Clutch Cargo

Whew! What a zippy summer. Too much has happened to really recap, but let's give it a go month-by-month:

5. Joined One Skein Secret Pal KAL (May)
4. Participated in World Wide KIP Day (June)
3. Sylvia departed, Rocky and Elvis came home, (July)
2. Blew my budget at Stitches Midwest, Debi knits me socks (August)
1. My Secret Pal sends a pocket(book) full of goodies (August)

Being a Secret Pal was sort of like being a fairy god-mother. I had the opportunity to spoil someone silly once a month and that tickled me to no end. My someone was Lisa, a nurse from Rhode Island. Sweet woman with a big heart and a house full of people and pets, including the cutest floppy-eared bunny!

As I gave, so did I receive but I didn't know until this week who was behind my summer treats. My Secret Pal turned out to be a talented and very accomplished knitter from Colorado. Her name is Diane, dubbed "The Uberknitter" by her friends. Diane sent me a beautiful felted clutch with decorative little buttons:

This clutch came with surprise cargo including a busy bee tape measure, folding snips and some of Diane's own stitch markers:

Gracias, and I do mean mucho, Diane! I got a kick out of the card that accompanied the gifts as well. I rilly hope the My Three Kitties become buddies, too.

You should make that buddy pic your wallpaper and reming your boys that we CAN all get along!

Happy Labor Day!

Hi Karen! Thanks for the post-attention on the gifts! It was sure fun being your secret pal. I don't know how you got that picture of the kitties on your blog - but it still cracks me up. Here's hoping Elvis has a nice little vacation while you're recuperating, and good thoughts are with you on your surgery.
