I had a package waiting for me when I got back yesterday!
Rratstarr really sent me some amazing things... and I am just tickled!  They boys are thrilled as well - they especially love things that they get from the mail box!

Here is the shopping list.. and I still can't believe she got all this with only $5.19!!

Okay..
black & white fabrid 1 yd from a store called Building 19 - $1
brown fabric - Joann .62
6" rib knit Joann .33
fabric paints - $1
vase - .25 from a yard sale - this baby still has the sticker on the bottom of it!
salvaged from work...
paper.. thumbtack....chipboard from the back of a desk calendar - she went trash can diving for me on that one  Cheesy
big clips/clasps from seacoast bargains... .50
small clips/clasps from the same place... .25
smiley face stickers (not shown in pic - they were already stolen by Collin my sticker hound! - free from junkmail (why don't I get that kind of junk mail??!!)
thread  $1.29

total - $5.19!!!

PIcs... not sure why the one of Collin came out so dark but it fits like she had him modeling it!



okay... the vase is so pretty - it is that crinkly look..
and the clasps?  she made me a bookbinding kit!!
She also included the extra fabric which I will definitely be putting to use.
Logan has already told me he is sleeping in his shirt tonight!  How cute is that?
She painted a rocket on the front of his and a stegosaurus on the front of Collin's.

I wish my pictures did her package justice - it is really fantastic!


OOOh and I wish we had a Joann's - you guys have been getting some amazing deals there! Super jealous!
I am loving the pic of her son in that onesie!  Can I lift it and post it on the embroidery forum?  SOOOO cute!

Oh, and here it the picture of my lovely package received from Saor! Smiley
She made me some very lovely crochet kitchen cloths for my new kitchen. I wonder if I'm supposed to wash with them? I don't think I can they are too pretty. I suppose they could be used to hold hot pans. That would be less damaging! I don't have the list as I'm moving and have already packed the package and the letter that included the shopping list. If Saor would be kind enough to PM it to me, I'll add it to this message.

Thanks Mini and ZaftigMomma!
I'm glad your books fit in the bag too! It was really fun to make the tree with all that wool unravelled from one of the scarves. Smiley
