Packet from Lori

Last week I was the happy receiver of a packet with goodies from my new friend Lori in the USA. We met through Ravelry in December and have got a nice friendship since then. She had felted me a lovely pair of purple slippers, very warm. I also got Opal yarn, pens, a CD, a notepad tic tac, gum and lots of chocolate (all is gone by now). Thanks a lot sweet Lori. I loved it all.
