Getting the mail and collecting eggs are two of my favorite things to do each day. It's almost like Christmas morning every day when I get home from work. Maybe it's not that big of a deal to most people, but I love wondering what I'll get! Usually the mail isn't too exciting, but sometimes I get surprises! Ok, well most of the time any "surprises" I get are things I've actually ordered, but still...
Yesterday I got three packages!! Three! And I got three catalogs AND a magazine! Jackpot!
Wool roving I ordered from ebay. I actually have my first real commissioned felting job! My friend Jenny asked me to make two felted dogs for her sister's wedding! I'll be making a black lab and a white/blonde lab. I'm really excited about it, and nervous as heck. Hopefully I'll have time to get started soon, because the wedding is November 14th!
I got natural, olive, black, and eggplant roving. The olive and eggplant is just for my stash. I won't be using those for the dogs.
I also ordered some buttons from Buttons Galore. My button stash has been depleted lately with different projects, and I needed more. I ordered two bags. The one on the left is the Citrus Splash grab bag, and the one on the right is the Mixed Color grab bag. I'm just a teensy bit disappointed in the mixed color one, because the buttons look different from the picture on the website. The buttons I got are a little too big and comical (does that make sense) for what I wanted. But, I'm sure I'll find a use for them.
They are pretty though.
My third package was from my friend, Jenny. She sent me some pills for Scooter (did I mention she's a veterinarian?). Pain meds for his arthritis, and a joint supplement! Awesome and totally unexpected!
I'm bummed today because it's raining. We were supposed to go to an Amish auction (to benefit their school), apple picking at an orchard, and an Amish supply store so I can get some bulk baking things. We'll see how it goes.
