  1. When I got home from work this evening, my dad pointed me to a box sitting on the chair. He thought it was a pair of shoes that I had ordered online, but alas, it was not! It was a box packed full of goodies from a sweet and caring Elf in NJ! Words cannot describe how I felt as I unpacked everything--life has been a little rough these last few weeks and getting this package (along with the other packages I've received) have brought me such joy. Thank you SO much! :hug


    My NJ Elf packed my box full of adorable snowmen items (all of which are on display at the moment) as well as two skeins of Bernat Berella 4 in Burgundy, a pattern book for scarves. and a lovely square for my mom's comfortghan. I'm sure I've missed describing something, but it's all in the photo!


  2. I stepped outside to check the mail on this cold, cloudy, rainy day and nearly squealed out loud when I found two packages stuffed into my mailbox!


    I would like to thank a special elf from FL who sent two lovely skeins of yellow and white cotton yarn and beautiful stitch markers! I can't believe I actually have real stitch markers now! No more bobby pins for me! The yarn reminded of sunshine and I couldn't help but smile. :hug


    I would also like to thank a very sweet elf in IL who definitely understands our crazy winters in this state and sent me a beautiful, snuggly fleece blanket! I LOVE the colors and I can't wait to cover up with it! :hug


    Thank you both SO much! I've had a stressful week and it means so much to know that people were thinking of me!

  3. Happy Holidays, everyone! Here is my WishList...

    :2snowman Crochet something for charity. Drop me a PM and let me know what you chose!


    :2snowman anything homemade/handcrafted by you. :) (I'd especially like an ami, just because I don't have one and I don't know how to make them!)

  4. This is my first HIJ wishlist, so I'm pretty excited!


    1. WW yarn to use to make squares for friendshipghans and to make blankets for Project Linus. (preferrably not Simply Soft, only because I have a TON in my stash and quite a few people don't like it for their ghans.) ILTY, Loops and Threads, Vanna, RHSS, etc. would be perfect!


    2. 8" ww squares for my friendshipghan, any color!


    3. a nice pair of craft/yarn scissors.


    4. Bamboo-handled or ergonomic crochet hooks, sizes H, I, or J.


    5. bookmarks! paper, crochet, any kind is welcome! (received one from VA on 7/10/10)


    6. make a scarf for Miles of Smiles - Scarves for Special Olympics (http://milesofsmiles4charity.blogspot.com , and she also has a link here under Crochet for Charity).


    7. anything handmade by you! :)

  5. Hey, I'm in Lebanon and work in Swansea, for those of you in this area...sounds like there are more in this region than I thought!


    I live in Belleville and went to college at McKendree! I think downtown Lebanon would be perfect for a cute and cozy LYS. :)
