Oooo I really like those crocheted stars!  I haven't gotten around to learning how to knit or crochet, so I'm always doubly impressed Smiley  And I like the "glue us!" labels on the stars... very awesome!

Speaking of kitties, one of my friend's cats got a hold of a roll of toilet paper one night.  Apparently it looked like it snowed... everywhere  Cheesy

i really like the ice skater and the dogs*  ur pkg was awesome!!

MonkeyThumb, I'm glad you and your kiddo liked the package!  I was pretty nervous about it because I tried a couple new things that I'd never done before (like the felt ice skater).  I like how it turned out kinda plush from all the layers Smiley

Anyway, here's pictures!

Felt ice skater scene because MonkeyThumb mentioned that she likes things skating related.  Each piece was separately appliqued on!

Little felt tree, weighted at the bottom so it won't topple over, with appliqued felt circle ornaments.  It was so cute that I made another one for myself Smiley

And I don't have a good picture of the red puppy by itself, but here he is in a group with some other ones I made...

I can see from the USPS.com that yellie received my package yesterday. She is a busy student, and this is the end of the semester, so I am going to take the liberty of posting what I made for her.

This is the main thing she wanted, a beret-style hat for her soon-to-be dreads. This one is done in Patton's soy-wool stripes. (used soy since silk was out for vegetarian reasons)

i ended up having enough yarn to make hand/wrist warmers as well, so I did, here they are:

I also sent her a little pincushion:

She also got some European licorice, but I didn't take a photo of that. I hope she is happy and warm and doing very well in her final exams!!!!!!! Go Yellie!

I got my amazing items from little*devil today! I am so spoiled!

Here is a pic of it all wrapped it (gosh it was hard to take it with out tearing into it all!)

Then here is most of it together, 4 felt star ornaments, a set of holiday coasters, tea towel, and ROCKIN' pillow.

Then here is the apron she made me from great holiday fabric:

A close up of the tea towel:

And a close up of the best thing of all, the gnome pillow! It is embroidered so well! I love it! thanks so much little*devil!

I'll get your package out on Saturday!

The beret for the back

And the previoulsy mentioned dreads, in progress. Please ignore my ridiculous face and chubby kid fingers

Thanks Prickly Venus!! I can't wait for you to get yours!!!
