Oh, woot indeed! I'm having what can be called the cr*ppiest week (month? season?) ever, and my silver lining came yesterday in the form of a package from inle_rah.
My goodness. It is just so freakin' awesome!
First of all, a batik handbag in colors that just lift my spirits so much, and koolaid for my nasty little dyeing habit:
And another lovely handknit bag, made from silknoil, with a batik lining, and as a bonus, York's peppermint patties, which are probably on the top ten list of things I miss about the US.
And last but most certainly not least, the most beautiful skein yarn I have ever laid eyes upon (posing with a bottle of Eucalan, which may well become another regular item on the list of things my dad will have to bring on his visits):
Of course I had to take it from both sides:
It is so soft and beautiful. When my husband suggested I make something for one of the kids I said that this one is for me me me. Not sharing. No way.
Thank you so very much for spoiling me absolutely rotten. It couldn't have come at a better time!
