Now it's my turn. ^^

I received my package from littlebluegirl yesterdayand I'm so amazed! Everything is so awesome. My partner stalked me very well.  Cheesy

My verb was "dance".

First everything together. Look at this pink and glittery card. ^^ Most of the things are pink! my inner child is squealing in joy.  Grin



A crocheted belly dancer poppet. There was a similar poppet on craftster and littlebluegirl was so sweet and made me this version of it. She can even turn her head. I love the hair, I can't stop playing with it. ^^ My sister said she looks like Shakira. Oh, and the purple wool is sooo soft. I love her. ^^



"Yarn & hooks for your hands to dance while making beautiful creations"
Littlebluegirl sent me two skeins of the yarn she used for the doll's hair, but in pink. And how did you know I wanted a hook holder? Look at this beautiful fabric. And the seems are so neat. I wish I could sew so good.



And inside are crochet hooks. I don't have hooks in these sizes, so you just chose the right ones. The biggest one has blue glitter in it, and with the bubbles it looks like water. ^^
On this pic you can also see my "earrings to dance in my ears". I nearly forgot to photograph them. What you can't see well, they're covered with black rhinestones. They're perfect! I wore them yesterday to my goth hippie outfit. (Yes, goth hippie, it's kinda weird, but it's just like me.)



Littlebluegirl, I thank you so very very much! I love absolutely everything! You made me so happy.

By the way, what is that little paper thing? A little version of a notebook?  ^^;

Ahh, Lionne, I'm so glad that you're happy with your package!  I like the picture you took of the doll dancing, may I borrow it for a separate post?  My boyfriend said he thought it looked like Shakira too!!  Smiley  I was so pleased with how the hair turned out, I'd never done anything like that before.  I really wanted to make you that poppet, but I didn't think my sewing skills would do it justice and I managed to find a similar looking crochet doll base on Ravelry and I made up the clothes myself.

I think I read that you wanted a crochet hook roll in one of your Craftster posts, and of course, I couldn't leave it empty Smiley  I'm glad I sent you sizes you don't already have.  From your posts, I saw that you were a fan of PINK too.

It is just a tiny notebook, I got a load of them from somewhere (Etsy, I think) and because it was pink, and I happened to spot it in my paper drawer while I was making your card, I just popped it in the box at the last minute.

Excitingly, I think my package from you is waiting at the sorting office.  It closes at 1pm so I'll have to wait until the morning to go and pick it up.

Of course you can use the photo! ^^
And I really don't mind you crocheted Mini-Shakira.You still put a lot of work in it. For me. ^^ Thank you.

As I said, you did an awesome job at stalking.  Grin Everything is absolutely perfect.

I'm a bit worried you will be disappointed by the things I made for you. I just tried some things I've never made before. But I guess it's just low self-esteem.

Oh NO, I did forget the cape!  Parker will love it I'm sure.  I'm going to leave it at my house....or as he says it, Addie's house.  Did your package come in today??

I got it!  I managed to be patient and not rip it open outside the sorting office, but I did do it on the train this morning Smiley  I received a lovely package from Lionne and I really want to post pictures tonight but it's very grey and rainy here in England and so the light is terrible.

Lionne, I love what you sent and I'm feeling cosy and relaxed already wearing your creations Smiley

Pictures tomorrow!

Here we go!  My verb was to relax.


Comfy pants made from a nice soft jersey fabric.  These were one of the things I really wanted.  I wore these to bed last night.  Lionne stitched them BY HAND!  She must have the patience of a saint and the stitching is perfect!


Slippers!  I love slippers and these are so warm and comfy.A perfect fit, too.  They're ridged on the bottom to massage my feet as I walk.


A bath mitt, some relaxing shower gel, a face mask, green tea, scented tealights and holder and incence sticks.  Perfect for a nice, chilled night in.


And someone who isn't relaxed, my cat Harlequin enjoying her new catnip toy!

Thank you so much Lionne, I've really enjoyed swapping with you.

Littlebluegirl, those pants look so comfy! You lucky girl!

I received from Arumfield! Here's my Nourishing goodies:

First up, NOM NOMS! These fruit strips are so good. I really should make my own but why should I when I get Arummy as a partner?


My own cookery book, including a few recipes I get to try. Zucchini fries are on the menu tonight!


I do hate those pesky produce plastic bags at the G-store. Rummy made me some reusables! I need to make more, I buy lots of veggies.


And placemats to serve all this nourishment on:


Thanks, RedRummy!

Sooooo happy you like everything.  Smiley 

Along with your verb Nourish, the other word going thru my head the entire time was Useable.  The placemats are duel purpose because they are the perfect size for napkins.  Smiley  I would have made more veggie bags but organza is a B**** to work with!  Never again!!!!

Littlebluegirl, the pants look so good on you. ^^ I was so afraid they wouldn't fit.

Btw, I took a pic of the slippers inside out so you can see the ridges.
