Here are a couple of pics of my fantastic scarf I got!  My partner also included enough yarn to make another scarf and of course the pattern.  That was so sweet of her to give me the yarn as well!  Anyways, I hope ya'll enjoy!

YAY! I received from Girlygirltomboy not too long ago and now finally charged my battery.

I absolutely loved my package! The bag was so cute! I adore messengers b/c I hate readjusting shoulder bags. Check it out :3



Nice big pockets


Turned inside out so you can see the inside


The construction of this bag was very impressive

My partner must've been psychic, if I saw these I would've totally picked them up.


Thank you so much for a lovely package! I definitely put it to good use when I went to competition.

I received today! whisp3rd sent pretty slippers and lovely yarn and a hook to make my own. She also sent the best ever how to crochet manual and some easier patterns to get me started. Thank-you so much! Hopefully, she can post pictures so you can see the pretty yarn - both the yarn she used (burgandy) and the yarn for me to use (pretty multicolor). Thank-you so much!

ok I did that a lot quicker than I thought

So, Auntiem was interested in a pair of crochet slippers, so I crocheted some up. She told me that she was a beginning crocheter so I tried to find a pattern that was simple and was instant satisfaction. Definitely instant! I completed them in four hours and that was with getting up and moving around.

I included a packet that taught the beginning steps of crocheting along with some other patterns that kind of took baby steps to the slipper pattern. I'm sure she'll have no problem being as knitting is harder than crocheting.

Unfortunately, I couldn't include the bulky yarn the pattern called for (b/c there doesn't seem to be much of a call for it here in Texas) so instead I included my own handspun. 4oz of Superwash Merino top, handdyed from Spincerely on Etsy.


I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for being a wonderful recepient! It was fun :]

Oh my! it is handspun! Thank-you ever so much! My boss is fondling the yarn as we speak, hmmm I may have to tackle her to get it back she's getting that dreamy look on her face like she is trying to decide what to make with it.

It is official - me and my SO are in love with my slippers - they actually stay on while I'm sleeping and they are just warm enough, but not too hot. Thank-you again!

I am really glad you enjoy them! That was my number one concern as to whether or not they would get too hot.

I am totally make great use out of my bag also! I just made a tote recently so I'm going to attempt those patterns very soon.
