A Good Friend and an Old Project

Thanks to the lovely Kathy B, there is a summer swap going on. My swapmate, Judy, really knows me. 

She sent a great skein of sock yarn in the cool colors that I love, and the perfect napkins for our Fourth of July cook-out. The card is quilled and just exquisite. I may just frame it!
And this little pewter  button is so cute -- and exactly the kind of thing I love to have at hand for mixed-media work! Thanks so much Judy. I'm working on your package!
I got quite a bit of knitting done last week on my Fullerton Cardigan.  As of this writing, both sleeves are done and I just need to knit the button band. This must be the fastest sweater out there.

I'm having quite a busy weekend, but that's another post!
