KCS4 Mail Call!!

Wow. What fun this swap was? Corinne and I had a lot of fun emailing back and forth...our decorating tastes are so similar (go visit her blog, she's got gorgeous photos up there! Oh...well, go after you see this, okay?)

Here's the overall haul:
Coffee, yarn, goodies!

From Neurotic Needles a couple of interesting items:
I use these all the time to corral my dpns, but I didn't have any bejeweled ones! Aren't those pink and lavender beads lovely?

Then, something I'd never seen before - yes, of course you know what that is:
A black coffee cup...swathed in fabric?
Well, yes, there really is a coffee cup.
And when you untie this and pull it off, and flatten it out? Pockets (and you know how Nana Sadie Rose loves her pockets, right? It's an organizer - I don't know how many times I've used old coffee cups to hold pens, pencils, my sewing supplies...THIS is an organizer for your coffee cup sewing supply holder! See? It's too cute, and is a really inventive idea!

There was cotton yarn (two colorways so I can make a market bag), a cotton blend, all in shades of pink, and a couple of balls of Fixation that Corinne didn't have any idea what to do with as she's not a sock knitter...(I am planning to use them as practice socks for Cat Bordhi's sock ideas). Corinne even added in a thimble (!), and then the requisite coffee (Starbucks, thank you very much!), and a dark chocolate raspberry bar...I'm saving that for later. Yummm...

But here's the piece de resistance!
Corinne knew I was envious of her lovely warm weather out there in southern California. So she sent her son to the beach and sent me REAL California "Sand and Sunshine!"

How cool is that?

Thank you Corrine! What fun this was...What a great package! I only hope you're half as pleased with yours!
(((Hugs)))

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
