Wow! Thanks SP!

Today was one of those days when I just wasn’t all I wanted to be… Didn’t get much done around the house (we’re preparing for a yard sale this week-end) and then while I was the good mother and took Bunny to the zoo after camp, I got overly exasperated with him when we had to make not one, but two emergency potty trips up a giant hill… How is it that the zoo can be uphill both ways?

On an up note I did quite well at the Interweave Scratch and Dent sale, snagging over $200 worth of books I have been wanting for less than $100. Then the best part of all. When Bunny and I got home from the zoo there was the large, bulky envelope sticking out of the mailbox. While Bunny was disappointed that it wasn’t for him, I was thrilled, it was for me! My remarkably local SP had sent me a gift! And what a gift it is…

Thanks SP!

Feast your eyes on not one but two skeins of Classic Elite Silky Alpaca in the Apricot colorway… so soft!

Two mini soak packets. One floral one citrus.

A little Yankee Candle that’s French Vanilla.

And see that blue pouch there? That’s not just a pouch! It’s a handknit washcloth! And there was soap (Burt’s Bees) inside. Hey SP, what pattern is this? I love it!

A beautiful card came too!

Thanks SP!I feel very spoiled indeed! Perhaps this will inspire me to do some massive cleaning out tomorrow. I would love to have a whole mini van full of stuff to take up to my parents’ for the yard sale.

PS: if you’re going to be in Lancaster, PA on Saturday and like yard sales, there’s going to be a whole street of them… let me know if you need details.


  1. isn’t it funny how when you walk it’s always uphill? and $200 on books?! EGAD! thank god for the discount 🙂

  3. Yippeee! Glad you got your package. I love it when gifts come unexpectedly. I hope you enjoy it. The Soak floral is my favorite scent. But, I’m kind of a girlie girl so I really like anything that smells like roses!

    The washcloth pattern is from Mason Dixon Knitting. It’s knit in Rowan All Seasons Cotton, so it can even be put in the washer and dryer. And that lovely “ribbon”? I didn’t actually have any ribbon in the house (odd for me, really) so I used a bit of Colinette Giotto, instead!
