60. Defeat the Winter Doldrums

My dishcloth swap package arrived today. I truly feel like it is Christmas this week. Although this time, my swap partner is Muslim, so that may not be a very good analogy!

Tanja was my swap partner. She lives in sunny CA, and sent some spring goodness my way. I didn't take a picture of the box prior to unwrapping, but everything was wrapped in glorious purple tissue paper. And I do love me some purple.

Tanja included a bottle of Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day dishsoap. While it doesn't say it's organic, it is all natural (I read the ingredients!), a tin of Green & Black's organic hot chocolate, a bar of Plantlife Lavender soap and a bar of California Bay Laurel soap. Plus hair mask (really come in handy since I just had my hair colored), face mask, salt scrub, and the ever popular dishcloths. She forgot to take a picture of this one, but I don't think the butterfly shows up very well.

But in real life, it is easy to spot the butterfly. And check out that yummy yarn in the back. She included two skeins of Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre - one in maroon and one in a spring green. I'm not sure what I'm going to make with this yarn, but it is very soft.

I don't think I've left anything out. Tanja, it is a fantastic swap package and I thank you for everything!

Wow you have been in a lot of swaps. You are getting really nice surprise packages. I LOVE your mittens. I am finishing a pair of Cable Beaded mittens in Dream in Color and I can't wait to wear them. I don't know if I would have the patience to do the Bird in Hand mittens. Enjoy
