Thank you, Cathy!

My partner for the From the Heart swap on the sockamanic sockalong list was Cathy. What a wonderful sense of humor she has! See in the back of the photo? She sent me back the air I sent her! (I had joked that her gift was a box of air...maybe you had to be there!)

Anyhow, much of this is hard to see, so let me tell you what's in there. MOST importantly, KOIGU. Mmmmm. Black Koigu. If that had been all she sent, I'd have been happy. But in addition, she sent me.... a Tulip Sox pattern to go with the Koigu (I'll post a photo of them when I've made them, though it may be a couple months before I get to this project. But she made the pattern for me, so I'll get to it sooner rather than later.)

Then there's chocolate to go with it - Tronky (crunchy wafer filledwith hazlenuts an chocolate filling) and Godiva Dark Chocolate with raspberry.

Did someone say chocolate?


Where was I?

Oh, yes, sticky pads. There can never be enough sticky pads in a person's life.

To the left of that is a giraffe bookmark. I have no idea where she found such a thing! It's precious!

And then there are two wind-chimes - a lovely dragonfly one and an especially musical one with a butterfly and on the bell are some hummingbirds. Really lovely!

To the left of that is a nice long beaded necklace with both a safety cutter and a pair of small scissors. They are absolutely perfect - both lovely and solid. What an incredibly useful gift! And they come with a matching eyeglasses chain. Did I ever mention that I wear glasses?

But wait, there's more...

She sent me not only a lovely dragonfly dishcloth, but she also sent the pattern so I can make more in many different colors!

And she sent me patterns for a Noah's Ark with animals. Check that out. It's amazing! Lions and tigers and giraffes and elephants and... oh, my! And she sent me the giraffe Zoo Animal Finger Puppet pattern from the Chester Zoo. I can't even begin to tell you how adorable that puppet looks like it will be!

She ALSO sent me several different project and inventory sheets. And she put all the patterns and sheets in sheet protectors for me!

She also sent me a very cute little love bear, who is sitting on some of the heart bags she packed the wind-chimes and bookmark in.

Next to the love bear is what I think is supposed to be a Connecticut airplane lollypop. It might be a dragon. It got a little bit crushed in shipping, but I'm sure it will taste just fine!

That lollypop is sitting on top of a pile of coffee - more of which is also packed inside the giraffe tote along with a packet of hot chocolate! Now we have to decide if we're going to drink the coffee or save it for trips. Often enough, we go on a trip and with there was more coffee for the coffeemaker.

Oh, and did I mention the card? Yes, she even sent me a card.

Well, I'm quite overwhelmed by all this. Thank you very, very much.
