I got my awesome package from seamshistoric yesterday. It showed up just before I was going out the door for work and I wanted a peek so I don't have pictures of how nicely everything was packaged up, whoops!
First up, senders's choice: Jolly Rancher's! I won't lie, I used scissors to cut the back of the bag open so I could eat them but the package would still look nice for pictures Next is something local: bracelets made by a Native American that she got at the annual Festival of the Hills. These are like friendship bracelets, only so much cooler than anything I ever managed to make. And flexible: Harrisville New England Shetland Wool. I love two-ply shetland. I'm going to have to find a cool project for it.
Next is the letter "C": cute, comfy, and not a cat, with cables! Pattern for the Roma Cardigan!
Something blue: These little stitch markers are just like tiny jewels. Very pretty, and just the right size.
Something unusual: a Christmas ornament (alternately, if I didn't celebrate Christmas, this could be a Joker ball--I must have mentioned how much I enjoyed The Dark Knight). Very cool, is this a temari ball?
And best for last, a big squishy to satisfy my obsession with a certain animal: BAT BAG! This is awesome, I laughed so hard when I opened it up. His red eyes are the buttons holding the bag closed:
Pajama pants action shot:
This guy is full of pockets, too, including a really cool drawstring pouch built right into his body. Your sewing skills boggle my mind, seamshistoric. It's hard to get a picture, but you can at least see the lining here:
Thanks so much, I love everything, especially the bag!
