I actually get a full weekend this week, and to my surprise, I was visited by the mailman! I am taking part in the spring swap hosted by the Tiny Owl Knits group on Ravelry, and boy was I spoiled. This is going to be a picture heavy post, because I was so excited. Sorry some of the pictures are sideways, I didn't notice until after I uploaded them and now I'm too tired to fix them.
Look at how cute the box is!
When I opened the box, I found a letter. It was a very sweet letter, which gave me permission to rip into my goodies before finishing the reading of it...
|Aren't these stickers cute?|
Which I promptly did, of course! Below are pictures of my goodies in no particular order-
|Yummy apple/strawberry scented candle|
|My swap partner is from TX|
|A TX cookie cutter!|
|Chocolate, cleverly put in a plastic bag in case of meltage.|
|Lots of yummy recipes|
|An easter bunny!|
|A pretty teacup and saucer, from her grandmother's china! I will cherish this.|
|These little owls are on the cutest plate|
|This little owl is on a super cute bag!|
|A book that I can't wait to read|
|Handmade magnets that are already on my fridge|
|Pencils and notepads|
|Cute little mini skeins for my hexipuffs|
|A pretty scarf made of of yarn that looks difficult to work with|
|Knitted leaf dishcloths|
|Cutest little owl puff|
|Tea wallet. I love the little button!|
|And it's filled with tea of course.|
|Mr. Mini Fox!!!|
|I can't believe someone knitted this FOR ME. ALL FOR ME!|
|Cute knitted bag filled with pretty plastic eggs...|
|That were filled with tiny animals and aliens....|
|And Hello Kitty...|
|And stitch markers...|
|And more stitch markers (isn't that green/black one pretty?)...|
|And a special hexipuff stitch marker!|
|There was even a knitted egg inside one of the eggs, intended for a cat toy.|
|My cat loved it so much he refused to share with his sister.|
I am overwhelmed. My spoiler knitted up a storm for me, and I am just so pleased with everything! I seriously almost cried when I found Mr Fox. So cute! And the letter was so sweet, I'm such a happy girl right now.
This has inspired me to get my butt in gear and get my swap package sent off to my spoilee... I only have 2 more things to pick up and it will be on its way! (I am NOT waiting until the last minute, I swear. It won't be super early, but hopefully it will be worth it.) Also, I'm not cheating. The rules for this swap are to send no later than a certain date, but open your package as soon as it arrives.My first swap experience is going amazingly well. I've been so happy putting a box together for my spoilee, and my spoiler put such an amazing box together for me! Knitters/crocheters/crafters are such lovely people, I am very happy to be part of this community.
Until next time, happy crafting!
