Parcel from Donna!!!!

You can imagine my excitement the other day when I came home to find a parcel from my blogging friend and talented artist, Donna over at Brynwwood Needleworks. Oh my gosh, she is so talented!!! Look at this beautiful hand knit scarf with the beads, knit right in it!!! I can't get the camera up close, these pictures don't do it justice, it is stunning! Donna you are amazing!
Thank you Thank you!!! Such beautiful work!
I have never seen anything like this, the beads are knit right into the scarf, and it feels bouncy and stretchy, so hard to explain, a work of art!
There was more too, a gorgeous Lonaberger jar with a lovely charm and beautiful ribbon!
A fabulous pale robin's egg blue bookmark, I was just wishing for one!!!
There may have been chocolates, oh yes, there was, but not for long, hee hee....
Thank you, Donna, your gifts are incredible and I am so happy!!!

I tried to get up close to show you, the photos look the same but the scarf is soooo beautiful.....
