Clutches and Secret Pals
My Secret Pal this go around was Jan. I was blogstalking all day yesterday and man o man is she another talented knitter. I cannot wait to read more of her blog.
Jan lives in Oregon, so she sent me gifts that related to her part of the world. "Hottie" provided the home grown alapaca yarn. Apparently Oregon is big into raising alpacas - who would have know. Also in the package ais some Oregon vanilla soap; Tazo teas (perfect since I am big into teas lately); Salt and Vinegar Kettle Chips (yummie); some cute buttons and a switchplate from local artists (the buttons are decorating the bulletin board at work - the switchplate has yet to find a home); the funniest was the "Museum of Kitschy Stitches" book. hysterical. (althought Tony liked a couple of patterns in it - questionable), and the light up needles. Now I have two sets!
Thanks Jan! It has been so much fun receiving your gifts, and I cannot wait to get to know you better! Man I love the internets sometimes.
Speaking of, I want to send a quick little shout-out (woot woot) to my girl Macoco for putting up with my email rants today... you rock sista!
My aunt really loved it. She is kinda quirky so this fit her personality perfectly. Instead of buttons, I just pinned a broach on the front, so she can interchange the look. Pretty cute -eh?
