Goodies Galore 2!
Next to show is a box of goodies from Ridgewoman in New Mexico.
A while ago I won a give-away on her blog for guessing the origin of the name of the gorgeous pussy, Pippa who is the star of her blog heading.
The box itself is a gift....
.....before the excitement of wondering what it contained....
I couldn't even remember what the prize was...but I think it was some HDT and a shuttle.
That HDT sure looks nice.
It is Yarnplayer's Sugar Maple dyed on Cotton Floss, that's a new experience for me.
There was also Yarnplayer's Forest in size 50. One of the very first colours that I got from her to tat geckos. That's a while ago!
OK I will open the box and show you the contents...
....drool over all those goodies...I did!
The shuttle is one of the new Boyle plastic post shuttles with a pick....going into my collection (and to use sometimes for pleasure of course).
Two lots of ribbon, great for mounting tatting on to make bookmarks.
3 eazy bobs...is that how it's spelt..it doesn't have the name on the bobbin....another new novelty to try.
2 lengths of very unusual beads...for jewellery and a bag with more beads in..little hearts and some findings.....a ball of Valdani dark green floss...will go with the Sugar Maple.
Oh and a ball of Lizbeth 40 in lemon yellow....that's already been used for one of my latest projects.
Almost at the end.....for Feargal there was a Serape for cold nights round the camp fire. Donnacha gave this up without much of a fight!
Tadgh says wherever you are Feargal...eat you heart out 'cos he saw it first!
Did you see the gorgeous tatting at the front, a snowflake and a medallion for the Serape...how how we loves to get our hands on someone elses tatting.
Oh so pretty.
Finally there sitting on top of the box on the Serape is the cutest little bear.
It's turquoise from a mine in Arizona and is a fetish 'mmm maybe with mystical qualities' common in Indian decoration. Can't read where from it looks like S.W.Arnes but couldn't find that on Google.
She said that she had fun stuffing the box and she sure did stuff a lot in there..it was like Christmas again.
Thank you so much.
