Today was an interesting day

Today was quite an interesting day. I had all my Phat Fiber samples boxed up and ready to go. I went out to the car. Strapped the little man into his car seat. Got in and put on my seat belt and went to start my car. Car did not start. The lights were not turned off last time my car was used. I was bummed. So I had to call the husband and get a jump. So I get the jump and cruise over to the post office in Oildale. So I am hoping the battery is charged enough to start when I came back out it wasn't. So I had to call my dad and get a jump. Fun fun. To top this moment off I need gas but can't shut off the car because I will need another jump. LOL talk about your catch 22's. LOL So samples are in the mail and everything is good now

Today I received my Yarn Dieters Snak pack from Spinning Daydreams.
I absolutely love the handspun yarn it is so gorgeous. When I opened up my package I saw the cutest yarn cupcake. The yarn is set in a silver cupcake holder and has a bead on top held in with beading wire. Cute little cupcake. Enclosed is also a pattern for a cell phone holder to be made out of the yarn as well as a nice packet of green tea powder from stash teas. I love it so much. Thank you. here is a picture:



























this is the bead for the closure.















also here is stripey noro sock number two. I am three rows away from starting the heel.

    Hi, I've signed up for your blog,
    but I'm wondering, too, what size needles do your markers fit on? Are they all one size? They're very cute.

    hi Vickie! So glad you like your cupcake.... the tea just gets stirred into 8 oz. of cold water... easy. It isn't sweetened, so taste and add sweetener if you desire.

    Guess I'll add directions for the tea. :-)
