I got mail!
And this is what was in it!
I'm really loving the redhead in the middle there -- the button is much nicer in real life, the colors are sharper. Also Fiber Floozy (the large square one) is looking a bit washed out in the picture, too. They're all really gorgeous on my desk, all shiny and colorful and swanky.
What's that? Why of course I have an old fashioned letter opener. It was my grandmother's. I keep it in the pen holder on my desk:
bone folder. V. handy. Plus it looks intimidating. I almost wish I got more mail just so I could use it more often.
May you have a Saturday replete with pleasant surprises in your mail and selfish knitting in your favorite chair.
PS-- I have a real bone folder, although mine is made of yak horn instead of bone. What can I say, I was being extravagant while in my bookbinding phase. Plus yak horn doesn't flake or chip like bone does.
Although it also can't be sharpened down into a cutting implement like bone, either. So you win some, you lose some.
