My package arrived on Friday.

I waited and waited all morning and until after lunch thinking a package from someone should be coming today since there are several packages I have been waiting for and packages have been arriving around 11AM - 12PM. BUT, alas, I finally had to get in the shower and get ready to go out since I had a lot of Avon deliveries to do. Of course, when I got out of the shower there in the mailbox was a card saying the mail truck had been by with a package and I would have to go to my local postal outlet to pick it up. Figures right. I got dressed and took the card with me when I went out so I could pick up my package on my way home. I finished in time to get to my doctor's appt before I went home and then didn't even get to see him. BUT on my way home I did get to the postal outlet and take my package home. By the time I finally got home I had to get changed as I was going out with my friend for a ladies night out at her church and there was my package sitting there wanting to be opened. I had to leave it until I returned several hours later. This day was frustrating.

All I can say is WOW WOW WOW. Was I ever spoiled. It certainly was worth the extra wait. My partner Amy did such a wonderful job of gathering goodies just for me. Take a look at the entire haul.
AND so you can see it clearer here are more photos.

I mentioned I like local items. Those treats I can't get here where I live and that is what I received.

There were lots of candies from Texas. The chocolate bar is gone. HMMM smacking my lips in delight.
There was Texan seeds for my garden in my new townhouse this year.
There was Texan cookies (already had one HMMM YUMMY!) and cake (Southern Pecan). Of course, there was coffee, whole beans as I have a grinder. Amy sent me a package of Texan Pecan Roast and Taste of San Antonio. I don't know which to try first. I have a small amount left of what I am using before I open a new bag. So sometime this week I will open one.

I also received some Soak and a bar of soap. The soap came from The Loopy Ewe and it contains lemongrass, lavender, patchouli, and amber. It smell wonderful.
Check out this soap and do you see what I see. A little sweater in the middle of the soap that looks like a ewe? Now tell me do you use this soap or put it out for decoration?
Yes I did get yarns. My heart stopped when I saw what I received. On my list is SRT and Fresh From the Cauldron and I received a skein of each.

Here is my STR in color LOVE.
Here is my Fresh From the Cauldron Twilight Esme Cullen colorway.

There was even a little notebook form the Loopy Ewe to keep track of my socks knitted, sock yarns, sock patterns I like and sizes of friends feet. I think I will have to consider getting some of these to give as gifts also
Even Solara received pressies.
All I can say is Thank-you very much for such a wonderful great smelling swap package. I love swapping. It is so much fun to give someone wonderful treats and receive them also. Thanks again for another great Knitters Coffee Swap.

Don't eat those pralines, I am warning you they are very dangerous. I once got two of them in a swap and I still have dreams about them. I think you should just forward them to me to save yourself the hassle.
