I could barely contain my desire to say that we bought the same brand of yarn until you got it!  Oh, so ironic and exciting!

I recieved a HUGE yarn ball yesterday, but I couldn't post because of all the Craftster upgrades.

Anyway, I just have to say that Miss SewPixie really spoiled me! 
She sent me a pattern booklet, a "learn to crochet" book that has some GREAT illustrations for lefties, plus her own directions for a flower. Not to mention the HUGE yarn ball!!
see:



and a close up of the ball:



I'll be back sometime with pictures of everything inside.  I'm dying to know what's in there!!

 Grin So happy that it arrived. It looked cuter before the white yarn was put on there but I had made one more thing and didn't want to unwind toooo far to rewinrd to get it in there.

So the white yarn is hiding the actual yarn so that's a surprise as well?  Genius!  And I might have to steal that idea! Cheesy

Get ready to drool, chickies. I was so excited, I unraveled it as soon as I got it. As you can see, I was beyond spoiled by Neliamne. Thank you so much, Miss Jenn.



This is how the yarn ball arrived. ~magical~ Sir Davey, my puppish, is checking it out.



All of the bounty. Glorious, isn't it?



Most of the handmade items: an adorable felted flower, lovely beaded stitch markers, and some gorgeous earrings (in red & black!!)



Some store-bought goodness: A dream sheep (the package's funny translation made my heart happy), a Rikku figurine (<3), an adorable notepad (it says 'cinnamoroll') and the magnets she made me.



Another shot of all the fun.

**not pictured well: the Hi-Chew candy, the embroidery floss, the actual yarn (black, white and gray trellis yarn for a scarf),  buttons, and another cute notepad with koi fish.


Dear Jenn, you're my friend and thanks for all the adorableness!
