And she passed by my house! I'm the luckiest spinner on earth!!!
Take a look at the goodies which she left for me....
A nice big wad of cotton punis...
My girls have had so much fun with the newspaper that it's wrapped in!
A nice big wad of.... *swoon*..... cashmere.....
Two completely beautiful spindles, and three completely beautiful spindle dishes -
- one is a Swarovski cyrstal in a beautiful deep golden color, with a matching salt cellar dish,
and the other spindle has these three lovely greeny bluey browney beads, with a matching dish.
Both of them spin like dervishes - really REALLY fast, but the crystal one just zips like you wouldn't believe. I love them so much. The wooden dish was turned by my friend, and actually, I think that I like it the best.
Here is a quick little video to fuel your creative juices -
(That's a little bit of merino on the spindles - I want to get used to them before I spin the cashmere and the cotton.)
Wait, there's more!
Cute, colorful bookmarks to keep my place in my favorite spining books, and a darling little pair of knitting needles IN MY MOST FAVORITE SIZE HOW DID SHE KNOW?
A way too cute cup coaster -
check out these guys, look at their little googley eyes!
Look at the darling little thatched roofs and the stone fences!
She picked up this coaster on a recent trip to Scotland. I love it. I want to go there and see these sheep and these houses and these walls.
She also sent a magazine article which talks about a bridge project in my home town. I really appreciate this, too!
I'm such a very lucky woman to have such a good friend! Thanks, Susan!!!
