Surprise Package

I came home last night to find this box on my table.  Hmmm....I don't remember ordering anything.  Even hubby was saying, "what did you order this time?" Even more of a mystery is that is was from Joann's.  I know I didn't order anything from them - I usually just go to the store.
What could it be?  Who sent it?  Did I win something?
Ta da!  Remember last week when I showed you how to wind your own yarn using a stick?  I had also mentioned how I wish I had a winder, but it was a frivolous purchase that would have to wait. I set it up as quick as I could.
It was so easy.  Then I just threaded the yarn.
With a turn of the handle, I was winding yarn!
Look at that!
Here's another one I did.  The one on the right I did by hand.  Looks good, but I tend to pull my yarn too tight when I wind and that stretches the yarn.  With the winder, that doesn't happen.
It didn't take long for me to knock out three wound balls.  Look how nice these stack!  Easy to store, too.
How did I score this?  My mom saw my post and I guess decided I needed this.  Isn't that wonderful?  Guess I'm still your Favorite Little Princess.  Thanks mom, I love it!
