Ready for more pictures of the goodies I received from my super secret santa?
Well, I must say that she's a nifty ninja stalker and brilliant crafter...everything she made for me is p-e-r-f-e-c-t!  Shocked


A patchwork purse!  I adore all things patchwork and I love purses.  This is so well made.  I will have the best purse come Spring 2012!




My secret santa knows that I'm a nerd by trade, so she sent me a couple of cute chemistry-themed fabrics from Spoonflower.  Nerdelicious!




And this was what smelled so divine when I first opened the box...lavender scented felted soaps!  I'm partial to anything lavender...and did I mention that this smells soooo good?




A gorgeous wet felted scarf that is dyed in gorgeous hues!  I can't wait for the weather to get cold enough for scarves because this will be a favourite this winter Smiley




Pretty nesting fabric boxes!  I've been wanting to make some for myself...oh, for the longest time Tongue  I'm stoked that someone finally made these for me.  They will be wonderful for storing WIPs in my craftroom Cheesy




A trio of well-detailed, dimunitive felted houses that are just perfect in every way...I love them!




Fiber! Fiber! Fiber!  Rovings dyed with natural dyes (walnut, brazilwood and weld).  The colours are amazing!




And last but not least, choccies and the wonderful resist-dyed cotton fabrics and trims that were used to wrap some of the goodies (which I intend to save and re-use or sew something cool with) Smiley




THANK YOU SECRET SANTA (YOU-KNOW-WHO-YOU-ARE Wink) FOR SENDING A BUNCH OF AWESOME CRAFTS!  YOU ROCK!!!  Kiss

Awesome goodies!!!   Cheesy  I had my suspicions about who your secret santa must be when I saw the fabric wrappings that looked hand dyed.  Wink   But they were solidified with the natural dyed rovings and that scarf.   It has to be Ptarmic wumpus!   Cheesy

Definitely Ptarmic!! 

Love all the goodies so far, but esp drooling over the knitted washclothes, owl bunting, nested boxes, and the geek fabrics!!

Our gallery is off to a fantastic start!!  Man, I am so tempted to open now.  Ack!!

dye+sewing+felting=ptarmic wumpus in my book.  I think we all know each other far too well....

I agree, it is soooooo hard not to tear open those shiny green packages Cheesy

I've been feeling under the weather the past couple of days so what could be better medicine than to tear open some shiny packages!  Wow secret STS santa, you have sent me a ton of awesome!!   Please excuse my pictures, the winter light is not so awesome these days...
First I opened the cutest trio of crochet ornaments, a Jack skelly, a cute gnome and a heart


Then a fabulous green leafy scarf and some anatomical heart magnets!


Awesome scrappy, sparkly leggings (I am wearing them still, so warm!) and a gorgeous apron!


There was also a bag of Lindor truffles....was Wink  Thank you so much for the wonderful goodies Secret Santa....now I know who you are and you know who you are, how about the rest of you!?!

I recieved my secret santa a couple of days ago, and since you had all opened yours, I decided to open up too!!!!
Here are the wrapped goodies:

First I opened the smaller gifts:

They were some 2.5" squares for my i_spy quilt and a leaf bookmark (I read all the time, but I have a terrible habbit of loosing bookmarks!
Then I opened a big one:

I have a huge hoopla wall , so it is great to add another. My secret santa is not usually a hoopla participant so she wasn't sure how to finish the hoop, but I don't mind as I might steel the cool green hoop as my working hoop and put on a simpler wooden hoop!
Then came my absolute favourite:

A hoopla project bag. I've already used it on a recent outing with the family. The design on top is embroidered and is inspire by my pintrest too  Grin
Inside:

Mrs Santa included the hoop, and I have my scissors and threads already stored in there.
And the back so you can see the great blue and yellow material she selected.


Also hidden inside the hoopla project bag were 2 more packages containing the buttons and the cool insect buttons that are pictured above.

Thank you so much to my secret santa. Can you guess who made all this?
