Ha Ha! It's a Trifecta!

Jeez, three posts - and three days in a row. I've obviously got too much spare time [laughing]!

Yesterday I wrote that there are simply some things bigger than work, and guess what?? It's true again for tonight. When I finally sat down to do bookwork after dinner, I noticed two packages in my office. WOO HOO! One was unmistakenly yarn. And it didn't disappoint! Inside were four skeins of yumminess! Fleece Artist 2/6 Merino "Ireland", Araucania Ranco Multi, and two Cherry Tree Hill Sock Yarn "Foxy Lady". I got these from Pick Up Sticks right here in Ontario.

The other was oddly shaped and the address on it didn't mean too much either. But then I opened it and I REMEMBERED! I'd ordered a Turkish Drop Spindle [made in New Zealand] and as a special gift, I received a lovely bag of roving that's tagged as White Corriedale Cross!

I haven't done much spinning, but Jenny kindly showed me how it's done and gave me a Turkish Drop Spindle to learn on. She also gave me a bag of awesome Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester rovings!! She is THE BEST!

What a lovely surprise at the end of a hectic day!
