Lucky Me!

The other day, after all the snow stopped and the mail person finally made it up our hill, I got a wonderful package from Sue B , who was my partner in the Dragon Swap hosted by Kathy B. Not only did she find some lovely Sleeping Dragon yarn, she included not one but three dragon-themed patterns. (Now I have to decide which one to do first......) She somehow figured out that I like cats and mysteries and found a new-to-me mystery writer. (Gotta be good and finish my bookclub book first though before delving in.) And there was a very tasty dark chocolate bar plus some wonderful smelling soap. Thank you so much, Sue! (And thank you, Kathy, for hosting a very fun swap.)

Meanwhile, after practicing the Cretan stitch, I found a place for it on my SBS block, her shoes! With a bit more stitching, I finished up block #1 and am all ready to move on to the next one. 1 down, 11 to go!

We spent a lovely afternoon, playing with Max....even took a walk in the chilly sunshine!
