Ode to an Orange Buttercat.

My Vegan Pal 2 Swap package arrived! Thanks to one terribly generous and thoughtful Orange Buttercat. Check it out!


There's some beautiful soft Cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas (I've been dying to try this for so long!) - two skein's worth!


One of which was wound into a magic yarn ball. I couldn't resist unravelling it to see what goodies it held - a row counter, cute pin cushion (both green - this girl really pays attention!), a cat magnet (that just so happens to look a lot like our Roger), some 'soak' liquid detergent and a sewing kit, all tied up with a cute autmnal ribbon. As if that wasn't enough there's also a book (Margaret Atwood, who I've just started reading!):

And some absolutely divine pumpkin hand cream and a gorgeously scented soap. Love it!


And snacks! Fruit crisps - pineapple, strawberry and banana flavoured. As you can see from the first picture above these didn't last very long! Also included was a recipe for vegetable soup (which is perfect for me as despite the hot and humid temperatures I can't seem to get enough of soups at the moment - pumpkin, mushroom, lentil, you name it - whatever we have on hand soon finds its way into a soup of some description). And, to top it all off a very cute wee card with a note from the Buttercat herself.

Thanks so much Buttercat! You've made my week!
