Thank you for all the nice words ^^

I've never seen a London Hood before. I like the style. I'm going to have to look it up.

I've made a post about them here on craftster including a tut: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=272745.msg3080697#msg3080697

The jacket and hood are gorgeous, and I am just in LOVE with the knit jewelry!

I am So glad you said that! I was pondering making them for selling but I was "testing" them on Lunique. She got the first. Thanks! ^^

great stuff, pseudo_pix!!!  you are a talented seamstress!!!


I received an obscenely large package of "extras" from AsphaltQueen...I'm still in the process of taking pics of everything, because I wanted to immediately use everything...
But, I promise I'll get them up here ASAP!!  You guys aren't going to believe what she sent!!

Ok, I'm finally putting up these pics of the awesome stuff that AsphaltQueen sent me!!!  Prepare yourselves!

Firstly, AQ made me this kicka$$ frame, that is covered with knitting needles!  It is so cute!!  I have put a painting into it that I received from Murbeck in another swap...it fits perfectly!
Also in the picture is YARN!! (my fav color is green, can you tell?)


Next up, 2 gigantor balls of wool!  They are so pretty!


Next, this gorgeous bag!!!  You guys should really see this!  It totally rocks!  It is super sturdy, and the inside has tons and tons of pockets!  the sides fold in too.  Its a transformer!

and a shot of the inside:

(AQ, if you have better pics, you should post them, this sucker ROCKS!)

Next, an awesome assortment of AQ's beautiful photography, printed onto notecards!!  The pictures are so wonderful, clear and bright!


This picture shows my new favorite hat (GREEN!!!), a cute little cross stitch that now sits in my dining room, a skein of beautiful yarn that hid from me during the yarn picture, and a sock yarn panel!  I've seen these before, but I've never tried one...you knit socks directly from the fabric, and the dye is supposed to make really cool effects!


Next up, a cute pillow for Alexander (he loves it!  he loves to snuggle.)  and the coolest trivet ever!  It is made of strips of coiled newspaper!  I'm using it to display my favorite orchid!


This is one of my favorites!  This mosaic frame!  AQ, I'm hoping to get a good picture for it when we go on vacation this weekend!  It is sitting on my piano, with my other favorite things!


This is a paperweight that AQ blew for Alexander!  It is so pretty!  (please excuse the plastic millipede in the background!)  He totally loves it. 


And the koolaide pouch for Alexander!  pardon his "deer in the headlights" look...he always does that when I'm taking a picture!  He is kind of obsessed with this pouch.  He keeps it in his teepee, so I know he loves it!


This is my new glass flower!  hand made by AQ!!  It sits in my kitchen window, it is so beautiful when the sun comes through the window!


And maybe my favorite thing...this blown glass vase.  Oh my words, it is so beautiful! 


Thank you so much AsphaltQueen!  you are the bestest!!!!
