Thanksgiving

I came home from Milwaukee to find a Thanksgiving package from my secret pal! She cross-stitched a really cute Thanksgiving-themed bookmark for me that I'm going to put to use right away. No one has ever given me a cross-stitched gift before! I've done a lot of cross-stitching over the years, so I know how much goes into it.

She also sent me a very interesting book -- Adventure Divas: Searching the Globe for Women Who Are Changing the World, by Holly Morris. It ties in with a PBS documentary series that Morris and her mother made. It's definitely on the reading list for winter break!

There were other goodies, too: 2 yummy flavored coffees, some wonderful (and SO DARK) Equal Exchange organic chocolate, and a beautiful glass oak leaf ornament. Thanks, SP!

I finished off the bunny beanie on Saturday while at a crafty gathering with some girls from my knitting group. This was such a fun project. I'm tempted to make another right away!

I'm so glad that you liked everything! I really enjoyed making the bookmark. It's the first time I've ever made something like that, so I had a time trying to think how to best finish it. I pick up fabrics here and there and this one seemed perfect for the back. I thought that book seemed really interesting as well, so I do hope you enjoy it. I'm having a great time picking out things for you and there will be another package coming your way soon! :-)
