Blog Hub Swap -- Day 1
It's no secret that I've been working like a crazy person to put together a swap package for my person in the Blog Hub Swap. I've been so focused, in fact, that I completely forgot that someone was sending *me* a box. So I was slightly confused and then enormously excited last night when I saw that the FedEx driver had left a slip on my door about a package.
I signed the slip, and when I got home today, I found this on the front porch:
Either Chrissy from Stitched Together has managed a way to keep box and biscuit together on a transatlantic voyage, or my dog is having some sort of clandestine relationship with the FedEx guy. Either way, the biscuit was a funny touch.
Anyway, as I was saying... I've had the enormous good fortune to have been sent a box of beautiful goodies:
From Chrisssy at Stitched Together, who I've gotten to know and very much like through bloggy things. In addition to being a great knitter and blogger, she's also a talented designer. I feel like I've won the swap partner jackpot!
It was all I could do not to tear every single silvery packet open all at once, but I managed. As directed, I opened the envelope first, to find this very cool card with a sweet note inside.
And then, since my packages weren't nunbered, I picked this one to start:
Inside was the cutest little shopping bag pouch attached to a carabiner.
And tucked inside the pouch was this awesome bag that I fully intend to stuff to the brim next week at Stitches West. It's the absolute perfect thing for me to take along on my trip.
Clearly, this woman has been doing her homework! Thank you, Chrissy!
Really, I can't forget that I still have about an hour's work to do on my partner's package. I'm hoping she's as happy with hers as I am with mine.
Come back tomorrow to see what's behind door #2. For the moment, I'm going to hop in the car with Mr. Right and head up to the mountains for a nighttime sleigh ride and dinner at a ranch. I'm pretty excited about that, too.
See you tomorrow!
