Yeah, I tend to go a little crazy with the gift giving.  I was just worried that I didn't have enough, hope I didn't do too much.

Oh, I really can't take credit for the beads, I bought those at Joann's!  I don't know how to make those clay beads, or glass ones for that matter.  I do know how to use a pliers and open up earring wire rings!

I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

Me too Cheesy. I just hope my package makes it to the great white north in one piece, and soon! Cheesy

Cuuuute! That is a TON of stuff! I think I am going to crochet my pattern out, it'll be so exciting then! And I won't be able to bum out and leave the project half finished.

I received!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin

So, here's the goods when I opened the box (which smelled HEAVENLY):
(please excuse the horrid, dark cell phone pics, I need to restock on camera goods to take good pics again):

FAB Patterns:


The fatty bobatty ball of magical yarn:


Fabric, a knitted doll, some gorgeous purple fabric, the ribbon the yarn was wrapped in, and a card that says "do not open until after unwinding":


The card(I did manage to wait...amazingly enough):


The adorable doll (it says "please knit quick! I'm nekkid!" - slightly naughty for a work situation...but everyone was in too much awe for nekkidness to be bad):


so then, I went on lunch so I could unwind it.  there's no way I could have the patience to knit that out.  PLUS it's like, 450 yards of yarn waiting to be dyed, and the dye/koolaid was in the ball.  I had to.

After an hour, here's what I have:



GOOD GOD WOMAN

Hehehe...smells so good because there is a hand embriodered lavendar sachet in there.  yummmmmmmy

Close up of some piratey goodness (my box was filled with it!):


She MADE me a needle roll up of skully fabric with roses...it says Meanbean on the felt at the top, that's for needles....I LOVE it!

She also recycled an old necklace that apparently committed hari kari at work last week, and gave me a film canister:


hmmm....oh yes.  Deliciously juicy goodness awaited in that little treasure chest:  This picture can't even come CLOSE to the jewel colors of these glass beads...they're brilliant!



Wow...just wow.  I'm having a bit of anxiety over mine now - rest assured this package is loved, on display and the candy will be shared with the little bean, but only on the most minimal of bases Wink

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
