Okay, here it is, over 12 square feet floor space covered in fiber from lapoli!

overview of everything:

These are the braided, hand painted rovings. So Many! So beautiful, it's so overwhelming, but I keep hugging them!

these are wonderfully soft rovings I will love spinning these:

olive green is the color of my eyes, so I wear alot of this color, so look at what lapoli sent me! It has a bit of glitz, which is incredible. so soft! Gorgeous color

A special batt, tied with an organza ribbon:

Then came the art batts, in the second pic I unrolled to show how artistic they are.
I can hang these in a frame they all so beautiful!

Still not finished Shocked A new fiber, bamboo! It is so shiny! I think it is even prettier & shinier than silk!

And then a total surprise, but two dinatopia books, ones I don't have! I started reading them, such a nice surprise!

Oh lapoli! What a great swap, I'm overwhelmed, and you did absolutely GREAT!!! I love it all and can't pick my fav! well maybe the bamboo? but truly the range of fiber and colors is too marvelous.

And now you say MORE is coming! You did great! I'm so happy you accepted the invitation to dance! I'm one spoiled spinner!

THANK YOU, LAPOLI!!!
I'M TOTALLY SPOILED
AND
I LOVE IT ALL!!!

I got a second parcel from pseudo_pix!

I was not expecting it (she didn't let me know she sent it out) but it is adorable!



cute little tin, covered and decorated...

she lined up the seams so well you can't really tell unless you look real close! this is the same side but the light is a little different so you can see how well she did!
    and inside! straight off my wists!   

a traveling sewing kit with everything I would need in it for emergency repairs!

I got one a while ago and my DD snagged it and it disappeared never to be seen by me ever again! and my other DD is eyeing this one so I am leaving it on my wists just in case...  Undecided

heck if it were at all masculine looking I think the hubby would even snitch it from me!

thank you so much for the additional surprise!

BroknWingz you sent a wonderful package to RhymeswOrange!

Lots of wonderful things! I have to comment on the hermit crab, he/she is so cute!

The bunny scarf is just adorable, too. The necklaces are a wonderful selection.

good job!
