Woo hoo! My package arrived from Miss Barbara!!

She sent this fun can with a woodsy theme (I love threes.)

Included in my package was a fantastic water bottle holder - very useful for any outdoor adventure!

A beach bag embellished with lots of beads around the top and various beach-themed patches -

And many other goodies: very sweet Starfish Amigurumi (so cute!), flower pin, embellished journal and a gorgeous beaded bookmark (loved these colors!).

And on top of that! She included many other fun goodies: very yummy mints, ice cream cards, Nemo keychain, ice cream stamp, fish purse, and ice cream pencil (why, yes, I do love some ice cream!)

Group shot!

Thank you so much Miss Barbara for this great package!

You know, I don't remember where I got the pattern for the water bottle holder, but it is easy enough to do w/o one.  Just crochet a circle for the bottom, and then when it looks big enough, create a mesh stitch around the circle as high as you want it to be and crochet the handle.  I don't think I followed the pattern 100% anyhow, I think I made some modifications to it.

I received today from sparrowarms and I am so happy, because I love everything so much! Beware... there are a lot of pictures, because I got excited! OK, so when I first opened the package, this is what I saw:



How amazing! It's decorated like a tree with a little sock monkey attatched. The sock monkey has my username embroidered on it and is so perfect. I love the colours. I think I will name her Sparrow, in honour of you sparrowarms! Ok, here are a ton more pictures...







Ok, and these are all the goodies from inside the can + the one bigger item we agreed to do.



Everything is so pretty. And now for close ups...





The bag is gorgeous and I love the fabric. I couldn't decide what pic to post, so I posted both, lol! Ok next we have a bookmark, postcard (which I collect) and a heart button and earrings set.



My pictures are rubbish, they really don't show the vibrant colours of the bookmark. Anyway, here's the other side of the bookmark (couldn't choose what side to show, so I showed both, hehe, can you see a recurring theme?) and a scarf belt, which is so 'me'!



Action shot of ring and earrings. I don't have my ears pierced, but for some reason I felt they should still be in the picture.  Grin



Alice in Wonderland badges, which I love!




And the large item, is a wonderful embroidered hoop, which goes absolutely perfectly with the colours of my room. Love, love, love it!



Ok, now I think that's enough pics!

Thanks so, so much sparrowarms, you made me a very happy bunny this morning!  Grin

Yay! I'm so, so glad you liked it all, I had so much fun making it all!

You are very, very welcome!

P.S. the squishy tree top was supposed to be a pin cushion Wink

I love the items in the package!  But, I think you win the award for the most clever Pringle can design/idea EVER!  How cute is that???!!!  And I have to tell you, I really don't like sock monkeys at all, but I LOVE that one!  (He looks so kind and friendly!) Grin

Oh, I didn't realise that! It makes it even better!  Smiley
