I agree with the wire bicycle being tres neato! They make great charms. I Think that I may have to make about a ton of these.

I received my awesome package today from cindy!

It had....

Awesome knitted(?) washclothes with a bike image in them



A super cool wire bike


Some much needed knitted biking gloves (it snowed today!) that say "Live to bike"



Also a sweet bike inspired cd! Thanks so much Cindy!

Wicked awesome packages guys!
I am so glad to see such neat stuff in our gallery! And boywonder said it best, there are never enough exclamation marks!!!! Especially regarding bikes!!


I love all Buglady's wire bikes, that must have taken ages!
Same with Cindy's wire bike! It is awesome that you ladies have the patience for all the bending and pulling, I definitely couldn't handle it.

The illusion knitted wash cloths are also really cool. (I secretly love that it's a road bike... but I'm not a bike-ist, I swear!)

And arm warmers all around! I must admit that I secretly stowed away my riding gloves in hope that it might stop the snow from coming... no deal.

I have major bike goody envy so far! I ckeck the mail every day for my package! Yay!

hahahaaaa...april fools avitars... it really took me awhile to figure out what was going on!!

GOSH! its been so hard for me to sit on the computer lately! which i guess is a good thing, i already gave up t.v!

but here are the pics of what cassey sent me! i love everything SO SO much! i hope she likes her package too!

First thing I found was this awesome scarf/collar! It's the only thing I don't have a pic of yet, but I'm working on that one!

Then I find this amazing bag, that attaches to my bike, and has an extra strap so I can take it off and use it as a purse!





off the bike details...



and on a bike! Not my bike, but you get the idea!


Then inside was this little coin-purse, which is currently being used as my wallet! I LOVE the fabric!
and all the buttons she used were vintage too! You can't see, but it has adorable yellow polka-dot lining fabric!


And she also send some cute froggie paperclips, and a little notebook!


THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH CASSEY! I LOVE EVERYTHING!

I even took the bag out for a test run @ Critical Mass last Fri, and it was a big hit! It was so nice riding without something weighing down on my back!

I got goodies from Animegirlie!!

There were two of these BIG denim panniers, with a really clever way of stiffening the back of the bags so they don't flop into the spokes:


And a super cute neck warmer and hat in bright sunshiny colours (with a note that said "for cooler nights," which made me laugh because it was -12C here this morning and never did get above freezing despite the sun Cheesy); also a set of straps to keep my pant legs from getting eaten by the chain:



And some adorable stationery with bikes on!


Thank you so much, Animegirlie!! (The panniers are especially great because my previous set, a cheap pair that were never designed for the abuse I put them through, finally shredded completely around the zipper last week! I was trying to figure out how on earth I could salvage them and maybe expand them to hold more than a notebook, lunch, and pair of jeans... and now I don't have to! Thanks!)

Yay! I'm glad that you liked everything Alyssa and that you are getting use out of everything so far. I have had more swap anxiety with this swap than any other worrying about what you would think about everything.

Buglady. You got an amazing package. You should post some action shots of the neck warmer and hat.
