Superbowl stash

I am not a football fan . I don't even watch to see the commercials. The only good thing I can say about Superbowl Sunday is that many shops have sales!

My package from The Silver Needle came on Tuesday. They always package it up with pretty tissue paper. (link in sidebar - I've tried 4 times to put the link in here and it just ain't working!)

This is what was inside the box:
Little House Needleworks - Schoolgirl Lessons and Home of a Needleworker too (we won't talk about the fact that I have the first one kitted up but not stitched)
I also ordered another Mother of Pearl floss winder - I just love those things!
From Historic Stitches is the little Remember Me box and chart.

Here is a pic of the box and threadwinders out of the package - I just love 'em - they are pretty enough to leave out on display even before I get the lining stitched and put together. (I need more display space!)
There was also an ink pen and Jelly Belly jelly beans in the box. I always give those to the hubby as they are his favorites. (the jelly beans, not the pen. I keep that for myself! LOL) I'm always amazed that the tiny little jelly beans are individually wrapped!
If you look in the middle picture you will see a purple note paper with a quarter taped to it - that is my 'quarter back'.
Okay - off to do those things which must be done. Hope I can catch a break in the rain to do grocery shopping.

I know up here in the U.P., many shops have 'Merry Widow Weekend" Sales and workshops. They make it a whole season thought and lump football and hunting together. It can be a lot of fun.

Cute stuff you got there. Hope things are going well with you and your family - Vickie

Yes, you did received some lovely things. Don't you just love to order stuff and then get it in the mail? I am so bad about that. Don't tell Artie.
