....................Blizzard in July...LITERALLY

Oh my oh my! After yesterday's whine fest, I am feeling very guilty to tell you what I got in the mail today! First of all, the Blizzard in July Exchange on the Tattinggoddess site was supposed to be just a tatted snowflake in a card, wasn't it? Quick and easy. WELL... take a look at what I received from Irma Luna in Santiago, Chile.
Wow! I was so shocked to see this package. There was a lovely note from Irma, and a postcard from Chile. A hairpin lace maker, pony shuttle (oh, bobbin shuttle, my favorite!) A beautiful drawstring bag with the three lovely threads you see in it, needles, roses, a large pin to add 'something' to, and finally the snowflakes! Five lovely snowflakes. There are beads on some as you can see, and all different. Everything was so great to receive.. thank you sooo much Irma!
here is a little closer view of everything...

WOW! is right--you must have been a good girl so far, since your July Santa sent you such wonderful things. Those exchanges are always so much fun. Would you please put a larger picture of the hairpin lace maker on your blog? I don't think I have ever seen one.
I am so glad today was a better day for you.
