A birthday season

My birthday season started on Monday morning when I opened my parcel from lyonesset and found that she had sent me an elegant teapot with a gorgeous custom made cosy and excellent tea.



But then my birthday celebrations were put on hold until the evening when friends took us out to the Bamboo House for Peking Duck. It was a taste sensation!

On Tuesday my season continued when I went to the post office to pick up three more parcels from my birthday swap partners.

Trishca sent me a beautiful reversible project bag, a bag of wool tops in Ice Pink (must get that spinningwheel going again), tea and a beautiful tea wallet and stationary (I can't get enough of it).



From shanbliss I received a beautiful lace caplet, more lusciouss tea and stationary and a skein of malabrigo (I've been wanting to get my hands on some of that for ages and now I have my own to pet!).



And finally fitknit spoiled me with Tofutsies, a cute mug, a lovely knitted lace bookmark, a book of Sudoku (my secret addiction) and darling little sheep stitchmarkers.



Aren't knitters just the greatest? I'm off to have another play with all my fabulous gifts.

Ooh what gorgeous gifts you received for your birthday. They all look wonderful and it is nice to get things in the mail that arent bills.
