Inspiration from Ariel :)

I loved all of Ariel's bags and so have started my own, many patterns to go through and try. Here are 2 finished, one with yarn Ariel sent in swap package! I am IN LOVE with Blue Sky's organic cotton, so soft and plush!!! Started a sweater for DD in it. Pink Bag is done with Cotton Ease.

It truly amazes me of everyone's generosity and ingeniousness of their involement in swaps and exchanges.

There are lots of amazing people out there and I have been bestowed upon with their generosity during the few swaps and exchanges I have participated in.

Thank you all for your kindness and bigheartedness!!!! I have been truly blessed by you all.

I arrived home to find this huge box.
And opened it to find this great bag but then opened bag and lookee inside.
Ariel was my spoiler for the Keepin' Cool in Summer Dischloth Exchange. Everything is awesome and I love it all. She has a great photo of the cloths on her blog. Much better than my photos here.
Some many great goodies including chocolate!!!!!! along with the Blue Skys organic cotton I have been wanting to try. Everything color coordinated in yellows and pinks, summery and my fav colors.

Ariel, you ROCK!!!!

Final Topic

Here's this week's topic: Go check out one other person's blog who's answered some of the weekly topics.. find someone you have something in common with, who posted a really cool cloth pattern, or who 'calls' to you for some other reason, and post about them on your blog sharing why!

I scanned numerous blogs, I love reading what others are doing and knitting. I like reading Emjayknits. I loved her Funny Starbucks post and as I am a coffeealholic, it really called to me. I am going to order her Quad Expresso next time I am near a Starbucks. Dunkin Donuts is DOMINANT here but Starbucks is slowly arriving.
