Home again and my first SP parcel greets me:)
We had a few days with family and friends down in England which I really enjoyed. Came back Saturday evening to a wonderful parcel from my SP:)) According to the address on the parcel she lives in the Netherlands. Hi SP:)))
As you can see from the parcel this person has sussed out the mog:) I opened the package before I even unpacked I just couldn't wait. Everything was wrapped in purple tissue paper and the smell as I opened the first parcel was wonderful. My SP sent me some lovely aromatic nag champa incense sticks,(burning as we speak) I have always loved nag champa, in fact the smell of this many years ago inspired me to start making and grinding my own incense so a truly wonderful memory lane present:)
There were a selection of fruit and herbal teas to try and they are so refreshing.
A dainty wax candle for my shrine. 2 teddies which I think? may be needle protectors? Haven't seen these before but love them, they remind me of gummi bears but I didn't try to nibble them honest(GG)
Chocolate and do you know I have not yet eaten it all up, there is a little left for after I've typed this. It is a rich dark chocolate, the kind I adore:)
And yarn, oh such tactile yarn in pruples, my colour my most favourite colour and a shawls worth easy between them. I'm casting on for this soon as I finish my latest one.
Finally some incredible Eisbar wolle/mohair/PA in a soft creamy white. The label attached says Was sockenwolle? This I think may dye?? This is 3 threads together, it is beautiful and there are 2 large balls of it 100g balls with 490m in each. Enough for something special. My SP also sent a card with tulips on, a hint of where she is from:)
Thank you my dear SP for a wonderful gift tailormade for me. So much thought has gone in to each item and I appreciate it very much:))
When you read my next post you will understand what a breath of beauty receiving this was
