I received the greatast packages this week!  All images are clickable thumbnails!

From LAPOLI I received asian-inspired decorated mgnetic tins!  Here they are already full and in there temporary home.  We are doing a metal square backsplash when my husband returns and they will have a new home then!



CLOSE UPS:



Thanks, LAPOLI!  I love them!  They are perfect.

Here is the package I received from ANIMEGIRLIE.  She claimed me for a water bottle carrier.  It is the most gorgeous shade of red! 



Thank you so much!  It will come in so handy!

And, if that isn't enough...I received from K8KRE8S.  I received a tea cozy for my french press.  It is gorgeous! 



I had a birthday party for my son on Sunday, used it and received so many comments on it!  Thank you so much.

I just want to say a special thank you to everyone who participates in the Ongoing Wish Swaps!  You are the best!

Parisgirl - bkrenning4 wanted specific sizes (something more than 1oz and less than 4oz--these are 3.4oz, I think). I ended up getting them at Bed, Bath and Beyond, I think? They were perfect because they were already magnetic and had clear tops that made it easy to decorate.  You can find plenty of them in different sizes, though, just by searching around online. 

I was happy with how they turned out--I may even do a set for me!

Thanks for explaining the row counters to me...I don't really knit, but my mom does and I was wondering if she could use some.

Everyone has such cool creations this round.  I hope I can reach the bar. 

Lapoli-digging the new avatar, still feel like a jack-a** though for making such a comment.  However, I'm not afraid of you anymore cause you have been so nice Wink

Glad you like them, Betty!  Those vintage magazines have really amazing patterns if you're willing to dig for them!

OH YES.....THEY SURE DO!!!  I'm in the process of putting together a pattern album made up of all my favorite patterns from magazines.  I choose my favorite patterns from magazines, cut them out, then I laminate them and put them in the album.  The only problem I'm having is that sometimes there's two really cool patterns on one page (both front & back), lol.  Then I have to decide which one I want to keep the most, lol.  Having a ball putting it all together though:))
THANKS AGAIN oneredboot:))
Hugs,

Sajona, glad you like the yarn. When you mentioned you never seem to get enough of one type to dye for a larger project... well, I figured I needed to help ya out! I forgot to include in the note that the yarn is straight from Ireland - I purchased it at an estate sale from some very crafty, older ladies who were destashing.   Wink
