The Cat's Out of the Bag!

My SP07 is Sarah of Curiosity Corseted the Cat!!

I came home and found package on my doorstep! I tried to open the package carefully and photo each gift as I unwrapped them but I couldn't hold back and ripped everything open like a 5-year old kid.

So many gifts they don't fit in one photo!! But inside I unwrapped 2 clear plastic notions bags, Hello Kitty note cards, yummy treats to eat for both knitty and kitty, an adorable darning mushroom, cute kitty magnets, Hello Kitty Holiday notecards, a lovely scented glycerin soap, a MONKEY fizzy bath cupcake, a recipe booklet from Northumbria, and 2 skeins of GORGEOUS Rowan Tapestry yarn and, my favorite of all, Sarah made me a stuffie!!

What could be better for soothing those achy muscles than a good soak in the tub with a Cheeky Chimp Cherry Cupcake bath fizzie?

Northumbria is located in the North East of England--lot's of castles and history and some tasty sounding recipes!

By the time this blog was updated, the Galaxy bar and Butter Fudge had been nibbled into, yum!

I was spared the jar of Marmite, but everyone's favorite knitted terrorist, Glittrgirl, suggested Sarah send me this (and I'll have a tall glass of milk on standby in case this sets my mouth on fire!)

The Gansta Kitties attack the treats!
So I joined the Rowan Club this year and on Thursday night, I was at Knit Club admiring Left Coast Knitter's Rowan No. 39 magazine and wondering when my first magazine would arrive.

On Friday night I received my first Rowan Magazine (No.40) and fell asleep dreaming of all things Rowan yarns. On Saturday, I get 2 balls of a luscious brand new Rowan yarn, Tapestry in a black and grey colourway!! It's 70% wool, 30% soy protein and feels so soft.

And I had to save the Best for last. Sarah made me a stuffie! I let out the biggest "Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww" when I unwrapped this kitty. I've named her Poppy, after Sarah's cat. She's made out of Debbie Bliss Maya and has green Noro Cash Iroha eyes.

Mika couldn't stay away and started snuggling with the stuffie!

Here, she hugs Poppy.

Poppy has a pink heart. I love her!

Thank you Sarah! You've been a fabulous SP and I've just loved all the wonderful and thoughtful and fun gifts and cards and e-cards that you've sent over the past 3 months!

(I'm off to read your blog and figure out why you were in Houston!)

What is that Bombay thing?

Glad you enjoyed the package, I've had a lot of fun putting these together. Your stuffie is the third one I ended up making as the original was claimed by my youngest daughter, and then the elder one wanted one too, but I think this one was my favourite. I'm so pleased you named her Poppy.

The Bombay Bad Boy is a curry flavoured Pot Noodle, sort of like Ramen noodles but the flavouring and veggies are already mixed in. All you do is add hot water. This particular one has a bit of a kick to it.
