wool goodness

Al-righty then, about that necklace from yesterdays post.
Last month, I entered a contest on Sarah's blog, and won!  I was so excited to win, and even more thrilled when I received the package.  As in, mouth hung open for many, many, minutes.  I was completely floored by her generosity.  
Inside the package was this gorgeous one of a kind handmade felted bag.  
And inside the bag, she tucked not only the necklace (which I have worn everyday since I got it) but this darling pincushion.  I just love the fabric and wool combination.
And this beautiful, felted, merino wool scarf.  It is thin and light, and I know it will become a favorite of mine come fall.
Many many thanks, Sarah.  I love it all so much.
