I'm just so glad they fit!  Cheesy

I haven't any photos -- as usual, for me, I was so focused on the crafting that I didn't even think to photograph the things.

I think you got me addicted to making them -- I'm now planning a beaded one for a niece!

I really liked the beading on the red one..

They seem really easy to make too.. I bet with even my limited skills I can make some.. Ive been wearing them all the time so some other colors may be a good idea

This is the fantastic gift I got yesterday from Grieney!  It's purple and orange (two of my favorites) and has the very cool retro circle handles. 



Thank you so much, I love it!  (My kids do too-the first thing they both did when they saw it was put it on their heads like a hat!)

Got TWO great packages today, and my batteries died after only one photo! So, just to wet you whistles I'll post the one, and close-ups and the rest will follow tomorrow.
 
PurpleHeather sent my a fantastic surprise from the UK -- both my longed-for snacks and crafty goodness!


And yes, I have already started on the chocolate bourbons and the Smarties!  It's by sheer force of will that I resist having crisps for supper!

Kayrun -- I got your package today also -- SO COOL! I'll get pictures asap!

*grins*  Glad you liked them PimpernelSmith - the Worcester Sauce crisps were suprisingly tricky to track down Cheesy  When I got you those tubes of smarties I had one myself - so tasty :p  (Spies the opened smarties packet *grins*)

MORE PHOTS!!  Grin

Along with all my requested dietary lusts, PurpleHeather also sent me teas (Yea!), and made me cuff bracelets!
One in midnight velvet that exactly matches a dress I recently aquired:


And a matched pair of brocade cuffs in the wonderful wine color:


They are perfect for both dress and play!  Smiley
Now I just have to hide my cookies. I made the mistake of letting the BF try one, and now he lusts after them as well (yes, we have chocolate sandwich cookies in the USA, but they do not taste the same ((it's in the same way the the UK has hydox sandwich cookies, but they do not taste like Oreos!)) ).


On the very same day I received a package from Kayrun! Look at these goodies  Cheesy


Not only did she send me double-pointed knitting needles (and in a size I NEED no less!), she also sent me teas (how cool is it that both ladies read my profile), and a cloth in my beloved periwinkle blue!


I'm taking all the teas to work, as they will be very soothing; the trimester schedule change always make our students' behaviors go atomic.

THANK YOU OH WONDEROUS WOMEN OF CRAFTSTER!!!!  Kiss THANK YOU OH WONDEROUS WOMEN OF CRAFTSTER!!!!

Fantastic!  The cuffs are great and the cloth makes me wish I could knit (as do many items here on Craftster).
