Oh lucky me!

I was lucky enough to win Queen of the Froggers' blogiversary giveaway! A lovely skein of sock yarn was promised, and when the package arrived last Thursday I discovered not one but two skeins of gorgeous sock yarn, and lovely soap roses and a cool beaded bookmark! Not to mention a couple of ziplock bags, and the most perfect card!


Check out the booty! (not that booty! Because that would clearly be spelled "boot-eeeh" and would not be appropriate content for this blog!!!) How perfect is that card!!
Lookee the pretty yarn - such great greens - I couldn't quite capture the range of greens (and some grey as well) in this yarn - so excited to see how it knits up!Lookee more pretty yarn - do the colours look familiar? Check out my shoe!! OMG!! Same colours! (again with the colours - it looks a bit pink here, but is much redder in real life!)And lovely soap roses - I've never seen these before - they are far too pretty to use!!

Oh lucky me! Thanks Queen of the Froggers! If you haven't had a look at her blog, drop by (although she's on a little break now - computer problems - grrr!) - she's about to start a steekalong and also has Eunny Jang's Venezia in mind! Wow!

That is so cool that it's just like your shoes. You do have a bit of a 'red-loving' reputation.

What loot!

I LOVE those soaps. So delicate!

Brilliant collection of goodies there! I just adore those rose soaps - I agree, they're too beautiful to let near water!

Wow, what a neat parcel to receive and how appropriate Rose Red Soap. Loved the look of your cake in Mouthfuls of Heaven. I would have had all the icing on the top. You know what a sweet tooth I am.

Congratulations! Those are great prizes. I love the card too, and, of course, one can never have enough zip-loc bags....

Those soap roses are so pretty! I don't think I could use them, either.

The yarn is fab-o! And that card was too cute.

Lovely wool!

Fun! Fun! But now how are you going to keep just one pair of socks on the sticks? I think that's too much temptation you just got handed...
