prezzies in the mail!

so not feeling at ALL super today--left work because i was having some anxiety rising issues and got home and am now feeling mega nauseated. but to make me feel a bit better, i got my package from my ravelry karma yarn swap partner, a lovely girl named curlie. it is just BOOOOOOOTIFUL, i can't even believe.


in here: misti baby alpaca, which is SOOOOOOOO soft and SOOOOOOO fat, i lurves. malabrigo--YUM. some local alpaca, LOVE me the local everything. LOTS of chocklits, which i shall hide from the boy and eat when i'm not feeling nauseated. they are from trader joe's, which i've heard lots about but still haven't quite figured out what it is comparable to in canada. sylvi, a pattern which i just got yarn for, but hadn't gotten the actual PATTERN--curlie must have read my mind. ;)

there was also a 6 pack holder from trader joe's for beeeeeer, which is HILARIOUS because here in ontario, you can get these same 6 packs for wine bottles at the LCBO, so this is a baby version of a bigger 6 pack holder i already have and use often! hahahahhaha--maybe too much booze? heck no!

and, of course, there was a lovely note which made me laugh, because i've been trained by my gran to read the note or card first, so i was all pawing through the package and guiltily saw/opened the note which said "open the yarnz first, then read this"...which I clearly did NOT need to be told twice and ripped into the package! :D

i also had this to deal with when i got home. she is terrifically sad because i'm not feeling well enough to play. she did, however, come and take advantage of my not feeling well to lick me all over the fact (which i don't normally put up with because she tends to try to lick in your mouth and all up your nose, which is pretty yuk...)


oh! and, not pictured: the dog treats that curlie sent for diamonddog. i swear that that dogfink has a sixth sense about these things. she heard the crinkle, jumped off the lazyboy, where i *swear* she was asleep, and then whined and wiggled while i fumbled to try to get the bag open.

other than that, not much crafting went on in my life this past weekend. we didn't end up taking hte trian to quebec city because it was booked, so we drove (read: i drove because mister man doesn't drive standard, which is what i gots in my car). i did a bit on the sleeve of the apple green shrug i'm making, but that's it. at stitch n' bitch last night, i started cutting on the mountains of fabric that i'm cutting for the back of my orangepeel quilt. i've picked a navy polka dot print, and this is what i've got done so far. not much considering how much i need to get done.


more crafting action tonight and this weekend. i need to cut out another approximately million nickels for the many swaps i'm signed up for. i need to get mailing on that, i think! i just LOVE getting mail, and sending out prezzies to new people. :)
