Lookie, lookie what I got!!!

The UPS man came early this afternoon and it was a welcome interruption from Mount Laundry! Didn't Marlene do a great job for her first swap? And she the nail right on the head. I LOVE everything! I got four, count 'em, four big balls of Lydia's crochet thread size 10! It's a beautiful natural color and I can't wait to use it. I got this month's Interweave Knits. I lost count of how many projects I want to make in there. I got a beginners book for knitting, crochet, tatting and embroidery. I've always wanted to learn to tat, so now I have NO excuse. There were two pot holders that match my kitchen beautifully. And she made a me a lovely tea-towel topper and matching cotton coaster, or maybe it's a small dishcloth. I've already used it underneath my beautiful autumn leaf mug, which came filled with flavored teas! And last but not least, I got a set of stationery with gerber daisies and a fun-funky colorful pen with which to write.

I loved everything and am so thankful. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Marlene!
