CROCHETOHOLIC SWAP GOODIES FROM AN ANGEL!

I RECEIVED THIS AWESOME PACKAGE FROM MARY B. YESTERDAY!  SHE IS MY ANGEL FOR THE CROCHETOHOLIC MARCH SWAP.  I COULDN'T HAVE HAD A BETTER ANGEL!  
LOOK AT ALL THE WONDERFUL THINGS SHE SENT!  THE CERAMIC PURSE IS SO CUTE.  I WILL KEEP IN ON THE TABLE NEXT TO MY KNITTING SPOT SO I CAN KEEP SOME OF THE SMALL SUPPLIES I AM ALWAYS TRYING TO FIND WHILE KNITTING. CAN'T WAIT TO TRY THE TEA AND H2O TEA MIX.  AREN'T THE MUGS GREAT.  THE CANDLE IN THE TIN AND FRAME ARE ALSO THE CUTEST!  I HAVE ALREADY STARTED FILLING UP THE CALENDER WITH IMPORTANT (DATES BABY SITTING FOR GRANDKIDS, RECITALS, BIRTHDAYS). THE DRINK MIXES LOOK DELICIOUS.  WE WILL TRY THE MARGARITA MIX ON FATHERS DAY AND THE GRANDKIDS CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE THE LEMONADE.
THIS IS THE YARN SHE SENT.  THE COLORS ARE AWESOME!  I LOVE SUGR AND CREAM AND I LOVE THE COLORS OF BOTH YARNS. THE SOFTEE COMBO IS GREAT. THE GIRLS ARE ALREADY PICKING OUT PATTERNS FROM THE PATTERN BOOK MARY SENT(MISSING FROM PICTURE)  THE BAG IS SOOO BEAUTIFUL. CAN'T WAIT TO USE IT.  IT IS SUCH A GREAT GIFT.

THANK YOU MARY VERY MUCH.  THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT PICK ME UP!  YOU HAVE BEEN A FANTASTIC ANGEL! I LOVE EVERYTHING IN THE PACKAGE!  YOU REALLY KNOW HOW TO SPOIL YOUR PALS!

THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE LEGWARMERS I FINISHED.  NOT LARGE ENOUGH FOR THE INTENDED GRANDDAUGHTER SO HER LITTLE SISTER RECEIVED THEM AND GRANDMA HAS TO MAKE ANOTHER PAIR FOR BIG SISTER.  WILL MAKE SURE THEY ARE LONG ENOUGH THIS TIME.  MARY, TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION - I DID MAKE THEM FROM 1 SKEIN OF THE FANTASY NATURALE WITH SOME YARN LEFT OVER. THIS PAIR FITS A 3/4 YEAR OLD.  I AM SURE I CAN MAKE A PAIR TO FIT A 6/7 YEAR OLD FROM 1 SKEIN ALSO.
THANKS AGAIN MARY!
