I've just received the most wonderful package from my SP. She'd tipped me off that something was on its way and warned me that it would come under the name and address of a friend of hers. So I must begin by saying "thank you" to "the friend of Thersa Robinett". Theresa's friend has already sent me fabulous yarn that she spun herself. Now she's sent me a needle sheath from Lantern Moon and, better still, she's made another gift herself, a wonderful needle case for my circular needles. Words can't do either of these items justice, so I'll try to get some pictures sorted out somehow but the care and attention that have gone into the case for the circulars is astonishing. I've really got a wonderful Pal here!
Also on the SP front, Bobbi, our group's hostess, has sent us a question to answer:
Someone has stolen your stash and all your books: now what are you going to do? Well, I think I'd sit down and cry, but I suspect that husband and step-daughter would throw a party to celebrate suddenly getting about 25% of their house back. (I exagerrate but only slightly...)I think I'd have to put some music on and dance the fury out of my system. And then I'd see whether my drop spindle and wool tops had gone too. If not, I'd set to work with those, even though I'm totally rubbish at spinning. Actually, felting might be quite theraputic, too.
Bobbi goes on to ask ;What would be the first thing you'd replace? What would you live without? I think that I'd have to get some needles and yarn first (surprise!) but, more specifically, some short wooden needles (peace fleece/brittany) and some Kureyon or Silk Garden yarn. Watching all those colours unfurl would cheer me up and destress me in no time. And what would I live without? Think it would have to be extra-chunky yarn and big needles,as my fingers are starting to find these painful in anything but short doses. Oh, and if any of the stolen books relate to how to do a PhD the burglar can keep those. They didn't help me but might give him/her something better to do than going round pilfering yarn and books!
