Christmas & Birthday Presents

This is one of several posts that has been running around my head since Christmastime. Here are pictures of the the craft-related things I received for Christmas and my birthday.

This gorgeous yarn was a gift from my employer. She also gave me some Aida cloth and a stamped cross stitch for my birthday. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay. I will be making Julia's Shawl from the book Wrapped in Comfort.

My Mom gave me these pretty scissors, and she made the scissor fobs. Thanks Mom!
This thimble is from my Grandparents. They bought it on their trip to Hawaii for my thimble collection.

I was hoping for some wooden sock blockers from the Loopy Ewe, but I'll just have to start a Loopy Ewe fund.

Thanks! I'm slightly addicted to sewing/craft notions. :)
