Tons of Goodies

I must have been a very good girl this year because I got tons of goodies. Friends and family went above and beyond spoiling me for Christmas. I know enough with the chatter....get to the pictures.

I got these goodies from my friend Sam. Because she knows I have mad love for Habu Textiles.....she got me some of their Wool Stainless Steel (yes I did say stainless steel) and a kit to make a Wool Linen jacket. I got an awesome plate with my initial on it!! I currently have it sitting on my nightstand holding some stitch markers for me. I also got some much needed chocolates from the Chocolate Crisis Center. I now have my Daily Dose of chocolate raspberry truffle. MMMmmmmmmm!!! THANKS SAM!!!! XOXOXOXO!!!

I got these goodies from my friend Nachaele. I got some yummy Cascade - Baby Alpaca Chunky yarn and it is to die for. I can't even begin to explain how soft this stuff is. I just want to knit myself a bed out of this stuff and lay on it all day. Yummy!! I also got some cute stitch markers. One is a sheep and the other is an alpaca. I can't wait to use them. Then last but not least I got a little sheep soap. The scent is called Paradise. He smells really good. He is going to be displayed in my yarn room with my other sheep. THANKS NACHAELE!!! XOXOXOX!!!!

My sister Kristin took a wild chance and purchased a knitting book for me. The gods must have been smiling on her that day because it is one of the few I do not own. I had it in my hands at String a little under two months ago. Walked around the store holding it and then at the last minute I put it back. I love this book. THANKS KRISTIN!!! XOXOXOXOX!!!

My Mom got hubby and I a GPS system for the car. I can't wait to try it out. As soon as the man saw what it was he had it out of the box, hooked up to the computer downloading updates and maps, and was beside himself to try it out. It was snowing pretty heavily on Christmas and the roads were super slippery over here so that put any and all attempts at playing with the new toy on hold. He did ask me if I want to go for a drive on Saturday. I know it's not to spend time with he can try out our new toy. THANKS MOM!!!! XOXOXOXOXO

Last but certainly NOT least.......Santa dropped off some snowshoes for the man and I. Hubby already tried his out around the back yard. I need to get some snow boots before I can use mine. I went shopping for boots on line last night and saw a nice pair I wanted. They were $225.00!!!!! I almost fell off the chair. What the heck!?!? Let's just say....I am still shopping around. THANK YOU SANTA!!! XOXOXOXOX!!!

WOW, nice gifts! I just love knitting and books, so a book about knitting is like hitting the jackpot!

Santa got you some snow shoes? How cool is that! I want to hear all about how you get on with them... I've always thought it would be a lot of fun. (And we certainly have plenty of snow for it right now!)
