my first jar entry

At last – my first “happy event” of 2013 to write down and add to my jar: the arrival of my give-away goodies from Patricia at Daniella Joe’s blog, in Florida, USA. Thank you so much, Patricia, it was SO nice to finally find the parcel notification in the mail box, and to open the presents. (It’s been a long long time since I received anything wrapped in christmas paper!)

Last winter Karen made herself fingerless gloves with that soft fuzzy Boa yarn and they were gorgeous, so I think I’ll use my gift for a pair of those. Karen already copied the pattern for me, now all I have to do is locate it….

The little mirror is just my taste – I have lots of Indian-y things in my flat, and I think with a magnet stuck on the back, this will look perfect on my fridge.

And as for arts and crafts keeping me sane – well, Patricia, I don’t think I ever really made the sanity grade even before I started painting and knitting – but it’s a nice thought!

I see from wikipedia that you live next to Dade County, which is where the book I’m reading at the moment is set (Stormy Weather, Carl Hiaasen). He makes me laugh out loud.

I hope your generosity gets returned to you times two. I’ll post a pic of the gloves when they’re ready, although it won’t be cold enough to wear them here for a while yet. But when it is, brrrrr, I’ll probably keep them on when I go to bed.

To be continued…

    Hi Jill!

    I’m glad you had a happy event to perk you up a little and I love how you are so organized and already have that jar thingy going on. I was thinking about that very thing the other day and told myself, “self, you really need to get a jar out and start placing some of the hilarious things that John says in there before you forget.” :) Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to see the gloves.

    Love and Hugs,

      Get your jar now. I have been able to add another entry since the give-away (it’s an achievement, but I figured it was positive enough to be included), so now I have TWO things. Just as well I don’t have a Negative Jar for the year, because that would have more than 2 entries in it by now :(

      It’s by Carl Hiaasen, he’s written a lot of novels and I think there’s only one that I haven’t yet read. He is also a newspaper man and a columnist, so I’m sure you’ve read some of his other stuff. Loving my wool :-)
