While We're Waiting ...

While we are all waiting for me to announce the three winners of my contest, I thought I'd show what we recently gave to Mini-Dee for her double-digit birthday ... it was one of the best presents she ever "glowed" about!

As a long-time admirer of my crochet hook collection, I decided it's time for her to have her own beaded beauty:

Pictured above is her new "Sonshapes" crochet hook (via a ebay auction win) consisting of Indigo Royalwood Dymondwood and Swarovski Crystal Elite Cascade, Size H/5mm.  The hook measures 6-1/8 inches in length.   Along with the hook, they included a beautiful rosewood giftbox and engraved both the box and the crochet hook at no additional charge.  The cost (my winning bid plus shipping) was around $26 -- the look on her face when she opened it: PRICELESS!

Naturally, she's already had it out on long a "test drive" ... she's crocheting "tights" for one of her dolls ...

I can just picture the look on her face!!!!  And I'm sure she has already produced some beautiful "coture" for her dollies!  Today is our big day - we are moving out and I will be out of touch for about 1 week - AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!  Can't wait to catch up on the blog when I return!  --Haley
