It was my birthday yesterday *grins* I'll give you more details tomorrow, but I wanted to post about the 2 awesome packages I got to finally open...
I mentioned in the last 2 swaps I have participated in, that the lovely people sending to me had put something in the parcel for me to open on my birthday. Firstly, Karen had sent me a card with a couple of things in, as well as a squishy present:
Beautiful New Zealand sock yarn, and a card with a cute ceramic button, sheep notepad and a kiwi bookmark (in case the clues didn't give it away, the parcel came from New Zealand! I love that there is a kiwi bookmark in there!)
And the lovely Tink sent me a birthday card that really made me laugh, and 2 gorgeous sets of buttons, that are awaiting the perfect project to really show them off:
I feel so lucky to have met such amazing people through knitting, blogging and Ravelry. None of these gifts were part of the swap, or expected, they were just thoughtful and lovely things that some wonderful people decided to do. And I'm going to stop now before I become all gushy!
