Bar Maid's off, all but one which has more work to be done on it and it too will be a thing of the past.
All of those skeins of yarn that were hanging in one the photo above... and on the left, right and behind the photographer... and the second row of skeins behind the first row... all went into these parcels.
I'm pretty proud of that one on the top, left stack see the one near to bursting? There are not one, not two but THREE sets of EIGHT skeins in there! Yes I taped that puppy up good. The photo looks weird as I muddied up all the addresses cause I'm paranoid that way and it's all about my peeps after all. If I don't protect you, who will?
One of these days I'm going to take a photo of it LOADED down. So you can see why "this" is such a big deal as it looks like this for all of half a day out of months and months. Just to prove to myself that the decks (and desks) can be cleared.
Campwannaknita photos of a recent camp in which the Yarn Fairy was fortunate enough to be participate in,,, sort of. See we were in the Swag bags which means everybody got a small abacus and Angelique went as well. She was fought over but in the end, her "Intended" was much in love. They look like they had a blast and I am privileged to have participated in my small way.
For those of you who have been following the silk robe journey, the decision was made and it has arrived. YIPPEEKAYYAHYEAH! I adore it! This robe was made from silk sari's which have been recycled into my Technicolor Dream Coat if you will... or Coat of Many Colors depending on which side of the tracks you lay. WOW I just washed it as my kitties were showing FAR too much interest. Gave it a good spray down in my Jasmine EO "perfume" and hung it up to dry. While extending the silk I realized that this puppy is fully lined and the inside really rivals the outside for my affections. Ally, hot pink! and turquoise! LOVE IT! Perfect for this unseasonably hot winter we are having. In the last few weeks there have been several days where I have not felt well enough to change out of my PJ's so this robe is just what the doctor ordered for this InValid. BTW, I do not recommend it for anyone larger then say, size XL.
Because Snargles happen!
Today's mail also netted us another 25 medium flat rate boxes as the first order came in as EMS boxes. Yeah, somebody, somewhere along the line made a mistake. So on Tuesday I had DH hitting several PO's to get the boxes we needed to ship in time for the KAL to begin on 2-19 as needed. This will bring this years KAL's back to the beginning of the month by June. Yes, we have a list that extends that far now. When I can clear the decks enough to turn around I plan on giving you a list via our Yahoo Group files section.
Another lovely I have for you is Wolfie but I'm getting way ahead of myself. See I found this lovely yarn that looked just like FUR! Purchased, dyed a skein of worsted to match and paired them up in a cowl that's to dye for! I can not wait to share but I will need a TKer. Wmdress at sbcglobal dot net.
Sherlock - "Did you miss me?"
Can I just say! OH YES!Mum calls all large mail days Christmas, for me, most of them are all about work so she's kinda learned the hard way that it's not Christmas when it's a large mail day. But Mum, today IS indeed Christmas as I got in a large and unexpected box today. Would you like to open it with me? It's from my BFF which can mean a number of things these days... lets just say from someone I ADORE and leave it at that, shawl we (PIN-such a NERD!).

Ok now I am crying!! I caught my wee dog doing "his thing" I didn't think I'd be able to as it's very infrequent now as he's getting closer to the end of his days. He sleeps more and isn't as frisky.
