good mail day

Some days I find nothing to blog about, but today isn’t one of them! The mailman brought not one, not two, but THREE yummy packages today. The first is an amazing array of goodies from Heidi:

See those coasters? SHE MADE THEM.
Second is the yarn I ordered from elann to make Rogue:

If it weren’t for that Rachael, I never would have known about Rogue! And yes, I have joined the Rogue-along group!
And third, some additions to my fabric stash:

I know, I know, I REALLY need to stop buying fabric! I’m planning to make yet another bag out of the Disco Dot (yes, that’s what it’s really called) fabric. I wasn’t going to get the spyrograph fabric, but the online store has a $10 minimum, so what could I do?
Well, the Gleevec seems to be working wonders on my brother‘s white blood cell count, but unfortunately it hasn’t turned him into a cheerful being. He has been “helping” me with my new banner. I asked him why there was that ugly white space underneath the banner, and he said it’s because I have “too much trash” in the right-hand column. I then told him that really, that is HIS fault, since he refuses to create a third column for me. So he e-mailed me back and said this is what three columns would look like (and I don’t know why, but every time I see it, I start laughing really hard):

    The Gleevec doesn’t seem to be effecting his sense of humor. That was a good one.
    What yarn did you get for Rogue? I really want to make it and join the Rogue-along but if I buy more yarn…well, it won’t be good.

  4. Melissa says:

    I agree… I am glad that the med hasn’t affected your brother’s sassiness.
    I found some Turbinado sugar!

    Love the saying from the Japanese sticker. Cool! Insane brother is very funny. :)

    Ooh, is that the Araucania? I was seriously thinking of that for Rogue as well–and then I remembered that I can’t wear that color. It’s so pretty, though!
    Your brother is so funny. See, I gotta stick up for him now since we’re both Aries. Heh.

    there is a rogue along? ack. who is hosting? Cabin Fever here, but that spirograph fabric makes me happy just LOOKING at it….and brothers comments…too giggly for words. Glad he is feeling better!

    I don’t know why, but your brother got real belly laugh out of me! Isn’t just like a brother to take the details and put them in their most basic and inane of perspective! See you in the Rogue knit along!

    That is funny! I imagine you could come up with some witty way to mock his interests, too :-) . . it’s a sister’s perogative, eh?

    LOL!!!!!!! Well you have to give him credit for having a sense of humour!! Glad to hear the drugs are kicking in, yeah!

    Hi! I don’t know if I’ve posted before…I do like your blog, even your previous banner. Sending good wishes to the brother. I must say, that is pretty funny! I think he’s got the blog concept down pat!

  13. Leigh says:

    hey, you’re doing rogue–v.c. (as in, very cool!)
    me too–though still trying to find a yarn to use…of course, I have tons of yarn stashed but none will do. go figure….
    I’m glad to hear the gleevec is working for your brother.
