A few weeks ago I won a contest, one done by the lovely Mme. Fox. She had a wonderful English Aero shuttle which she gave away by random drawing - and I lucked out as the winner!
And here is the shuttle - if you look carefully, you can see that it says AERO on top and ENGLAND below. It's very nice. I didn't have an Aero shuttle before. I know many folks swear by them, so I'll have to try it out.
But that's not all the postman brought me. (I typed brang. Really. Oops.) Because I received a lovely package, the contents of which were all wrapped up and tied with a blue bow. And when I unwrapped everything, I was astounded.
Do you see why?
Sweet Fox has sent me a multitude, an abundance, a plethora of goodies, far more than I deserve. In addition to the Aero shuttle, this is what I got:
- A Canadian key chain in the shape of a key, with hearts and a maple leaf on it. (Moe started singing "O Canada" when he saw it.)
- Two vials loaded with beads. These beads are begging to be made immediately into Jane Eberol's Winsome Drop earrings.
- 5 plastics rings to be tatted over - earrings and a pendant, perhaps?
- Six, count 'em, SIX thread samples of variegated Lizbeth thread in size 20. And not piddling amounts of any of them. Probably at least 20 yards of each.
- A lovely embroidered burgundy bag to put goodies in, or to use as a gift bag.
- And, last but certainly not least, some of Fox's exquisite tatting. A gorgeous round motive, and a beaded heart one. Ms. Fox. you do very fine work.
Aren't I a lucky lady? Thank you, thank you, thank you to my dear Fox!
Moe told me a terrible joke, which I'll share.
A kid was dressed as a pirate on Halloween, with sword, hat, fake parrot, the works. So he went to a house for Halloween goodies.
"Ahoy matie!" said the homeowner. "Great costume! And where are your buccaneers?"
"Under my buckin' hat!" replied the kid.
