* While I was away

Esto ha sido lo que ha pasado mientras tanto: ¡recibí mi paquete del intercambio!
This is what happened in the meantime: I received the parcel from my swap partner!

Swap goodies
Mesmerized :-D

¿Adivinad quién? Pues era Devina, de The Fairy Glade. Dos ovillos de algodón en colores naturales, el ángel navideño más cuco del mundo, una postal y un broche en forma de flor marrón clarito. Tengo la sensación de que me ha tocado el gordo. ¡Muchísimas gracias, Dev! No sabías nada de esto, pero precisamente necesitaba un broche como el tuyo para un jersey que me ha tejido mi madre.

Guess who? She was Devina from The Fairy Glade. Two skeins of cotton yarn in natural colours, the cutest Christmas Angel ever, a postcard and a light brown flower brooch. I feel like I've hit the jackpot! Thank you so much, Dev! You had no idea about this but your brooch was exactly what I needed for a jersey my mother has knitted for me.

Christmas Angel
Thinking of a name for her

Me temo que esto me convierte en la absoluta ganadora de este intercambio y sé que en estos momentos me tenéis mucha envidia, porque no hay nada que supere esta monada hecha a mano. ¡Es broma! ;-) Además, podéis conseguir vuestro propio angelito (son únicos) o broche de flor en su tienda a un precio realmente asequible.

I'm afraid I am the absolut lucky winner of this swap and I know all of you are envious of me right now because nothing can beat this handsewn cutie. Just kidding! ;-) You too can get your own ooak angel or flower brooch at her shop at a very affordable price.

Y no sólo esto, sino que también llegó un pedido que le hice a CT y, sorpresa, me envió un estuche para los ganchillos de regalo que me viene que ni pintado ¡y en mis colores preferidos! Me ha dicho que éste es el prototipo de modo que supongo que pronto habrá más disponibles. Muchas gracias, Citlali. :-D

Not only that, I also received an order I purchased from CT, and she sent a hook case as a gift that comes in handy. What a surprise! In my favourite colours! She said this is just a prototype so I think soon there will be more of them available. Thank you very much, Citlali. :-D

Hook case
My hooks now feel at home

¿Sabéis qué? Me parece que voy a tener que salir de viaje más a menudo... ;-)
You know, I think I should go on trips more often... ;-)
