I receive a fabulous package from KitKabbit today. Girl, how did you get all of that in that little skinny box???


This is my huge pile of fabric scraps for my felt thimbles! You can't see it well, but there are so many gorgeous pieces. Even some silks and in the most lovely colors. I hope I can bear to give them away when the time comes! (But of course, there is enough here to make some copies for little ole me!). With the fabric is the cutest pink PAISLEY journal (Kitkabbit glittered and silvered up the front, which doesn't show in the pics). It is the perfect size to go in my knitting bag, so it has been designated as my new knitting journal! (perfect because my old one is nearly done!)Here is the inside..the pages look like toile fabric!! Oh and the journal was wrapped up with a ribbon which was threaded through a teeny tiny little flip-flop that you can see at the bottom of the pic lol. Its my fave color combo pink & green lol!



Here are my very much loved paper parasols.. closed up


Here's the larger one opened...


and the smaller one...couldn't see the design closed, but open it up and WOW!

 
They will really warm up my very cool colored craft room! I have wanted some of these beautys my whole life and never found any "real" ones... just the ones that looked like they should be in a mai-tai lol...these are exactly perfect. My heartfelt thank you KitKabbit, you are such a sweetie! It will take at least 2 weeks to get this goofy grin off my face!!

That is a great package, Lylyfai!  I love the paper umbrellas!

On a different note, there is ONE WEEK LEFT to post a birthday wish list for November.

yay!

misty, I'm sooo glad you liked everything!!!
whee!

um.  i'm just glad someone else likes umbrellas just as much as I do!
... at one point i probably had about 16 of those things...  lol! I told the mystery author, Elizabeth Peters, at an author signing that I loved her main protagonist, Amelia Peabody, because she considered her umbrella like MacGyver's swiss army knife, indispensable!!!  yeah i have an umbrella fetish.  and a lantern fetish... and a stuffy animal fetish.. some people are just born to be collectors, I guess!

one of my good friends had a japanese umbrella hung from the ceiling in an previous apartment and used it like a light fixture/chandelier.  If you don't have space to have it displayed or are worried about damage, think about hanging it from the ceiling!!  And if it's upside down, it'll keep the luck in!

I refurbished a journal with that cute paper!  I'm so glad you like it.  I was going to send this other journal but couldn't find it in my craftroom mess, so had to run out and get one to decorate!  I saw you liked paisley and pink and green.  I don't think it's TOO preppy!  Now argyle, on the other hand... 

Please don't forget to post your finished thimbles for us when you get them done, I'm dying to see what they look like!  I gave you every teeny scrap i could find, if it was pretty =)  since i'm a packrat i don't throw much away.. drives the DH nuts.  But what he doesn't know doesn't hurt him, lol!!!  especially if it's in a drawer or plastic baggie hidden from sight!

Can't wait to see the other bday goodies!!!!

OK I am fessing up now to say the whole reason I posted a list was that so maybe, just maybe some beautiful soul would knit me some fetching gloves....I am so excited, Miss. Mermaid made me the PERFECT pair, they are lovely and soft and warm and I just <3 them!! The color is just beyond perfect....
Let me apologize for the pics though, it is VERY hard to take pictures of your own hands  Roll Eyes



and at my messy desk....


THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
