So glad you liked everything Baloo  Grin
I didn't know if it would be too big or not, I kind of made up the pattern as I went along (actually, I think part of the pattern was written on the box I posted) I got the idea from a picture on geek crafts.
The pattern for the scarf was taken from here
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238536.msg2618806#msg2618806
Very easy to follow.

I'm so sorry I haven't posted pictures of the things you sent me. For some reason my ancient and very hard working laptop won't let me upload anything  Undecided I absolutely love everything, thank you for a very thoughtful package. Richard thinks the train is brill. He carries it everywhere we go and has even stopped strangers in the street to look at it.
 
Yes, everything is amazing! Thankyou every so much!
I have quite a big head so it fits nicely not too loose or too tight.
Glad you like the package I sent, Glad he likes the train, I saw it in The Works and just had to get it him. Grin

hey, Baloo?
Did you happen to take any pics before you mailed the pkg off?
Maybe you could share a few until FrankSp
gets some uploaded?
Just a thought
(can you tell I am super excited to see this pkg???)
LOL

O.K so here are the pictures of the ace things I got from Baloo. Again so sorry for the delay (I had words with little laptop and she's seems to be in a better mood - for the time being)
Here's the lot


C- for chocolate cake pops (not pictured = can you guess why? yum yum)
A- for a jar of air with pincushion (extra handy)
T- for trains for my son, he's mad on them (picture coming up)
H- for felt Houses (pinterest inspired Smiley)
E- for Ed Hardy candle
R- for red bow hair band
I- for indigo glass beads (love these, I can see me hoarding them for years not wanting to waste them  Roll Eyes)
N- for Namco-pacman hoopla (again from my pinterest)
E- for owl earrings (my Mum will be getting these for Christmas, unless I change my mind and keep them which is very likely)

Close up of hoopla, the first I have received and a very good start too.



Owl earrings...



Boy boy with his new train (he really does love it, ignore the expression)



And a gratuitous cute shot, I actually haven't been able to wear the headband yet as babyface has hidden it



Worth the wait I think x

TA-DA!!!!!!!!!!!

and inside the pouch....

I rec'd my fab pkg from my wonderful partner, mermaidcafe!!

Everything is fantastic, and she got my tastes spot on!  You must be quite the stalker, mermaidcafe!  I am totally blown away!!

So, my name is Karen and she sent:

K = knitted scarf   (have been wanting to make myself one of these braided scarves forever, but never got around to it -- love, love

A = Amethyst beads .....so pretty!  I'll have to talk my friend into making me some stitch markers or earrings for my dd -- lovely!  (I only scanned 1 of them in my pic bec. I was worried they would all go rolling away across the scanner  Smiley

R = Random extras.....love the K button, and I always need another notepad!  The nest pendants are WONDERFUL....I am crazy about them!  and another cute lil bird pendant plus I love the little pouch!

E = Envelopes &

N = Notecard set  super cute -- she knows that I love love birdies and did a great job!

and she also made my last initial,
G = Glass sea pendant....this is astounding....so smooth and just perfect in every way!!

Thank you so so much, mermaidcafe!  I hope yours arrives SOON!!

so glad that you like your package kayrun!  I had a lot of fun putting it together Smiley  Very happy to hear that you like the scarf - it took me a while to pick colours for it, but I was happy with the result.  The yarn is so soft and nice to work with - I've since bought more of it!
FYI the sea glass is very local - I found it while camping here!  A little bit of BC for you Smiley
