I love my mailman!

The mailman was so nice to me today!  He brought me a package that I bought from a friend in DC who does auctions for a living.  She found a couple of great finds and I bought them rather than making her go to the hassle of putting them on Ebay.

The item inside the bubble wrap is a surprise for a friend!

I also got a package from a crochet I did on Ravelry.  My partner made me a beautiful carrier for my Literati.  She also included a gorgeous skein of yarn, a notepad, buttons, cross stitch kit and a package of labels to sew on my crocheted items.

I've been crocheting up a storm and have done a number of Halloween items that are for an exchange and also for sale in my Etsy shop.  I finished this tissue box cover last night & made a 2nd one for Mariah.  She loves the spiders!

Well, back to my math and stitching on an ornament!  And how was YOUR day?


  1. My day was spent doing homework, too. I had a few finishes -- you'll have to wait for my MM update for those ;-)

    What a cool auction find! Nice exchange. What's a Literati?

    Good luck with homework.

    (I won't tell Rich about you and the mailman. LOL)

  2. A Literati is a Sony ereader. Like a Kindle or a Nook. I got a really good deal on one a few months ago - $49 for what is normally $299! And thanks for not telling Rich! :)

  3. What a nice find! I love those neat buttons and I had never seen crochet labels, nice exchange. I also have been crocheting up a storm. for me it has been baby blankets.
