Thanks, everyone, for being so supportive regarding giving the "gift of time" as one thoughtful blogger put it. Now if only you were my relatives. We can make that happen, can't we?
Sockapalooza socks are blocking on self-made sock blockers. Blowing in the wind. If there was wind. It's fricking hot up here in the frozen tundra. These were only outside for a short time because truthfully I was afraid that a squirrel would take off with them, ala Yarn Harlot's fleece-stealing squirrel. No way was I going to let that happen.
I thought I would show what else I'm sending. Just a few things...
Like this Groovy Retro sock bag. Totally bright and awesome, like my pal.
And this ORIGINS Ginger Float Bubble bath. Plus a little, unpictured, present for her offspring.
This is from my vegetable garden. In North Carolina the growing season was so fun. I'm sure they've had tomatoes down there for more than a month. Sadly, these are among my first cherry tomatoes, just ripening. But pretty all the same.
Looking at these photos, I think I've caught Mandy's groovy green vibe.
