...after dropping off the face thereof.
This was the scene at Chez Romi all last week. Here's a half day's worth of packages.
Mr. Romi would take some to the post office in the early afternoon on the way to taking the boys to swim practice, and then I would take another load at the end of the day. I spent a lot of quality time at the PO! :) The kids and I were all working to get my club packages out, and when they were gone? None of us quite knew what to do with ourselves! I'll show you all a picture of what's inside when I think everyone has gotten theirs and/or seen the spoiler pics in my Ravelry group. I had a great time with the pattern for this one; the particular theme has been on my mind for a few years now, and I'm so excited to have finally done it! It's a wonderfully relaxing knit, and I so enjoyed taking it along with me for travel knitting. Well. You'll see very soon. :)
Today I decided I needed a treat. I was feeling kind of tired and a little low spirited, so I raided my jewelry materials stash for a quick pick-me-up project. Nothing like a little new bling to make me smile!
I had a couple of pearls that I thought were very cool; I love the blobby texture on them. And to go with them, I pulled out some copper findings and a length of copper chain with great links.
The tools came out next.
And I went to work.
Copper is so easy to bend.
It was a fun treat after all the (very hard) nickel I've been hammering lately!
I detached a couple of links from the chain.
And 15 minutes later, I had a new pair of earrings!
I lurve instant gratification. :)
And tomorrow? You shall see the yarnz I picked up at TNNA. I can't wait to show you!!!
