Couldn’t wait and can you see me now?

Well …. I am a bit tardy in showing a photo of my SSCS gifts that came from Robyn last week. I’ve been wearing my scarf and it is tucked into my coat so I have forgotten to take a photo and post about it. You know what they say about ‘out of sight, out of mind’.

When my parcel arrived, my DH and I were just getting ready to head out for a Dr.’s appt. and it was one of those moments and the fact that my gift came from Australia …. WELL …. there was just no way that parcel was going to just sit there. My gorgeous, warm scarf went with me to the doctors and when we came home, I was able to sit down with a nice hot cup of coffee and had a wonderful time browsing through the magazines. Yep, three for three (scarf, good news at the doctors and magazines). A person could not ask for more!

Nope, I couldn’t wait and I am glad that I opened my gift. My scarf is keeping me snug and warm. Don’t you just love the pattern! :o) How in the world did Robyn know that the colours are perfect to go along with my new coat?

Robyn is now sourcing out more of that yarn for me (so far, she has 1-1/2 balls of yarn). My plan is to make a hat and possibly some mitts. In exchange, Robyn will be getting a wall hanging from me. So, thank you Robyn for my lovely gifts and Donna for once again organizing this swap!! :o)
Lately, my fabric buying has been a bunch of backing fabrics coming into my studio. After being washed and dried, they are sitting in a pile just waiting to be put away or in the case of Ashes, the perfect hideyhole. Can you see me now??
Have a great day!

That is the perfect Hideyhole! The Kanga-Roni-Bucket-'O-Cute never has been spotted in such a HH.

Ashes you are so cute and its true, we can so your little kitty nose. Just your nose though because its the perfect little nose with a very high cuteness factor.

Cutest Cat Love, *karendianne.

I'm sure glad that you are finding such joy in your furry kids! Your scarf is very pretty and will be very serviceable in the cold winter months ahead. Love those magazines, lot's of dreaming amongst those pages. :)
