The End of Secret Pal 7

Here are the goodies from my last secret pal parcel sent to me my my spoiler who has been revealed as Silvia. The strange thing is I think I have visited her blog on a few occasions over the last few months without realising she is my pal! Spooky.
In the parcel we have: a card, a sheep, two skeins of sari silk with two candles, a sheep magnet, a chocolate-orange candle (which smells divine), a yellow "Happy Easter" bird and lastly a gardening kit made up of a notebook, some soap and some gloves.

Here is a close up of the sari silk... and Silvia the smell has nearly gone! What to make with this? Who knows yet!

I am hoping we manage to keep in touch, I will certainly be adding her blog to my blogroll and to bloglines. I think it is a little strange to have lots of emails and conversations with someone when you have no idea who they are... Iguess that is why I haven't been bombarding her with emails! Hope you weren't too disappointed. I think I will be signing up for the next one, as I have really enjoyed choosing presents to send and also receiving so many lovely goodies. Thanks again Silvia.
I thought I would give you a little update on the sock, here it is "beautifully" displayed on my foot. Not sure the yarn shows off the pattern to the best effect. What do you think, should I frog and turn into a Jaywalker instead? So many decisions.

I've got some of that sari silk - it's lush isn't it? I haven't made anything with mine yet but I get it out and stroke it occasionally :D

Love, love, love everything in it! Youngest has already eaten her chocolate! Thank you so much and I am glad to see that you have been spoiled well too!
