How I do love thee!!!
I have to admit my yarn addiction is getting worse!!!
It doesn't help of course when this madam hovers near by so frequently!!!!
The title of my post today is more than apt as I have indeed recognized the emotions.....the excitement,the feverish feeling,the sweaty brow and twitching damp sticky fingers as I lunge out and grab new yarn that has just come in .....and once in my grasp I hug it to me with a stealthily gesture as if someone would steal it from me. At the same time I seem to hear the words "its mineeeee.....my precious" tingling in my mind!!!! In love with yarn!!!!
OH! JOY!!! dear peeps I just have to tell you the good news....a new yarn shop has opened up a few streets down from where I live. A KATIA yarns shop.
I saw it yesterday lunchtime and of course it was closed and I won't be able to get in to see it and contemplate the wonders until next Saturday as I have a new intensive course at Cruz Roja (Red Cross Alicante) and most shops will be closed when I get out....so it is going to be a long arduous wait....tch!!!
Here's the update on my latest swaps:
My Autumn Glory Swap hosted by Blueberry Heart is on its last leg now and my busy busy swap partner Helen from Moonstruckcreations over in the UK has been able to get her swap parcel on its way to me the end of November ....so exciting .......I should be receiving it very very soon.
My Christmas Cracker swap hosted by Tracy at Mad about Bags parcel has been received by Louise from ButtonandBabes in the UK and her swap parcel is also winging its way to me so that means another scrumptious parcel to look forward to. It is so the right time of the year to receive parcels....I do wonder if the postman doesn't just feel really abundantly loved over these christmassy weeks too.
I am sending you the following message from Kerrie from Spanish Strays. Do you remember I sent out an appeal to craft bloggers here? Well she says a big big thank you for the generous donations of craft goodies which she has received for the Spanish Strays Christmas stall. Here you have some pics of some of the goodies but there are more which you can see on the Spanish strays facebook page here.
A splendid display and generous donation from Penny at Violet White .
Their first Christmas fair was yesterday and Kerrie will also be posting photos on the SS facebook page of the stall and information on how well they did.
My W.I.P are slowly getting done but not fast enough for me when I look at this lovely new yarn that I have brought and I am dying to get my hands on!!!
I am just going to show you peeks of what I am doing at the moment.
They would , of course, get done much quicker if I concentrated on one thing at a time but I just can't as I get so easily distracted by all the Christmass crafts loveliness I keep seeing on everyones blogs.
I've posted this Sleeping with Cats chart because
it immediately brought to mind a post from Mouse on her blog A View from the teapot ,where Mouse comments about the problems caused by her cat sleeping on her pillow every night. The pillow takeover as indicated on the above chart.
It also coincides with our own problem. Now that it is quite chilly at night our cat tries to wheedle his way into Sr P's side of the bed. I see that is called the spoon on this chart. His maneuvers to wake Sr P up result from the most gentle of taps on Sr Ps head to a frightening horrendous yowl right in his ear which literally makes him jump out of the bed .....Sr P that is not the cat.
Sounds funny doesn't it but not when it is night after night!!!.
I feel there was something else I had to tell you but it has quite slipped my mind!!! It will have to keep until my next post which I hope will be in within a week and not two weeks as is the case at present.
Have a wonderful Sunday rest!!!
