I think all of you who have secret pals(in the last round of SP10) had better step up to the plate- since I got the parcel to end all parcels today-obviously, my secret pal is the BEST. I ripped everything open (there were , like 15 packages inside this huge box!!!!)-except the things for my dog (!), my daughter (!!) and even my husband (!!!) (he will be beside himself- he often feels a bit put out when I get these parcels, and he doesn't get anything) Suffice it to say- my Secret Pal ROCKS!
A million thank you's-
Okay- here are the photos- taken when I got home after work. There are a couple of things not in the photo, I see- but here is the list of it all (I am sooooo very very spoiled)
First of all- this HUGE box-I think it cost my SP over 20 dollars to send it. The return address was Colorado Springs, but she said she is Canadian from Northern Ontario. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........
First of all- everything was wrapped. Everything, including a dog bone for Bear (the packaging is there, because this is what happened to the chew bone--and he is not about to give it back for A PICTURE. You can see he has chosen the bone over his leash, in the picture. So- imagine it. My daughter is a crafty one, soo my SP chose a lovely potholder making kit from Klutz books (very very appreciated- she loves it. And today was the first day of Grade 3 testing-it couldn't have come at a better time). My husband's gift was an LED Tuff Lite (his comment when he opened it? "Excellent! Just what I need!") And now- my haul. (And what an amazing group of beautiful things!)The yarn: 3 skeins of Cascade 220 in a lovely dusty green, a lovely skein of Tofutsies by SWTC in a mix of green and blue and yellow for socks (and two patterns as well) and a lovely skein of Euroflax Linen ( a blend of pastels). Thank you, thank you, thank you. AND TWO (!!!) sets of Brittany straights-oh my heart- I love them! AND a wonderful knitting bag-an Eagle "Good To Go" knitting bag. I haven't seen this one before- it is totally awesome! And a cotton scented candle (pretty). And notes and a notepad and a stunning blank book for my notes (I go through these rather quickly) and two stamps and a silver stamp pad and a tea towel and lovely hand made stitch markers (I think you should make more-even though you said you were new at making these-they are really lovely) in a bag in a little Mary Englebreit box, and some mints in a jewelled metal box. And a pair of socks-"Well Being"-restorative Sea Cell Socks- very interesting!!!. And a mini cross stitch kit. And a hand made "dish rag" in lovely rainbow cotton. And a key chain. And last but not least-3 white chocolate Kit Kat bars!!!! (Okay- 2 now-yum yum)
I don't know if I have left anything out, but let me tell you, Secret Pal-I have had a pretty nasty week (work things) and this came at the very best time.
You have spoiled me too much, and I love you for it.
