I have to confess, I bought a plain desk set and embellished it, I didn't actually construct it!  Wink

Thank you!  Smiley  They were tons of fun.  And green is her favorite color, hence making one of all green fabrics.  It's also my favorite color, hence my having so many different green fabricsWink

I think I only repeated a fabric once or twice.  And then either because I liked it or because it was so short and I wanted more.

Be prepared for the package of awesomeness I received from lapoli. 

I opened the box and on top were 4, count'em 4 beautiful batts of wool for spinning.  One of the green batts has purple and orange sparkly bits in it, my favorite color scheme and the brown one has curly locks in it.




The there were 600+ yards of lapoli spun yarns!




I already started a scarflet with the red and green one.  I'll add another picture of in progress tomorrow.



Some kettle dyed roving in my FAVORITE color - Copper.


A learn to dye kit. So I can learn to dye my own wool for spinning!


An Art Yarn in a Bag kit!  How cool is that?!  I'll have to figure out how to put these to good use.


And I am saving the best for last!  Yes, there is more!
She found this awesome scarf on my wist that I have absolutely no hope of being able to make since I am a knitter in only the vaguest sense of the word.  An boy did I want one.


The photo doesn't do it justice.  I hope to take a better one when I don't feel like such a lame photographer.  Is that not the best?!

This is an awesome package.
