My turn!  I received from bunnyboo on Friday.



Mary Janes!  I love Mary Jane slippers.  These are a good fit and nice and snuggly.



A cute neckwarmer in the same yarn fastened with a lovely brooch (close up coming)



Hard to get a good shot of this.  It's actually lilac.



Some yummy handspun yarn that needs to become fingerless gloves sometime soon (bunnyboo says it's only her second ball of yarn, I find that hard to believe!)  It's not as bright as in the picture.  Also some great stitch markers that I can use for knitting and crochet.  And an added extra, some rainbow strips of shiny paper to make those origami stars.

THANK YOU BUNNYBOO!!  It's been great swapping with you.  I hope you like your package as much as I like mine!

What great purple packages!  I love the flower purse and the mary janes.

I forgot one thing!  Miss Barbara also sent me a little crocheted basket.  My partner absconded with it right away to use for his dice.  So there's no picture of it, but her crocheting is so sturdy!  Thanks again!

I received from my lovely partner, Innaura, today.  She had mentioned that "good things come in small packages" and she was SO right!  She put together an awesome package of FIVE JEWELRY PIECES, and they are ALL ORANGE!  She also sent a beautiful card with a teriffic note and a dragonfly (one of my favorites) on the front.

I unfortunately cannot take and post photos, so I hope she does soon, b/c my words will not do these pieces justice: 
-A bracelet with what looks to be orange pearl beads, two at a time, with silver findings...
-A bracelet with orange seed beads and four 'Pandora' type beads, with silver findings...
-One of those adjustable, wrap-around bracelets, with large and medium orange beads, the metal is silver...
-An orange TOL!  And the trunk of the tree has an itty-bitty knot in it!
-An extremely interesting necklace made out of many different types of beads, silver findings, with an orange owl on the end and a piece of what looks like orange sea glass!

I am just in awe of all of this and the talent and the unique beads and styling!  If I could get away with wearing it all at once, I would!  THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Miss Barbara, I'm just so glad you like everything!  I adore making jewelry and working in all ORANGE was so much fun!  What a great color it is, it makes me happy.

I have the pics of what I made!

Here are the three bracelets: the wrap bracelet on top, with the big chunky orange beads, to the left is the double seed bead chain with the four Pandora style beads, and to the right across the bottom is the orange freshwater pearl bracelet (that seriously reminds me of creamsicles!):


Here is the necklace, I'm so sad the wire didn't work-harden as much as I wanted!  But I like the rest of it, and the silver charms on it were right off of Miss Barbara's wist!  I noticed them right away and thought, hey, I have those!  It is orange "sea glass"-- not actually worn by the sea, but it's the same effect-- and when I saw the little orange owl I was so happy, because Miss Barbara said she likes owls:


The best TOL I ever made!  I only wish I had clearer pictures.  I put a tiny knot in the tree trunk and it's so cute!  


So glad you like it, Miss Barbara!   Cheesy

I agree, I keep on looking at the orange jewelry and am amazed at the intricacy of it...I don't know how she does it!
