Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

I was busy opening it all and then taking pictures.  Grin Thank You Pixieval! I am currently surrounded by yarny goodness!

First - arm warmers like some on my wist. Wearing now... sooo comfy!


Next, also from my wist! A mug cozy, to keep my tea warmer longer. It fits perfectly on the normal sized mugs and also fits pretty well on the jumbo sized ones.


An apple cozy (or an orange!). Will be great to bring along a healthy, cheap snack when I am out and about.


A cozy for my tea kettle so I don't have to keep heating the water over and over all day. Fits well and I think it would make a nice little project bag too when I am making iced tea in the summer.


Washcloths! I love yarny washcloths! These would match my kitchen but I think I might just keep them in the bathroom for washing my face.


And if all that wasn't cool enough, I got a scrapghan! It is absolutely the perfect size for my lap. I think I will keep it in my office to keep me warm all day.


Thank you Pixieval! It's all awesome. I love it! And I am hopeless at making any of it myself, so it's even better! Thank you! Thank you!  Grin

Guess who found her camera!

Roxsun40's package came in the mail today, and it was all loaded up with goodies. Take a look:



This is the awesome haul right here. See the photo there of a lady knitting in Wilmington? Hanging over my computer already.



Here we've got the rocking lunch kit. There's the reusable bag, sandwich holder/placemat, purple napkin, snack bags, and utensil roll. I am loving the fabric, too.



In this one we've got the purple soap saver, black face scrubbies, lemony fresh coupon holder, and leather coffee coasters. They're re-purposed Braniff coasters, and it's had me humming the Cannibal soundtrack for the most of the day, if anyone gets that reference.



And there's also a jangly cat toy on a stick. Here is Darla more interested in cuddling with it than playing with it.

Thanks, Roxsun40!!
