Package from Hawaii

So a few weeks ago I offered to make some simple sewn bags for my dear friend, Opal, in Hawaii. She is a wonderful Island Girl who knits, spins and generally trys to keep me in line with my projects.

She ordered the fabric, and then shipped it here - with a "few other items" she assured me saying that most was for the family...

One of them was this little package all wrapped up in tissue paper -- I slowly unfurled it and found this gem....(my picture does not do it justice!)
I am in shock and Awe!! It is so soft and gossamer like - I think Opal has part goddess in her to make items like this!!
Oh yes- the fabric is in there - and I plan on making the items for her tomorrow from it, along with some Milk Chocolate Covered Caramel and Macadamia nuts, some macadamia nut cookies and a Hawaii calendar for 2008!!
She is sooo sweet!!

Wow.. I didn't know your daughter wrecked her car. I'm glad she's ok. I'm getting caught up with my blog reading. Thanks for the photos of Kraemer Mill. Now I don't feel so bad for not being able to go. Looks interesting. I really have "startitis" recently too. Pretty soon I'm going to have to buy another set of Denise needles because I have so much stuff going.
