Mystery Swap Package Has Arrived!

Not only did my NEW COMPUTER come in today, but my Mystery Swap package from Lani came in!! Wow, what a Monday! :) Still trying to figure out this new computer, it has Vista on it. So far I like it. Got the email going, now if I can figure everything else.....


Well, let me show you what I got in my wonderful package... heck, even all the tissue paper was pretty! Of course before I tore into it everything was wrapped all neat, this photo is the "after" photo. :) I believe my theme was Costa Rica, I've got to ask Lani about that, she forgot to put the note in the box, sounds like something I'd do! ha ha


A list of the goodies: Costa Rican Coffee beans (OMG do these smell wonderful, even sealed!), Yummy Chocolate, Gummy Bears, 2 patterns (that I had in my Ravelry Que!), Designer Tissues (how appropriate at the moment, with all the nose blowing going on here), a Row Counter, Needle Sizer, Chibi Needle, Bamboo Knitting Needles, a really pretty Flower Pen, a Journal with tropical flowers on it (I've so wanted one of these for my projects! How did she know?), Tropical Flower Sticky Notes, 2 skeins of Panda Cotton for my sock pattern (in pretty tropical peach, salmon & green), & 2 skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash wool (a pretty bright blue) for my bag pattern!



Please excuse the photos if they look too bright, I don't have my regular photo editing software on my new computer yet..... :)

Here are more photos of the goodies..... I know the blue in the photo isn't right, it's too bright here, it is more of a deeper blue, not so aqua as the photo shows.


Thanks so much Lani! You are awesome!!!! I LOVE, love, love all of my new stuff!!!

All of this great stuff and it's only Monday! We aren't done with this week yet!! I took 3 packages to the post office today, some knitterly goodness of my own going out to points unknown.... I'm expecting a package from Cass.... and I'm expecting a yarn shipment from The Sweet Sheep which will include a few patterns. Yes, I said "shipment".... he he, it probably isn't that huge of an order, really.

Ok, enough about me, how did your Monday go? I'm off to blog surf & find out....

wow- every day is Christmas!!!
You'll have to let me know how you like vista, we have it on our new computer and frankly- I'm dissapointed. Seems to have alot of bugs in it.
