Look what was in my mailbox today, I thought I joined a Flickr Group and forgot about it. I was scared until I looked and saw it was from Tasmania, Australia where Rie lives. It is beautiful! Her blog is Crafty Rie she is one of the most talented knitter, crocheter, spinner, I have talked to online since I started blogging. You should take a look at her blog she made the coolest fish I have ever seen. I met her through a blog hop, which is a great way to find new blogs and meet new people online. I sent her some yarn and needles I had picked up at an estate sale because it was a half finished something with connected knitting needles and I had no idea how to finish it. My thought was she would know what to do with it. Of course, she did and sent it back for my granddaughter that is due in January. I never expected that! It bring me to tears. It makes me so happy to be apart of something. Such nice like minded people in the blogging community. Rie you are a treasure!

She also sent me some chocolate! Eeek! My new favorite chocolate cookie is Tim Tam.. It is like a little piece of heaven! I'll try not to eat them all today! Yum!

Rie, thank you so much for the surprise it really brightened my day, week, probably my whole month. Blogging friends are the best. I cannot wait to eat the Cherry Ripe!

Tomorrow I will post my pinning tips from my Halloween quilt! Have a wonderful day! Lisa


  1. Before you eat all of your Tim Tam's you should try a Tim Tam slam. I haven't had one myself but I hear they are pretty amazing. You can find out how to do them by looking on YouTube.

  2. Oh lucky you!!! Don't let Kelly of I have a Notion see your Tim Tam's.

  3. Oh shucks, you're making me blush! But seriously, is the blanket ok??? When you hold it up like that you can see the line thru the middle where the 'original' knitter stopped the knitting & left it to be... I tried & tried to 'hide' that gap but couldn't - maybe when you know the sex of the baby you can weave either a blue or pink ribbon through it?
    Anyway, I'm glad you like it & enjoy the Cherry Ripe - they are my fav!

  4. Wow what a great gift! How sweet she turned your yarns into something you could use. =D

  5. Oh, what a wonderful surprise! A gift from the heart!
