Wow!  This gallery is almost as good as Christmas, seeing all the great goodies everyone got.

Great scarf, love those colors!!
Tissue envelopes are amazing and so great that they're recycled too!
That cigar box shrine is so cool.  I couldn't even tell that it started life as something other than the beauty it is now.

Thanks for posting batgirl!  It's been a little hectic here.  That owl soap is HUGE!  My family will be clean all year.  Cheesy  My son was excited when I opened it.  He thought it was solid chocolate and he could EAT it!Batgirl didn't show the little cupcake soap that came with the owl.  He really got excited about that one!

The house shrine is so fun to look at.  The little cat picture cracks me up.  Someone wrote "fluffy" underneath. 

Thanks for swapping with me batgirl AND for posting pics.

Miss k you sent and received some awesome goodies!  I'm loving the scarf and warm socks the most.  The dog's cute, too.

You are so welcome, Ginger! It was a pleasure to swap with you!!

I "rescued Fluffy" from a basket of old photos in an antique shop. I knew she would find a good home one day! Smiley
I'm glad your son didn't eat the soap! LOL. That scent is my favorite, it's Turkish Mocha from Brambleberry. YUM!

Ok, I received from RondaS on Monday, but because of the death of a dear friend, and lots of rain in our area, I've not been able to post pictures.  These will not do justice to what I have received, but I wanted to get the pics up.  Ronda, if you have better pictures, please post them.

First, the whole lot that was in the box.



Next, one of Ronda's lovely magnetic hematite bracelets.  I adore this bracelet and I don't wear jewelry, but I bet I'll wear this one.



Then she sent me rocks, some tumbled and some not.  There is some picture jasper, unakite (which I've never seen before), and several pieces of rainbow obsidian.



This piece of obsidian is almost translucent.  It's beautiful.



This orb is wonderful.  It has its own stand.



Untumbled stones for my rock tumbler.  This will be fun to see what I get.



Next, a very small cuppa for my miniature house.  I tried to hold it up for size reference.




And finally, what I asked for, embroidered pillow cases.  Ronda does all this beautiful handstitching, which I would not have the patience for.  My pegasus and all of the floral work that goes with it.  I have a right and left piece along with a dresser scarf that will look great on my antique mahogany dresser. I could not capture the pegasus well, but trust me, it's gorgeous.





Thank you so much, Ronda.  It is much appreciated.

And this gallery just gets better.  I love everything, just haven't been up for getting on craftster lately.

I am glad you like your package pinokeeo - and I will be interested in seeing what the rough turn out to be! Looks like I was right and those pillow cases need a good ironing after the trip...  Undecided

that little sphere looks so dainty by your keys - it could almost fit into your miniatures collection... which - with all the chocolatey miniature foods you have gotten, I figured you could use a cuppa to set alongside! It was the first thing I got for you.  Wink

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss or your friend - hugs and be well.

Ronda
Blessings!

first - sorry about the double posting - it is unintentional...

so! I got my package from jloveg today and I was totally gobsmacked when I opened it - why are you ever worried lady? you got mad sewing skilz!

clickable of why the tracking never worked! stupid post office peoples....


anyways - she made me a "tote bag" which is really more of a weekend suitcase than a tote! wow, is it something!



I love the pattern on the outside - just a little bit of teal and soft colors, and chocolate brown trim and lining! It is in my room and I am going to take it with me on my early Thanksgiving with the kids trip coming up next week...

clickables of more views:
the front and back are similar
  I thought this pic was the other side?
and the side with a little pocket on it   

and a look at all the pockets inside and the lining  - don't she got mad skilz?


and tucked inside was something heavy - the not quite rocks she sent me!  Wink They are green onyx pieces! I love them! My first egg shaped one and a little carved bear! I don't usually like carved critters, but he will help me keep good thoughts of my daughter who is often bearlike in nature, LOL!


another view of the bear   
   and look how well they fit into my collection?

thank you so much jloveg! the bag is amazing and the extra bits are terrific!

Ronda
Blessings!

That is such a beautiful package of goodies RondaS! Those cases must have taken forever to stitch!

I love your new bag too, very useful!

I warn you now that these photo's don't do justice to the wonderful clothes pseudo_pix made me. Self timers are not the best when you're trying to capture clothes on yourself! Cheesy

The whole package: trousers, hoodie, skirt, gloves, shawl...doh, but the bag is missing.


Here it is in action!


Hee hee! This fits perfectly, and I love the way it is pieced (side and top, which also has piping) and shaped at the bottom!

Needs an iron to flatten it, but I was too busy wanting to get pics!

The best mittens ever! Grin

Also you can just make out the apples on the hoodie Cheesy

I'll get photo's of the hoodie and trousers tomorrow. My photo's from today were just awful!
