oook, lots of pics ahead, beware! This is the package I received last week from Rantyhippie:
First off, a lovely little cross stitch that I plan to hang on my wall:
Then there were three dish scrubbies (which work great, I've already used them!) and a knit washcloth (so soft!). Kitty is inspecting:
Here she included some fabric, batting, and instructions on how to assemble a baked potato bag, which is perfect because I hate having to use lots of paper towels and/or plastic when I'm cooking. Also, isn't that potato fabric adorable? I haven't had time to make it yet, but this will be a perfect way to practice my quilting (which I haven't ever done before but will need to when I finish my quilts)
A tie-dye fabric crochet holder, which I have already put all of my crochet hooks in. I have a designated drawer for them in my crafting space and they STILL manage to get lost, so hopefully this will prevent that from happening!
All rolled up with my hooks in it:
And I asked for tea/dish towels, so here she sent several towels that she added some very pretty crochet edging to on the ends. I hope you can see the towels ok, this is kind of a bad picture:
But I did get a close-up of the crocheting:
And finally some extra towels, which I've already started using, but I think I may steal her crochet idea and embellish them this way or with embroidery I've been wanting to practice my embroidery skills on some kitchen linens lately.
Thank you so much for everything, Rantyhippie! Everything in the package was perfect, and I've already put most of it to good use by now. I love it so much!
