Unexpected Treasurers

Life is back to normal for most of us here in the county after our recent floods.

My birthday was an interesting day - I'll have to write about it later though because I have to go get ready to go to our neighbors for a little bluegrass sing-a-long - but here is a little story about an unexpected treasure that I got in the mail last month.

Oh, look, the postman left a package on the front porch.

What on earth could it be? I haven't ordered anything from lately....

Actually this surprise present came just before Christmas, but with the snow and everything, the idea of showing it to you got set aside.
Wrapped in luxurious gold paper with a beautiful satin ribbon - what could it be???

This beautiful book was a gift from our frend Donna and I have all that new shetland/alpaca wool to spin up - doesn't that sould like it would be perfect for crocheted lace?

I have gotten "more than several" books for Christmas and over the past month. I need to sit down and make a plan- when to read, when to crochet and when to spin. Oh, my, way too many things to do.

Any word from Kathy on how her DH is doing? I'm keeping them in my prayers!
