Secret Summer Santa

Well, of all the things you expect to happen on a boiling hot Sunday afternoon, getting a visit from the postman isn't top of my list! He claimed he was working overtime, which seemed odd to me, but hey - HE BROUGHT ME A PRESSIE!

I've been taking part in the Angel Yarns forum Secret Summer Santa swap, and I've been waiting not very patiently for my pressie for the past few weeks. I showed amazing restraint and managed to photo it before I demolished all the pretty paper:

And when I opened it I saw this:

The first pressie said "To add to your stash", and inside was 2 skeins of handpainted 100%lambswool. The colours are beautiful, absolutely my favourites and it smells really good too!

The next package said "Perfect for socks", and indeed it is perfect :)

Next was a little pack labelled "Perfect for adding a touch of colour". These are just brilliant, and sizes are 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm and 10mm, none of which I own and are great for a novice crocheter like me.

Next came two more pressies, one labelled for me and the other for the small badgers (I ate the muffin almost instantly - yum!)

I also got a lovely card (which I haven't taken a picture of), and there was a clue as to who my secret summer santa was.

A slow snail, hmmm I wonder who it could be ;) I want to say a very big THANKYOU to the lovely blogless Slowasasnail Kate!

Oooh, lovely prezzies you got you probably already guessed (what with the two of us having similar - impeccable - tastes in the yarn dept.) I think the yarn is fabulously gorgeous.
And funny as it is, my mom's house is home to "Percy the PUG" (geddit?)
Hugs from Hamburg!

Ooo what lovely gifts. You're good for not ripping off the wrapping straight away. The butterfly bag is gorgeous.
