Oh oh oh!!! I received the most wonderful package from my Secret Santa!! I was really worried that the Thailand Post had taken it hostage, but all of my worries were for nothing. When I opened my present, I got really excited when I saw this:


It says "Bitchin Stitchin"!!



I absolutely love this mug that was created by freestyle based on my secret santa's idea. It is absolutely perfect, and I am almost too scared to use it Grin

Cushioning the mug was some beautiful fiber for me to play with.




I've had this book on my Kaboodle wish list for a while, so I was really excited to pull it out of the box.


mmmmm soap!! I miss handmade soap soo much! I am going to have to ration this out Grin


Next up are two beautiful knitted items. Unfortunately I am going to have to wait a few years before I can use these. It is currently 80 degrees outside and it's the "cool season".

I love the colors in this shawl, it is mostly black with some glitz and other colors intermixed.


A soft and snuggly scarf


Finally we have a handmade nostpinne, that I am going to have to learn how to use. I absolutely love the wood!


Well can you guess who my SS is? It should be pretty obvious just from the type of crafts sent and their superb quality Grin



It's MullersLaneFarm!!!! Thank you so much MLF, I absolutely adore everything!!

UUUUUUUH WEEEEEE!  It finally made it!!  I was worried that it was taken hostage also!

Freestyle & I went back & forth for a few weeks before we came up with what the mug would say.  I so cherish the one she made for me last year.

I checked out your Kaboodle list and ordered the embroidery book for you.  Noticed you also had lincoln longwool on the list and grabbed some from my stash.  While I was in the fiber room, I thought I'd spoil you with some camel down & angora (I love angora, but it doesn't love me! Someone gave me the angora not knowing I was allergic to it. I regifted it to you)

Speaking of which, since it will be some time before you'll be able to wear the shawl & scarf, feel free to regift it!

My husband made the nostepinne.  I keep an extra one in my fiber bag in case I need to wind a center pull ball from my wheel when I'm out and about spinning in public.

I had more soap packed in there for you, but I needed to keep the package under 5 lb because of postage.  (That one is Honeyed Almond using honey from my bee hives.)

I am sooo glad you like your swap box!

Great package! 

UF, I bet that after a little while longer in Thailand, 80 will start to feel cold to you...  Smiley

Troublet, here is what is in your kiddies packages: square top hats from a Ravely pattern and lego soap!!


Funny, I thought it would be the earrings that gave me away.  Smiley

Here's a closeup of the noro so you can see all the pretty colors.


And a couple of closeups of the wool ornaments/stockings.  I have been hoarding my wool felt for a while now, but I couldn't resist using them on this project!!

And inside that, a roll for accessories



Unrolled


And inside that..




Everything all together



Thank you Secret Santa, I love everything. and you're still a secret. I haven't swapped with anyone in Florida, although I can eliminate the two on my list whom I know aren't from there.
