Still swapping…and stash-building

As I was heading out to the post office with the parcel notice from yesterday,  I found another notice in the mailbox!  What fun, two packages today…I could get used to this.

And indeed, I received my tea swap package from Nora:

First, the fiber goodness: naturally caron SPA bamboo blend in the lovely berry frappe shade, and elsebeth lavold bambool (bamboo/wool) in a deeper shade of purple. Bliss! A lovely purple button. And a wonderful Swedish-flag-coloured tea cosy – with curls – that will definitely be put to use!!

The tea and edible goodness:  Davidson’s Vanilla Cream Spice that I couldn’t wait to try and was immediately steaming away in my Baa mug, Twinings Pomegranate Delight, two leaves and a bud tea traveler with african sunset – organic rooibos and lemongrass, Paris blend from Passiflora tea, some strawberry drops, and a jug of Connecticut maple syrup!!

In short, a truly wonderful package.

And the second parcel?   My yarn from Tasha for her Knitty Knitty Bang Bang contest!

a skein of A Verb for Keeping Warm organic merino worsted in jade –

and a skein of Lorna’s Laces’ Helen’s Lace in Sand Ridge – gorgeous lace weight!

My stashes – both yarn and tea – grew today with my new treasures, and both will be enjoyed!

Oh, and since the weather has unequivocably decided that it’s summer, our Stitch-n-Bitch group will become the Stitch-n-Beach group for the season. Although I’m sure we’ll miss our café, we’ll have fun trying all the places along the boardwalk once again.

Are you making any seasonal changes?
