My How Your Stash Has Grown

Or, thanks, Mom - you ROCK!

It was Christmas Eve, 2007, and my mom called me.

"Go to this website and pick out what you want."

"Wait, I just walked in the door...what's going on?"

"This company is going out of business and this other one is selling grab bags for really good prices."

"But I don't really need any more yarn." I know, can you believe I said that OUT LOUD?!

"Just go to the web site and look."

So, I pulled out my lap top and turned it on...the fan whirred as I waited for the wireless to connect. Then, I clicked on my Mozilla icon in the sys tray, typed in the web address of and voila, grab bags of yarn valued at $99 were priced to move at $25 each. After clicking submit, my mom decided to have the package shipped to me instead of to her. Ooh, and I will be getting a package too...I thought. I was kind of excited about it at that point.

Imagine my surprise when on Friday, January 25, I got a package...address to me at a but similar but different address. Thank goodness for the post office's need to deliver.

Below is a movie depicting the contents of the aforementioned and pictured "grab bags." Don't be jealous...if you are a contest winner, or if you are a secret pal of some just might find some of this stash in your parcel.
