I received yesterday, and I think it's from Homerof2?
Looks like some more of the great crochet squares she made
for me last year!

You guessed wrong, they aren't from me.  Wonder who they are from!

They are from me! I hope you like them, kayrun. I ran out of time and yarn - you never know, I may just secretly send you more. I like crocheting squares that much.... Grin

There are so many great packages in this gallery, I love it! I'm ready to send my last two packages today - I'm sorry to my secret partners that I'm late. I hope they make it there by Christmas!

I received a fabulous package from my Secret Santa, spotnik!

She sent me a beautiful crocheted hat from yarn that she said had been hanging out in her stash for the right project.  It's very soft + warm and, unfortunately, my attempted "in action" shot doesn't do it justice:



She also sent a "bag bag" made from a recycled kitchen towel... and, now looking at my photos on Flickr, I forgot to upload it this morning before leaving the house.  SO, I will post it later tonight (+ another secret santa gift I received!)

Thank you, spotnik!

I am finally posting picutures of the packages I received on Saturday..

From jagough I got a package with a gift for me and each of my kids

I got the most soft and comfy PJ pants


Adia recieved a super cute headband and not pictured is a Hello Kitty paint by number.


And Landon got the most awesome hat ever!!!! I have had this on my wists for like a yearThank you so much!  We all loved our gifts!

I also received a package from Craftydeb
She sent me supplies!
I love this fabric and don't know what I will do with it.  I am afraid to cut it up and try something in case I screw up!  I want to make a purse, so I think I will try to do one with other fabric as practice.

And then more yarn and fiber!  After this swap I now have a TON of yarn and such that I love!



Thanks so much for picking me!

I received two awesome packages from calluna, who was oh so generous! I will be posting pics on Wednesday. I also mailed the last two of my packages - apologies to those that I'm sending to (I know who you are, but you don't  Grin heh heh). I believe they should be to you by Christmas, however.

Aww I'm jealous!  I was hoping to get some before I leave...but I'm going to UT for christmas and leave tommorrow.  Oh well...more gifts to look forward to when I get home after Christmas.  Whoever is sending to me...don't worry, I set it up so the post office is holding my mail while I'm gone..so no wet packages from the snow....

Ok, I rushed through that mess I was working on...and I have opened my packages.  I just have to say SQUEEEEE!  I have to apologize for the picture quality - I live in Oregon and we haven't had any sun in days.  I took these pics in the brightest part of my house (the hallway) but this prevented me from getting good closeups and from hanging stuff up.  So, sorry about that.

Without further ado, pictures:

First, from CraftyDeb:


A platypus!!!!!!!!!  I collect stuffed platypuses (?) and they all sleep in the bed with me and hubby.  (Weird, I know)  This platypus is made of corduroy and I've decided his name is Horatio.  What you cannot see is that Horatio's feet are stitched with blue thread to match his body.  SO cute.  Horatio is hanging out with me as I type this.  He's snuggly!


PLUS!  Two reusable grocery bags.  I love these!  As you can see, they have ties for easy carrying.  The fabric is just too adorable and makes me smile every time I look at it.

Second, from an unknown Secret Santa:


A monster bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I have wanted one of these for a really long time - since I saw one on here, as a matter of fact.  He is adorable, and the winter coat I wear (a cape actually) is gray, so monster will go perfectly with my cape.  Now I just need a name for him.  Suggestions?   Cheesy

Finally, from another unknown Secret Santa, who tells me he/she tried these two crafts for the first time in making these items for me!  I am sure you will agree, my loot is great:


Handmade paper!  It is beautiful - plenty of pieces of it so I have plenty to play with.  You cannot really see the gorgeous colors, but trust me it is fab.


A t-shirt recon.  I love it - this is one of my fave colors, and it fits very well.


Finally - he/she spoiled me - check out this gorgeous shirt.  A thrift store find, according to my Secret Santa, who clearly has some shopping SKILLS!

Thank you so very much Deb and my other two Secret Santas.  I feel truly spoiled.

And I'd dearly love to know who my Secret Santas are - please?  I think you two deserve some public accolades on this thread, since you rock so much!
