A Swap, A Swap, My kingdom for a Swap!

Ok, not really, but it has been a long, long time since I have participated in a swap of any kind. Emily over at Yarn Miracle has been hosting various dishcloth swaps over the years and I love to participate in hers. They are low-key and fun. This time the swap theme was Spring and I had fun putting my swap package together. Sadly, I did not snap a photo before I sent it on its way. On Wednesday, my mailbox was filled with a lovely box of goodies. The lovely Coralee over at Five Alarm Fire¬†made my day. I loved what she put in my box. Take a look! ¬†First off, she packaged everything in this great box. The box was crammed with goodies, including four packets of flower seeds and a packet of flower bulbs! So funny that she sent them because my husband and I were having a conversation a while back about these empty flower pots that I have and what I was going to do with them. I am going to get some potting soil this weekend and plant them! I can’t wait. If you look at the bottom left corner, you will see the full contents. She sent some lovely lotion (LOVE LOVE this!) some cute little spring flower that moves back and forth. I am going to take it to work so that I can see it everyday, and this adorable froggie ornament! Of course, the point of this swap was yarn and a pattern for a dishcloth. Coralee outdid herself and sent a full booklet! I can’t wait to sit down and knit some new dishcloths for spring and summer. Last but not least,the box contained chocolate. Coralee had put in her note that she was concerned that it would melt because Florida is so warm. I am very glad to say, that the chocolate made it intact and at the moment is in my purse for when I need a pick me up. Thank you so much Coralee for the lovely package! I will do another post when I decide what I am going to knit! For a closer look, click on the photo.

    Christy,
    I’m so glad you liked your box of goodies and really glad that the chocolate was not melted all over the contents :) My swap partner put a couple things in baggies, that’s what I should have done with the chocolate, just in case; I’ll know next time.
    Do I spy a cool, wet nose and a paw checking things out???
    Happy knitting!
