I received from sewingcybermom on Tuesday - I was so spoiled!

She sent me both tea and espresso - plus little demitasse (sp?) cups and an espresso maker!  This is especially awesome because I have one, but the handle broke off so it's been very dangerous to use - I risk burning the crap out of myself and spill half my coffee every time I use it...


I also got some knitting needles/supplies and two skeins of lovely brown alpaca wool - along with a picture of the alpaca that provided the wool!


Two pairs of fleece slippers - I need to know what pattern these were made from - my husband would love some, and my daughter loves them too!


And finally, an adorable mug rug (I needed something to put drinks on so bad - my kid destroyed all the coasters we had!) and a beautiful patchwork scarf from my wists - I love the colors and materials she chose for these as well!


And because it was cute - the pic I took of my rotten kid "helping" me unpack the box - notice how she immediately stole the green slippers!

Those felt slippers are great!  What a cutie pie you daughter is!

The scarf and mug rug are gorgeous!  The colors are perfect!

Also, love the PJ's and the hand warmers you got kayrun!  The fabric is so lovely!

Wow.  So it's been a crazy week (or two).  I'm just getting to post my photos now.  I received my amazing package from Kayrun on Monday, and am so ridiculously happy.  Here's the photos:

The Scarf is just amazing.  I LOVE IT.  The color is perfect, and it has just a little variation in color, so pretty.  And then the pattern!  Oh!  SO AWESOME!


The coffee:


The mug coaster: (I don't have a pic of the wash cloth - it went into my bathroom that night.  It's a pretty minty green color!)


And the most adorable card:



And, just for you Kayrun: Good thing you don't have allergies.  Because I simply couldn't have done those PJ pants by myself.  Nope, not without the help of .... PHOEBE!  Without her trying to eat the heat packs, my sewing machine cords & the iron, and sitting in the middle of the fabric the second I try to cut it, it just wouldn't have been possible.  (Actually, it would have been much easier, but nowhere near as cute.)

LOL
The bunny is just too cute, isn't she?
alwaysinmyroom, if you are on Ravelry, here's a link to my project page for the scarf:
http://www.ravelry.com/projects/kayrun/russet
and for anyone who is not a member there:
http://www.fortheloveofstitches.typepad.com/patterns/
(but I would recommend converting some of the edge stitches to garter
instead of so much stockinette....tend s to roll a bunch!)
It was a fun knit & not too hard~~
I'm in love with that yarn & might have to whip up one for myself as well!

I haven't tried the tea...I got it from here https://thehillteabar.com/hill-tea-bars-custom-blend-tea I just thought it looked interesting  Cheesy

Actually the Dotee cozy was made on a knitting loom that I made myself...I was so excited because I've tried to crochet a million times and I just plain can't...once I learned how easy it was to use a knitting loom, I made two. But then I caved and bought the kit (oh man do I love 50% AC Moore coupons!!)

I'm so happy that you've already used the yarn! That hat looks awesome!!

I received today from RhymeswOrange! She sent such a lovely package and I can't wait to try the tea!  (I'm actually heating up a pot right now  Grin)  I'll post pics in the morning when there is more light.
