I received an AMAZING Grin package from indigo_roses yesterday!!!!! But before I get to the pics I just want to say how wonderful it is to look through this gallery! The TM stuff is great. I love the altered owl tin (I have some friends who could use that, lol). The heart hoop is just beautiful and the comma hoop is hilarious!

Now onto the goods.....first here is the whole package

(She sent some beautiful fabric and paper as extras. Also, as extras chocolate (yummy!) and a prototype of a amigurumi bunny she is working on).

Here is a shot of all the amigurumi. I have wanted some for a long time (I don't crochet), so I was really excited to get so many. I love the ocean theme!

(Bonus the clam can come out of its shell!)

The octopus and lobster are super cute.


A stenciled Harry Potter themed shirt.


Finally, a beautiful shrug!!!!! I put it on as soon as I opened the box and did not want to take it off! I just love it! indigo_roses said it was the first time she has made crocheted clothing, which is incredible because the shrug turned out prefect!




Thank you so much indigo_roses! I LOVED everything you sent! Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin

What a great shrug!  You'll have to go shopping for a new dress to wear it with.  Oh darn!

I received a wonderful package from the wonderful onegroovyday today!  Remember how she was teasing us with hints about sewing a bazillion little things into one big thing?  Well here it is:  a fabulous TM-style bag!

Here's the front.  The orange patch at the top is embroidered with "follow your heart".


Here's the back.  I adore the colors and all the different patches, which incorporate many of my favorite things:  cats, coffee, hearts, chickens, sewing, and birds!


Here's the inside--love that lining fabric!  And you can see the chicken patch on the side.


Here's the other side panel; she embroidered our username initials on the upper patch!  I love that!


Look what else she made me:  an armchair pincushion!  I requested this, and I'm excited to have it now (I really could have used it while sewing your quilt, ogd!).  The front has two pockets made from fabric selvedges!

This is how it will look draped over the arm of my chair (while is too messy right now to take an actual action shot!)


Stretched out:


The back has beautiful patchwork:


AND I got my very first hoopla!  Hooray!  I can start a hoopla wall now!  She used the quote from my profile.  The hearts are all different beautiful fabrics; the stitching is beautiful too.


AND she sent a big stack of paperless towels (to use instead of paper towels in the kitchen).  I love the bird print on the flannel.  These were on my pinterest, and I'm so excited to have them in my kitchen!


Last but not least is this beautiful tiny heart filled with french knots. OGD says she was in a french knot mood that day--I guess so!  I will display it with my felt badge collection (it does have felt on the back!)


Thank you so much for everything, Mindy--it feels like Christmas and my birthday combined!  You are a wonderful, generous, and talented partner, and I loved swapping with you!!

That shrug is so beautiful!  And the little ami friends are so cute.  I think I love the lobster the most.  ^_^

Wowie, that is one awesome package!  That bag is so awesome!!!  I fall more and more in love with Teesha Moore stuff every time I see a new item!

In other news, both packages from my wonderful swap partners redstar13 and teachart said that they are out for delivery today!  YAY YAY!!!!!  Its gonna be a good night tonight!  ^_^
