And here are the pics of Frogger's super sweet package! I only have my cell camera currently and I had to take them tonight, so the lighting could be better, so if you have better pics, Frogger, please post yours too.

Here's everything all together, a green cabled cozy that perfectly fits and matches my favorite little travel mug, another really pretty purply ribbed cozy that I think will be perfect with my other mug, some delicious smelling coffee from a local shop near Frogger (the bag says they roast it in the shop...that is soo cool and I bet that place smells great) And...best thing ever! An awesome tea wallet with Gnomes! That's right, friends, she said she hunted everywhere to get me that fabric with little gnomes pushing wheelbarrows of mushrooms. Absolutely fabulous! I love it so much I've been carrying it around with me for the past two days!


And here is a close up of the green cozy around my fave mug (the mug is a small one...meant for kids I think, but perfect for espresso, so the cozy is normal sized, not gigantic like the pic makes it seem. Makes it even better that it does fit the little mug. And see how perfect the colors match?)


And of course I had to get a close up of the Gnomes:


I love everything Frogger! Thank you soo much!

I'm so glad that you liked the cozy, SlickMariaVic, and so glad that it fits!!!  I've never really done freeform crochet at all, so it was kind of a challenge.

I'm so glad you liked everything jshires! I'm stoked the green one matches your mug. : ) Surf City coffee is really yummy... it pulls you in if you drive by when they're roasting!

I've never tried freeform crochet... looks fun!

Yay! I just received a FANTASTIC package from jshires! Check out the cozy goodness!!

TWO crocheted cotton cozies... (great idea on the wash-ability of cotton, BTW!), teapot gift cards, a whole pound of organic sumatra coffee (how did she know I'm an organic girl?!?), froggie stickers...

And best of all, the whole thing is sitting on a fabulous hand-embroidered tea towel!! I love it!




My favorite is definitely the little coffee pot one... though the teapot eating her lid is pretty great too!
Thanks jshires for all your hard work and craftiness! This has been a great swap and you are a great partner!

the teatowel is very cute. love the funky yarn used for the cosy and the coffee sounds divine.

I've got my fingers crossed that craftrica will get her cosy really soon.

Whew! I'm so glad you like everything, Frogger! I was afraid the towel wouldn't be your style. And I'm glad the cozies fit your mug!
