Are you ladies ready for the package I got from Ambear?!
It is so beautiful and useful! And I apologize in advance for the quality of the pictures and welcome Amber to put up better ones (especially of the test tubes). The manmeat is not home to take my photos which is usually what I resort to... me an technology aren't the closest..
First we have the group shot!
And now we have the individual items!
Ambear send me an awesomely comfortable pillow that is oh so soft on the knitted side and oh so matching my room/bedding on the non-knitted side!
It is so nice to touch and makes me want to learn to knit even worse than I already did.
The fabric is recycled (hurrah!) from an old shirt and Ambear embroidered a leaf on the pocket of the shirt
The embroidery is dome with regular thread which really impresses me! And sorry about the blur in my photo, I wish I could figure this digital camera out!
Next we have a bar of delicious smelling locally made soap from Mile End Soap Company! The scent is Rosemary Lime and Mint and I took it into the shower this morning and HOLY COW! That is exactly what I need to start my mornings! Amber also sent a knitted pouch for the soap to live inside.
The soap and pouch Amber knitted for exfoliating and soap conserving goodness.
Pouch by its lonesome... It was last night so it was fairly dark but the puch is cable knit out of white yarn with threads of silver in it!
Next I have these awesome test tubes with magnets on the back so I can put spices in them and stick them on the fridge!
This is such a neat idea. I love storing spices right on the fridge via magnets and now I have such an awesome variety of containers to keep it interesting!
Thank you so much Amber! It was an awesome swap and I totally love everything!!!
Also- Ambear received but I wanted to post this teaser photo of my package. There should be photos of the contents soon!
