Today I got my package from my exchange partner and here you can see what I got. A lovely fall shawl. Aren't the colors just gorgeous? I absolutely LOVE it! And I dont have a shawl so it will certainly come in handy on chilly nights. And I got a hazelnut coffee scented candle....mmmm...smells wonderful :) And a skein of Bernat yarn....its soft and fuzzy and I will have to make something special with it. Thank you SO much, partner! As usual, I had a LOT of fun with the exchange.
I saw this quote in my e-mail from Stephanie Pearl-Mc Phee a/k/a 'The Yarn Harlot'.
" I am not wasting time knitting or wasting money buying yarn. I am creating useful and beautiful objects that will outlast me and my days. I am creating a legacy to outlive me."
This is how I feel about crocheting. I bet YOU feel the same :)

Been working hard on my Fall Exchange with CFL....and I finally finished this little fellow a little while ago. For only having a small online image and no pattern to go by, I think "Sam"came out pretty well......thats what I call him. I think he kinda LOOKS like a Sam :) I hope my partner likes him. I have attempted to write down the pattern...you can find it on my pattern page.
I started working on another piece to give, as well, but I wasnt that happy with it, which is why I made "Sam"....but if I have the time to finish the other thing, I will send it along too.
