Look what I got! It's one of Cindy's hand turned wood vases. I remember seeing her make this one and was beyond thrilled when it showed up in my mailbox yesterday. What a way to brighten up another miserable winter day. I am looking forward to sticking one of my pink camellias in it or maybe an early daffodil. Thanks so much Cindy. It really is most appreciated.
I also got what appears to be the winner in the fiber contest for the red thrums. I liked the other on but I wanted something deeper and darker to make those thrums stand out This will do it nicely.
Speaking of thrums, I wound up the kit yarn the other night and tried my hand at making some of those little fiber bowties that you knit into your mitten. It's been a long time since I've done this so I had to watch a tutorial. The best one is the one by the vendor of the ill fated purple thrummed mitten kit. In case you're interested it's Zenitude on You Tube.
