Package From Japan (How did she know about my secret fetish?)





I just had to post these pictures of a package that was sent to me by fleegle from Japan for everyone else to enjoy. How did she know I have a fetish for bags of all kinds and for needlework stuff? Not to mention how much I love getting packages in the mail. I guess that qualifies as a fetish all on it's own. Packages in the mail so often are just utilitarian stuff I or my sister have purchased, yet I still feel like I'm getting a gift. So nice that this time the box actually is a gift! The cat bag and rabbit bag will be perfect for those silk roving's I have small amounts of and the fish coin-purse-fob is now attached to the inside of my purse with emergency money in it. The green/frog tin box is for pencils but I think I will put my stitch markers and cable needles in there. It's multi level and so has tons of uses. The shell/frog pin cushion will be great for my silk ribbon embroidery needles when I make small projects and I am saving the plastic "ring markers" for a special project. The frog bag now holds my tape measure collection and the little purse/tapestry needle hanging thing is on my office cork board along with the card. The little sample of yarn and the ring markers were sent to me earlier but I have not had a chance to swatch with it yet. I love everything! Thank You Susan!

I am not sure of the reason, but all knitters have a container fetish. I just knew that you would need little bags, just like me. And I know you love green, sooooooo, it was easy to pick things. And I had such fun doing it. If you love the stitch markers, I will send you more bags when I come back next April.

How fun to get stuff in the mail! A tape measure collection? I thought I was bad!

Dear fleegle,

Just call me Kermit! I think the container thing may just be genetic since my niece, Jessica, has saved boxes and gift containers since she was a young child. I am going to try the stitch markers out when I start the Dragone shawl :-) I love good stitch markers! Thank You again for all the wonderful,funny,thoughtful gifts!

Dear Opal,

I do love little bags and containers and these are darling as well as functional. I have to keep them away from my niece though or she will covet them!

Dear littleberry,

They really love the "cute" down there. When I go into Japan Town in San Francisco (it's a small one) you can really see that everything there has to appeal to the eye or it just does not cut it. I just love the animals on everything and if you squeeze the little fish coin purse just right, his little mouth moves and he can lip-sync to show tunes!

Dear laritza,

I know it's lame but everyone keeps giving me tape measures with animals and stuff on them. I have no idea why but they are kind of cute! Anyway, Mr. Frog Bag thinks they are very tasty!
