Marisol of Purls Just Wanna Have Fun organized a sweet little kitchen swap - and my partner was Knittingma. What a great partner - first of all it was so fun getting to know more about her - I mean we had commented back and forth but this was a cool new element, swapping some cool kitchen stuff.
First, she sent me a very kitschy pear loofa, I love it! My husband was fruitlessly (get it, fruit-less? doh!) looking for our old scrubber this week, well, let me tell you - I could not crack open the pear. I couldn't. But I will, in secret. And a neat apple drainer plug - so cool! And the most awesome dishcloth - I had a heckuva time trying to find a nice dishcloth pattern - thank you Becky for taking the legwork for me. I will definitely be making some more - as well as the funky felted oven mitt/ potholder pattern she included. So many things, however, the chocolate was quickly eaten. In the interest of keeping it from getting melty - a girl's gotta do....
We were also to include some handwritten recipes in the swap package, truly, this most cost effective piece was my most favorite - I mean hand written. I love that. I never get letters - or recipes - so this was truly appreciated. Well, she sent me an awesome pesto recipe to try as well as several other neat ideas, including a no-bake potential-birthday-treat-idea for my little one who turns 3 at the end of the month. My gosh, she's not that little anymore, is she? Oh gosh, let's gloss over that.
Thank you Knittingma for the awesome swap - and if anyone has any clever morning *all day* sickness busters - surf over and tell her I sent ya!
I am seriously buttons away from a tiny FO - here's hoping tomorrow I can finish it up and have something knit to share.
