I got a wonderful birthday package from DesignVigilante. She really spolied me. She didn't have to. This is what I got:

Some cool homespun yarn, tea, sweetener, 2 crocheted washcloths and the card was cool. The Beatles from Yellow Submarine.



Thank you for a wonderful birthday present. I hope you like yours!

I received TWO packages from zzdia today! Seriously, I feel so amazingly spoiled. She not only make me an amazing totoro, but also a little one with a leaf AND sent along an "M" wax seal stamp!!



I love it! You did a fantastic job, it's so cute. Even Love was like, "that's great, where'd you get that?" And when I told him it was from a swap, he was impressed. (He's not often impressed so it's a big compliment. LOL)

Sorry you can't really see the wax seal stamp in this. I'll try to get another shot. It too is totally awesome and EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Thank you so much, zzdia!!

Yay, I'm so glad you like Totoro. I'm reaaaaaallly bad at embroidering features on amis, so his face is all lopsided, but I still loved making him (I may have cuddled with him a bit before I sent him off). I ran into the wax seal in one of my favorite bookstores and I couldn't help but grab it up because I remembered it was on your list, so it's a lucky extra.

And thanks for the greeting! Cheesy Belated happy birthday, DesignVigilante! Cheesy

I just finished making something for gerbilgal. My husband has already declared that we need one so I guess I'll make a second. LOL!

I received a wonderful necklace and earrings set from phoenixfiredesigns.  She found these cool pendants and made a necklace and matching earrings. Thank you so much! I wore them all evening.
