The good stuff

Here's some good stuff from this week so far:

1. Obama fanfare.

I'm sure you've seen a slew of fabulous Obama posts by now, but this one is my absolute favorite so far. In fact her blog is one of my favorites as well. Not just because I know her personally and have a long list of stories I'd like to tell about her, but that doesn't hurt.

2. A rather perfect stack of new fabric to play with.
3. A 1930's set of Singer sewing manuals for $1.
(5 books in pristine condition including the original box)
4. Local produce in my grocery store in the middle of January.
5. A happy basket of birds just about ready to fly away to their new home.
(my first wholesale order going to a boutique in Santa Cruz)
6. A new box of business cards.
7. A new addiction to yarn and knitting needles. This might not be good since I'm already staying up way too late perfecting my rib stitch skills. But it's fun! I have completed a scarf for Hadley and myself. I've started a pair of fingerless gloves and a pair of socks. I don't expect to finish the socks for a long time.

  3. That is all good stuff! Cute new cards. I need to fancy mine up a bit, but at this point I'm happy just to have some! :D

    I wish I had a basket full of birds. I've been entering for cute birdy give aways this morning, and now I want some to fly into my life!
