Thank you all, especially LimeRiot, for being patient with me about putting pictures up.  I really loved getting this package.  Everything was neatly wrapped in tissue paper and labeled with an order to open them in.  It was such fun!  The first thing I opened amazed me and made me smile!  

A sweet little bottlecap pincushion with shrinky-dink flower pin toppers!!!!!


The next thing was just as amazing:  A felt journal cover for those nifty composition books you can find on the cheap!  This is straight off my wist and I love it!!!!



Next?  Why, two awesome embroidered pillowcases!  One has flowers and the other trees, because LR's hubby told her guys don't like to sleep on flowers.  P-shaw!  He's lucky to sleep, I say.  Cheesy  But the resulting cases ARE lovely!


 

These were hard to photograph.  Here are a couple of close-ups so you can see the exquisite detail.


 

After that came something I've been longing for!  She made me a circular needle roll.  It's simply beautiful with its linen, navy and bright green color scheme.  I LOVE it!

 

Finally, there was this cute pouch:
 

And tucked inside was this awesome skein of hand-dyed yarn LimeRiot bought at the Farmer's Market!



You are not just and ANGEL, LimeRiot!  You are one heck of a good stalker!  You nailed it!  Thank you so much!
