I received an amazing package in the mail today from Awynkoop (Amanda)! She really did a wonderful job at stalking me. Here are the photos(which don't do justice).
On the left side is a wonderful canister filled with different types of tea (one of which I am drinking as I type this), the top is an infuser which I have been desperately wanting. She sent me items to make microscope slide pendants (glass, silver tape(?), beads and some nice pieces of yarn). Included was also some nice orange beads, dark red leaf beads, silver toggles, and magnetic clasps(very neat I have never seen them before).
She knitted me a fulled (I am such an incredibly novice knitter I don't even know what it means) gray hobo bag. On top of the bag is the amazing wrist warmers she made me in my favorite colors (orange and green).
At the bottom of the photo are hand made note cards she and her daughter made. They are perfect. She also included Bert's bees hand salve so I can have nice soft hands after a day of digging.
Close up of the fulled hobo bag. It is her own pattern! (Guess what! It also doubles as a hat...hehe I am such a geek).
Close up of the wrist warmers (can only show one hand..camera in the other). They fit perfectly!
These are the awesome note cards(w/envelopes). I will want to keep them and not use them...maybe I will frame them...hmm that would look good on the kitchen wall.
Amanda also wrote a really nice letter explaining each item she made and why she chose it. I am so pleased and proud of my new items. They were exactly what I wanted.
Thank you so much Amanda.
P.S. I did share a cup of tea with my sister this evening as I showed her all the wonderful things you sent.
