On the snowy Saturday I was plugging away at this bag (a tutorial is on my list, by the way), my sister was hiding out in her bedroom, making me this--
I was completely shocked as I was so wrapped up in what I was doing that the rest of the world could have fallen out of existence and I wouldn't have noticed until the last stitch was in my bag. I fully intended to share, but amid the Christmas craziness I just forgot. I especially love this because my hair does not get caught up in the chain at all, which it has a habit of doing. Red and white is my favorite combination, so this suits me just down to my toes.
While I don't wear a lot of jewelry, I do wear a necklace pretty much every day. Usually something fairly simple and plain. On Christmas morning I opened a gift from
Wanna see it's cute little tummy?
We were out to dinner one night and I was holding the A-train. He points to it and says "Necklace." I said to him "Is that a bumble bee?" And he repeats that. Then he points to my dad and says "Bumble pop-pop!" and then "Bumble Leesha!" (for my sister Alicia). So it appears that having an aunt that he calls Bee has confused him a bit :)
And finally--I came home one day last week after having a...just...a week. One of those weeks that you hate. And on my sewing table was a cute little box with a note on it that said "Just a little something for teaching me to sew."
I do so very much love my tea, and this hangs at an angle to look like it's being poured. She had sent me this on Pinterest, I exclaimed how I loved it, and I ended up owning it. She shares pins all the time (and always asks if I saw them or liked them or whatever), so I didn't think for a second that she was feeling me out. And maybe she wasn't. But I do love it. So now I'm set for my grays and blacks days, and my browns and tans.
Did you ever get something that was just so perfectly you that you couldn't help grinning like a fool? What was it?
I'm hoping to have something to share with you soon that I've made. But altering pants isn't exactly photo-worthy, and my crochet project is a bit of a secret. But maybe I'll put a snippet on Instagram and you can see if you can figure it out what it's going to be. Later, taters!
