way and one from a very special friend. I came in and opened the Dishcloth package, because I love the surprise of who you have. My Secret swap pal was KT. The pattern writer KT. She has great patterns. I chose one of her patterns for my pal and didn't even know she had. me. Before I get to the package, I have to say that I got to spend a few nights when I saw her checking her secret email chatting on GMail chat. I enjoyed her so much. So, on to the package. She wrapped every thing in springy flower paper with birds on them.
Then after I got all the packages opened, this is what was all in it. Two dishcloth books full of patterns. I won't have to go looking for patterns ever again. She sent me some notecards in Pink. Anyone who spoils me, knows I can always use some pink. She sent me a awesome book by Mary Kruger called "Died In The Wool". It is a murder mystery about how dangerous a ball of yarn can be. Sounds good to cuddle up with a hot cup of Hot cocoa or tea she sent. She sent some loose Jasmine Tea and it is so good. I am on my second cup. KT wrote the pattern for my Dishcloth called Candy Stripe it is here. She made me some Stitch Markers. They are teal, another one of my favorite colors and they have a clasp so you can use for Crochet stitches. The yarn is great! I got some tan Cotlin and some Natural colors of Pakucho. She even winded them for me. The soap is Dr. Benjamin Passmore Hand Soap that calms and relaxes stress nerves in your hands. How cool is that? KT is great spoiler and very talented she has even had her pattern for her daughter accepted by MagKnits last year. Thank you KT for being such a great spoiler and a great pal. You definately took the Doldrums away today.
Well, the second package I received today is from a very special friend. I have been on leave for 4 weeks on Thursday and during being off from work I have gotten very use to chatting with two special people. There is Chan and Michelle. I spend most of my day online or coming back to my computer chatting with one or the other. Have you ever met a person and think, she is so much like you in so many ways. Well, a few months ago, my cohostess Anne, assigned me to spoiling Michelle during our Winter Coffee Swap. I started chatting with her as a secret pal and then she was doing a topic of the week where you were suppose to meet someone you didn't know. She chose me to get to know and so I pulled it off chatting as a friend and a secret pal on a day to day basis. I have a awesome sister, but Michelle is like a sister to me (Not to take anything away from you Lacey). We chat daily and she cracks me up when we are talking, it can be about the kids, husbands, holes in our jeans, hair, weight, whatever it is. I am so fulfilled when I we get off chat. She sent me a package. Look! She said it is a get well package but I just consider it a package full of sisterly love. I read her post a little over a week ago waiting for the results on the problems her pup was having and saw all these finished items she had completed. I saw this bag and didn't even know it was for me. Just look at it though, I should of known it looks just like me. This is the Chan Bag and I love it. It will be perfect to put any little project in. She sent me some Knitting Girl Socks and Knitting Girl Apple Mints. I got some of her stitch Markers in pink and pearls. If you click on the picture you will see the one on the far right, its a Snowman. Michelle has listened to me just wanting to be snowed in and envying her snow everyday. She told me she couldn't pack snow in my package, so she sent me a snowman. She also sent me a cute pink and brown mug and matches the ones I got from Cat in the Cocoa Swap. Then there is these Magnets Think Summer - Got Milk. I love my package Michelle, but even if you had never sent me anything, I will always cherish everyday chatting with you and the friendship that started just a few months ago.
