Packages (1)

I absolutely love receiving a parcel through the post.  Sometimes I like to be surprised, but if I know one is coming my way, I fizz with the thrill of anticipation.  Recently, I won Andrea's fab giveaway of a lovely crochet hook roll that she'd made herself.  Such a pretty roll with lovely colour choices and fabric.  So I knew I was in for a treat when a couple of days ago I opened our post box and there was a squishy brown envelope inside.  And inside was a lovely neat package tied up with string (all the best packages are, you know...).  And inside that, was this beauty...

But what I wasn't expecting, what I'm completely blown away by, were all the lovely treats inside.  LOOK!

Fab fab fab selection of lovely coloured hooks of every size.  AND the cutest little scissors.  And pink measuring tape.  I had been feeling like a fraud winning this because I am so new to crochet and only have two hooks.  But now - now I am a crochet queen.

Andrea, thank you thank you thank you.  I am feeling completely spoilt on this cold but sunny Friday morning.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.  (Last sewing class tomorrow - can't wait...)
