But today is Friday and it's time for Friday Favorites. My most recent favorite thing is the Easter swap package from my friend, Mary Rose! I have seriously been slacking in telling you all how wonderful, thoughtful and generous she is. :)
HERE to learn more about them) and Chickens and Chocolate. You had to craft one item for the swap yourself, and include a kit for one of Susan's bunny or chick patterns.
One afternoon I came home from work after getting a text from Mr. Man telling me there was a package from "so and so" and did I know what it was. Of course I knew who he was talking about and what the package was. I had lots to do that day, but I put it all off until I could open the package. And here's what it contained:
Mary Rose included so many cool things. As always, it was packaged in a beautiful storage box. I love these boxes and keep my yarn in them.
Bunny pattern from Itty Bitty Toys. I've been wanting to this guy! There were so many cute bunnies from last Easter, I may have to steal their ideas! There was also bunny stitch markers, a row counter, US 5 dpns, embroidery floss and a needle sizer. Awesome! And a blue project bag to fit it all in! There's also a really cute knitting keychain which has already been attached to a notions bag of mine. :)
Pea Vines, a shawl pattern she gifted me with while I was sick. I really appreciated getting the pattern while I was feeling so crummy!
One of the coolest items in the box was a little crocheted bilby! What a unique and wonderful find on Etsy! He's a tiny little puppet for Squishy. I love him, Squishy loves him. He's a great edition to the knit toys box. :)
Woodland Creatures collection by Susan Anderson. I love that little bunny. I know Mary Rose had a hard time parting with him, but I see him every day when I come home and sit down from work and he always brings me a smile. He's squishy and soft and wonderful!
So thank you, Mary Rose! We love everything. We've enjoyed the knits and the chocolate and marshmallows, the knitting notions and yarn (okay, that's maybe just me...). You did it again! :)
