A Sea of Grass
Henry the Navigator has braved hills and valleys, crossing the plains , mountains and deserts until finally he sailed in today on a sea of grass !
Immediately upon his arrival, he disembarked and strolled our deck (must have felt familiar to him to have his feet on the wooden planks)... where he promptly stood stunned by the beauty of Mount Rainier..... at this point, our amazing wanderer dropped to the ground and said glory be, I'm glad I arrived! (ooppsss, actually I think that was me who said that... tee hee)
It's Yarn Aboard... and it's HERE!
Without further ado, may I present.... the stash! Thanks to Ramona, I'm doin' a fine happy dance here! She has treated me to a gorgeous yarn that I have never used before... way to go Ramona!!! Did I mention that I absolutely love it? ! "Appletini" colorway, hand dyed by Scout.
My dear swap pal has given me so many lovely things that I am speechless (well... almost... I can still gush on a little more if you insist!)
Here's a few closeups of some of the goodies that were hidden in the box along with this fabulous yarn:
Organic Gourmet Cocoa - YUMMMM! (I'm going to make some as soon as I finish this post)
Gardener's Handcare lotion - that is being used as we speak
Taos Sauna - a fabulous smelling hand made soap that I think I'm taking to my office, so I can use it everyday.
Hand felted button.. wonder what I'm going to sew that on.. don't know, but it'll be special.
Project Cards for spinning and knitting - these are handy little things.. totally clever, on which you can track all the info you wish you would have written down, but forgot to.. no more excuses now :-)
Eco Diary - a sweet journal, with a lovely hand painted tree on the cover; filled with blank pages. oh, it inspires me to return to my writing..
It is completely clear to me that Ramona took an enormous amount of care with all these delightful gifts. Thank you for this. I love them all.. it's just perfect
And now, since K is heading back out to the post office..... Henry the Navigator has already set sail for deeper seas..... safe journeys!
