I guess I was a little more than accurate yesterday when I said my 2nd swap parcel would be arriving soon. :) I came home from work yesterday to find a box of soon-to-be-opened goodies sitting on my kitchen counter. :)
My lovely swap partner sent some great stuff and little X really enjoyed helping me open and explore all the things inside.
Among the goodies, I found 2 skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash in a beautiful blue (which, if you're me, you can never have enough blue),
a sheep keychain and some fun stitch markers (which will definitely get put to good use!),
a family pancake recipe and real maple syrup (YUM!),
a Winnie the Pooh Bear blanket for our picnic and for X to cuddle up with, and a teddy bear kit - complete with his own clothing!
The teddy bear kit comes with a teddy bear body, stuffing and some fun felt coins to put inside next to Teddy's heart. This teddy had a smiley face, peace sign and BFF coin. The BFF & peace sign went next to his heart. I let X help me put the smiley coin in with the stuffing and he placed it next to the bum. :) So cute! :) And to complete it all, he had a little gray sweatshirt to put on. X couldn't stop loving on this bear. There were lots of hugs and kisses given out yesterday (along w/ a little nose biting) and someone didn't want to share with me so I could grab pictures.
The Pooh Bear blanket is really soft and squishy. I took it out of the packaging for pictures and to let X have. It was put on the couch while I was putting together Teddy. X picked it up and brought it over to me so we could sit together on the couch under his new blankie. Swap partner - you hit the nail on the head with these things! :) He also kept rubbing the blanket against his cheek (that's how I showed him how soft it was).
Thank you, thank you for everything, swap pal! :) It was fun to open and to give to X so he could play. You made him a very happy little boy yesterday!
