Ta dah -
I took part in a swap earlier on this year held by Tracy from Madboutbags. The swap was titled 'Send a little love' & I was partnered with Sarah.
I forgot to take any photos of what I sent to Sarah so if you want to have a little nosey click on her name.
In the parcel Sarah sent to me I found two balls of yarn & some seeds. What a great gift for a gardener who likes to knit! Also a handmade card, some heart shaped notebooks, a little garden scene cross stitch which I love, I might try & transfer it on my gardening apron thingamajig! A little necklace which has the saying 'I love you to the moon & back' which is quite funny actually & has come in quite useful.
Harry is a loving boy & is quite keen to tell me he loves me often, our daily conversations tend to go 'Love you mum', 'Love you to H', 'Well, I love you more' ' Are you sure as I love you most!' & so on & so on. I've been waving the necklace at him saying that I have physical proof now. I'm waiting for his loving nature to wear off now he is a teenager!
Last but not least was a bag of chocolate caramel hearts which I ate & nearly saved one for Mike but he wasn't home that night so I ate it!
I do believe that if someone has sent you some yarn that you shouldn't stash it but use it straight away.The yarn Sarah sent was a self striping one which I am knitting a hat for me with on circular needles, its called knitting in the round & your work joins up as if by magic. Something I thought I would never be able to do! I'm trying some socks next.
Photos courtesy of my new camera from Mike Pike who was given very strict instructions on which one to buy for me! Without these instructions Mike would of gone for a far more expensive model with all sorts of fancy things. This would not do for me as a)I'm buying a fancy dslr one for his birthday & b) I only wanted a basic point & shoot which I can sling in my pocket.
I have a Sony Cyber-shot if anyone was interested.
Enjoy your day all xx
