Glad You Like it! The fabric is for your quilt if you're still working on it I hope they are big enough to cut your size you want. Glad You Like the Package I had tons of fun making it!

Yes, I am still working on it! I love them!

I'm kinda surprised it isn't here yet either! You sent pretty early...but the border can be a hellhole when it comes to shipping sometimes. They're probably all sitting there trying to figure out what it is.

I received my surprise ball quite a few days ago but have been busy with school. Sorry for the delay in pictures.  Here is my ball from adrienne_bowers.

the ball all wrapped up

the seashell is now my toddler's treasure.  the round porcelain like circle is a lovely pin.  

My daughter will love the little grow pills.  We haven't tried them out yet.  the cupcake barrette is cute.

the birdie cell phone charm is sweet.  Aria already used up the stickers.  

this fishie clay press thingie intrigues me.

pretty little ring

thanks for the surprise ball.

I know that adrienne also received from me quite a bit ago so I am going to go ahead and post what I sent to her as well since I am already online.


Here is the ball I sent to her.  It looked a tad different because I decided to push the pink silk cord into the ball.  I didn't want her to cut it by mistake...since its actually a part of a surprise that is hidden inside the ball.


I searched on her etsy favs and found that she liked these little surprise gumball machine toys.  Also its sitting on a small roll of decorative tape.


I also included these penguin stickers...but I cut them into smaller portions and hid them throughout the ball.


Some vintage glass buttons


She also had a bunch of vintage Avon pin on her etsy favs so I included the Avon dog pin and those are two robot "clippie do dads"...


Some cabochons...mostly flowers...the deer were on her etsy favs


Here come the start of the crafted goods...a flower cabochon ring


a resin sprinkles necklace with silk cord (the one I didn't want her to cut) and a tile necklace coated with resin for protection


bottlecap resin magnets and the resin sprinkles star magnet (she had resin candy items on her etsy favs)

And that is it. Hopefully, the goods were enjoyed.

rlynn, do the candies in the resin melt at all and color the resin? I may have to try that one of these days.

Nice package!

I've cast candy sprinkles in resin before. It's super easy and looks really neat! You just have to make sure that all the sprinkles are fully coated in the resin -- like none of them sticking out at any point -- and they seem to stay fine Smiley No running or decaying.

I'm glad you like it!  That was my very first counted cross stitch.  It's from the Ed Hardy cross stitch book.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?
