My amazing SP parcel:) And visiting Bears

Look what arrived this morning, my final fantastic parcel from my SP. Who BTW I have now found out is called Alison(knittingran on rav) Thank you so much Alison for all your gifts through this past few months,I hope you have had an equally great partner. You chose the most perfect gifts for me . Here you see Shilasdair baby camel handspun in purples. I have never tried this yarn before or indeed any Shilasdair so I will really enjoy knitting this up. I'm thinking a cowl?
Stitch markers with AM that Alison made me:) A bath bomb for tonights bath and a coaster with my perfect diet on it. The Celtic Cross necklace is lovely , I've always had a thing for colour changing stones, the mercurial side of me I think. But then:-
just look at Silvie my new fairy friend:) Isn't she amazing?
Alison I love each and every item you have sent and I do hope we continue to keep in touch.
Watch your mail now I know who you are:)
Today was rounded off with a visit to 2 Bears we know. Ursula and Papa Bear made us a yummy lunch of carrot and coriander soup followed by home made cakes. I always love to visit them because both are very creative and it always inspires me. Papa Bear had made a beautiful Clapotis in lilacs and his wood work is superb.
Ursula makes so many things she makes my head spin, think ornaments in felt, spinning, knitting,memory albums to name but a few. I came home topped up with inspiration.

Oh, you lost a petal on your bathbomb! I guess it didn't survive the journey too well. I hope you like the litter of Amber Moggies! ;-)

Sound like a great day out again with 'The Bears ' :)
