Woo-hoo! Colorswap Package Arrived!

Tami ( of http://alpacarose.blogspot.com/ )- Thank You!

My Project Spectrum Colorswap package was waiting for me when I picked up my sick daughter from my in-laws' house today! Inside the box was this gorgeous hand-made tote bag (with a matching zipper bag inside:



How did you know I was looking for a neat bag to put my knitting project in? Of course, it currently matches my project - people are really going to think I like the color orange :)

Inside were 5 skeins of Sinfonia (a DK weight mercerized cotton) in a bright orange/red/yellow colorway, and 3 balls of Sugar'n'Cream Cotton (destined right now I think to be a tank top for Willow):



When I started pulling things out of the bag, Willow decided that she was getting in on this action and she came out with a bunny handbag, a fuzzy little change purse and this little metal bucket. The bunny and change purse I understand - what little girl wouldn't want that? I'm a little mystified by her wanting the bucket, though:



And lastly... the whole packaged was cushioned by orange and yellow streamer paper which Willow fell head over heels in love with... as evidenced by this picture of her burying herself in it...



Oh well. It makes for a cute picture. Tami - once again, thank you so much - I love your interpretation of the orange and yellow theme.

And Lolly, if you are reading, thank you for thinking Project Spectrum up - I'm having a great time with this - and I find myself looking around me wherever I go for whatever color is up that month.

Lynne - thank you for organizing this swap - I can't wait for green!

So glad you liked everything. It was a lot of fun.

The picture of Willow with the crepe paper is priceless so cute. I thought she might like the bunny purse.

Take care.

What a wonderful package from Tami! That handmade tote bag is just gorgeous!! I love seeing all the vibrant and cheerful hues of yellow and orange together. It never fails that the tissue paper is always the kids' favorite. ;-) Willow looks so cute! Looking forward to seeing what that cotton decides to become when it grows up... take care, Jo! :-)

OH MY GOD! Where on earth did you find a SOLID WHITE CHOCOLATE EASTER BUNNY and how did you know that I'd been lusting for one for quite some time? I was just lamenting the other day to a friend about how you can't find solid easter bunnies anymore. Much less white chocolate ones. Wow, you are the best SP ever! And White chocolate reese's PB Cups? Ahh! And the goodness doesn't end there. I get seeds and Malabrigo (never seen it live and in person! Thank you!) and the Katcha-Katcha I wanted, sock yarn (can never have too much sock yarn, much less Dancing sock yarn! Squee!) and the list goes on. Thank you thank you thank you thank you! I'm putting together a blog post right now. You're the bestest!
