Frosty772 received my package and has asked me to post some pics as she's without a camera at the mo. I claimed her for knitting goodies for herself and beginner's crochet things for her son.

I inherited my nana's knitting needles (but not her talent!) so I sent Frosty some of the collection, plus a new pair of bamboo needles as I've heard people rave about them. Also included a set of needles for forming cables(??) Someone gave them to me, but I can't use them


For her son I sent cool coloured hooks in a zipped pouch


Some wool they can fight over share


And finally some bits that I hope Frosty will love, as she's very into Victoriana. A clasp, plus some genuine Victorian buttons that I had been hoarding for ages and never found the right project for



You were great fun to make a package for Frosty and I hope you and your son like everything  Smiley

Yay! Last night my mailbox had BOTH of my wishes waiting for me.  Cheesy

catpants made me a cool double sided hand carved stamp. One side has my PhoenixFire Designs logo and the other the cutest little penguin. (I totally love penguins.)

The stamps:



Here's both quickly inked:



I love that you made it dual sided! Thank you so much for the fun stamps!  Grin

.... and .....

meganlorraine made me the most awesome Nintendo DS case ever. (And because she also has the original DS, the case fits perfectly. The only cases you can get these days are the ones for the "Lite" which is thinner and smaller than the one I have.)

Here's everything all together:



(She included some sewing notions for me since I'm just learning to sew myself.)

Action shots!



And it's even got a little pocket in the back:



Thank you so much! I LOVE it. I think it looks awesome and I love the blue and brown. I couldn't stop *squee*-ing over it last night.  Grin


This was my first OWS and it was really fun. Thanks both of you for making it so great.

My summer has been nuts with trips and visitors. I am so sorry to my partner tibeydo for not posting this sooner. Her package arrived to me so quickly that I lost track of time and should have posted the pictures immediately.

Below is the entire package minus a stack of vintage patterns which made it's way into my collection before I had photographed the entire group.




Below is a close up of the handmade loveies I received. I labeled them so you can see what they were. My daughter decided she wants to add chocolate chips to the cupcake because that's how she would eat it if it were real (My kids have a huge play kitchen).



I was very late in sending out my package to her, but if should have been received by now and I hope the delay was worth the wait.

I know how important it is to post photos and I will promise to try and do better.

much love-
lorib

All the little extra goodies in igobylorib's package were from her wist (the finger puppet and the pincushion, which was originally an apple in the wist with a note about how cute it would be with a mushroom)... and I also made a Pandapple keychain from scupley.

I messaged igobylorib, but the PO hasn't updated her package... I hope it still makes it safely Sad

I can't believe I forgot the keychain. I'll take a picture and add it. As for your package, it reads like they accepted it, but hasn't sent it on the way, which ticks me off. I will look into and see if by chance they still have it

Oh my gosh, I've been wisted!  Grin

The pattern is from the book Pretty Little Pincushions, in case you'd ever want to make one.
