This past week I totally lucked out and caught wind of new stock available from yarntini. Ever since Susan introduced me to this yarn I have been dying to get my hands on some. This stuff gets snapped up fast and now I know why. Yummy to look at and yummy to touch. Is it wrong to snuggle a skein of yarn? I bet Susan does it. I mean, look at it. It’s adorable!
Just as I was finishing up the last “Mom’s Day Special” cupcake orders to go in the mail, my yarntini package showed up. Aren’t they delicious together? Neapolitan goodness. As I send so many of my own handmade creations into the world, it’s nice to be the recipient sometimes – even if they are gifts from myself!
Steel yourself for more cuteness. These amazing woodland pins are from Pinks and Needles and they came with their own little coordinating pincushion pot.
(You might ask why I would buy myself a pincushion, since I am surrounded by them. Well, I can’t actually use one of my cupcake pincushions while I am making more cupcake pincushions. That would get mighty confusing on the ol’ sewing table wouldn’t it?)
Ahh, I sure needed these little pick-me-ups. Last week was a bugger for me, trying to stick a fork in that pesky manuscript. The bulk of it has been tamed but there are a few lingering odds and ends I hope to take care of by mid-week!
