We posted our parcels on the same day, and four days later, Julia's parcel arrived here in the UK. A week later, my package made it to Germany! We had agreed that we would open them at the same time, so I had to sit looking at this most enticing parcel, teasing me! I had given it a shake and a squeeze, but it didn't give anything away! So on Saturday lunchtime, me in Norfolk, and Julia in Munich, we opened our parcels!
Where to begin?! The first thing I unwrapped was a beautiful, handspun, handknit shawlette in very pretty spring flower shades. It's already been worn! Some oh so soft BFL fibre from Zauberwiese, along with some sparkly purple yarn dyed especially for me! I feel so important!! Some chocolate sheep and some Gummy Bears sweets (Mr JK loves these!), some Euclan for soaking my handspun yarn, some heart charms to sew onto my knitting, a little candle and some plant labels for the garden - all of these were packed into this fabulous parcel! Take a look!
Thank you so, so much Julia for your wonderful gifts. I loved doing the swap with you, and hope it will be the first of many. (And be warned - Mr JK and I shall be in Munich in July this year, so we may come and see you!!!!) Here's to bloggy friendships all around the world - I wouldn't be without them! See you soon! xxx
