She sent so much and made me so happy. My hubby commented that he couldn't compare in gift giving to what I received from her. (Truth told , we only do cards for Valentines as out Anniversary is Feb. 2nd. )
Thank you so much RainyDaze :). I do feel really bad for her though, she received no package from her partner. This was not a swap where we were paired. I did my part and sent to my partner, though I have not heard from her and I so hope she has received it (according to tracking it got there a while ago). I have asked to be a "Swap Angel" if need be , so I know one way or another she will get spoiled.
As this was a known partner swap , we had communicated with each other, so I received mine today and she should get hers tomorrow. I was going to mail out on Monday, but couldn't because of the bad storm that hit the area. Yes I am a California girl and I don't drive in ice, snow and yuck that Michigan seems to have each February. So on Wednesday I was finally able to get it in the post and I sent it two day Priority mail. I hope she feels as spoiled as I feel.
On swaps , I love them , it makes it feel like Christmas all year long. I need to get better about the aesthetics of my boxes. I have just been putting stuff in a box and putting a card , then mailing. But the two I received this week made me think. They took the time to wrap , used tissue paper , put confetti, personal touches and such. I can do this , I just never thought about it, why I don't know. But, you learn something new everyday, and this is my new today.
I did have finals this week in one of my college classes, Accounting is done !! Woohoo!! I think I passed the class with a B, but I am waiting for my final grade. It was a very hard class and because of it I am not sure I ever want to take another online class. The in person class I am taking had midterm this week and I have an A so far.
Knitting this week, I have been working on the shawl for the choir teacher. I have named it Lemon & Violet as the instructors name is Mrs. Lemon. I have Knit in Public with this a lot this week , between choir last Thursday, college knitting today and it has become my take along project as my socks are in time out.
I also have been working on the huggable hedgehog from Fibertrends. http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/V7_toys.html I am using Cascade 220 in light pink and a pastel eyelash for the fur. My niece has a two year old who needs a snuggles from Great Aunt KaRi (man I feel old now). I have also been working on a wash cloth that has hearts on it and trying to find a baby blanket pattern I want to make up for my other niece who is pregnant now.
It has been a good week for me , I hope it has been a good week for you also. Please post a comment if you actually read this , I am wondering if I am talking to myself.
