Hey, everybody! Oohmybees sent me some amazing bargains!

They came in a box decorated with one of my favorite things, dragonflies:


And everything inside was wrapped in tissue decorated with dragonflies, too! It was very special and pretty:


She made me feel like a super model because she sent me a ton of clothing all tailored to me and my loves. She made t-shirts, a shrug, and a gorgeous dressy tank top.

Get ready to see "Crafter's Next Top Model!"  Wink

This babydoll tee has dragonflies above the little pockets:

(after this photo my camera died so the rest of the photoshoot is indoors at night. The lighting is not so good, but I did my best to take decent pics!)

And it has a colorful dragonfly on the chest. I love the decorations, the buttons, and the style. It fits me perfectly!


I love sea creatures and the octopus on this next little number is really special. This shirt is sooooo cool!

(I didn't even know it was a re-con until I read her letter. My jaw dropped!)


Awsome, right?

You won't even believe this next piece was handsewn. It is hard to do it justice with words so check it out for yourselves:

You can see the shaping even when it is just hanging there. It has a keyhole type opening in the front that I couldn't quite capture, but it is there and it really adds that special little something.

The material is breathtaking. A royal blue oriental brocade with a flower motif. So beautiful:


It feels like a million bucks when I put it on:

 I have a really hard figure to fit and this shirt is truly impressive because it somehow camouflages my huge bosom.  It fits me that great!

She also made me a velvet shrug. Luxury!

It's a deep midnight blue that really goes well with the brocade. Mmm...perfect.

Here's the back of it:

(Yes, that's a pair of circular needles holding up my hair hehe)

And she even spoiled me more by sending me the leftover fabrics she didn't use and the pattern for the tank top. Hmmmm.....
Anxious model?
or Psycho model?
I couldn't decide. They're both such fierce shots!

Thank you, K!
You really, really, blew me away. I'm so glad we were partners!


I can't believe she was able to do all this for under ten dollars, but here's the proof:

Black t-shirt: $1
Green t-shirt: $1
Grey t-shirt: $2
Blue velvet dress: $1
New Look Pattern: .10
Oriental Brocade: 4.75
Total: $9.85

Stash
Zipper
Interfacing
I-hook & eye
Thread
Fabric paint
Elastic
Freezer paper

Here's a few pics of the loot I got from Quiltersblock.. it really is a great package and I am sure the pictures are so not going to do it any justice!

This is the main part of the package.. bags bags and more bags!

That's Collin checking out his dino one.  His eyes got huge when he saw how much loot he can put in there next time he goes to grandma's house - which will be in about 2 weeks!

Logan left for school already so no action shots for him = his bag is the green one - it is just perfect!
The other bag is mine Wink Oh and the journal! Can't forget the journal!

And needle tatting loot -

There are oodles of patterns and needles and the thread all sorts of stuff.

And more loot on top of all that other loot!


Here's the breakdown...
journal thrift store - .75
papers - yard sale .10
wood D - .25 thrift store
tatting kit thrift store - .75
receipt holder Hobby Lobby - .20
vinatge button - thrift store .05
pencil holder (mug) - .50
dino fabric - Joanns 1.33
cord fabric - Craigs list - $1
decor fabric - auction box - .10

free stuff... ring kit
marbles
mini cutting mat
black fabric for straps - scraps
number fabric - scraps
dino and frog puzzle - friend was going to toss them!What was she thinking??
plastic weird toys (okay they are actually throwing star thingies with suction cups on the edges. The kids are going to love those!)

Jealous?  I would be if I didn't get it myself!  It was a great package for me!

I received today from CrochetAdikt, and I adore everything she sent!  She didn't include a price list, so hopefully she'll post one sometime.

Here's what I got:

She made these wonderful doilies, bookmark, earrings, etc.  Aren't they beautiful?


Fabric scraps that will go on my pink quilt...


A crochet hook case and homemade hot chocolate mix (I think...haven't tasted it yet but it smells AWESOME!)


All sorts of supplies so I can learn to crochet.  The yarn is beautiful colors, and she sent a bunch of patterns. 


Last, but not least, she sent me a little surprise.  This made me laugh so hard because I can SO see something like this ending up in a box that I mail out.  When you have kids, stuff like this happens... Cheesy


Thanks again, Rachel, for a great swap.  You were such a fun partner!

OMG!!! LMAO! just thought i'd let you know, that pretzel was from my daughters stash! we've been teaching her how to share so i think she just wanted to be extra generous lol

at first i couldn't see one of the crochet hooks i gave you, it blends in so well but i see it now peeking out! i thought i had forgotten to include it at first.

ok so here's the breakdown of costs:

dowels 2/$1
wood block 1.00
crochet hook 1.19
crochet hook 76c
crochet hook book 1.00 (made from halves of two fat quaters from another swap)
crochet instruction book 1.75
thread 1.74
sewing pattern 1.00
wool ease thick and quick patterns 50c
crochet patterns: free!
yarn: free from fill a box supply swap

TOTAL 9.94

from stash: mod podge, papers to decorate, beads, starch, readers digest (i like em, thought you might...), fabric scraps, homemade hot choc mix (i usually add about 4 TBsp, but try out 3 and see how chocolately it is first. i like mine extra chocolatey!!) oh and a crochet hook that was a duplicate in my stash because my b/fs best friend is too stupid and lazy to look in his couch cushions after i hung out there and asked him to look there for it so i went out and bought a new one and the next time my b/f went over there, he found it right away!!! aye boys

BTW craftydeb....anything look familiar in straw_holders package to you??

oh and the block of wood with dowels is supposed to be a thread holder, once its all put together.

also that thing that looks strangely like an octopus is actually a snowflake...i don't think there's enough starch in it so you may have to starch it a little extra...

Yeah - I was going to comment about that penguin!  How funny!  I am glad to see him making his way around the world - I do wish they took a better picture of him though!!  Don't make him first whatever you do!  He is a bit more advanced! Grin

For those that don't know - that penguin is one of my designs!  (okay, everyone probably knows that since I don't keep it a secret that I design anymore!)

What a great package!  I really have enjoyed this round.
I keep looking at the calendar wondering when I should start up round 5!  Any suggestions?
