Thank you Martha!

Came home from errands (including the library where I bought some books I really dont need! LOL) to find a very heavy package on my doorstep.

Look why it was so heavy! Look at all those books! BONANZA!

And a beautiful scarf - and a gorgeous green ball of yarn - how did you know hubby and I love (probably to the consternation of our neighbors!) wind chimes! A lovely green butterfly (how much more springlike can you get? Add in the tussy mussy and it is definitely spring time!!!) windchime......a decadent sounding bar of!!!!

Spring 2012 Swap Package from Nate

So, I was very surprised to get a box . . . I looked at the label and it said Nathan Lamirand.  Isn't it funny that when you are so used to think of someone using their nickname that when they use their full name, it causes you (or at least me) to go "who?"

Then it clicked in and I was very excited.  I opened the box and it was bright . . . really, really bright.  This is a perfect bag to carry my knitting or for shopping or taking on vacation with the summer reading that was also included.

Nate also included books by some of my most favorite authors.  Kathy Reichs, James Patterson, Robert Ludlum.  I have to admit that I have already read two of the books BUT the cool thing is that I can share them with my swappee . . . since I haven't finished to put the package together yet . . . I not only have the box to send the stuff in but I have some books to include . . . and they are awesome reads.  Really, really good.

Nate also included two skeins of yarn.  The yarn is very soft.  I like to make hats for our Christmas hat/mitten/scarf tree and these yarns are perfect for that project.  The yarns are soft and the colors are lovely.

And here is the box unpacked . . . six books, two skeins of yarn and the incredible bag.  I really love the colors in the bag.  

Thanks so much, Nate.  It is a great box.
