Today was a beautiful day!  (Even tho it was 30 in central Florida this morning.)  After all my errands I got to come home to a myb package waiting to be opened. (I'll post pics after I get the girl to sleep)

sorry i am tardy to the thread, but knitpurl, i am so glad it got to you relatively intact and that you like everything!  the iron was a last-minute impulse and i realized later it's probably the wrong-shaped plug for you, but it was just so tiny and cute!!

I knit. I sew. I paint by number.  I use power tools.  I am a pretty tough broad.

I received the day before thanksgiving, what a treat! But due to a family plague things have been too hectic too post. Til now!

Unraveling was SO much fun, it was fingering weight yarn for the first ball and took forever! We ended up putting it in a basket and my husband unraveled while I wound. It looked like a fish flopping around in the basket, especially with the big beads that looked like eyeballs!

She sent a lot of stuff, mostly handmade! Here's the bulk:

There are shrinkydink stitch markers, different kbeads, two lovely jingly bracelets and some matching earrings, two sugar skull keychains, pop rocks and a pez-like candy skull thing. Also some laminated bookmarks and coasters with drinks and desserts on them like you find in a restaurant.

Also an adorable owl plushie for my son:

and a tea wallet:

The big gift was what I thought was a hat for my son, and when I told her how he's been wearing it everywhere and it fits perfectly, she was like "What hat? I didn't make a hat!" Turns out it was supposed to be a monster toilet paper topper from my wist! LOL But see for yourself, it's adorable as a hat too!


Not sure why the images using the photobucket widget are small.. :/
She sent the things I REALLY wanted even though I gave her a lot of ideas (I think) so I am super pleased. I couldn't be happier Rosie, thanks so much!!

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

Another fantastic yarn ball - and even if it wasn't made as a hat, it looks great! (And you have a gorgeous son raennn  Smiley)

Vanessa_Nichole - doesn't matter about the plug, I can get an adapter really easily, and anyway, it is *so* cute.  Cheesy

Nope, it hasn't :/ I seem to be living in some sort of mail blackspot at the moment, because I'm waiting on heaps of parcels and nothing's arriving! I will let you and the gallery know as soon as it arrives, I promise.
