That bag is so cute; the beaded trim is such a magical touch to the already adorable fabric. I hope your niece has it when she's grown much older and taller, and then someday sees those pictures of her when it was almost as tall as she was.  Smiley I look forward to finding out who sent that one; I only know that it wasn't me!

Meanwhile, I received an awesome package from kaz814! The hefty box of everything:

(I may need to reuse the stuffing for someone else's package  Smiley)

A chunky page based on the Island of Misfit Toys!  Cheesy
front:
back:
I love it!
And she made me an adorable apple jacket/cozy! Alas I have no fruit right now to model in it, but it's sturdy enough to stand on its own.  Smiley And what is it standing on? A tin full of HOMEMADE SHORTBREAD!!!! Shocked


I don't know how many layers are in there, but OOOH it is heavenly and I haven't even made it through the top layer yet, as much gorging as I've done! She even put the recipe on the lid so I can perpetuate my shortbread addiction and keep packing on the "winter coat."

This was such a wonderful package of gifts; thank you so much!

I received from Douglas Fir today!  (Please unmask yourself!  I tried doing some detective work, but there are a number of people from your state!)

Here's my loot - I got totally spoiled.  I was on the phone when I was unwrapping and my friend said, "Kaz, it's so funny to hear you squeal like that!"  Yes, I am 30.  Yes, I do like presents.

Cheesy

Anyway, on to the loot.  A shot of everything all together... there's some absolutely GORGEOUS fabric, some amazing fabric squares in Asian prints, stitch markers, beads, zippers, a needle roll (squee!), a knitted penguin dishcloth (already next to my sink for when I do the dishes!) and three absolutely adorable Shrinky Christmas ornaments (one design straight from my wist!)




The straight-from-the-wist ornament (penguin and bunguin!):


The other two adorable ornaments (penguin and bunny!):


The dishcloth (penguin!)


The action shot of the needle roll, already in use:



Thank you SO SO much, Secret Santa!  I love everything!

teehee, taniquel, kaz814 and i were uploading pics at the same time--as i was going back through my pictures theirs were coming up at the top of the screen, without names, and i wondered if they might just be for the Secret Santa swap.

Wow, everyone's packages are so awesome.  I love the bag and the baby toy!

Calluna - oh yes, you got all the shortbread from that batch.  Well, except for the 'testers'. Wink  I figured you could share or give some as gifts if you wanted to, too!  Beware, though, it's addictive and you can't stop with 'just one'.  I'm really glad you like your gifts.  I adore the misfit toys (my plushie elephant was my model for the paper one!) so I couldn't resist.

I'm glad that Jake likes his new toy.  That was a total guess on my part.

Yeah, Deb, make out your wish list and we'll dance sometime.

I have received two packages, so I'm a little behind.  I did back-to-back craft fairs with only a couple of days in between, so I'm getting caught up.

I'll be back with photos.

Ok, here are my gifties.

The first package is from Toronto.  No name.

This is how it looked out of the envelope.  I love the little tags.  One says "So, where are my cookies?...Santa"  and the other one says "open only if you've been good.  I'm watching...Santa"  I don't know if I should have opened that one.  Oh well. Cheesy



Look at these beautiful pendants.  



I have some blue cord that exactly matches the blue pendant, so I'm very excited.

The other package contained the most beautiful beadwork ornaments.



The pictures do not do justice to these items, but the light was fading and I was trying to hurry.  Also, I have a pretty good idea where these came from, but I'm not sure.



The second package came from Phoenix.  Again, I have a clue, but that's about it.  No name.  Just a tiny card that said it was from Tiny Tim.

Check out this double strand necklace.



There was also a small bag of scrabble letter, but I think the cat made off with them.  I haven't located them yet.  I guess she liked them, too.

Thank you to my two secret Santas, whoever you are.
