Swap from Valerie
Yesterday I got a WONDERFUL package from Val in the Netherlands. She and I were in the Color Swap 7 on Ravelry.com, and she was given my name. (It was a secret swap.) She chose some lovely things in purple for me, and I can't wait to use everything!
We were to include something handmade, and Valerie made me a WONDERFUL headband. (I know the picture is terrible, and I'm sorry. My camera is being weird, so I was stuck with my camera phone.) She also sent some fun roving in a grey and purple stripe, and some really pretty lace weight purple yarn. The box was full of purple goodies, a bag that folds into a tiny pouch, a little bag that will be perfect for holding scissors, a new loofah, two really pretty placemats, chocolates, licorice, lavender incense, a set of circular needles, a seam ripper (which I REALLY needed), sesame candies, the waffle cookies that are so Dutch (and so yummy), and a really pretty card she made for me!
I feel completely spoiled rotten! DH and I delved into the waffle cookies immediately, and I spent the evening looking at lace shawl patterns for the yarn she sent!
