Hello! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I'm still on the mend so it was pretty uneventful for me. The highlight around here came yesterday when the postman delivered a package to Destiny. And not just any package, it said ROYAL MAIL! Maybe thats how all mail from the UK comes ....hmmm could be..either way, we got a kick out of it....don't take much to amuse us huh :)
Well, in this "royal" package came 3 scrumptious skeins of yarn...that little picture at the top does them no justice! So this is what you guys are always referring to as DK yarn?? Double knit....who knew! Not me! Two shades of blue...Turquoise and Aster, and the delightful pink skein is called Fondant! The wonderful Ms.Amanda (http://www.mandas-challenges.blogspot.com/) loved the idea that Destiny is learning to crochet so she bought her some yarn for encouragement. Now isn't that just the sweetest thing...She really is a doll! Destiny says thank you and sends big xoxoxoxo your way! She's actually sending a little something more then that your way but you'll have to wait and see :)

My hand isn't hurting as much as it once was so I did get to hook a little bit this weekend....nothing big. A few dish clothes, a towel hanger, and some butterflies...I'm addicted to making butterfly fridgies! This is just a few of what I did over the weekend. Not pictured are the handfuls that I made and gave to my mom, my mother in law and my sisters...

It's nice to finally be able to crochet SOMETHING.....stitches should come out tomorrow. Hopefully  I will be as good as new..we shall see..Take care! xoxoxoxo


  1. OOH Butterflies!!!! Gorgeous.
    Amanda is so sweet isn't she?
    Im sure the yarn will be so...useful!
    I'm pleased you are gong on okay, takes time. Thanks for your comments Nicole, you've been quiet these few days.
    Love Suex

  2. Those colors are so pretty! I'm impressed your daughter is learning. I tried a bit with my girl, but she got frustrated so easily. I'll try again a little later.

  3. Thank you Ms. Sue..never stay quiet for too long! :)
