What a week!Â I am so pleased to have sent off my fabric for Bitter Betty‘s swap.Â And I have been cleaning up a storm in preparation for my workshop tomorrow.
When I got back from vacation last Saturday, there was a notice from the post office that I had a package from China.Â I couldn’t imagine what it was.Â When I went to get it on Monday, here is what I found-
Noah, the traveling gnome!Â Mary has organized a trip around the world for this fellow- a Rosa Pomar gnome.Â Shula knitted him a sweater when he was in Australia, but he must be dying of the heat now- it is hot and humid as anything here in Boston!Â Next week, I will take him around Arlington for some photos and will post them on his Flickr site.
And sweet Elia has named me a-
Yep, ME- a Rockin’ Girl Blogger!Â That has had this 50+ blogger smiling all week, every time I think about it.Â This is a project started by Roberta– what a great idea!Â Now I am suppose to name 5 people.Â That is the hard part because it is always leaving out some totally fantastic people.Â Eek, I tried and I just can’t do it right now- I will try again next week.
And speaking of 50 plus- next week is my birthday and I am going to give out some presents.Â Let’s say 4 presents.Â I’ll wrap up some of the fabric I printed and if I have any idea who you are, via a blog or flickr or something, I try to pick out some stuff from my stash that you’d like.Â Leave me a comment or email me – mimik(at)pobox.com.Â I will pick out my giftees at random next Thursday- Happy Birthday me!
