I was running a little late when I got home this evening - David greeted me at the door with, "You got a package in the mail today." I found it on the bed when I went in to change clothes. OH, BOY - IT'S FROM DIANE!!!
I eagerly opened the packet and spilled the contents onto the bed. WOW - a ball of Lizbeth (my favorite thread!) in size 20 (my favorite size!), in a colorway I didn't already have (!!!)! Two - count 'em - TWO of the new Starlit shuttles, all dressed up for Christmas!! And to carry everything - one of Diane's handmade origami pouches in a Christmassy print!!!
It's been a hard couple of weeks at work and we're not out of the woods yet - got to get through the End-of-the-Year tasks first. And before Year End - we have Christmas (let's see, ham is in the freezer...) and I'm NOT ready yet!!!
But if anything can put me in a Christmassy mood, it's Diane's wonderful gift! I think I'll go hunt up the "Charlie Brown Christmas" DVD, make a hot cuppa, and settle in for some Christmas TATTING!!!
