A Theme Has Formed

The Royal Mail pouch is getting slimmer by the day! I can't believe this is the fourth gift I've opened from Tanya a/k/a Goddess Jasmine. However, when I pulled it out of the pouch, I couldn't believe how fragrant it was.

This would be the hand-made portion of my swap package. Tanya has made a little soap sack (the ribbon is a nice touch), and inside is this most beautiful soap:

Not only is the color divine (love that orange theme), but it smells so good!

Additionally, I received some stitch markers. Clearly Tanya knows how much I love my beastly kitty George Bailey:

I didn't take them out of their little red pouch because you can still see them perfectly, and the red is a nice touch. I wonder if she made them?

Once can never have enough pretty stitch markers, so I'm thrilled with these.

Keeping count and keeping fragrantly clean. I'll take it.

Check back tomorrow to see what other goodies Tanya put into the Royal Mail pouch.


  1. How fun to receive such wonderful things in the mail.

  2. Hello!

    I made the soap sack, it is 100% cotton so you can lather up the soap inside it and use it to wash with. My sister made the soap, it does indeed smell lovely and I'm pleased you like it. I did make the stitch markers too, I'd wanted to add more to them, but with my fingers wrapped up (I'd trapped them in a door at work) I was struggling too much. :( I'm glad you like them though. :)

    1. Oh, that soap is fabulous. Thank you sister for me! I'm also doubly impressed that you made the stitch markers with a bum hand. Very, very much appreciated.

  3. I shall thank her indeed. I'm impressed that I managed to get everything wrapped, it was my right hand that I hurt and the sellotape kept sticking to my dressing, it was like a slapstick comedy in my house that afternoon... :D

  4. More lovely things - and so nice :-)

  5. Oooh, handmade soap in a special bag and handmade stitch markers - lucky you! I'm loving the orange theme too ;)
