I purchased the fabric off ebay, but the same seller has a shop on etsy too.

OK, I am finally getting around to getting my photos up here. TAOJ made a wonderful stocking package ... thanks so much, again!

A beautiful cream colored stocking, felted, I think. It is really soft, and has no seams, so I assume it was felted.


Wonderful hand-knitted socks (my favorite!!) that I am looking forward to wearing tomorrow  Grin, a great scarf, a really yummy hot chocolate kit (complete with whisk!) and a journal


Organic soap, trims for projects, a lint remover (to capture all the dog hair that winds up on my projects), High School Musical baggies (The Child is going to love these), a big chocolate chip cookie in a snowman tin, also for The Child, and many lovely munchies.


I love all of it, and cannot say "Thanks" enough~

So I am finally home from my trip this holiday weekend.  I have uploaded the pics of the package I received from MissApril last week!  (So sorry for the delay!!)  I received such a fabulous package, I feel like the one I sent pales in comparison.  Undecided
Beware the massive amount of pictures that follow!!

Group shot before opening:


Group Shot after opening (minus the advent calendar):


Some individual shots----
My gorgeous stocking in my favorite holiday colors of blue and white:

I love that the stocking reminds me of Granny squares, which are one of my favorite crochet patterns.

Advent calendar from my wists:


close-up:

I thought this was such a clever idea when I saw this on etsy!  The days are magnetic backed and put on a muffin tin!

edible goodies and play-doh that my daughter has laid claim to:


treats for the pets:


knit market bag and washcloths:

The bag is a much prettier color in person, so soft and buttery colored.  I've already used it to run errands 2 times.  The washcloths match my kitchen.  Smiley  (I have developed and unhealthy obsession with knitted/crocheted washcloths.  I think I have a couple dozen...)

knit calorimetry and scarflette:

The both are great, the scarflette is so soft.  I wore the calorimetry all day on Thursday and on Friday when we went crabbing.  (The Oregon coast is cold!)
Action shot (sort of, mostly just a gratuitous shot of me and my son...):


My favorite-est item she made, a knitted elf stocking cap for my son!


Action shot:

This is so gorgeous!!  I was stunned when I unwrapped it.  This is one of those things I put on my wists but never really expected to receive because it's so labor intensive.  You have such awesome knitting skills MissApril.  I am in awe...  I am bummed that he has such a giant head and he will not be able to wear this for much longer.


Thank you so much MissApril.  You are the most awesome-ist partner ever!!  (Keep in mind people, she did all this in the midst of moving!!)

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

Finally i have thwarted the evil designs of the builders, my camera lead and camera, I now can post pictures of the beautiful stocking  receieved from zuliblu

First the gorgeous stocking, made from the softest fleeciest wool

and a group shot of all the goodies, the candies have mysteriously disappeared since this picture was taken and my daughter has snaffled the sharpies (she adores them and we can only get black ones over here) and the christmas cards.

this is a close up of some of my favourite things,


thanks zuliblu I loved everything, hope you get your stocking soon.

This is a super, fantastic gallery.  I really, really love that crocheted stocking!  And the idea for the muffin tin advent calendar is terrific.  I keep putting off making one until it is too late, but I could actually make one of those today!

klum - that hat is adorable on your son!  He is too cute!

I received from TwistedTruth a bit ago and here's what I got:

First, the stocking - very cute with such little cross-stitched Alice themed pictures on it!


Some catnip kitty toys for Sasha: yes, she is hogging ALL of them at once. Cheesy


An ami-Santa!  My hubby asked why a gnome was dressed as Santa, he does have that cute little gnome look, doesn't he? Smiley


A crochet hook roll with a hook:


A rice heat/cool pad with the same materials as the stocking (i love the materials!):


A notebook of crochet patterns with plenty of room for me to add my own:


Some cute hairties:


A Santa trinket box, a Santa ornament and a pincushion (I've been needing a pincushion, my pins live in a little metal box & I get stabbed regularly):


Thanks so much for swapping with me, TwistedTruth!  You did a lovely job!

I recieved yesterday, from the fab Baa Me Chick!


The elfin stocking! And Candy Canes!!!

Sweet decorations and pouches! Also a cute little pin and a knitted headband too!

An amazingly coloured scarf! Hehe The colours are pretty!

Candles/holders. I also got a larger snowman candle but somehow it escaped the photo taking!

Tonnes of jewellery/accessories! Some even have Hello Kitty beads!

Notecards! These are actually amazing, they all have sweets on the front. There are liquorice allsorts, jelly beans smarties and cupcakes!

But my favourite...A pair of knitted fingerless mittens, and matching hat! I have been wearing the mittens today, whilst out and about! The wool is so nice, a mix of turquiose, pink and purple, which are my fav colours! The photos do not do it justice!

Everything is amazing.

I could not decide on who to send the stocking to as a "hug", so I put the names in a hat and pulled one out. The stocking is going to Lrschic's mum, who has had a really bad year.

I am so glad to have been part of this swap, regardless of what happened.

Hope everyone has an amazing christmas and a very peaceful new year.
