Look what Sarah from the US sent me as my Christmas SWAP items 🙂 Aren’t they all wonderful? There is a bunny pattern, ornaments, floss bobbins, floss, a bookmark kit, a seam ripper, soap and so much more. It’s all so pretty and I am very happy 🙂

Today was yet another great mail day, as I got a RAK from a fellow German raveler Domic – who happenes to live in the town I will be working in soon 🙂 She was so kind and sent me some lovely lavender (one can NEVER have enough lavender, trust me) and a lovely photo of a blooming lavender 🙂

I already removed the little blossoms from the stem and added them to my ever-growing box of lavender. Thank you, Domic 🙂
