I recieved from Pixieval last week and apologise for the lateness in taking pics.
She sent me a lovely Yoyo necklace, a knitted head band with Stars (from my wists) and some lovely fabric.

I love the necklace and get comments on it where ever I go. Unfortunately my nephew (6 months old) thought it looked tasty so I need to sew one of the yoyos back. Yes I learnt my lesson about wearing nice things when having hugs with babies.

Lovely fabric, the green floral is going to be a nice flowy summer skirt.

Action shot of headband. Isn't it sweet?  Unfortunately we have started  30 + degrees celcius days so I'll have to wait until it cools down abit so I can wear it more.  Sad
Thanks Val, I love everything and you did an awesome job!

Here's an action shot with the scoodie! I love the colours she used! This is going to make winter sooo much more fun


She also made me a cute lil pouch!~.. it had chocolate in it at one point Cheesy

Thanks so much elociNnicole!!!

Here's a shot of the paint brush roll Swickered sent me! I'm so excited to use it and the fabric you used is just my taste!


Here's a shot of it rolled up plus the other goodies she included: some fabric paint and collage-y stuff for my projects! I love those leaves, I'm going to have a lot of fun with those for sure! Speaking of leaves, there's also some tea that looks super good. And some chocolate too (but not pictured, I'm too busy munching on it haha)

Thank you thank you thank youuu!

Oh, I'm so glad you like it, Hilary!  I have a paintbrush roll and LOVE it, but mine isn't cute....so now I'll need to make one for myself. 

I just got my package from Val, aka PixieVal, today.  She made me the most wonderful crocheted pointy pixie hat.  I'll post pics soon.  I'm totally in love with it--it's so brightly colored and happy.

Yayyyy!!!!

I'm glad you like them! I had so much fun making them, I was a little nervous about them because they are crazier than anything I've crocheted before, but I thought they came out pretty cute1
