Alphalt~ those are beautiful! I am glad you posted to show us your lovely work!

now...
I RECEIVED TWO AWSOME packages today!  Grin (we Really need a dancing smilie)

First I opened from freestyle and ...Tea Towel Jackpot baby!!!!
She sent me many of my all time favorites, the Aunt Martha's vintage stripes, a pack of white ones, some interfacing, Valentines fabric (I just joined a valentines swap so great timing!) and a very pretty card from her home state!
Here is a pic of it all out on my table...THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! You rock!


Next I opened from Rumpazel and she nailed the hat that I had wanted!! Here is me doing what I call a 'ziggy' pose hehe

and here is the lot of what she sent me out on the table. She sent more ribbons so I can change the look, several roses so I can add as many to my lovely hat as I like Smiley

 I have to say that it goes awsome with my coat and the new fingerless mits I received from missmuffcake the other day! and it fits wonderfully! I love it!!

Thank you SOOO MUCH BOTH OF YOU!!! Kiss

I am so glad you like everything.  Smiley  I have to make myself the same hat because I loved it so much...and I am thrilled that you liked the colors.  Smiley

Now...on to me...I got my package today (after a long day of travel nonetheless) and it was absolutely perfect.  I loved everything.
For starters AsphaltQueen didn't know which size stitch markers I preferred so she sent two sets (picture on top of the little blag velvet bag they came in)
Here's some detail for the larger ones...

And the smaller ones...

And here they are together...(sorry it is only a mediocre shot)

Then I got some beautiful merino cashmere blend pictured with my singing Ring of Fire mug...

And...as a complete bonus, she sent me a gorgeous necklace with two charms.  The most perfect little yarn ball and needle charm (which I couldn't get a good pic of to save my life)...

And a tea cup (since I drink tea)...pardon the odd background, I'm wearing it...

Yeah...I can take a flawless picture of a necklace while it is sitting on my bosom, but not when it is on the counter.  Tongue
And here's a gratuitous picture of my kitten before he knew mommy had new shiny things for him to try to eat....


Thank you so much.  I absolutely love everything.  I have no idea how you shoved it all in that little beautifully wrapped box.  Smiley  Okay....off to go find the perfect pattern for that yarn because I am suddenly inspired to go knit.  Smiley

That photo is great with the "ziggy Pose". I saved the picture to remember the idea. I'm a photographer and love new ideas.

I've finally got some time to post the FANTASTIC placemats that I received from stitch81

Here are all THIRTEEN of them (I've got a big family)



And I love the pretty fabric that she used for the detail - nice and swirly, my fave!



The backs are a lovely burgundy in case I need a change (how did she know that blue and burgundy is one of my fave colour combos for home dec???)



Thank you so much!!! They made the holidays so much nicer!
