I am the first to post my package from Sarahelise!

This is a picture of everything together!


This is by far my favorite item!  It's currently on my entertainment center where everyone can see it when they come in Smiley


These are some cute brooch/pins that I love Smiley  Thinking of using them as a home accessory and alternating them with outfits that they go with Smiley  I may even clip them onto my purse!


I requested fingerless gloves, and these are amazing!  I love the colors, the softness of the yarn and the amazing fit.  I would wear them all the time if I could!


I had some security envelope tags on my wishlist on pinterest which she also made for me.  I think these are better than the ones that I had linked to Smiley


and I also got these beautiful tree appliques.  I love them and also had them linked to my pinterest.  They are so beautiful and happy!


I really liked how she packaged the chocolate and mini notebook/extras as well as everything else in really cute bags--each new item was like opening a gift


Thank you so much for sending items that I've longed for for a while, and really toning into my tastes!

Yay!  I'm glad you liked everything.  I knew you would love the faux bois piece and the gloves!  I made a pair from that same pattern and they're so cozy!

oook, lots of pics ahead, beware! This is the package I received last week from Rantyhippie:

First off, a lovely little cross stitch that I plan to hang on my wall:


Then there were three dish scrubbies (which work great, I've already used them!) and a knit washcloth (so soft!). Kitty is inspecting:


Here she included some fabric, batting, and instructions on how to assemble a baked potato bag, which is perfect because I hate having to use lots of paper towels and/or plastic when I'm cooking. Also, isn't that potato fabric adorable? I haven't had time to make it yet, but this will be a perfect way to practice my quilting (which I haven't ever done before but will need to when I finish my quilts)


A tie-dye fabric crochet holder, which I have already put all of my crochet hooks in. I have a designated drawer for them in my crafting space and they STILL manage to get lost, so hopefully this will prevent that from happening!


All rolled up with my hooks in it:


And I asked for tea/dish towels, so here she sent several towels that she added some very pretty crochet edging to on the ends. I hope you can see the towels ok, this is kind of a bad picture:


But I did get a close-up of the crocheting:


And finally some extra towels, which I've already started using, but I think I may steal her crochet idea and embellish them this way or with embroidery  Grin I've been wanting to practice my embroidery skills on some kitchen linens lately.


Thank you so much for everything, Rantyhippie! Everything in the package was perfect, and I've already put most of it to good use by now. I love it so much!

Velvet Rose is struggling with internet access problems at the moment so has asked me to post the pictures I took of the things I sent to her:

The unpaper towels, these are velcro fastened and plain, as requested.


The bowl covers, unlined so that her fermenting can continue unabated and plain, as before.


The recycled notebook I got to embellish a bit.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
