Having a little break...

...for a wee while. Not quite sure how long the break will be but I have a lot of stuff going on over the next while so I just need to take a step back and refocus. Hopefully I won't be away for too long.

Later babes

Secret Pal 7 scores again!

I had a very pleasant surprise when I got back from offshore yesterday - yet another parcel from my Secret Pal. I think we can safely say that I scored as in the parcel was a pretty card, some marigold seeds (which grow really well in our garden), a chocolate pretzel (now eaten), a Brittany crochet hook no less (just in time for me to learn to do some more crochet), a little notebook, a Lantern Moon sheep tape measure (they are so cute) and a skein of gorgeous Jaggerspun in a rusty orange colour.

The yardage in the skein is fantastic so I can easily foresee a nice wrap or shawl, perhaps even the Ene shawl from Scarf style could be a possibility. We shall have to think about it. The colour fits in ace with the way my wardrobe colours are going. Being a wool/silk mix it is very soft. A delicate 40's style camisole could be another possibility. Pondering...

Thank you very much SP for a'thing. It's been really lovely to get little treats from across the pond. I look forward to the great reveal...

P.S. And my SP was Mary Ellen from Webster, New York. You can find her at . She's been great. Thanks Mary Ellen.
