the good thing about my weirder than usual schedule this semester is if i can't do something before friday i usually can ON friday. now... pics of my rainbow happies from Yelutci!!
first off, small things in the box. which is decorated on the inside with verse quotes - so nice!
so we have bookmarks, notice the detail-ness below!
the card explains that she decided my theme should be the Noah's Ark account with the rainbow, for destruction and renewal and God's care during that (i am not saying this as well as it was said). which is a great idea to be reminded of, especially in these precarious moments of modern life.
so we have rainbow coasters and rainbow bookmark
--> note, my 2 favorite yarns/threads ever. i buy these even though i don't know how to make anything out of them, just because of their colorfulness.
also angel accents that my MIL will totally love (just about to make her package to send to South America, so that's handy!)
also cat buttons in a style that looks like blue and white china, that i will find a way to turn into jewellery
also another (turquoise!!) bookmark in a cross. dh might get that one cos all the rainbowness is scaring him.
then we have the scarf of many colors which is to remind that Joseph's life also had that whole destruction and restoration thing going on.
it is modeled rather clashingly by the spare chairbed in the livingroom... which makes it look like an awareness ribbon for rainbows addiction syndrome (which i have, anyway
) but really i was just trying to show you guys the clever shape/construction of it.
are you guys noticing the great theme-keeping and
all the great crocheting going on here?!
but there is more!
a magazine that i am sure i will find some cool things to make in, and a great washcloth that was in the theme of "cleanliness is next to Godliness"... which is really funny cos ... well, the reason i didn't make an action shot is, i was kinda scroungy today.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! what a lot of work and great ideas went into this ~ i love it all!!
