19 Minutes is one of my favorite books by Jodi Picoult.  If you end up liking that one I also recommend My Sister's Keeper.

I love that painting!

The postal gods were good to deathbeforedishes and I this time, and I got a lovely package in the mail. Smiley



I am so excited to finally read Angela's Ashes, it's been on my to-read list for something like 10 years!  Talk about never getting around to reading something, haha.  The button that isn't quite showing up is an adorable little worm...a BOOK worm. Cheesy  Sorry about the bad pictures, my camera is kind of on the nearly-dead side.  Unfortunately you can't really see the cool bookmarks, one is an elastic with pretty beads (in one of my favorite shades of purple, I might add) and the other has an adorable mini book.

And just LOOK at that beautiful needlework.  No, seriously.  LOOK!



I love it, love it, love it!  I love Poe, I love The Raven (of course), I love blackwork, I love lace...really this is about as good as it gets.  Grin

Thank you so much, Leilani!  Kiss

More lovely packages!  As a fellow Poe fan, I especially love the Raven embroideries!  Simply beautiful!

Deathbeforedishes, I'm so glad to see that this package actually reached your partner!  And it is gorgeous--wow, the Never More embroidery is stunning!  Is that a crocheted purse next to the book?  If you have close-ups of that and the bookmarks, I would love to see them.

a beautiful raven cross stitch!  nice finishing with the lace, that works really well (and I'm not usually a lace person). 

This swap has been full of beautiful packages!

I'll jump in and answer..It's a great little pouch for pens. Smiley I'll see if my camera will cooperate for a closeup of the bookmarks.

Yay!  I am sooooo happy that the package arrived this time!

I started crocheting the pouch to put the book I bought for theatreorchid in, but the book was way too big and I had already finished the bag by the time I bought the book. I still wanted to send it, so I decided that it could be to hold pens or high lighters (or even a smaller book.) Cheesy

I put my books in my purse all of the time and I hate when my purse items damage my book, so I made one of those for me a little while ago, but sometimes I just use it to toss pens and mirrors in and such...

If theatreorchids camera doesn't cooperate, I may have a closer pic at home. I work until 6pm EST, so I won't be able to post it until later tonight.  Cheesy Don't you hate it when work gets in the way?
