Good Mail Day

Do you ever get a package that's so pretty you kind of hate to open it? I did yesterday. Check this out...

Freckled Nest- Package

It's my custom tote from Freckled Nest in that pretty blue paper. It's almost too cute to ruin by opening. Almost.

Freckled Nest Tote

This is my new custom knitting tote. I bought it for myself for my birthday in September. Since it's hand made, they take a while to produce.

Freckled Nest Tote Side

This bag is seriously heavy duty. It's really thick canvas and the pockets are stitched on very securely. Even Eva is taking a peek. Here's the best part...

Freckled Nest Close Up

I asked Leigh-Ann for a bird and my initials. I gave her really rough parameters and she came up with this awesome customized patch. The bird's eye is a little sparkly bead. She has all kinds of designs- skulls, cupcakes, etc. It turned out better than I could have hoped. Thanks, Freckled Nest!

I also got a package from Blue Moon Fiber Arts.

STR Lightweight- Gingerbread Dude

I've been wanted Gingerbread Dude for a couple of years now. Isn't he perfect for Christmas!

STR Lightweight- Rook-y

This is Rook-y. One of the raven series. It's hard to see how pretty it is in the picture. It's black with green, teal, and purple. To me, it kind of looks like oil in water puddles in a parking lot. That's not the most flattering description. But the colors just shimmer and shine through the black. I love it.

Finally, I may have crossed a line here.

Sheep to Shoe- Korppi

It's a Sheep to Shoe kit in Korppi. Black and purple and so amazingly soft.

And, no, I don't spin. Why do you ask?

Love the bag & STR goodies! The more I see Rook-y, the more I like it.

As for that gorgeous roving, are you going down that slippery path?
