I received from ShannonMN yesterday.  What a surprise!  I was expecting it on Mon.  I couldn't post yesterday, because I had family in town.  I received the cutest crocheted rainbow caterpillar, 2 crocheted ladybugs, and 3 crocheted hot pads, that have a ladybug, a butterfly, and a dragonfly crocheted into them!  Even my sister was like, WOW!  Don't worry ShannonNM, I prefer quality to quantity and you went above and beyond on the quality!  I always admire people who can crochet and knit.  Because, I cannot, and suck at it.  Enjoy!

I am catching up with the gallery in between putting the final touches to my parcel for Kathrynsss!! Everyone is so crafty and inspiring


Gotgrey love the pouch with butterfly embellishment and the gorgeous material on that reversible bag (I am a sucker for a reversible tote). Cute bug mug rugs and cool spider plushie. Major spoilage.  Grin
Crazyda79 nice cicada hoop and lovely material on the pillowcase. I am falling in love with all the beautiful luna moth crafts and awesome extras  Cheesy
ShannonMN nice crocheting skills I particularly like the caterpillar and ladybugs.  Shocked

Can't wait to see more!

I received from La Chapa a few days ago and am just now able to post some pictures. I was hoping to have hung one of the items so the pics would be better of it, but unfortunately that did not happen.

Anyhoo... I WAS SPOILED! Wow, La Chapa, your crochet skills are amazing and totally enviable. She also tried some new mediums (cross-stitch and clay) and I cannot believe this is her first time working with either of those mediums because your finished items look fantastic!

This is the cross-stitch butterfly she made me. I can't believe this is her first time cross-stitching. This is going to hang up in my studio.


She also made me this adorable crocheted ladybug!! I love her! I knit, but cannot crochet and I am enviable of anyone who can because I LOVE amigurumi!


La Chapa also made this adorable baby rattle! (My husband and my 5 year plan has been changed to a 1 year plan Smiley )


I had put in my questionnaire that I really wanted some plant markers for my veggies and herbs. How fantastic are these! And it's her first time sculpting clay! They are so great and I love their expressions! She also sent along extra cards for the markers!


And last, but certainly not least, she made me 2 crocheted butterfly mobiles! These are the items that I wanted to hang up to get a good pic. Unfortunately, this pic does not do it justice (and it was the best I could get). Each mobile has beads at the end to weight it and each butterfly is actually made out of two crocheted butterflies so they look more 3D as their wings separate from each other a little bit. I love them and they are going to hang in my studio! Smiley


I didn't get a picture of the box it came in, but it had different insects stamped all over the outside!!!!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, La Chapa! I absolutely LOVE everything you sent me and your skills are nothing short of amazing! Thank you for spoiling me! I greatly appreciate it! Smiley

What a lovely package  Smiley The rattle is so adorable! Love the cross stitch and the buttefly hanging is so pretty, I bet it moves nicely!

My package to whenindoubtsew has potentially not even left the country- but I just can't wait for her to receive!  Cheesy

I am trying to keep myself calm so I don't pass out from anticipation - I am so excited to see what you made for me as well  Grin

La Chapa - I love the crocheting and colours - particularly that cute ladybug and the butterfly mobile is an awesome idea. The garden planters are so well done and the butterfly cross stitch is lovely.
