First off, Mom's package arrived today - a little bashed here and there, but everything inside seemed to be ok. I took all the presents out and put them on the counter with the other birthday gifts and we will have an opening party later. Girl went to the spa and had a facial, massage, manicure and pedicure with a friend for her birthday. She liked all but the facial - which she said she would never do again in a million years.

This is the gorgeous ring that she got for Christmas from her very cute boyfriend. He came over again yesterday and went to the movies with us. He also gave her a birthday gift a day early - a pair of lovely amethyst earings to match the ring.

This is one of my favorite Christmas presents - Miss S gave it to me. It's a Feed 100 bag that she bought at Whole Foods. The profits from the sale of this bag feed one school child 100 meals.

It starts out folded and zipped up in a burlap case that's about 8" wide and 6" deep. It says Feed on one side and 100 on the other side.

Then you unzip the burlap and open it up and it forms the bottom of the bag. The bag falls out of the burlap and becomes a bag - white cotton, printed on both sides.

The first side says "FEED the children of the world" and the second side says 100.

It makes a terrific knitting bag because the handles are just the right length and are affixed with both stitching and metal grommets (brads?). It also has pockets on the inside which is really nice - the side pocket is big enough for a pattern and the end pockets for your bits or phone and such.
I was instructed to fold it up, zip it up and keep it with me to use as a grocery bag, but I declined. I figure it won't get too much use that way - it's much better as a knitting bag.
Cool, hunh?
