Wool Candy Treats!

Tomorrow is my birthday and I thought I'd share a few non-caloric treats I have just received.  The first is a "Candy Box" of Aurifil Lana Wool, they are the 35 spools in the white plastic case.  I liked them so much I decided to add some more, but when I look at this picture I realize I may have to go back for a few more in the red range.  They come from Tristan Threads in Richmond B.C., a suburb not far from where I live. 
 Next up are some lovely Wool Charm Squares from Primitive Gatherings in Wisconsin.  You don't get to choose the colours, they are a bit richer in tone in person.  I think they will work well into a couple of projects I have in mind to do.  I've received some kits from them and decided to order some samples to see what colours I'd like to expand in.
 I also received these lovely wool sets from Buggy Barn in Washington.  Once again, they are a bit richer in colour when you see them in person.  The textures within each colour range is lovely.  Deep Sea to the left and Royal Plum on the right.
 Also from Buggy Barn are Holiday Green and Marigold.
 Party Mix looks like it will have fun with Brights.
 This last group of fabrics are from my friend Sandi, from her collection of rug hooking wools.  She surprised me at our guild meeting today with them all bundled up with ribbon. 
The pale aqua across the top was wrapped around all these lovely fabrics.  Sandi knows I'm a sucker for Aqua, Pink and Yellow and made sure she included them in this group of fabrics.
So I must say I'm a happy camper about to celebrate my birthday tomorrow, I had today off to enjoy with friends and attend my guild meeting.  Tomorrow I work and then tomorrow evening I'm out for dinner with family.  Enjoy your day, I know I'm planning on it!
