What was in the Dora Package? And More!

First up check this out Fiber Trends Lace Moebius Scarf Pattern. I've tried to get this pattern for a while and she found it for me! YEAH! She's an awesome Mil isn't she

and some KSH color #596 to make one or possibly two of them. Its like a rust burnt orange type color, very nice warm autumn color, its such a pretty shade. I don't' think the picture does it any justice at all...

wait there's more too!

not only that she also included not one but two skeins of CTH supersock yarns in Fall Foliage & Country Garden colorways! Yes socks for me!! She gets tired of seeing me in dark colors she always tells me....Great choices I love them!

then my present to myself showed up yesterday too.
my wools grab bag from CTH on sale for $30 I couldn't resist for that price and loved not knowing until it arrived and on my birthday even better. A GREAT surprise
which included
1 skein of Twister in blues/purples

1 skein of Potluck worsted in blues/greens

1 skein Superwash Possum worsted in bluestone

and 2 skeins Superwash Possum worsted in teal

they also included a free pattern for Grab Bag Vest Design by CTH by Donna Durchunas

then my loving 18 year old being such a wise guy gave me a $20 gift card for Dunkin Donuts, she knows I love their coffee....(she asked me what I wanted, I told her nothing but for her to be happy so this was a total surprise)

In case your wondering NO I'M NOT 40 y/o NOT yet! She was being a wise guy and this was her way of pay back because I'm always saying I'm 29 again... That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Teenagers they always think your over the hill and don't understand anything, but I'm a fairly young mother of grown teens I think...I guess she'll just always think of me as old

Then DH thought these candles were neat. He found them at a fair in Ohio last month while he was there. He thought it was neat to stand in the middle of a ton of honey bees while this man poured beeswax candles I guess. so he picked these up for me.... (shhh I'm also a soap maker and have several pounds of beeswax and molds)....

then my cousins surprised me with a very heavy package~this set of dishes....Yep more lighthouses!

then this was delivered to my door too no return address just my own from who?? Delivered by DHL I think there called.. Anyone want to fess up?? Thank you!

I think I must've had a delivery from every delivery truck around!
and a box of tea with Chinese food for dinner! Nice tea, actually just brewed a cup and tastes just like in the restaurant!! Yum!!

and my younger kids gave me Tweety to hang in my car.

so sweet, I like to watch Tweety & Taz with them and they always leave stuffed tweetys in the back window of the car and they always seem to get them from carnivals, fairs, festivals, etc. You know the ones.

Still waiting patiently for another suprise package of goodies but the other night I went out shopping and picked up some clothes, jeans & some cotton type long sleeve shirts and one sweather, a turtle neck I've been so cold lately it's been between 60s-70s. Next week suppose to be up into the 80s again.. Crazy! Only New England weather from one extreme to another....

Great gifts!

I got the same colorway of the Potluck and am making Fuzzy Feet with it now - lemme tell ya - the dye is not fixed on this stuff. Both of my hands turn green and blue after working with it for only a short time. Be warned!

I'm making Anastasia out of some CTH Country Garden right now and it's gorgeous! And so, so soft. You'll love working with it!

Happy (belated) birthday! I missed it the other day. You are young for having a daughter out of high school. I will be 43 when my son graduates (but since he is just in kindergarten, that is a LONG way off!) Lucky you with all that new yarn!
