ha ha -- you are not alone, kayrun.  I did the very same thing!

The original on her Pinterest had the sashing between the letters a bit smaller so the word was a little easier to read Cheesy

True...but I like that it's harder to read...ya know, so that I can display that in my office Wink

I received my package today! From Feline2001 and It is A-MA-ZING!

This is how everything was wrapped. It made me feel like it was my birthday in March!

This is everything together. Check out that sweet card with Feline2001 original photograph on it.

Something local knitting magazines from the UK one even came with a set of DPNs!

Something funny. It Itches by Franklin Habit! It is funny if anyone hasn't read it you should!

The senders choice was some lavender bath creams. I left them in the bag because they feel fragile

She also sent me a few extras. Some engraving board which I love and haven't done since high school and this one is gold! All we had in high school was black and white. Also some chocolates you can see in the first picture.

I think I am going to name him Sherlock.

Let me just say this is one of the best swap package I've ever gotten! I love everything! I just hope mine can live up to this.

I've heard great things about that book but haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

I absolutely love the elephant!

I got my great package the other day from clumsy_momma

Sender's Choice - Noro Yarn!!  I wanted more of this to make mittens for myself. Smiley
Something Local - Cup with state flag and dolphin stitch markers


Something Round - Fingerless Gloves and Neckwarmer - Really pretty pink sparkly yarn!


Something Green - Hair Accessory
Something Funny - Stitch Marker Holder, Erasers, and Band-aids


Something Hard - It was very difficult for her to make...the i-cord took forever (I totally understand...I did a little bit much one time and did not enjoy making that!).   


Something Related to Letter T - Trio of Flip Flop Socks - I've been wanting those forever! 


Thanks soooo much!
