Oh me oh my,... lookie what Mr. Postman left on my porch yesterday!
My orders from Stitches West!!
First, my most lovely Offhand Designs bag:
It's a Zelda Grand in a new crewelwork fabric not yet posted on their website. It's hard to tell from this pic, but there are little rhinestone jewel accents here and there adorning the fleurs, which are Very Happy, and Very Fabulous.
A little less glamorous but solidly excellent nonetheless, a paper / mohair cardigan kit from Habu Textiles:
It's hard for me to believe that these three little cones of yarn, which are carried together when knitting, are going to make an entire cardigan, but we'll see,...
I'm still sick and feeling crappy, but today I'm off to SF in a few hours for a couple of wedding dress appointments (Ginger's and Amy Kuschel's), and to get some dinner with a girlfriend. These are the last two appointments I have scheduled, so hopefully will be able to make a decision soon.
And can someone please tell me why, WHY it is so difficult to find a normal, non-cheese factor DJ for a wedding?? I mean, the guy I spoke to yesterday was talking about inflatable "party toys" (what??) and playing sound bites (i.e. the theme to Jaws and Mission Impossible) during the cake cutting. Oh good lord,... I know I'm from po-dunk hicksville, but COME ON.
