Beads for Birthdays
Before knitting took over my brain I used to lurk over at a Delphi forum called All About Beads. The folks there did incredible work and I was in so in awe that I rarely said anything. But I liked to participate in bead swaps and ATC swaps. The last two years I have signed up for a thing called Beads for Birthdays...a secret pal thingy. Well, I haven't been there hardly at all in a long time and had really forgotten that I'd signed up (my pal was in January so my part was over about the time it began for this year LOL). Until a box of goodies arrived yesterday. Look at all the loot. Did I score or what? I have no idea who my pal was since the tricker put MY return address on the box and the postage sticker was smeared. She shall remain a secret I guess.
In other exciting news from the homefront, it appears that my Christmas cactus will be blooming at Christmas! I've had this thing for years, and except for the Christmas I bought it, I believe this is the first time it's bloomed at the right time. AND, I lack the toes on the second Christmas gift housesock. Well, I haven't kitchenered the first one yet. Saving the joy, ya know! *G*
