The good kind of spoiled!

Hi friends!

Life has been BUSY! I had some work related travel, and was able to squish in some family visit time as well. I also had a birthday, and was throughly spoiled with gifts and kindness (and home made desserts… including pie, cheesecake, and my favourite, piecheesecake – which is a bottom pie crust, fruit pie filling, a layer of sort of cheesecake [cream cheese, whipped cream, and sugar I think], all covered with chocolate. It is. Amazing.)

Other than the desserts, a lot of gorgeous presents landed on me! Show and tell? Yes!

Mug + tea!

Super sweet mug!

Tea strainers!

Charming tea strainers! (I drink SO much tea. Especially because I’ve mostly gone off coffee in the last 6 months.)

Notions case!

Amazing notions case! So sparkly and green and useful!



Leaf bookmarks!

Happy, green, leafy…

In the Jungle!

More yarn, from Waterloo Wools, in a colourway called “In the Jungle”, which is super super pretty and amazing!


Are you lucky enough to get yarny gifts for your special occasions?

  1. Happy Belated Birthday!! What a treasure trove of gifts for you. I purchased the Yarn Farming book for myself and could not put it down. Your Mum does a great job of dyeing yarn–beautiful colors.
    Generally, I just save up birthday and Christmas monies and purchase something good for myself. I’m currently awaiting the arrival of 2 lovely fleeces (already washed–Yay) and a new piece of equipment .

    • Ooh, sounds like you have some lovely things coming your way – two fleeces!! I’m glad to hear a good review of Barbara Parry’s book, I’m excited to read it. And yeah, didn’t she do a great job dyeing? Great results for her first time!

  2. Happy happy birthday! What lovely and thoughtful presents! Your Mom dyed some beautiful yarn – love the colors! You’ll love Barbara’s book – I haven’t read it yet because it had to air out and all (silky sensitivities to that glossy paper….) but I’ve been sneaking peaks through it.
