No Money Miracle

Time for another SP swap.

This one's premise was to spend no money while spoiling your SP crazy with things you made and some yarn too. Boy Oh Boy! Was I spoiled crazy!
There is a jar of Peppermint Oatmeal Milk bath. That muslin cover is also the tea bag to keep the herbs and oatmeal from messing up the tub. It's brilliant. The scent is uplifting and refreshing.

There is a wool wrapped bar of soap which is such a gentle way of scrubbing garden dirt off my hands. It also looks good and smells good and the Olive Oil soap is good for the skin. It's been a few years since my last wool wrapped soap so I was very pleased to get this one.

Next to that is 3 felt ball suitable for juggling, if I could juggle or get them away from my pets. I loved the little note that showed how I could massage my back with them against the wall. Sorry I didn't get a photo of that. It was so cute and maybe just a little silly. That is, until I tried it. It really works! It's the exact opposite of silly, it's amazing! Some tight pain in my lower back and between my shoulder blades just relaxed away. I'm now a believer in felt ball back massages.

The yarn is a stunning hand spun Polworth wool in my favorite purple color. My SP did an amazing job with picking colors for me. It's like she took a peak in my stash to see exactly what I like. The baggie is some fantastic spinning fiber 60% Romney 40% Clun Forest.

There is a stack of recipes I can't wait to try, but Tomato Soup Cake? Is that really food? I might need some handholding to try that one. Not so with the Hot Cheese Hors d'Oevers. I'm thinking about not even waiting for a party and baking up a whole batch just for me.

It didn't make it into the group shot but there was also a cat toy.

Sumi-e loves it.
really loves it.
Joey had his own good time shredding the paper.
Such a nice party in a box.

Uh that looks so nice. do you think it would be just as good if I made a package for myself? Maybe I could fall in love al over again with some of my yarn..?
