My birthday gift!
I just got my first birthday gift in the mail today. Yipppeeeee!

The b'day is on Sat the 28th and the package from my sis. She says I can expect another pkg tomorrow. I'm floored!
Here are the contents of this one:



I'm SO thrilled at having got that book, I've been wanting it for so long. I've only skimmed through it so far but the photographs are totally awesome. Yay!

I love my victorian lace.. I can't figure out what to make out of it first though they are so pretty and the back is so helpful

Happy Birthday !! I know on the KH page I should be excited about the book, but you will LOVE the V-slicer. I bought my parents one at a home and garden show while in high school and it was one of the first things I bought when I graduated from college. It is sooooo awesome, you can slice onions, apples, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots....comes in very handy when making soups or stews. However, always be sure to use the holder for the veggies as the blade is really sharp and takes chunks of finger before you know it...not that I learned this by experience after 4 trips to the ER

Yay for you!!! A lace knitting book AND a mandoline!!! Please let me know how you like this book. It keeps popping up whenever I'm looking at knitting things (I think it's trying to say, "Buy me!" ), so I'm curious about it. Happy Birthday!!!

Thanks for the wishes, everyone, getting presents is so much fun

vaknitter, you're right the slicer sounds great! I read up the literature that came with it and some reviews. Can't wait to use it to make dinner tonight (that reminds me gotta go cook instead of surfing)

cookworm, if you like lace you really should buy the book. The photography is beautiful and like dustinac said the hard part is choosing what to try first. Most patterns are for intermediate or experienced lace knitters, so it'll be a while before I can make an entire project.

congrats on the digi cam, jeanie!
