I am way overdue for sharing pictures of what my partner, la_chrystelle, sent to me for the IYP, but she's TOTALLY spoiled me... she sent me two separate packages, so I have tons and tons and tons of pictures to share... So, everyone have their Wisting fingers ready?  You sure?!

Okay.. the first package came really early! 

She sent a really gorgeous bracelet and a beautiful necklace.  I've worn them both tons already.. love them!




Next up are two handsewn lavender sachets.. she said the lavender was picked from her yard! Smiley  They smell so wonderful (and they're already doing their duty in protecting my stash!)



The little elephant pouch has become my vehicle to transport tea bags to work.  So cute!

And speaking of tea, she also sent a bag of loose green tea with cinammon and vanilla. It's delicious!



Next up is a cute clutch!  It's the perfect size for my wallet, my cell phone and a lip balm for dinner on the town with the hubby. Smiley



I'm also noticing that I didn't take a picture of a really neat stenciled shirt based on my Wists.  It's a three-quarter sleeved shirt with a "namaste" logo on the front.  It's' become my default workout shirt.. It's perfect and comfortable for all those crazy yoga poses. Smiley

Now, fast forward to my second package!!!

She sent me a TON of earrings!  I always drool over her earrings in the STS threads and now I have enough to wear a different pair to work almost every day for awhile!




(And the next picture has all the earrings in their tiny cute bags)  She also made a matching pleated clutch that's so cute!! I loooove it. (I have a ton of pleated clutches on my Wists, so this is perfect!)



Next, she sent me three wall hangings. I love the framed one, la_chrystelle.  What did you  make it from???



All the extras!! (Minus the stroopwafels which I pigishly ate before I could take pictures)


Now...

All that being said, I still have one picture left to share of the gigantic part of my package.  BUT.  I haven't yet sweet-talked my hubby into taking an action picture.  So, he will do that soon, and I will post a picture of the best part of the package and the best thing EVER!!!!!!

(la_chrystelle is awesome, trust me!)

I can't wait to see the action shot lapoli! it must look stunning on you!
the framed picture is made of fabric which I dyed with tea, lot's of different handmade paper, glue and did some sewing afterwards, I loved the piece myself to, I am working an a big one in different colors for myself right now too!

I had lot's of fun this round and there is coming more, since I still wait for lapoli's package, today the bell ring and I run to the door, but unfortunaly it wasn't lapoli's package Sad I am getting impatient! haha.

Would love to do another round Smiley thanks for the link superhooker! and thanks for organizing this round superhooker and sevs!

amyracinrose contacted me a while ago to say she'd received so I thought I'd post some  pics of what I sent her;
a framed embroidery of some 'sailor jerry' tatto flash:

an embroidered tea towel (based on a Mitch O'Connell design);

eeek! that could do with an iron!
a necklace made with dolls house tea set:

and an embroidered mirror (shown here next to the one I made Lilyvanilli):

I love every single piece. Fantastic stitching. Is there a kit for the mirrors? I love that idea.
