Birthday Parcels :)

Today is my Birthday and I took part in a Birthday swap on Craftythreadsnyarn forum. I sent a parcel to Joy for her Birthday on Friday and she sent me one which arrived on Saturday especially as I am going to be away all day today. I opened it on Sunday so I could take pictures for this. Thank you so much Joy for a fabulous and georgeous parcel :)


I received a georgeous skein of The YarnYard sock yarn, Joy sent me a mini slein in a previous swap!! Isn't that thoughtful and far thinking :) There was beautiful handmade chocolate brought back from a trip to Bruges and 2 fabulous heart shaped buttons. They are divine! :)
And the piece de la resistance was an exquisite Forest Canopy Shawl from the FSC diva herself!! Knitted in The Knittery merino/cashmere 4 ply. Just wonderful!!!!!!! Thank you so so much Joy. :)
