Busy hands

This beautiful, sunny weekend, my hands have been busy:

jean patches in progress
Sewing patches on my jeans,

Contented cardi in progress
working on a sample of the Contented Cardi for Hannah,

Waiting for Margie
preparing a meal for a very special guest,

Margie's gift 1
holding a precious package,

Margie's gift 2
discovering the beautiful gift that lay inside,

Margie's gift 4
touching and admiring the incredibly fine stitches, and soft, smooth bamboo.

ooooh now you're making me jealous !!! (no, I'm kidding) ;-)
thank you so much for your visits on my blog & for your comments. As you have understood now, I'll be visiting M this summer, and it'll be the biggest trip (and most exciting too) of my life. I'm not sure I'll be sleeping a single minute LOL
The bamboo pebble is amazing, and it was matching your outfit so perfectly !!! And the wrapping is just as perfect as what it was holding ... that Margie ... she really is one of a kind.
Have a great week ahead !

Lovely white light seeping through everything, happy place. And how lucky you are to have a resurrection fern crocheted rock, I adore them.

I see that you got one of the new covered bamboo pieces. I love all of Margie's work. I just completed a project inspired by her stones. I love the gentle color of the yarn she used on your piece. Carolina
