And this wonderful surprise treat was in it!!!

After being in a creative slump of sorts for a year following my friend, Jo Ann’s passing, this has been a fantastic jolt back into my creative world!

Ida, at Knit-a-While, ran a wonderful Give-Away of Wendy Knits Lace. And guess who won!!!

Mememememememememe!!!

The amazon link has some sneak peek pages and I clicked off  a few photos here for you to drool over for your perusal.

This book has beautiful, beautiful, beautiful lace scarfs, cowls, stoles, shawls, mitts, gloves, SOCKS, caps, and a beautiful lace cardigan,  cami, and sweater. Instructions are very detailed and charts are given for the lace pattern.

It’s a beautiful book, filled with beautiful things. 🙂

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  to Ida at Knit-a-While for such a generous gift/give away! I’m so happy!

Hi Mel,
Whoo hooo!!!!!
I received the Mirabilia Queen today with the little Rayon flosses!
Whoo hooo!
THANK YOU over and over and over and over again!
Thanks for the cute card too.

I will be sure to post to you if/when the Queen is kitted up and stitched.
I’m dreaming of doing her up…will have to figure out what I need
and what I already have here. 😉

Thank you again for ‘enabling’ a fellow stitching addict!
