Yarn or a Tale's package was the first I got this week, a roving that I won for unventing the colorway! She is a fellow Michigan-der, and I picked things that remind me of Michigan in the spring.... maple syrup, cherry blossoms, and asparagus. The colorway is called "May" and I am delighted to have some of it! Leah has a colorway contest every month, and you all should go enter! It's fun.

The next day brought my handmade spindle swap package! amymarie
did a wonderful job of research and everything was perfect! Do you see the pretty spindle? It is so cheery and sturdy, perfect to take with me on the go. I started spinning my "may" roving on it , of course!

The fiber is luscious, 4 oz. merino and 2 oz. of carbonized bamboo. Earl Grey tea leaves with lavender made the package smell wonderful. Sweet little necklaces for Verity, Mercy, and Peace. Chocolate. Stitch Markers.

It was a wonderful package.

Then, yesterday I got a package from a lady that we stayed with on our recent vacation.... she put in two pretty knitted dishcloths....I wish I had taken a picture of them right away, because they have already seen use. :-)

So this week? I am feeling rather spoiled.
