Today has been a great day.
Check this out to see picture of the kiddos in Ethiopia actually holding the yarn I sent to them in their own hands and making crafts. It just brought tears to my eyes to see them actually using it, half a world away, making crosses and loving the Lord and life in general. Thanks to the folks who shared yarn to be sent to those sweet children, I hope you are blessed by the pics like I was.
Next on my good day list is my super yarn score from Gina!! She had a little old photo caption contest and I won-woo hoo! I had good subject matter to work with-go see. I'll wait. So, I won a bag of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk-yummmmmmmmmmmmmm. Part Alpaca, part silk, ALL soft!!!!!!!! What to make, what to make.....lace shawl? throw? a few scarves? Feel free to share ideas.
Finally, it is a beautiful day outside, Spring everywhere with loads of flowers popping out and the grass is green green green! I love Spring! It hold such promise of new life and so much excitement for getting outside and shedding old icky Winter. Things really aren't quite as bleak and dead as they seem mid-January, thank goodness! We have a little extra excitement going on around here as we are still working on some Big Things so it's even better (which should be ready to be shared soon, btw). The Husband's new job is still going great, the older Things are doing great in school and the youngest Thing is just getting cuter and sweeter every day. Plus, the farmer that lives behind our house just drove by on his big blue tractor hauling a hay filled trailer of kids. Does it get any better than that? I didn't think so either :) Life is good. Hope your day is great, too!
(ps-to you knitters, MagKnits is no more!! I was really surprised b/c just the other day, literally, they had new April patterns up. Just thought I'd pass that on!)
(pps-gee, in re-reading my post I see could've retitled it "it's all about me"-how nice, so glad I could share with you my self absorption-maybe "The Post In Which My Horn Tooteth" would sound more fancy....)
