Who doesn't love flowers and candy?
That's all thanks to my secret pal! SHe sent me a package containing only candy and flowers! What fun right? Wait until you see this fun stuff! I was so excited to see the mailman drop off a package yesterday! And then I opened it!
Lots of flowers and candy! Adorable flower stitch markers in a small altoid can. Love them! A wonderful gerbera daisy flower felting kit! So cute! A flower necklace and flower erasers! Plus 2 candy sticks from her vacation to Montana (my husband swiped the licorice one... his favorite), a Choxie truffle bar with chilis that we ate together last night, and a crazy Idaho Spud candy. We just saw how these were made on Food Network last week! I am saving this one. Luckily husband doesn't like coconut! Oh and she also sent a sugar facial scrub that is now next to the bathroom sink ready to be used today! And the card was a sunflowery picture too! Thank you thank you SP! What a fun and summery package you sent!!
I have been working on my Opal Ripple socks with sock yarn from another secret pal round. I even used the reinforcing thread for the heels and will use it for the toes as well. I like the little varigated effect it is having. I am showing you a close up of the ripple pattern. I like using the self striping yarns for these ripple pattern. Nice effect. I should be finished with them this weekend along with the book I am reading (Master Butcher's SInging CLub by Louise Eldrich -- I am loving it so far!)
