happiness continued...

Yarntini Sunshine Stripe
Yartini Sunshine Stripe

Doesn't this skein just evoke happiness? I was able to trade for this, just to bask in the sunshine of it. Yarntini is a magician, not to mention kind and creative.

This colorway makes me think cotton candy and Icees. Which, I think was the point. :)

Block 9
another block from my happy quilt

My happy quilt is almost ready for binding. It will end up being a simple wall hanging to put in my office right where I will look at it when I need it most.

Last up for a happy tidbit, Amber of Life in Color is co-hosting a fun little swap for crafters - she is so amazing. I'm excited to be part of this, I have dabbled in everything and most of the swap goodies are supposed to come from your stash. Oh, and how mine could be culled. Check it out here.

Lastly, a little update on my husband - he is doing amazing. Just 2 weeks post brain surgery, today we went out to lunch and have a movie date planned for Monday. Isn't that something of a miracle? I think all of your prayers really helped - thank you!

I'm glad your husband is doing so well!

I've been reading The Happiness Project recently. It's an interesting book, and I might start a project of my own.

Great News about the husband! Mine had an abcess on his brain about 6 years ago and they said it'd take a year to recover...but 2 weeks later he was working again! The brain can heal quickly!

Love the Yarntini...I've got the variegated/semi-solid set (I traded Wollmeise for it) because I had to have that sunshine goodness!

So glad your husband is doing well. What a relief and a blessing. Both yarns are so bold and yummy! I will have to see about getting my hands on Yarntini. It looks like some gorgeous yarn!
