We love presents

Now that Duetta is safely in the hands of our capable pattern testers (thank you to those of you who offered!) and while we wait patiently for them to do their respective things, we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming. Now, where were we? Ah, yes....

Is Cassie going to take up beading?

We ordered some beads and then we ordered some more beads and then!! A few sweeties who went on vacation all the way to Czechoslovakia for Christmas took the time out of their holiday to buy these for us!! So beautiful. Isn't the net cone just the prettiest way to package beads? And the little cellophane bag with the dainty wispy tie was so pretty we hardly wanted to open it. We can assure you though that we DID open it and that we spent a very happy afternoon sifting through all those beads. We sorted them out and organized all the similar ones by shape and colour. What is it about beads that makes it so pleasant to run your fingers through them?

Look at the felted purse. Oh, it's lovely, too. We can see lots of uses for it.

As well, one of the sweeties is particularly crafty and she made us these:

And they are perfect for holding our special one-of-a-kind beads. There's velcro at the top to close the bag and yet the clear vinyl lets us see exactly what's inside. Before we knew it, we had all our beads organized. And that's rare for us. Grandma Coco's not the organized type.

But that's not all!

Look what else they brought us!! Wool! Two balls of Baby Alpaca to be specific.

Can you hear them? They're whispering, "Gloves!!! We want to be gloves!"

Who are we to deny them?
