so very special !

Love and friendship
Those things make life so special.
This afternoon I came home from baby-sitting
my youngest grandson,
to hear that a package arrived.
Oh yes, we ordered a (walking) bike
for the little one who has his second birthday
this Sunday.
No, no :
another package arrived too !
I must tell you I expected a small package, or a letter,
but this was BIG !
Daughter was there too and she stayed
to see me open it
A lot of ahhhhh's and ohhhhh's
(I think you can agree with that)
My dear blogging and felting friend
(yes, the one I had this wonderful on-line felting class with)
had promesed to dye some silk for me
for my final piece for the class.
So that was something I expected,
but not this gorgeous stash,
for lots and lots of felting and knitting fun !!!
amazingly handdyed yarns
I'm over the (full) moon !
I can finally start with my final class project
and some wonderful knitting.
Uhhhhm ... about knitting
I found a pattern for the "Kauni" yarn
I bought last summer in Zwolle during the holiday.
(yes, you see :  I really love those colours Fiona picked for me !)
And a last peek in the garden
(green after allllll the rain, and now enjoying the sun again)
