Hmm. Don't think we'll be seeing snow drop pics for a while then. Although it has nearly all melted.
And this came in the post:
From my SP in Sweden! Sooty decided he was going to help me open it, after he saw the pussy cat card inside. The cat is a siamese. Which do you think is more handsome? (and see what I mean about the sunshine?!)
Inside were two beautifully wrapped parcels...
One of which contained lots of yummy chocolate and sweets. According to my SP this is the type of candy all Swedes had when they were little. It looks yum. I think there are some chocolates like rolos in there, and pastilles (fruit?) but I'm going to have fun trying all of these (yes, OK, I have already started!)
And, finally, the bit you've all (but evidently not Sooty) been waiting for: YARN!
6 balls of 100% Alpaca in some gorgeous colours. It's SO soft and strokeable. I can't decide what to make - there are some lovely patterns on here but I quite fancy a very soft, cuddly and warm hot water bottle cover or maybe a nice squishy cushion cover or alpaca bedsocks. Oooh, anyway I think I might just sit and stroke it whilst I have a think... Maybe that's why Sooty's ignoring the yarn, he's jealous that he's not being stroked too?!
THANK YOU SP!! WHAT A LOVELY LOVELY PARCEL :-) :-)
