As we say in The Netherlands: sometimes you have to tickle yourself. And as it is my birthday that is exactly what I did. And I sure laughed and smiled when this box arrived.
I ordered got the most luscious yarn for a birthday present, like Drops Lima and Nepal, and some lovely Drops Cotton Merino. In the most divine and stunning colours.

I already know what to make with this precious gift: A couple of new blankets with the Stylecraft yarn, some cushion covers with the Lima and Nepal, hot water bottle covers (I really do have nice design in my head for this), a wreath or two with the merino … Ooww, how lovely and soft that merino is. It’s the first time I bought got a few balls as I never could afford it, but now I know what I have missed all that time. This is yummy scrummy yarn. And the colours, look at the colours: lavender and beige, and denim and ice blue. Beautiful shades. I already made a nice flower with it, for one of my wreaths. That wreath I’ll make with other yarn I have, also cotton but not so soft as the merino, in soft and light, earthy tones.

Well, I am off now, must eat some cake and cuddle my yarn. Ta ra! xxSneeuw op verjaardag 2012Sneeuw verjaardag 2012PS: Theses  pics I took on my birthday back in 2012.
