Superhooker, I did notice. I actually have the same blue yarn you used too, but I didn't want to send half a ball. I'm so glad everything works for you!!

Superhooker also sent me an amazing package. I teared up a bit because I'm taking a swap break for five months to focus on wedding crafting, and the break couldn't have started on a better note. But do let me apologize for the terrible pictures. I will try to get better ones if superhooker doesn't post some.

Here you can see coffee (there was also coffee candy, but I took it to work), four large bars of soap, five mini soaps, a pincushion, beaded stitch markers and a beaded bracelet. There was also nag champra and peach lotions. Only one is pictures, because the other went right to my purse. The bracelet is awesome, and just what I wanted for summer.



Next up D.I.Y. (off my wists!!!), a mixed paper journal and pens. You really can't see them so well, but she also made me green and blue striped armwarmers and a green earwarmer with silver buttons. I loooove winter accessories, no matter what the time of year. And it was really great to finally get a mixed paper journal because i've wisted like five.


But the hands-down best part of all? A blanket for my new puppy! She's been chewing on the afghans our grandmothers made for us, and now she has her own. She loves it.


Thank you, a BILLION times. I love everything.

Heres what the boy got.

A pillow, bag for his golf tees, and a keychain.

I'm so glad you guys like the package! I had my usual swap anxiety, but as Eric pointed out, I always worry, and then it turns out great. And thank you for posting pics, especially of the glasses. Those were my fave and I just couldn't get a good shot.

I got an AWESOME box yesterday from larry! I can;t even believe how much stuff she crammed into one box!


Tons of threads, buttons, and a little sewn pouch. And the best part of the whole package, soap making stuff! Two kinds of soap, small fruit molds, a loaf mold, dye, scent and two additives. Amazing!


Ric racs, ribbons, zippers, trims, funky yarn, oh my!

Fabric, iron ons, a cd, two mini notebooks, papers and stickers for book altering and two awesome Asian cross-stitch kits. I haven't done cross stitch in sooo long, I think it's time to start up again. Thank you again and again Larry! I will be thinking of you when I make awesome soaps.

I sadly don't have a closeup because I rarely, if ever, think ahead. And now it lives in Arizona with my mom. It's really easy though. Here's a breakdown of how it's done, and hopefully one of you can give it a whirl.
Row 1; Chain as long as you want.
Row 2 and 3; Single crochets.
Row 4; THis is where it gets interesting. You start each row from the same end, instead of working back and forth. On this row, you make 5 sc. Then you make a dc, but you connect it to the front of the stitch 2 rows down. Then you repeat that the whole way across.
Row 5; Ss in the first stitch, then dc as before, in the stitch 2 rows down. 5 sc. Then dc as before.

Pretty much, the rows repeat in that manner. The dc you drop down 2 rows makes a really cool, ladder effect on one side and ripples on the other. I hope that kindof clears it up. And if my mom ever gets a digital camera, I'll post details. If anyone has questions, please let me know. I would love to see more of these out in the world.

Oh, I got a great suprise yesterday. My package came from rynbow. She picked beads for my wedding jewelry, and boy, did she deliver. Three packs of beads in spot-on colors and silver wire to attach them to the hair comb. And then she also threw in doodling tools and lucky stars for my reception table decorations! I am one lucky lady, thank you rynbow!

I really isn't a complete disaster. Everyone who sews makes more then one thing they don't like. Personally, I love the fabric. Keep it up. You will get a lot better and make stuff you love.
