MarvelousToy over at 200 Shawl Project, has been generously hosting several yarn giveaways on her blog lately. I was one of the lucky ones, winning a skein of Tannis Fiber Arts Blue Label yarn in the Mallard colorway. It's a really pretty green!
I was a little worried that one of the many mail people we've been having lately (the USPS keeps switching them on us) had lost my package, but it arrived the day after I sent Leah an email, asking if it had been sent. I feel bad that I bothered her about it, and hope I didn't seem ungrateful!
And I am definitely not ungrateful. Not only did my package contain the skein that I won, but Leah also threw in a bunch of other goodies, too!
She wrote such a nice little note, and there's also a blue and purple skein of JL Bamboo Zania (also: I had mentioned in my comment how much I love blue and purple yarn; how sweet of her was it to pay attention to that little detail and send me a skein with my exact favorite colors?), some candy, and some needle holders with adorable little beaded accents. I love it all.
Here's a close-up of the needle holders:
The package arrived in the middle of a very stressful day at work, and it definitely brightened my day.
I'll definitely be sending a thank-you out in the mail to her!
