Yes, sir – yes, sir, one box full!April 29, 2007 at 11:34 am | Posted in swaps, Thrifty Goodness | 10 Comments
This is an overdue box of cashmere and wool sweaters that I’m sending west to the lovely knitsonya* for a personal swap. I’ve been blest to find so many wonderful sweaters for very good prices at the thrift store, and the poor dear has lots of competition for such gems in San Francisco. She’s has such a talent for working with wool; I can’t wait to see what she does with them!
And I know it’s better to give than to receive, but what I received…! Sonya sent the most thoughtful and generous package. Each item was chosen with care and I love it all!
The fabric’s working its way through the wash so that I can start using it right away.
I’ve admired her vintage buttons, and now some of them are MY vintage buttons :o). Amazing aren’t they?
She also sent candy, which didn’t last long enough for the photo shoot (Mr. Lisa K. LOVES candy), and some pretty pink thread and cotton batting. I’m aaaalllllll set for crafting this spring, between this great swap and some quilt shop gift certificates and books my wonderful friends gave me for my birthday.
Thank you, Sonya! Your package will be en route tomorrow!
Next post: new crafty books!
*News flash: Sonya’s j u s t opened an etsy shop. Check there soon for some of her sure-to-be-wonderful creations.
