Sorry, I've been sick but I have gotten two great supply packages!
Atsuko sent me my first spindle and roving that is SO ME!
She also sent instructions! The postman ate the little hook from the top, but I'm gonna have some fun with this! No clue what this will turn out looking like, but it's gonna be used for something for me!
And then, I got the mother of all whimsy packages from the Queen of Whimsies herself, sheepblue! (What whimsy package ISN'T pic heavy, but still, you've been warned:)
It took me a couple of days to fully go through this, but when I couldn't breathe to sleep last night, I spread it all out. FIRST, BUTTONS!
So many beautiful buttons. And then all the whimsies.
I'm going to do the rest as thumbnails to save a bit of space. But I asked for hearts for Melissa's wedding whimsy canvas, and there was an impressive (and disturbing) amount of bugs, and some really beautiful charms that are gonna become jewelry soon.
There was also a second envelope of watercolor paper, but I put it away when I got it.
So then I just have to point this out. I threw this out to sheepblue that it's a little thing between the couple, their love for giraffes. I didn't really think there'd be a giraffe whimsy out there, but LOOK! I couldn't believe it!
Also there was a penny, and a foreign coin, which I set aside for my boyfriend. Sheepblue couldn't have possibly known this, but John loves coins. So he hopped online (after attacking me with the cockroach) and found out it was a "USSR ten koneek" and then he squirreled it away with the rest of his foreign money, and continued to attack me with the cockroach.
