The Postman Rings Twice!

Hello Everyone! As you may know, work for me has been insanely busy this past week. Therefore, I headed in to work bright and early on Saturday morning! I could not sleep as the looming work was swirling around in my head! So, I headed in to work in the quiet that Saturday’s are – I was amazingly productive – and by the time I headed out, I felt back in control and ready for the weekend!! When I arrived home on Friday, there was a lovely box waiting for me, but I did not open it that evening – the kids arrived back home and there was an abundance of activity swirling around the house. When I arrived home from work on Saturday – Mr. Postman had left ANOTHER package on my doorstep!! I did what any good knitter would do – I poured myself a nice frosty glass of iced tea and headed out to my deck with my knitting and a scissors to open my packages!!

The first box was from my Special Swap buddy – Liz. It was a box filled with lovely treasures patterned around the theme – Garden Swap! She did an outstanding job – all kinds of beautiful things!! Not only did the package smell amazing – thanks to a Lily of the Valley scented “sachet”. Liz, this is my favorite flower!! I went on to discover some incredible treats! From Mint Milano cookies to a sunflower scented candle, from some amazing, yummy sock yarn to some incredible handmade “hand knit by” cards and some handmade “thank you” cards! She also included a gorgeous photo album in my favorite color – green!! Liz, you out did yourself!! Thank you for being such a great swap partner!!

The next box was filled with more treats! It was my package from my Coffee Swap 2 pal Wanda did an awesome job, as well on my package!!

As you can see, she sent some great goodies!! From my favorite coffee – Starbucks Sumatra – to some incredible, yarny goodness!! My very own “sheepy’ mug!! I love it all! She even included some awesome biscotti to pair with my cup of joe! I see some Jaywalker socks coming from the Opal yarn she sent – and I am just in awe of the color and softness of the fingering weight Kaalund yarn! I am thinking “Swallowtail” people! The most amazing part was the card that Wanda picked out – check it out gang!!

It has knitting on it!! Attached to very tiny knitting needles! Is this cute or what???!  What an awesome card!!  Wanda, I love it!

Thank you to both of you for sending me such greatly appreciated, beautiful, inspired swap packages!

Well, I am off to enjoy my treats – and to sit and knit a bit.  Have a great Sunday everyone!

  1. I’m so happy that you received the package and liked everything. I really hoped that you would like what I piced up for you. I had a great time picking up things for you. I took two trips and both times, picked up a little something for you, so I’m glad you like it all.

  2. I’m so glad it arrived safely! What are the odds that is your favorite flower – bonus!

    Can’t wait to see some socks. 🙂 (In case the ball-band doesn’t say it – the smaller skein is for the heels and toes. )

  3. Great stuff. You really had great partners. Garden swap was great fun for Emily and I as well. Cannot wait to see the brown, white gold socks yarns knit up.
