I received from Michela today and WOW, did she blow me away with what she sent! Way beyond what we agreed to but, hey, I'm not complaining. Prepared to be amazed!!
THE STOCKING (I believe it's knit and it's made very well and, oh, so soft)
She said this as one of her signature pieces and this pictures does not do it justice. It's beaded and absolutely stunning! I think it's a poinsetta (I was looking through a post of other flowers Michela has made and came across one that look very similar to this and she said that one was a poinsetta)
3 ornaments - 2 painted blue (the picture doesn't show just how nice they are) and one with penquins all around it (so cute!)
An Amish puzzle ball (I've wanted one of these for a long time)
4 sewn napkins with little snowmen inside mittens
A spider for my Christmas tree (she said her aunt always put a spider on her tree because it was good luck to see one on the tree (I'll have to look this myth up)) I actually got squeemish when I was opening it
More ornaments - the tree is cross stitch and has 2007 in roman numerals
An itty, bitty, teeny, weeny knit sweater and hanger (so adorable)
Supplies to help with my desire to learn origami (she even folded two cranes herself)
6 wonderful hand made Christmas cards (do you actually expect me to give these away??)
2 containers of cookies (see the 1/2 eaten one on the right) - they are so yummy and since they don't contain chocolate, I don't think I will share them with my family but keep them all for myself!
2 fantastic pieces of fabric (now, what should I make with them?)
Whew, I made it through everything - aren't you amazed with this package?? I sure am! Do I feel spoiled, you bet I do!!!
