When I got home from holidays my 4th (reveal) pacakge was waiting in my mail box.  Wow, was I totally wrong on who I thought was crafting for me.  I was soooooooo sure of who it was I almost started crafting her thank you gift but then decided, just to be sure, I better wait and now I'm glad I did.

So, here's a recap:

Package #1:

Package #2:

Package #3

Package #4

A book and bookmark, licorice, note pad and bath bomb!

And..............drum roll, please..........

My secret FOC was RAIN!

Thanks, Rain for everything - I appreciate all that you sent.

Yesterday I received 4 wonderful, bright crochet squares from Obsessed.

The picture doesn't do them justice - they are much brighter in 'real life.'

Thanks! Obsessed, they are a great addition to my afghan.

I received my 3rd package from my secret FOC today.  A pretty journal!

Love the color!  Thanks so much!

Just to let you know that I will be on holidays from the 7th - 17th so don't panic if you don't hear about the last package arriving.  If it's here when I get back, I will let you know asap  Smiley

I'm finally getting to post pictures of the items lasandri sent me for this swap - sorry it took so long  Grin

This is a knit dishcloth and it has a tulip stitched into it (which is one of my seasonal themes in my kitchen)


a beautiful crochet square for my ongoing afghan (it looks much better in real life).  It's made up of 9 smaller squares and Lasandri said it's the first square she's made and I think it's great!

THANKS for both items!

My hubby collects hot sauces and it's pretty hard to find them up here in Canada so for this swap I thought I would see if anyone would help me collect some for him.  Tofuttibreak, way down in Texas, picked that wish and they made it undamaged.

When I was opening the package, he happened to walk into the kitchen and asked what I was doing.  I told him it was stuff from a craft swap and it was actually something for him.  He gave me this strange look but as soon as I started unrolling one of the bottles, I think he figured out what it might be.

The first one I opened was a clear liquid with chili peppers and garlic floating in it and to say he was thrilled would be an understatement.  Then I opened 2 more!  He was so pleased and couldn't believe that I had done that for him.  So, enough rambling - here's the picture:

THANKS tofuttibreak for helping me make my hubby happy!

4 days ago I went to the mail box and there was a big, puffy package in it from my secret FOC.  I took the package home, opened it, turned it over, gave it a little shake and out popped 2 items.  The first was this:

a beautiful tote bag (I love the colors).  The second was a little purple knit hat - hmmmmmm, I wondered, why in the world would she/he send me this (it's a little small for my sons  Grin )  Then I decided I should find out what the bulge was that was still in the bag.  Well, I quickly found out who the little hat was for:

The worlds best knit snowman ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He's so adorable and cuddly and I can't wait until I can display him with all my winter stuff - he's certainly going to be a great addition.

THANK YOU so much secret FOC for this FANTASTIC package!

I went to pick out my colors for this month's block and told myself NO PINK OR GREEN!!!!!!!!!  Then I found two colors I thought would go well together and came up with this (yes, that's lime green you see - I don't listen to myself very good):

I then decided to lay out all my squares to see what the quilt was going to look like - that's when I realized that I had been using rather muted colors and if I didn't use some bolder colors the rest of the year, August was going to stand out a lot  Grin

Correctionowife chose me for a wish list surprise and ever since she made that choice, I've been anxious to see what she was going to make.  Well, yesterday, my surprise arrived and was it worth waiting for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had put down that I wanted a cross stitch with a scarecrow theme - and look what I got:

You can't tell from the picture but it's quite large and the amount of work is amazing.  THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  my fall theme has just gotten a major improvement  Grin

I received a mixed paper journal from Melesse yesterday.  It's wonderful!  I wasn't really sure what this item was when I added it to my wish list but since so many others had it on theirs, I thought it must be something good.  Well, I now know what it is and I know I'm going to want more.

Here's a picture of the front (I wasn't sure how to get pictures of the inside pages)

Thanks Melesse!!!
