How wonderful, and delicious in more than one way!! LOL

Love the yarn. Totally gorgeous. What do yo plan to make with it?? Any ideas yet?

And how nice of her to send you some really nice hand cream. Can we ever have enough? If you are anything like me, I am putting it on a dozen times a day.

Enjoy your goodies, and have a great day. :)

sandie, very true...can't have enuff hand lotion....mine feel like sandpaper most of the time...I literally sand them down w/my nail file for acrylic nails, that's how bad it is!!!! & this stuff is so thick & really soaks into my skin...I want more...hint hint!!!!!! ha ha ha!!!!!
I have no idea what kind of pattern to use yet, but the jaywalker WOULD bring out those colors, wouldn't it??!! good idea, kimi!!!

I think it would look awesome in the pattern that is on the cover of Spin Off in a handpun, handdyed yarn which is diamonds in a lace pattern. I'll look to find it again for ya, Ollie.

Wonderful package. That hand cream is in the top 3 of my favorite hand creams. I actually have to hide it from some friends.
