Winter Doldrums Surprise!!

Talk about someone SPOILING me!!!

Mary has ABSOLUTELY spoiled me!!! I could not believe all that I received.....I feel very grateful and a bit overwhelmed with so much goodness!!!

First off is CHOCOLATE.....and not just ANY Chocolate but TRUFFLES.....oh my.....this is my FAVORITE but one of those that I won't buy for myself!! I haven't seen the Hershey's sticks....but oh my...are they GOOOOD!!! LOL!! CHeck out the KnitPicks yarn in Smores colorway!!! How cute is that??!! There are subtle shades of gray and blue with chocolate brown and cream....good enough to eat!!

The washcloths are AMAZING.....the one on the left looks like an angel and the red one has such detail in the pattern.....I can't bring myself to use either of them for awhile....I'll have to admire them for a bit until I can put them to work!! LOL!!

WEIRD.......I borrowed this VERY book from a friend and I have my very own copy!!!!!! (Laura, your book will be in the mail this week)!! (Mary MUST have ESP)!!!

A WONDERFUL bar of VAnilla Bean soap....that will be hitting the shower with me in the morning!!!!

AND......if this weren't MORE THAN ENOUGH????????????

Some BEAUTIFUL roving yarn in the most beautiful shades of purples/lavender!!

Middle is some Blue Sky Alpaca in such a beautiful lilac color...I have not knit with this yarn and I can't WAIT to go through my patterns and decide what to knit!!

OHHHH... another skein of Knit Picks in the Rocky Mountain Dusk colorway......which the mountains are my favorite place to go so how appropriate is this color way???!!!

Mary, you did WAYYY more than you were supposed to have and I feel very spoiled indeed!!!

It is always so nice to find new friends through swaps!! Turns out Mary and I both have dogs with Diabetes....funny how these swaps pair folks isn't it??

A million thanks are not sufficient Mary.....I am so very, very tickled to received the bounty of gifts and appreciate all your thoughtfulness!!!

Thank you Darlene (blushing, not good with compliments :) )
I'm sure glad you like everything, I was really having a hard time deciding what yarn to send, but sure glad I set what I did! You are more then welcome and I thank you again for the knowledge you have over me with teh doggie diabeties! Thats a big help in itself and I guess I am doing good with watching her on my own :) Thank you!! Do hope we can keep in contact! I feel bad for being so quiet there for a while.

Heehee - she knew JUST what you needed!

Vanilla soap sounds especially yummy - like rubbing a cookie behind your ear. mmmmm That sounds so delicious and so very wrong at the same time.
