So Craftster photo hosting is seriously trying to give me a headache, but I shall overcome because I must share the wealth that is my package from Miss Barbara!
I will try not to overwhelm you with photos, but there is a LOT of goodies to show off!
And so, in no particular order:
"M" is for mug rug and mug cozy. A perfect fit on my new University of Minnesota mug!
Hard- a huge assortment of buttons and squished pennies (which I collect!) from the American Museum of Natural History and Hershey Park. Little does my partner know I grew up in New Jersey and have fond memories of both of these spots!
Green- arm warmers AND leg warmers! Love the stripes!
Sender's choice- some lovely purple cotton yarn (so soft!) and some deep purpley-blue roving in case I ever get brave enough to try spinning again. The color is gorgeous! Miss Barbara, do you know what the fiber is?
AND... Crafster Photo Hosting has given my 4 copies of each of those pictures... and eaten the other categories I've tried to upload. Grr.... I'll give you the description now and try again later...
Local- postcards from Long Island, and shells from her favorite beach- how sweet!
Recycled- A yarn holder contraption made out of a soda bottle--really original! A Mesa bag from recycled yarn (this might be "M" too)--I will need to get these photos up because you will not believe the amazing detail and hard work that Miss Barbara put into this.
Dotted- a cute orange drawstring pouch lined with fun dotted fabric. Plus some extra drawstring fabric with cherries--I don't think Miss Barbara knows it's one of my favorite prints!
Then there were a LOAD of extras! Peppermint tea (yum!) fabrics, jewelry makings, ribbon, and even a bit of sweets
Miss Barbara is so thoughtful, she even included a hand-drawn monster from her daughter
This is an amazing package! Miss Barbara really put a lot of thought into it! THANK YOU!!
Oh, and this was too funny... I was hoping for armwarmers because the only pair I have were the first thing I ever knit and are definitely sporting some holes, loops, and other funky spots. I didn't tell Miss Barbara about them, but look at this:
What are the chances? I'm not even a Slytherin!
