I finished up my sewing today, and I got two packages in the mail!
I was sewing a genie costume, seen here finished, and as modeled by the Bee. There are supposed to be matching pants, but I messed them up – I accidentally sewed the outer leg seam on the wrong side. So it’s worn with just a pair of slacks, and looks quite fine.
One was from my tea swap buddy, Michelle. She sent my quite possibly the coolest swap package I have ever gotten, of which there are so many pictures that I have put the rest of them below the fold, and seriously suggest that folks on dial-up grab a cup of tea while they wait for them to load.
One was from me. I am apparently the most absent minded, distracted and oblivious mailer in the world — I packed up Michelle’s package, toted it off to the post office and mailed, all without noticing I had neglected to put her address on it! Instead of flying off to Texas, I am taking it to Michigan with me tomorrow, where it will be enhanced at the Fiber Expo!
Okay, swappity goodness.
Once I dealt with the huge pile of packing peanuts (which were a big hit with the Bee), I had this stack of little packages to open. Stacks of little packages are great.
There was a knitting pattern – Bella, from Fiber Trends – and there was yarn to knit it with.
There were assorted spoil-me gifties – gardenia shower gel, and a scrubbie, and some cool note pads.
There were nibbling goodies, and a yummy looking soup packet.
There were cups. A jalapeno mug (so cute!), and the most amazing flower cup set — I love this flower cup!
And there was tea! Three kinds of tea I’ve never tried before, including a lipton tea in their new pyramid tea bags. I’ve already brewed a cup in the flower tea cup, and it was so pretty!
Michelle, everything is great, and I love it all! Thank you so much!
