Alrighty! FINALLY posting pics from my amazingly awesome package from atsuko! Please bear with me, new digi camera and 7 year old computers hooked up to our TV make photo editing programs difficult!

First of all, let me say that all of these cuts of fabric were very generous. Like, 1 to even 3 yards for most pieces, which is really great for me because that's what I am short on-- I have lots of fat quarters and such, but I was really needing some new fabrics, and to get yardage was such a blessing.

From left to right, a pretty grass green cotton, 2 yards of super cute printed corduroy, and a gorgeous deep green velour-type fabric. Picture definitely doesn't do it justice here


Home decor weight pretty print, another shade of green cotton (I use a LOT of green, so that's perfect!), and a pretty flannel print


Gorgeous red floral print that needed its own picture--- I've never made clothing, but this makes me really want to make something wearable out of it.


Pretty, vintage piece. It's so delicate.


Last but certainly not least, interfacing!!!!


All weights and sizes.

And because she's totally awesome (it's true), atsuko made me five pairs of beautiful earrings and a pendant. I LOVE them!



I have already worn three pairs since opening my box on Monday!  Cheesy I am an earrings girl, it's rare to see me without them. I wear scrubs that are blue and brown on Tuesdays, and have never had a pair of earrings that went with them just right. Until now.



Thank you sooo much, you were so generous, I love everything. Smiley

I gave the Box to my friend today!  I told her last night about her surprise, but wouldn't tell her what it was.  She hates when I do that.  I love it.. Cheesy   Anyway,  She says it will all go to good use!

There's a bit of clothing appropriate materials, all in nice chunks too!  All of them more then 1 a meter, some a lot more then a meter, it's awesome!  And some kid type fabric.  Which she just told me the other day she wants to learn how to quilt, so she's got the makings of a few good lap quilts there too!

Pictures!
Here She is cutting into the box (with the pretty tape Smiley)


All the goods lain out:



One happy sewing newb! (okay, she's not so much a newb, as someone who hasn't done a lot of sewing in the recent past, and didn't have a stash.  Now she does!)



Thank you so much Chris Sews!!

I received my thank you from thelastkodama yesterday! Please excuse my lazyness. I took the pic in front of the laptop and part of it is in te shadow. I got some awesome hairbows. One is on a ponytail holder, with buttons to look like buckyeyes, and the other is on a barrette. There's also a button buckeye on a bobby pin. LOVE THEM!!! She also noticed I'm collecting license plates and sent me one from Vermont. Thanks!!!

I received from princess blueberry  a couple days ago, and let me say, she is AWESOME! She sent me soooo much! Cheesy
First off, the box pretty much exploded when I opened it. It was so packed with stuff, and so heavy!

All the lovely yarn; it's super soft!

An awesome little soap making starter kit! I've always wanted to learn how to do this! Looks like the family is getting some wonderful soap for Christmas this year! lol

A very interesting beeswax candle kit and a loofah.

Lots of embroidery floss, hurray!

a LOT a beads, it's like the bead soup swap all over again!

I could not get a good enough pic of these, no matter how hard I tried. but I LOOOOVVVE the dolphin beads!!! They are some of the favorite beads she sent!

A close up of some SUPER cute 'pony' beads!

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH PRINCESSBLUEBERRY! I feel super spoiled!

Could everybody please take a look at the first page of this thread and see if you are up to date.  I just went through every post of the gallery and checked every DC or tracking number I had been given and did those updates.  I have to say that while most of you have been awesome about PMing with updates, a lot of you have not.  It takes 5 seconds to PM "I received from fill in the blank" or I sent to fill in the blank today".  Spare a thought to your poor organizer and her extreme lack of free time.   Grin
