Here is my towel from Strawberryh! I love the colors and how you put the hedgehogs on! I think my DH would approve the small amount of Hello Kitty. He does not understand why I need a Hello Kitty waffle maker.
Thanks so much! Hope you love your package!  Grin

I am sending you the other half of your package tomorrow I sent them separate to protect things from the 10 month old puppy who is is waist high and barks. I can't have anything laying around at all she manages to find things I thing are safe and chew on them (were working on that) So this package is to be continued...
The Hedge hogs are just appliqued. I found a drawing I thought would look cute I printed it in the size I liked then cut it out as a pattern. and traced it on to fabric and cut them out and sewed then on with a little muslin for the snout.
I searched you wists and other things and found you liked them and Hello kitty and had a wave quilt listed and so I combined the three glad you like it.

I made a baby blanket with the new wave patten and made my first dish mat with the same template. Its a cool template that is easy to cut out.

While Sillybowtie is waiting for the rest of Her package to arrive (which I sent out Yesterday) I revived my Package
1st every thing together. There is the drying cloth (With a really cool strawberry on it), a tea wallet and tea holder and foam hand wash smells yummy

Now a little break down, she put her favorite tea in the Wallet. ONE: I LOVE TEA! TWO: I DIDN'T OWN A TEA WALLET
I kept planing on making myself one and I just never seem to get around to it. I have a Stevia packet holder but not a tea wallet. Well now I do. I am making Jasmin tea in my 3 Quart Ice tea maker as I am typing this.

SEE LOTS OF TEA HERE.

The back of the Drying cloth is a really cool pattern too.

When I was unwrapping stuff this is how the Strawberry looked. I couldn't for the life of me think of what it was for.... Then it hit me it was a topper for the Hand soap.


I have to say my Husband even thought the whole package was cool. (he doesn't hate strawberries as long as I don't decorate the bedroom with them.)   Roll Eyes Great Package I loved everything.

I am glad you love your package! I loved shopping for you and surprised how much strawberry I found.  Save the adapter for the strawberry pump for the non foaming soap containers. I was going to get the strawberry soap but did not want it overpower you with strawberry. (They did not have gnome themed)

Did you like the jasmine tea? I have been drinking the white wrapper tea since I was 4. A neighbor bought me a loose leaf container of the same brand and she told me that if I drink this it will make me beautiful. The other kind is a good substitute for when I cannot make it to Chinese market. My DH and in-laws think I am crazy on how specific I am on my tea.

Thanks for the idea for the sugar packets, I am going to make them for my splenda friends and family. I try to make everyone at least one homemade gift for Christmas. Now I need to think of an idea for the guys!

Part 2 of my package came today. I was surprised because it said it would be here on Monday!
Included is a pot scrubber (I have been looking for a replacement for the ones I used to get at Ikea), homemade scrubber flower (DH has been banned from using this), set of 12 surged napkins/drying towels, and a really cool sponge that is eco friendly!
Now I need to cook something to use all of my cool swag!

I loved the Jasmin tea. I was surprise at how nice it worked as an Ice tea Nice under tones of flavor. I am a tea snob too but I am the same about most of my foods.
When I first made a set of the Cloth Un paper towels for the house My husband shook his head and said "Really?". But we use them over paper plate holders and as mug rugs and lots of places plus they are good for cleaning up things. We use a lot less paper napkins and paper towel with them around I keep mine folded up in the napkin holder in the kitchen. Hope you get some good use out of them. I love my Dish Mat Thanks again.

It sounds like they are cloth napkins.  I use cloth napkins more as well.  You can find them at thrift stores for a real deal.

Yeah!  I received my package today and I can't believe how perfectly it matches my kitchen decor! 


I love the applique on the dish mat!  The dish towel with the recipe will get good use with 2 little kids, and I the potato bag is great.  I also got 2 wine stoppers (which I needed) and a tea steeper (I love tea). 

Did I mention how nice everything matches my kitchen?!?  Take a look at my sink rug


Thank you, I love everything!

I am so pleased that you liked your pkg.  I sent my uncle his birthday gifts the same day I sent yours. He liked the shorts I made him out of some Happy Birthday fabric I got from Joann and the raider's scarf.  I am 2 for 2 with glad tidings on the pkgs I sent!! That is amazing that I choose the right colors.  WOW!!!  Grin Cheesy
