FEBRUARY ANGEL PACKAGE RECEIVED

Please forgive me for being so tardy in letting you all know I received my Feb package sent by angel Deb herself the middle of last week. It then even took me a couple more days to open it. I am just crazed with my move and now not getting the key ahead to move boxes and trying to find help with the moving etc etc etc.

It most definitely is a lovely package. Look at all the wonderful treats I received. First a very funny card. I love the twisted cat photos. Some very nice treats. I love the rain hat and I love steel drum music. How did you know? I am going to want to play it in my new yard after I move.
AND some more lovely treats. Those stickers are adorable. When I send out a swap I will use them to make a nice card for the recipient.
A pattern for a love bug and all the materials to make it.
AND another pattern for a bag.
AND a story.
I may have had to wait for it for a while but it was worth the wait. I now have a project to make for next Valentines Day. A love bug. I haven't read the story yet but I plan to this weekend.
Thank-you Deb for being my angel.
I will post photos on my blog this weekend with more photos of my furtoddler Solara.

Posting the picture


Here we go. Now you can see Robin B spoiled me beyond all belief. I will warn you that the truffle box was empty by the time this picture was taken;)
There's a pattern and beads (I love the marble beads!)to make a purse with the yarn to do it with. Along with some cute cat paw material to line it with it. There's a s'mores candle with a candle warmer, the Interweave Press "Crochet" magazine, some bath gel, hand creme and body spray all in the same scent (tangerine), there's a little tub of rubber stamps, some blank cards to make cards with, 2 small bags, a dishtowel and 2 washcloths and blue ribbon to make the bunny towel.
Plus besides getting all this great stuff, my older cat Spike got a new place to sleep - he thought the new box (it is _huge_ and so is Spike) was for him.
I really do appreciate this, Robin, more than I can possibly say. This was delivered just after I came home from the vet's from having to put my bunny down. It definitely brought a smile to my lips and I do really appreciate all the thought you put into this huge gift box. Thank you so much.

    There is cotton yarn in lovely spring colours, a pretty box containing CHOCOLATE, a crochet corsage and a bag of buttons. Two washcloths are in there and some of those wonderful patterned paper handkies I love. The picture of them is very poor but they are covered in sheep.
