the KWH iPad Show #7 πŸ’œ my birthday yarn stash

frowning Mac computer

Hello & Welcome
to my 7thΒ episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is the frill of the yarn . . .
which I’veΒ draped dreamily to decorate the
late-to-be-leafy trees in our backyard πŸ™‚

Last month,Β my birthdayΒ heart’s desire was forΒ anotherΒ yarn-filled year with hubby β™₯ But thenΒ my iMac died… quickly dashing anyΒ yarn stashing I’d planned 😦 Ohhh, butΒ have I told you lately how he loves me?

May long-weekend foliage

He loves me SO much that…

On April 29th, one day before my 15% off birthday discount voucher from Herrschners was dueΒ to expire, heΒ actually reminded and encouraged me to use theΒ coupon to buy MORE yarn! Yup, you read that correctly πŸ˜‰ More yarn, after all the years I’ve spent stretching our home’s yarn stashing capacity. That’s love, I say… true love! And so, to Herrschners I went!

My target was $150.00, since that amount seems the best deal for shipping. It was deliveredΒ in time for theΒ May (aka Victoria Day) long weekend, when our trees were still leafless and bare. So dressing the trees in frilly yarn was good yarn bombing fun πŸ˜‰ Now a week later,Β they are fully-dressed inΒ foliage and theΒ yarn is stashed back inside!

NOTE: I am simply a customer writing this of my own accordβ€”notΒ affiliated with Herrschners in any way.

In addition to yarn, I’m so glad to finally get my hands on a few crafty tools that have been on my “list” for a while. Inspiration for the heart candy mold came from reading Β this post by Janice at TSBΒ πŸ™‚ And with approximate yarn sale savings of $250 + vouchers ($375 according to SRP), I’m pretty pleased with my birthday yarn stash purchase… totalling $139.73 shipping/taxes included πŸ™‚
