First Birthday Gift of 2008!!!

Yay! My birthday is next week, while I'm in Yosemite. So I am celebrating this weekend. But today I received my first gift. Check them out! Little piggy stitch markers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. My mom bought them for me. I guess all those "I don't have enough stitch markers" comments sunk into someone's head.

I must admit. Beautiful stitch markers are sort of like expensive sunglasses. I love having them. They are so much better and nicer than cheaper ones. But I am not likely to spend the money on them for myself. So it is extra cool to receive them as gifts. The first set I have I received in a yarn swap. This is my second set. I had 12 before. Now I have 24. Woo hoo!

I should tell you all about them. They are pewter with crystal beads. They were made by a lovely woman names Rebecca Thomas at Waters Edge Jewelry. She helped my mom get them super quickly so I would have them for my trip to Yosemite. Check our her stuff. It's gorgeous!
