All the way from Malaysia

I got my package from pen&purl!
sept 064
She sent some Katia bamboo in a pretty blue. I've been wanting to try bamboo yarn! I also got some tea, some guava which were good--very different, had the texture of dried pears but were kind of sweet/salty/spicy--some postcards and a coconut cake candy (which I ate right away), some stickers, a bookmark and a wee little card that she made! The recipe she sent was for the best vegan brownies ever, and I have all but one ingredient at home. I haven't unwrapped the yarn ball yet, but I did pick some buttons and coins (another thing I collect) out of it! Thanks so much!

Neat stuff! And what a good idea to include postcards from the place where you live. I should have thought of that!

Thanks for sharing the first package! Looks like you got some great stuff. You should make the brownies and tell us how they are!

Wow, I can't help but be a bit envious... I'm half indigenous Malaysian and that would have been so cool. I didn't know there were international swappers!

B! Thanks for posting my package. :D I haven't checked the site for a while, so was surprised to see that it was the first package up. I did send it pretty early as was paranoid about the international postage... Anyway, really glad you liked it all. :D
