I received from SewEnthusiastic today. She really really spoiled me!
Look at all the goodies she sent...


The whole lot. The striped blanket beneath is actually my new amazing picnic blanket she made! Isn't that great!? I'll have picnic every day now, even in winter  Grin


A beautiful tote bag in my favourite colours.


A picture frame and photo of Lake District. The frame looks like a log cabin.


A forest themed necklace. She said she's new to fusing glass, but I think it's just fantastic.


some extra goodies: note paper because I like writing letters on vacation; biscuits and sweets and iced tea (which I'm addicted to in summer); and I just realized that the book she sent is missing on the picture - it's a Beatrix Potter book because Lake District is famous for Beatrix Potter. I love Beatrix Potter, so the book is perfect.

Thank you so much, Nicola, for the this amazing virtual vacation and for being my partner again!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

oh yay, it's so nice to see a lake & forest theme package!!!!  The beach ones have been done up lovely but I'm a mountain girl at heart, stuck in florida, so it's just a nice change of pace.  The picnic blanket is such a great idea and I love love love the colors and stripes!  The tote and frame are beautiful too  Smiley

Beautiful bag!  I definitely get the water-feel of it.  Very creative!

I've received! I LOVE EVERYTHING!!! Murbeck really got my destination down as far as I'm concerned! I wanted my virtual vacation to be a deep sea diving exploration vacation! She really nailed it, and everything is crafted so well!

First up: The bag! It's FLANNEL! I LOVE FLANNEL! You were correct in your assumtion that I would approve of this, murbeck.  Cheesy Is it made out of a button down shirt? I love how you saved the pocket!


Second up: A way cool awesome hat! "to protect your head from the cold harsh nights..." This most definitely will do the trick!


and a close up...


Just so you guys know, this is murbecks FIRST hat and FIRST circular needle project!  Shocked Can you believe it?! I never would have guessed if she hadn't had said something about it!

Third up: A chapstick cozy! With map fabric, I can navigate the high seas AND keep my lips protected from salty swells!


Fourth up: Straight out of the ocean... a mysterious sea creature in my fancy new specimen jar! I think he's just fantastic, and I do so love his little alien booty  Wink

sorry for the EXTREMELY blurry photo of this... my little point and shoot apparently doesn't like shooting through glass... maybe murbeck has a better photo of him in the jar?

and a sorta close up of the little guy out of his jar


Fifth up: A neat box to keep some trinkets from my travels in... maybe some other mysterious creatures of the deep can reside in here! I believe it's covered with the same fabric that the chapstick cozy is made out of...


And last up: A wickedly cool nautical thermometer, barometer, and humidity gauge! This is SO COOL! I can't wait to hang it up in my new apartment... It's going to go next to my shark poster  Grin

Sorry for the glare on it... It's late, and I only have a lame overhead light to use...

Thank you SO MUCH, murbeck! I love everything! I hope you enjoy your package (that I'm sending tomorrow!) as much as I have enjoyed mine!

Awesome stuff! I love the beach & that's what I picked, but it's so neat to see other stuff!

Oh my Goodbye, I'm sooooooooooooo happy you're happy!!!! 

I actually couldn't get a good picture of the little water creature guy at all, my camera SUCKS for closeups (asking Santa for a better one for Christmas, lol) but I do have some better photos of the bag...

Here you can see the whole thing, backpack straps and all-


A better view of the front (the pocket to the right's flap is folded up, so it looks funky but it's perfectly fine  Wink)  The flap buttons down to the front of the shirt.


And also, the inside.  I couldn't get a good shot of the inside pocket I made, but you can see how roomy it is Smiley  The top has a drawstring under the flap.


And here is a bird's eye view of the hat, I just thought the top was neat  Grin
