Coffee packet arrived!

Ever since my Coffee Swap 3 packet arrived I thought I'd really install the camera software and upload some photos... but as my written exam is only 2 weeks away and the workload is killing me... well, some other time.

Anyways, my pal Tigerduck spoiled me rotten! She sent me

  • 2 packets of gorgeous coffee beans from Whole Foods (Espresso Sierra and French Roast) - those beans are almost too perfect and beautiful to grind
  • 2 hanks of wonderful Blue Skyes Alpaca in a 50% alpaca, 50% silk mix which is incredibly soft, in a rich emerald green
  • beautiful stitch markers in a matching green
  • 2 little packets of white beads (after all, I'm planning on making Grumperina's Odessa some time)
  • a coffee mug
  • shortbread cookies
  • chocolate chunks
  • scented candles
  • a postcard with a sheep
Thank you so much Tigerduck, you're the bestest pal ever! I hope to post pictures some time, you might have to wait till my (next) exam is over. Hope you received my packet by now!

On the knitting front, I started the left front of my alpaca cardigan (the one that I didn't show you yet... like so many other things) and I just turned the heel on the first sock for my Dad for Christmas (I started that last week or so). I probably won't get much knitting done over the next few weeks (due to the e-word) and definitely none or not much tonight as K and I are going out to a fancy restaurant (Thai) for dinner because today's my birthday. Happy birthday me!

Really chuffed you liked the package! Looking forward to receiving yours. It's probably still hung up in the ever so slow English Postal Service... All the best for your exams! :-)
