~*Thankyou For The Surprises*~

I received a lovely package from my friend Grace for my birthday there were 3 skeins of super soft Adagio each skein is 70% baby llama and 30% silk 50 grams each I would love pattern ideas for the skeins.

There was a breast cancer awareness pin to wear as October is breast cancer awareness month.

There was a little knitting book to carry in my knitting bag full of cool knitting facts and a place to write my needles down and a Mary Engelbreit Christmas journal.
There were a set of pretty cards with 2 birds kissing so sweet,a pretty accessories wallet,and a knitting needle bracelet purple a favorite I will wear it often:)A key charm which makes me think of Coraline and the secret door.

There was an awesome heart tape measure love it she also sent the girls some treats which they loved and pencils for Alora to use for doing her homework and she loves to draw as well.Thank you Grace

Also for my birthday my friend Leslie gave me the necklace I'm wearing in the photo it is a bubbled heart with Celtic circles cable needle necklace I love it.

I received a trip to NY from my hubby for my birthday and he let me buy yarn and get a bracelet on the trip will blog soon about that.

I haven't been blogging much lately as I have been dealing with severe allergies so I will try to update more often as the allergies let up it is still warm where we live and windy so my allergies have been really bad causing migraines and feelings of exhaustion and over all aches and pains .
