some of my friends from One Shiny Bee sent me some sweet surprises for my birthday!

handknit mini-veggies from Kristy:

bird print on wood, gnome-y gal, and stitchmarkers from Val:

her own hand-dyed Falkland fiber and other goodies from Nova:

home-canned preserves from Rebecca and Julie; caramel sauce from Rangsiwan:

happy fabric from Julie (those carrots kill me!):

a mitten pattern from Stacey (i’ve already cast on with Shelter, of course):

Parisville fabrics and a pincushion from Kelly:

and a super sweet blog post from Jocelyn.

Thanks, Shiny Ladies! It’s been fun to sew with y’all. You make everything Shiny! :o)
