if this isn’t the mother lode …

I received a parcel from Marie. Feast your eyes!

I cannot even put into words how happy Tim Tams make me. They are so delicious. It is all I can do to keep from just cramming every single one into my mouth AT ONCE. She sent some chewy fudge ones and caramel ones along with the originals. All scrumptious! And hey, the crisps and tea are great, too!
On an unrelated note, Lion Brand is discontinuing Cotton-Ease! It’s a great cotton/acrylic blend that is easy on the pocketbook and a wonderful substitute for many yarns. Get it while you can, people!

    I’m glad the Tim Tams are dulling the Cotton-Ease pain.

    Hi Mariko!
    Have you ever tried to slam a tim tam? (where you bite an end of dunk the other end of the tim tam into a hot drink and suck really hard on the hole you made)that is THE BEST! The new chilli chocolate ones are awesome too!

    I ran to Hancock’s today because I heard they had Cotton-Ease on clearance. When I got there I saw it was Wool-Ease. Sigh.

    what a glorious package!!! i don’t know whether i’d sit on those treasures like a dragon hoarding gold or gobble it up and make myself sick…probably the latter. 🙂

    Wow- Tim tam’s seem to be taking over the world. I had no idea they were so popular around the world, other than with expat Aussies. We regularly have them at work to sweeten otherwise dreary meetings. Dark Chocolate is my favorite variety.
    I’ve always called the “Tim Tam Slam” a “Tim Tam straw”- best if you nibble a small hole on diagonally opposite corners, IMHO.

    Wow these look really good. I must be one of the few people that didn’t know about these before reading your blog. What exactly are they?

    What are they going to introduce to take the place of Cotton-Ease? That’s a nice yarn. I’m surpised it’s not doing well.
