Thank you BJ - I love it all and it did indeed go to a good home!
The next little package contained these adorable sheepy pins that I ordered from Patt. Aren't they the cutest. If you want to order your own sheep pins, or stitch markers, or magnets, or even want to special order your own favorite animal (she does cute frogs and even ferrets too) go to her Etsy shop and check out what she has. Patt also has a great yahoo group called My Knitting Circle where she is currently holding a contest to name her latest creation - a very toothy dinosaur.
In the afternoon I watched the DVD movie Mama Mia, which my DS gave me for Christmas - it was the perfect feel good movie to ward off those winter blahs, and I made a lot of progress on my felted bag while I watched.
So, all in all, a pretty okay snow day!
