Yesterday, I received my Christmas gift :)

Hello lovelies,

Yesterday, I received a parcel from a wonderful lady. I met this lady through this blog. She left here a comment and coincidentally she was from my little country from Lebanon…and she lives here too :) So she send me some of the most beautiful yarn I’ve ever seen that she brought from Peru…I was like a child in front of his first gift when I saw the box and when I opened it I couldn’t express the huge joy I felt….the people in the post thought I was a crazy woman :) hehehe

So, enough talking…Let’s see what Joumana sent…

Let me show you :)


First, I discovered these so cute little baby boots for Joe that Joumana made from felt…Lucky little Joseph…

and then 8 alpaca yarn with beautiful colors…this yarn is soooo soft … simply delicious!

and 11 of the most wonderful alpaca-acrylic yarn with amazing colors…

Joumana, you are one of the kindest and most generous woman I’ve ever met and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I really feel that I’ve received my Christmas gift this year and that I am sooo lucky :)

And now the big question is: what will I crochet with this treasure? Any suggestions ladies?

Big kisses

    Wow! What a lovely gift…and such a generous lady… there are still many good people in the world :) The colours are stunning aren’t they? I think you should make something for yourself this time…. a beautiful shawl maybe? Enjoy your yarn! Hugs, Jill x

    De très belles laines, bien douces ! J’imagine quelque chose de délicat comme un châle ou une étole pour toi…

  4. Eveline says:

    Wow! Lucky you! Maybe make one of your fab baby-vests, ore legwarmers for your girls, a winter-warm snuggle loop or scarf, a nice hat….

    Tu as été très gâtée, c’est magnifique ! Peut-être un beau châle pour toi ?

    What a wonderful gift. Perhaps you should make something for yourself – Merry Christmas

    Magnifique cadeau, que l’on a un peu l’impression de recevoir toutes par la magie du net. Des petits chaussons à croquer et de la laine…il n’y a que nous pour savoir à quel point la douceur, la couleur d’un simple fil peut ouvrir sur un monde de rêve et de création. Alors merci à cette amie de nous avoir aussi fait très plaisir. Plus qu’un châle j’imaginerais bien un gilet court, sans manche, un peu comme ceux que l’on aimait se faire dans les années soixante-dix parce que tu pourrais le porter tout le temps et sur tout. Et en tricot jaquard ?

  22. Natalie says:

    Does Joumana want to marry you? The yarn is quite expensive! ;-)

    I think you should make something for yourself, maybe vest, a shawl or a skirt?

    @ Joumana: If you’d like to make more people happy, please feel free to contact me. – No, just kidding…

    xxx, Natalie

  29. Andrea says:

    You deserve it! What a wonderful surprise. May I suggest legwarmers for your girls, a scarf with a braid for your hubby, a sweater for your little boy and a broomstich-lace scarf for you.
    Can’t wait to see what you make.
    On another note: I’ve been making reindeers. Such fun ornament. Guess I’ll have to start my own blog to post the pattern ; )

    What an exciting present – alpacas are sooo cute that the idea of having something made from their wool is lovely. I think I would make a blanket so that I could wrap myself in the softness and could use all the pretty colours together. xxx
