I have one thing to post that is not a hat or a blanket.  Roll Eyes Cheesy  Here goes:

Sides of the box:




Inside of box...it's painted a deep turquoise, but the photo washed it out:


The 3-D items on the box were made using Modge-Podge melts and a silicone mould, then painting them and E-6000ing them to the box.

I also made a blanket for a nursing/Veteran's home:

The pattern was satisfying to make b/c there were many different types of stitches used, and it really came out pretty, I think:


I used Lion Brand yarn, in the pound size to make this blanket.  It is softer than any of the other pound yarns, I think, maybe even more so than the baby yarns.

I'll be starting today on a new blanket!  Wink

OMG, that kitty is SO cute!  Cheesy

Here's the last of the hats, thank goodness:


I'm moving onto blankets for people in the Veteran's nursing homes now...

Three more hats for preschool aged children!  I love making these, they only take about two hours to make!

I received TWO teriffic ATCs from OathKeeper yesterday!  

Here goes the first one:

Not only is it a subject close to my heart, but I love the quote, and she incorporated rainbow colors (which I know are symbolic of this subject)-but one of my favorite things are rainbows!  Cheesy

Here's the second one:
Outside of ATC...

This card incorporates stickers, which is another thing I love, ladybugs(!), and a cute little something the ladybug said.  
Here's the inside of the ATC...

It's another set of subjects near and dear to my heart-my birthday and my 'Craftster Family'!  Grin

Thanks, OathKeeper!

I received from Averia today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm SOOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked  Here goes:


That is the front of the pocketbook.


LOOK at the little bumblebees!  Shocked


Back of the pocketbook.


Inside pocket which is big and open, and smaller pocket with zipper.


Goodies inside the pocketbook!


Closed wallet.


Open wallet with a lucky penny in it!  Cheesy


More awesome goodies that were inside the pocketbook!


An orange and white hexie headband that I pinned from one Averia made in another swap!


Another of Averia's creations that I had pinned!  Grin

Everything was wrapped in orange and yellow tissue paper and it was like a sunny summer's day when I opened the package!  I was more and more amazed with each item I took out of the box!  There is a fabric she used in some of the items that looks like honeycomb (to go along with my love of bees)!  Everything is perfect!

THANK YOU SO MUCH, AVERIA!!!!!

OathKeeper, the ATC I sent you was supposed to look like the sharpie/rubbing alcohol project you had pinned.  I hope you like it.

I received an ATC today from blupaisan, in my FOREST theme....



blu's artistic ability literally leaves me breathless!  This card is PERFECT!  I could stare at it for hours, looking at all the little details she included!

Thanks, blu!

I got so many great photos for the album yesterday on our trip to the city!  Giles and Baranoff met a new friend while in the city and wanted to take a photo with him...

The new friends tag says:  "Pugs and Kisses"!  Grin

Someone poked me and pointed out that I was not posting my completed projects in the discussion thread, so no one was seeing them!  ( :'(I thought I was just being ignored!)

So here they are:
