Gifties and A Challenge From SP9


Well, here you see the Great Gobs of Gorgeous Generosity from my SP9. First, she arranged for Shelby to send these cool stitch markers and nice handmade card. Notice the markers match the aforementioned Cha-Cha yarn! Shelby is not only our SP9 hostess, but a talented craftista. I had actually seen these very markers on Shelby's blog, but had no idea I would own them! Wow!

Today, I got a "parize," as Amelia would say. Just look at all the Secret Pal goodness that came my way: 3 books (I am assuming these are for Amelia and one has a tape) and bath fizzies, 3 kinds of tea, 3 skeins of yarn (2 cotton and some really unusual sock yarn in colorway Monster Mash), a knit gauge, a pretty sequined blank book and a very nice postcard. It seems my SP is from British Columbia. I must insert that I LOVE Canada! One of the teas is very interesting. It is called Swamp Tea and is supposedly a Native American tea that looks very earthy.

Clever and elusive SP said maybe I could guess her identity and job from "clues" in this package. Hmmmm.... from the postcard and all the contents I am thinking she does something in the way of conservation or hunting monsters in swamps while wearing cotton. Beats me. Later, I'll probably say, "Oh! Of course!" So, am I on the right track, SP?


Thanks for all the cool goodies, and especially for the neat neat books for Amelia. They look totally appropriate for her, and she loves books.

YAY! You got it. I was hoping it would arrive soon.

Da*n it!
I am a conservationist. I hunt Sasquatch and you know, when in swamps, breathable fabric is so important. Cotton all the way!

I hadn't noticed how many things I had sent in 3's. Interesting.

So, you love Canada eh? Well, honestly - who doesn't?! (Kidding)
I am so glad Amelia loves books - a child after my own heart.

Keep guessing.

Well, SP, I just saw a blog with a large snow sculpture of a male body part on it. Is that yours? (You might not even admit to that....)

Interesting. What kind of blogs are you searching missy?
Are you asking me if it is my blog or my large male body part made of snow?
Sadly, I have to answer: No.

To both, that is.

OK, here's my second guess: Are you Tanya?
