I had a package arrive on Tuesday when we moved to our new wee place we are house sitting. I had a sneak peak as I popped it into the car and then after the dust settled a bit I opened it. It is a beautiful package and I am very happy with it!!! A lot of thought has gone into it I can tell.
The theme for the swap was “A Mother’s love….” based on the children’s book I adore called “Love you forever”.
Here is the groovy box it was packaged up in:
Here is the contents all displayed:
Included was a 200g 8ply hank of TWC hand dyed in soft array of blues – beautiful! Two patterns to craft some toys for my girls – one is “Honey Bunny” and the other is “Sugar Bunny”.There is a poem by Helen Steiner Rice called “A Mother’s Love” printed out & popped on red card (will have to display that some where me thinks) and a wee stand up quote ornament with “Mum is…” plus 3 stitch markers!
Here is a close up of the hand dyed wool mmmmmm devine!
Now I feel bad that my swap is not done yet (embarrassed icon to insert here!). I feel bad. Sad bad in fact. Life is a bit messy at the moment and I find myself a touch confused with dates & timings and movng house does nothing for my memory or stress levels!!!
I have wool to dye but I am waiting on the special dyes I have ordered to make the masterpiece I have in mind. I so hope it is worth the wait for my swapee……will keep you posted!
