Giving Thanks

I checked the mail right before I left home on Wednesday night. I love it when there's a key in my mailbox--it means there's a package for me! Wowza, was there ever! It was from my secret pal, full of fabulous things.

I even liked the packaging. Check it out--the box is patterened inside! The tissue paper was lovely--chocolate browns and shades of blue from kind of a slate gray to indigo.

Inside, there was lots of fun stuff: A skein of Trekking XXL in Burgundy and Chocolate. I've been wanting to try out the Trekking yarn, but haven't seen a color I liked until this one!

A lovely reddish Lantern Moon project bag. This is one of my favorite colors (can you see my couch in the background? It's almost the same color!

A package with soaps, lotion, chapstick, and a sewing kit and a thimble. The brand is called "Plain and Thimble"--great name!

And a great multicolored journal-type book (the cover is striped, and the pages inside are the colors of the cover). I don't know what I'm going to write in it yet, but something will come to me, I'm sure.

Thanks, Secret Pal!!
