Some unexpected teatime gifts!

Last week a package arrived in my mailbox and I was puzzled. I didn't immediately recognize the name of the sender,and I hadn't won anything on eBay lately so I knew that wasn't it. Then, I opened the package and learned that Christine, who won one of my Valentine's Week giveaways, had sent me a gift of some tea-themed goodies she had made, and I immediately pulled out an old faithful teapot for a little fashion show!

There was a lovely crocheted tea cozy made with a pretty variegated yarn. I have used some of this exact same yarn before since I like the colors so much!

And there were also two tea-themed knit dishcloths, including this one featuring a teacup. I was so touched at receiving such a thoughtful surprise. As someone who loves to *give* handmade gifts, it was sure fun to *receive* some handmade gifts!
