My SSCS parcel!


I felt so spoilt when I opened my gift from Anita at http://anitas-bedofroses.blogspot.com/ on Christmas Eve. So as not to tempt myself I hadn't even gone into the box until then. I got this great thread catcher / pincushion. It is in the cutest chicken fabric. I have looked at these on other blogs and it is something I wanted but would not of attempted myself. I also got some dishcloths, another thing I haven't tried but am very excited to own!! Anita also put in some fruit and nut candies, will be a lovely change from the 'chocolate'!! There was also 2 magazines which are already looking very well loved. They are very different from what we have here and one in particular is full of quilts I would like to try. Thank you again Anita, it was a very special present. I will post some photos of what I made for my swap partner tomorrow, I think this parcel deserves a post all of its own!
There has been some knitting again today, seemed the easiest thing to pick up. I did though choose fabric and patterns for 2 quilts which I want to get going on. One will be for my nieces 18th birthday and the other for my friend who is expecting her 2nd baby soon.
I am so thankful for the special people I have met and friendships I have made in this blogging world . I am today praying for John Travolta and his family as they try to cope with the death of his son.

I'm really glad you liked your gift. The dish cloths are very simple to make. I cast on 27 stitches and knit every row until I have 46 to 48 rows then I cast off, single crochet around and then double crochet. I wanted something that fit my hand without being to large. The applets and cotlets are a Washington state product and I've really enjoyed them, but not often.

Great stuff!! I love the thread catcher/pin cushion. I have a pattern for one and think I may work on it today now that I've seen how cute they are. :)

Hello everyone! Who knows where to upload the film Avatar?
I even bought the film Avatar for a SMS to http://rsskino.ru/kinofilm/avatar.html , the link was, but download fails, the system will boot quite strange cocoa something.
Men, advise where to normal as quickly download film avatar?
