I got my parcel this morning! =]

These are all the pretties I got from my wonderful partner Holistic Knitter!



All together there was:
- A knitted wash cloth, with Welsh dragon. <3
- Four postcards all with photos of different castles near where she lives (I love castles)
- A cross stitch Daffodil pincushion (I've needed a pin cushion for ages!)
- Four recipes for: Picau ar y Maen (Welsh Cakes), Cacen Firth Llandudno (Fruit Cake), Cawl Cennin a Thatws (Leek and Potato Soup) and Caws Pob (Welsh Rarebit - which is being made ASAP!)
- Three postcards of local places (including where she lives - it's looks beautiful there) and a leaflet about Llechwedd Slate Caverns
- A pencil, rubber and a Welsh dragon slate coaster from the Llechwedd Caverns
- Welsh Dragon socks! (I love crazy coloured socks and dragons! <3)
- A little dragon toy.

Thank you Lynda/Holistic Knitter I feel really spoiled! You were a brilliant partner and I now want to move to Wales! =]

I love kingfishers too, so Dee couldn't have chosen a better bird for the bag.
We often see them flying near the river in Betws y Coed (about 15 mins from where I live)  Grin
