Saturday Swap Update and more

(Grace and Sarah watch for the swap envelopes to get to you! Thanks everyone for the speedy mailings to each other. It keeps the interest up.  I think the envelope mailing is very cost friendly and it seems to be mailing quickly from one person to another. Boxes seemed to take much longer.  I'll remember this in the future. 
 )
 This is the Yarn that Ellen took from Channon's swap envelope.  I love this yarn.  The sheep buttons are also adorable.  It is fun for me to see the way the contents are changing. It has been a great swap so far.  Everyone has really moved it along. I think this keeps everyone interested and excited about participating.  
 Our hummingbirds are suddenly GONE.  Yesterday, however,  we were treated to the Hummingbird Moth.  This moth drinks flower nectar and flies much like a bird.  We managed to snap a few pictures and then look it up. 
Have you ever seen them?  
THey are yarn friendly so I like them even more!

Happy Saturday!

I love humming bird moths, so sweet and just a little different than humming birds.
Hugs,

I'm glad that yarn found a good home! Although... I'm threatening to cast on a pair of socks today.

I liked using the envelopes for the swap, too. Very little weight to the envelope, so it cuts down on postage. I rarely mail anything in a box anymore.

Hi, Kathy, sorry, but I'm the one who got the great ShiBui and sheep buttons! I hope everyone is as happy as I am with their swaps!

That's one crazy looking moth! I am also amazed that you still have hosta blooms. Ours have been gone for ages.
