~ Lovely goodies and an award ~

Hello all, how are you doing? I hope you all had a great weekend and your new week ahead will be a beautiful one!

It's been over a week since my last post, sorry for the silence, work has been quite busy lately! Thank you so much for all your kind comments, your messages, your words of encouragement really made my day!

Well, not much for today post, I just would want to share with you some lovely goodies I bought from a lovely lady on Ravelry last week. She has some beautiful yarn for sale there, I checked out her stash and picked these beauties out:

Two balls of Vanna's Choice Baby, Aqua, one is wound into smaller balls.

Caron Simply Soft in Country dark blue. I see some bloggy friends using this type of yarn very often for their projects and I would want to try also, but it's not available at my local craft store here, so I took all three balls and love it!!

Caron Simply Soft Paints, also very soft and has a lovely variegated colors - Oceana.

Naturally Caron Country, in my favorite color... Soon I will find something beautiful to make with this lovely yarn!

And these Paton's Brilliant in lilac are just so soft and beautiful. This type of yarn has been discontinued, there were only 6 balls left in her stash so I took all. I've been thinking of knitting a top with these, and I'm still looking for a pattern to try!

I've never used any kind of glitter yarn so far, but it looks just cute so I took 2 balls, this can be something fun for my baby projects... ;)

The package arrived quite fast and here is all the yarns I have bought from her:

Look at the picture below, except a set of DPNs size 3 I also bought in the same order, all the rest are included in my package for free! Knitting needles - used and new, 11 pairs in total and a pair of Takumi circular needles together with some stitch holders - she offered them all for free as I was buying her yarns!

Other than that, below is some lovely stuff she included, a small ball of Simply Soft paints in rose garden and some bows, flowers,.. she made for embellishment and gifted to me as well. How nice!

But the best part is this pair of barefoot sandals - also a gift from her! I'm going to have a vacation and these will be something very cute with me on the beach, and very sexy, too! Thank you Denise, for such cute stuff on our first deal! I love them all!

And, one more thing to share is, I have received this "Liebster Award" from Miss Beena Stephy over at Beena's Creations. Thank you very much, my friend, for thinking of me and has passed this award on to me, I'm so honored!

I just googled the word "Liebster" and so fun to know it's German and means "Dearest", or "Beloved"! Go check out Beena's "Dearest" blog, her embroidery is amazing!!!

Thank you everyone for stopping by, wishing your days are all gorgeous!

Take care and best wishes ~

Wow, what a nice surprise. I have never seen the Naturally Caron Country yarn...really loving the color and the Glitter Knitting yarn looks really hard to work with..I might get that all tangled up in knots ") Can't wait to see what you come with all your new yarn!
