I LOVE IT. I've worn it tons already and let me tell you its perfecttt. The beach holds a special place in my heart and i havent been much this summer cause of work schedules. AND it fits perfectly. I have such a hard time finding bracelets and I have tons that i never wear cause they go half way up my arm before they fit and i look like a three year old who got into her mother's jewelery box. lol. Thank you soooo much phoenix:)

After a slight hold up at the post office, I received from A2K today! Grin I'm a happy girl!


I am so excited! She sent me some fancy (not Red Heart acrylic) yarn! "R2 Fuzzy Felt"  I can't wait to use it! Really, the pictures don't do it justice. It's a really fun mix of a couple yellows. I love it!

A knitting needle roll! My double pointers needed a new home. This is perfect!  Grin


I love the fabric you chose - and the color! Wink


The action shot!

(some had to share a pocket-don't worry, they don't mind one bit- and one set is missing because they're being used at the moment... Smiley)

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You A2K!!! I love it!

I got 2 amazing packages on Monday night.  Unfortunately, I got home from work late that night, and both DH and my live-in BIL failed to mention to me that I got said packages.  Grrr.  So, I found them last night, but then we had this wicked awesome storm that had our power flickering so we kept the computer off all evening.  So, finally I am here to show you my packages.  That I am so happy with!!!!

First off, my package from Padfoot.  She claimed me for a knitted cuff/bracelet and a wisty surprise.  Looky all that she made me!!!!!!

Straight from my wist, these beautiful lacy cuffs.  One in black and one in a very pretty light green.  There is also a matching black crocheted ring.  I'm wearing the green cuff today, which matches my shirt nearly perfectly!




Also, an orange and a brown cabled bracelet.  I just realized I photographed the brown one upside down, which sucks because it's a slighty different pattern than the orange one, but they are both really pretty and well done!




preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '________________________________________________________________________________________________')


I also received a wisty surprise from Spotnik.  

GORGEOUS earrings!!!!  I mean it, they are beautiful!  She used sterling silver for the fittings, since I'm allergic to fake metals (thank you!!!) and she went with this beautiful assortments of stones instead of crystals, which is so perfect for me.  I love them!  She used: Dumortierite, Red Aventurine, Amethyst, Carnelian, Malachite, Rhyolite and Feldspar.  I don't know what half of those are, but apparently they are all things that I like (mental note!)  Cheesy  Anyway, the picture!



I don't know if this makes sense, but I also love the way that they hang.  Like, the direction they present themselves.  They don't hide their own beauty, like some earrings tend to do.  Know what I mean?


Thank you both so much!  What great packages!

I'm glad you like them. I enjoyed making them. I have never knitted cables before so it was nice to learn.


Padfoot, I LOVE the green and black knitted cuffs.  *cough, cough*  heh. 

Great, I have been trying to find a reason to make more.  Cheesy

I received two wonderful packages on Monday -

First, from leighi123 - reusable snack bags in very cute fabrics -- note the painted matryoshka dolls on them:





And from Faux_Valentine some absolutely amazing embroidered bookmarks and a business card holder.  The work on these is seriously incredible:





Thanks ladies!!  You two did amazing work & I feel very spoiled!   Kiss
