Feast your eyes on the wonderful array of gifts which Sarah from Louisiana has sent me as part of the Rowan International Exchange!
Everything was beautifully presented too.
I have forgotten to add in the almond hand cream which Sarah sent too- I was too busy using it to remember to let it pose!
Thank you very much Sarah for the very generous gifts you have sent across the Atlantic.
I am delighted with all of them.
This a lovely large cushion made in Rowan Chunky Print and other yarns. The back is made of an extremely soft suedette fabric in a toning slate grey colour. It is no wonder Sarah's little one kept saying how soft the cushion was!
The colours will go well in my living room and I'll show a pic of it in situ when I've cleaned up a bit...
This picture shows hand-knitted socks which fit perfectly- if I had thought this through I'd have taken a pic of me wearing them.
They are heavy socks for round the house on colder days. The colours are beautiful, but haven't come up quite right in this picture.
Here you can see a knitted and felted tub in what appears to be Chunky Print or similar storing some lovely Lantern Moon 4mm ebony needles (told you she was spoiling me) and a knitted flower which may become a corsage, you never know.
In this picture you can see a big tin of New Orleans French Market coffee, as well as some beautifully scented rose soap in its own handknitted cotton cover. There is also a super soft fuzzy lavender sachet for my drawers.
All in all I am delighted with my exchange gifts as Sarah has been so thoughtful and generous.
In a couple of days I will show you what I am sending to my person (not Sarah) and if I am strong enough I may even spill the beans on my disaster.
