OK - finally got home to get my photos ready to post!

again - I am so happy with what iheartcapnhook sent me and I really love them!

she made me a needle roll for my crochet hooks and a roll up for my jewelry making tools - out of the most wonderful brocade fabric that I have ever seen - it is so perfect for me and I actually squeed with joy when I first saw it! Hubby thought I was bonkers...

here they are as I first saw them


(click on the rest of pics for larger view)
needle roll partly unrolled:


the mess of my crochet hooks before:


and after:


and rolled up with some of the detail of the stitching on the inside of the larger tool roll up:


I didn't put my tools in the larger one yet (some of them are still in the car) - I am going to re-inforce the sides and bottom of it with a little hand done satin stitch first as it is too lovely to risk tearing! I really love these so much!

oh - and my stepson says he wants one too since I wouldn't let him have mine!

 Tongue  Tongue  Tongue  Tongue

he will have to fend for himself!

iheartcapnhook stalked me well! I love asian brocade fabrics and black/gray is an awesome color for me - plus dragon pattern! She managed to hit almost every favorite thing she could with these!

still floating over them!

Ronda, I am SO glad that you like it!  I do have quite a bit of extra brocade (wink wink!)  When I saw it,  I was oddly drawn to it.  I thought it would be perfect!  YIPPEEE!!!

It looks as though one of our senders may have flaked.  I'm going to be posting for a swap angel next week if anyone is interested...

We still have
