Wonderful, wonderful mail lately.
So very generous, well chosen, beautifully made and given from the heart - I am so lucky. We are, because my little girl got some great things, too.
Thank you Cassie, Cecile and Mirjam!!!
Then there was absolutely delicious fiber (a lot of!) from Cassie, who also indulged me by knitting this cozy scarf... it is soft like heaven. Cashmere from Posh Yarn *sigh*
The pattern is Stitch Marker's Cream of Spinach, really pretty. And although it's almost May, it is just the right thing to wear these days, rather awful spring weather here around this year.
I can't possibly show all yarny gorgeousness here, suffice to say I truly am in yarn heaven now and would love to start a bunch of new project. Which would be the reason why I, in the midst of two patchwork endeavours, picked some yarn from my stash and decided it was time to finally try toe up socks... to tame the urges.
Cassie also sent us Tasha Tudor's The Springs of Joy. Dagny is so delighted by the enchanting illustrations - and I pretty busy explaining the quotes. This book is such a moving and heartwarming treasure.
Here a little bit of yarn...
And then Mirjam from the Netherlands, who had been a winner in my two years blog's birthday drawing some time back, pleased us immensely by bestowing us with a load of fabulous gifts of all sorts (again, here are only a few of the gifts shown). Crafty (new bag for my girl!), cute, vintage-y, delicious, fun... including a Kleintjes Strooibaar from De Ruijter and soap bubbles (non Japanese style, therefore even more exciting) ... and something else soapy, too... :)
A girl and its new bag...
Cassie, Cecile and Mirjam, you are just too sweet.
