I've been spoiled


I arrived home on Friday to find a package waiting for me...

Kaylee was my swap pal for the Fall into Autumn Dishcloth Swap. She truely went "above and beyond" the call of duty.....

Gather around as I show off my goods....



First off...the star of the show...She made me a gorgeous yellow dishcloth using a pattern from the Dishrag Boutique...Check it out...she used Feather and Fan I just love the color - so bright...it reminds me of all the yellow leaves I see around me.

And...what other goodies did I find?



What's a package without some chocolate and good smelling stuff? She sent a package of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Hot chocolate mix. Woo Hoo!! Gonna hide that from my children. She also tucked in a set of a nummy smelling candle and body mist spray...scented warm vanilla sugar by BTB. Lean close...can you smell it? Trust me...it's awesome...

And in this cute little package...a bar of softly scented soap...I love it.



And...yes, there is more...Check out the yarn...not one, not two, not three, but...four skeins of the softest yarn I've had the pleasure to touch in a while...



I e-mailed Kaylee to thank her for the package and ask if she had a particular project in mind when she picked out the yarn for me....here is what she said, "I picked the yarn specifically because you mentioned that a wool blend with angora would match your personality- "strong, stable, down home...weathers well...wool but with a soft heart and mushy side...angora"- and it was so deliciously soft and warm. I thought it might make a lovely tam and wristwarmers, or perhaps a cabled scarf... just something soft and snuggly for the winters there."

How thoughtful is that!!!



Thank you Kaylee for the awesome package. I can tell a lot of thought and care went into the gifts you chose for me and your timing was perfect...I really needed a "pick-me-upper".

That yarn looks fantastic. I can't wait to see what it grows up to be :-)

That's one great box of goodies to help cheer you up. Being a teacher is as frustrating as it is fulfilling...and with a cold and what seems to be a rough spot you do need some cheering up. Glad you got so spoiled and that yarn ..YUP it sure looks yummy.
Take care and rest up.
