I'm back!  I also recieved a gorgeous package from mimiw!

First off, I got this handspun yarn in the mail from mimi, by way of penguino, so thanks to penguino too!:


Then I opened the BIG box from mimi, and I got these, and I am in love with them!:

patchwork boxes!  These are so perfect!  Me and my hubby have been shopping for a new piece of furniture for the kitchen, to pretty much keep us organized, and I was sad because everything in our price range had no drawers, just shelves.  These bins will work perfectly on the open shelves! 
Heres a side view to show the patchwork:


and here's a shot of the insides:


I don't know how mimi does it, but some how she always picks fabrics that go with EVERY room in my house. 

But that's not all!  She also sent me these two zipper pouches:


They are a blue ticking stripe sort of fabric on the outside, and I had to hold one open to show the cute apples on the inside!
And mimi, my needles fit just perfectly in them...they will be great for traveling!

And last but not least, this adorable drawstring project bag!  I love these, as I've always wanting to take a small knittng project with me when I go out, and this is the perfect size!


and heres a closeup of the pretty beads on the drawstrings:


Thank you sooo much mimiw!  I love everything!
