The flowers are pompoms on sticks (like, tree branch sticks). I don't know if she made them herself or not, but they are some of the softest, prettiest pompoms I've ever seen.

I don't know how to make pompoms myself, but I have a couple winter hats that I could scalp the balls off of to add to my bouquet. Wink

Before I post my pics from my INCREDIBLE package I wanted to thank you all for the nice complements about the package I sent.... I have pom pom makers (really just a very fancy contraction to hold the yarn while you wrap it)... you can use your hand... wrap the yarn around your palm, remove it , tie in the center and then cut and shape the connections... I like the pom pom makers ( I have 4 sizes) because who does not love pompoms!  The flowers are from some soft multi-colored yarn I got on clearance at Jo-Ann's last year......


OK my next post is going to be my package... IT IS UNBELIEVABLE!

I'm glad you like everything, C. You know how awesome I think you are. Smiley

Here're the pictures I took of the needlework case before I sent. I borrowed my mom's supplies to make it the correct size. She liked it so much she'll be getting one for her birthday.

The front. Velcro closure. The back has one large pocket to hold thread, patterns, and whatever. I just LOVE that fabric. When I saw who my partner was I knew I had to use it.


The inside. Modeled after nostephot's Wist and my own imagination.

lol- the fabric and needlework case didn't fit... I swaddled the cans in fabric... they sort of looked like a lumpy baby by the time I was through. Smiley

And thanks for the nice comments, guys.
