Here's my package from Vanessa_Nichole - I was very spoilt!!
A hand-embroidered calico bag which contained the yarn ball:
Here's the yarn ball, a couple of extra goodies and a post card:
The pattern is KnitPicks cathedral purse, and the yarn is Debbie Bliss Andes, an alpaca/silk blend in a beautiful purple - it is so soft - I love it! In the photo: 3 buttons, 2 sets of labels ('handmade by _____' and 'made with love by ______'), a yarn needle, gorgeous embroidery scissors, and 2 sets of mandmade beaded stitch markers:
A close up of one of each of the stitch markers (they are so cute ):
Then, after I'd unwrapped the rest, a set of needle protectors for dpns, a purse by vanessa (it's really lovely fabric, with satin lining in a rich yellow), a set of wooden dpns (falling out of the photo), coffee, Amaretto hot chocolate, tissues, a little tin with a mini sewing set and a mini-iron:
The tin has the Opera House on it, which is very cool cause I grew up in Sydney and I couldn't take a picture of the mini sewing set inside cause my camera couldn't focus, it was so small.
The iron was a bit hard to see, so here is another pic - see how tiny it is!
Thanks so much vanessa_nichole - everything is so great. I wish my photos were better and did it all justice!
