Well, would you believe I received package number THREE from Retromiad, surely the queen of the early senders (and so understanding as she waits for me to catch up!)

It's another super package!  She sent: a needlepoint with some of my favourite colours in it; a knitted bear (I'm the lucky recipient of most of Retromiad's knitting so far; a glasses case with Wile E Coyote on one side and Road Runner on the other (love it!), butterflies and a game in which you 'build' historic houses becuase she knows I collect games.  Thanks Retromiad!

Thanks for three such great packages!  Not too long to wait for mine now, and then we're done.  Yay us!

Great packages everyone!  Those puzzles look so fun...

Can you believe i received Package #2  from Retromiad already?!!

And it's the most amazing package!  Retromiad has not been knitting for all that long, but since the day we signed up she has been knitting for me!!  I'm so excited.

  She sent me a matching scarf and hat in really lovely purple and green with touches of other favourite colours.  I'm so pleased with the hat - i tend to buy hats too big, and this is just right!  It's the first hand-made hat i ever had!  The scarf has my intials on, and you should have heard me squeal when i discovered that! and there are some mittens which are a lovely bluey greeny colour.  I suspect that Retromiad knew that mittens are one of my favourite things! 

She also sent a little trinket box, and a bear!  One day, I will get her to tell  me how she makes her cool plastic canvas things.

It's all so cool, and I know how much work went into everything, which makes it all extra-special!  Love ya, partner!!   Grin

yay!  i sent!  my post office lady was also very nice - i get very twitchy when i'm sending swap packages in case they go missing, but she finished every sentence with 'alright lovey!' which cheered me up no end!

Yay!  Retromiad has been so patient waiting for me to receive.  First the post took forever, then i was on holiday!  But i have it now, and i love everything!

Here are the stationery items - i love stationery, and these are brilliant!

Here's a closer shot of the paper and envelopes, they are recycled and handmade and just my thing.  the paper has purple plant fibres in it, and Retromiad wrote her (cute!) letter on a piece of it!

Here are the show and tells:

orange shower smoothie (smells amazing) washcloth (knit) and bath puff
DVDs of the Shining and National Lampoon which i can't wait to watch
a lovely edition of Jane Austen's Emma
and a pack of Reece's peanut butter chocolates, which ceased to be before they made it to the picture!

You can see the cloth better here

and the piece de resistance!!!  she made me BLYTHE things!!!  Shocked
they are so awesome, and i love that she didn't theink 'eek, creepy dolls!' like most people!

Retromiad made the bags, the hat, shawl and the socks, and all without seeing a Blythe!

And look - knitting Blythe, as kitted out by Retromiad with knitting bag, bear project, needles and yarn!

I know there are loads of photos, but she made such gorgeous things.  Thanks partner!!   Grin
