Finally...from an "Angel"

I have been participating in Secret Pal 9, which ran from October through January. I was a good girl...I kept in touch with my SP (the one I was sending packages to), and sent my 3 required packages. I had heard from the person "spoiling" me, and while she sounded really nice, she kept apologizing for not sending anything because she was really busy. Several times I even had to contact the hostess to say that I had not received anything and had not heard about receiving anything (I know it's better to give than to receive, but SP is about BOTH). My SP then wrote and said that she was preparing one big package. Well, the deadline came and went and....pfffft! Then about 2 weeks ago the SP hostess (who shares my first name, the lovely lady) wrote and told me that an "angel" would be taking over and "spoiling" me. I heard from this angel within a day. She asked me many questions to refine my original survey of preferences. Today I arrived home to find a package (and the mention of another). What a great package it was:
All items were inside a lovely little gift bag (fabric) that will be very useful for keeping silk scarves or my lace blouse. Inside was a lovely note and: a skein of Rowan soft baby yarn, 50% wook, 30% polymide, 20% cotton...50g; a darling little tin of tea...rooibos, peppermint and chamomile (herbal tea, no caffeine) - yup - I'll be having THAT on my way to work tomorrow; a bar of brazil nut soap from The Body Shop (great for travelling), alba papaya mango body cream, purse sized and smells SOOO good; and, in a little envelope made from a map (clever) stitch markers for resizing, a larger set for larger needles, smaller for smaller needles and one on a business card for Zero markers..."jewelry for your knitting." This was definitely worth the wait. Thank you so much, are terrific!!!!

    I'm so glad you like your gifts! If you like the tea, try Foxtrot from Adagio (I mixed this myself from the same ingredients). More coming soon...

    your SP
