We do have a gallery, for more than a week now!

Katz:  As I was driving home today I wondered if my package had arrived.  By the time I got home and saw my angel DD and our cute 8 month old foster son my mind was fixed on playing with them.  My DH was watching football  (I am a football season widow Tongue) and forgot to mention to me that a much anticipated package HAD arrived.  I did not know it was here until I looked up on our entertainment center and saw a box.  I stared at it wondering what my DH had ordered from online and it hit me...I was expecting a box!  I jumped up, ran over to the entertainment center and as I took it down I asked my DH if my package had arrived!  He says, "Oh, yes.  I forgot."  (He usually is very attentive and has always been a sweet husband.  He just gets in the zone when his favorite team is playing.  I can't complain though.  He changes 95% of all the diapers, willingly. Smiley

My DD saw me with the package and started asking me if it was for her.  She remembers the first and only other swap I ever did and the fact that she received goodies in it.  She stood by me while I tried to rip off the tape.  I was too excited to go to the kitchen and get a knife to cut the tape so it took me a little longer to get it opened. I absolutely LOVE everything and DD tried to claim it all for herself!  I took pictures but haven't cropped them in Photoshop yet.  I hope to get that done tomorrow and then post them.  You really did spoil me!  Thank you so much.  Since you crochet I was really hoping you were going to crochet dishcloths and doilies for me.  I have to tell you how great your embroidery on the dishtowel turned out too.  I'm embarrassed with the one I sent you now.  I'm totally a beginner with embroidery.  I love the crocheted wool pillow with the flower on it.  It's in my kitchen along with the black doily and the beeswax kitty (which smells so good).  I saw the beeswax ornaments on your blog!  My DH and I made candles and other little figures for Summer Solstice a couple years ago with a bunch of people.  I hadn't thought about making ornaments.   DD got her Christmas present early since she was there when I opened the box and REALLY wanted it!  She took it into her room before I read the card that said it was for her.  She told me "I need it."  I took a picture of where I am putting some of the things in my kitchen.  I am looking for the perfect spot for the red doily. 

Well, I'm tired and need to get to bed.  I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Thanks Rira for setting me up with a FANTASTIC partner!!!

Well, I *was* going to be done by Friday of last week, then I decided to make a last-minute change to one of my projects in light of the extension (well, that and a less than stellar outcome for the original idea). Just waiting for one of my projects to er, do something, then I plan to hit the PO in the morning. Double-exciting because my package is on its way too! I hope the mailman delivers packages at the beginning of his route this week. I'm looking forward to seeing lots of fun pictures in the gallery this week.  Grin

Pinkrlt, I hear you.  I would be done last Friday but I would have made it in the last second...I wanted so bad to finish nicely my last 2 projects. I am so glad I had them made in a more calm fashion...and I had time to have 1/2 of my pictures taken...I will be done with the "photos" soon. : )...How about a teaser? nah.... Grin
