly to the picture of my yacht;)
