treats from my sister
if you've read this blog for awhile, you know that my sister gives the best pressies around. she continued to live up to her reputation very well, as she presented me with a bundle of goodies that she had picked up at a friend's garage sale while i was in canada. yes, that is a section of a rather large piece of perfect condition barkcloth that you see in the photo above and when she handed it to me my jaw nearly hit the floor. it's perfect, perfectly perfect and i don't know that i'll ever be able to use it because it's so perfect. it may just have to live in my stash until i'm an old, old woman and it will be even more special than it is now.
she also found the 70s gold that is "knitting nancy". how. cute. is. she?
and last, but not least, "the cute book" full of adorable and hilarious toy patterns from aranzi aronzo, which i think my sister said she picked up at urban outfitters. her favourite and most cackle-worthy of all the patterns is the utterly original "kidnapper"...
and i think i would have to agree. the copy reads:
kidnapper's job is to steal kids.
that white bag is his work bag.
kidnapper is very trim,
so stuffing with cotton
might be hard.
but neat and trim he must be.
gold. pure gold!

also just wanted to say thanks so much to everyone who has been commenting lately! i've tried to pop into everyone's blogs to say hi or send a quick note back but if i've missed you, it's only because my eyeballs are shriveled little raisins and my brain is vaguely mushy from putting in mucho design overtime this week. thanks again and keep em' coming, checking my email to read new comments is the best part of my day!
