I received a lovely care package in the mail from my friend Ewenique. I love prezzies! What did I get? Well…
It’s full of love, I can tell. There are tins of strawberry and apple teas from Fortnum & Mason (a company that’s nearly 70 years older than my country); delicious lavender shortbread cookies (this keyboard was relatively crumbless until these came along); a "Mrs. Beeton Traditional Housekeeping" bookmark (yes, I must be a very good housewife with all the recreating I do); two gorgeous bone crochet hooks; a wonderfully fuzzy felted bowl (or very small hat), and an amazingly soft and squishy hank of plum Fyberspates Scrumptious 4-ply silk/merino yarn (did I mention it was soft and squishy?).
All arrived lovingly cradled in a darling fabric pouch. Ewenique, did you make it? The pattern is a repeating squared hearts motif, but if you squint a bit, it looks like a flock of wee sheep. I see the hidden message now: wool = love. ♥
Thank you, Ewenique!
