Look what I received from my ISE4 pal!

As you can see from the photograph...


...the box my ISE4 pal sent me arrived here safely.

As you can also see, I wasn't the first person to gaze upon its contents...


I was a bit nervous opening the box, but I crossed my fingers that the contents would still be intact.

The first thing I found inside was a couple of brochures, thoughtfully enclosed by the Australian Quarantine people...


And I soon spotted the reassuring message I was looking for...


Phew!

It wasn't long after that that I had everything out of the box.

There were some beautifully wrapped packages, all in co-ordinated paper and boxes...


... along with a card featuring a photo of a woman who wears even bigger knickers than I do. ;)


The scarf my pal knit for me was tucked away inside the cute little 'takeaway' box...


And here it is in all of its glory...


I can hardly believe that this is the first lace my pal has knit, as this more detailed photo shows just how beautifully knitted it is...


And she even knit it in two halves so the ends would match perfectly...


I was totally spoiled too by my pal's choice of yarn...


... which as you can see was Mountain Colors Hand-Painted Yarn 'Merino Ribbon', which is incredibly soft and just pure luxury. And the 'Marias Falls' colourway is absolutely perfect -- the colours in it are amazing, and just what I would have chosen for myself! The photos I took don't even come close to capturing just how fabulous they are in real life.

And what was in the other packages?


A pack of the extra dark chocolate 'Lindor' truffles -- which are definitely one of my favourite things -- along with a very special pack of tissues. That's right... I can now live the dream and wipe my nose on hundred dollar bills! :)

And the ISE4 pal who sent me this fabulous package? It was Debi, who has a blog called Knottykitty Knits. And despite the lateness of this posting, it actually arrived well before even the closing date for sending ISE4 packages.

Thank you, Debi! :)

Hi Pamela!

I'm so glad you are finally able to join us in cyberland again! I must confess that I was quite worried that the reason you had not posted was that you hated your scarf and were trying to find the right words to be nice about it....I'm so glad you like the scarf and the colors! Hope you can wear and enjoy! Cheers, deb
