We've decided to knit hats for Save the Children. So next time we meet, I'm trading in the tapestry needle for a pair with no eyes.
In the meantime, feast your eyes here. These are the photos I promised of the gifts that arrived last week. Sorry, blogger is flipping my photos. These are both sideways. But this is why god made your neck a pivot joint.
Two(!) of Jennifer's beautiful hand dyed threads. The orange is called "Autumn Leaves" and the brown is called "Apple Cider." I've got the perfect plan for these.
This is the birthday gift from Barbara. I love it all, but that reform school girl card rocks. And I've got an idea for that "Don't Bug Me" pattern.
So people keep sending things and giving me big ideas. Thanks a lot, folks, like I don't get big ideas on my own! I should write these things down before I start forgetting...
Thanks, Barbara and Jennifer. You make me believe in the inherent goodness of stitchers.
