    2014 Holiday Gift Exchange

    I am over the moon with what I received from Janagain! Tis the season and it's true! I really enjoyed getting to know Jan and to find out that we live, as we say in Texas,a stone's throw from each other was a plus. She really went over and beyond the swap expectations and sent me some lovely stuff: A lovely coffee cup filled with assorted k-cup goodies for my keurig A jar of harvest spiced potpurri A crocheted hen potholder A Christmas wreath potholder, where did you get the pattern for this one, it's lovely A pineapple laced doily A pair of Christmas socks A jar of bath salts a bar of Ellen Tracy bar soap and bubble bath A kitchen towel set complete with oven mitt, whisk,spatula,and pastry brush A crocheted hath and body set 5 skeins of cotton yarn A crocheted floral drawstring basket A beautifully crocheted, cherry blossom tree, did you make that? An Annie's Attic handy dandy dishcloth pattern book A double ended crochet hook A beautiful Christmas card. Thank you so much,I love everything I received and it was great learning more about you. I can't figure out how to upload the pictures, I will keep trying

    2014 Holiday Gift Exchange

    I was very surprised that only two people signed up for this swap. In years past, this was very popular! I guess social media can be blamed for this, everyone's attention span can only go so far

    Harvest/Winter Yarn Swap - Shoppin' & Swappin'!

    Hello all, I received the most beautiful swap package from Kathy yesteday! I love everything I received and I know she put a lot of thought into what she sent. I received 7 skeins of superwash wool, in various hues of color and weights, that are in colors that I am going "wow" over. I also received a kit that includes a beautiful hank of alpaca from Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe along with a pattern for a knitted shawl, that's easy enough for me to do! In the box of goodies was also 3 handmade beauties that included a crocheted acorn with a removeable top; the top had a tag that said, "open me" and when I did, there was a tape measure with the words crochet happy written on the front. The other crocheted item was a muliticolored ornament that I will put on my miniature Christmas tree when we put it up. She also knitted me a burgandy dishcloth that I will be using promptly. I also received a beautiful post card from Missouri. Loved it all and thanks for being an awesome partner! Sorry for the poor quality of the picture; first time I've ever taken a picture on my Ipad

    Harvest/Winter Yarn Swap - Shoppin' & Swappin'!

    Well, I must say that the new format here kept me off for a while, simply because I was too busy to try to learn to navigate. However, I'm here now What's going on on Facebook that they can't do here? I don't FB too often, so I don't have a clue.
