Presents from Afar

Rebecca is so good to me! She wasn't even my Exchange partner. Both of our people pooped out on us. So we decided to exchange with each other.

SEE what she sent me today!

Purple Pimp yarn and the softest natural..I may do fairisle mitts this time. And, the chocolates, bless her heart, are sugarless! She also sent the cutest stickers..I love stickers almost as much as beads. Oh, and a St. Pattys day card that really fit me! My husband got a kick out of it. Sorry it got buried in the picture.

Speaking of beads... I made 25 more beads for Village Yarn and Tea. They are making wonderful use of them. Hopefully these will last them awhile. They are going threw them amazingly fast! I'm flattered that people like them that much. In all the years I've done ceramics and Pottery, beads were not something I spent to much time on. Funny thats whats selling now.
For some reason I can't fathom I bought $100 of cutesy beads ..lil glass butterflys, latte cups, tea cups, lady bugs and penguins and teapot findings. We'll see what I come up with. I'm thinking either stitch markers or bracelets. Either would be cute.. or..ahem.. BOTH.

made from ceramic clay with BIG hole in the middle so you can get a knitting needle threw it. Lots of different kinds but mostly with flowers, leaves, birds etc.
