well, well, WELL!!!!

I have been officially SPOILED by my awesome partner, hazelly!!!

I have to say that my camera is very old, so the photos will definitely not
do justice to the goodies my partner sent --
Hazelly, if you have more pics, feel free to share!
eta:  grrrrrrr!  took a couple of cute photos, and doggone camera went on
the fritz, so this was the best I could do at re-assembling the goodies and
re-taking the photo.....hazelly, you'll notice the 2nd bag of cookies never made
it back from the kitchen  (YUM Smiley

My name is Karen,
so here we go:

pkg pre-opening:


and here is post-opening:


K is for Knit Me  (notice the neat packaging with cute little handwritten cards for each part of
the pkg??  Adorbs!)
This is a skein of the softest, most beautiful HANDSPUN yarn -- this would have been sufficient
for the whole pkg!  I know what a labor of love it must be to spin such great yarn!
Thanks a MILLION -- I mean it!

A is for Adorn Me
The cutest hoopla (had totally forgotten this was on my profile faves....so cute!)
and stitch markers that I just love (can't get enough of these....always need more!)

R is for Rinse Me
Wonderful-smelling soap from a local soapmaker who attends her knitting group

E is for Entrust Me
My favorite type of bag, the Japanese knot bag!  And would you believe she HAND-sewed it???
Excellent work!

and finally
N is for Nibble Me --
Luscious cinnamon roll cookies (both iced and uniced) as well as some authentic Turkish Delight
candy.....mmmm mmmm GOOD!!
My dtr and I have already sampled all of the goodies, and
I believe I will have those cookies for breakfast for the next few days; they taste JUST LIKE
cinnamon rolls!

All I have to say is OUTSTANDING!
Thanks for a super pkg, hazelly!!

crymson it sounds like those baby crafts have arrived just in time!
kayrun you did a very nice job on that fabric bead covered necklace; I have been meaning to make one as a gift for someone for far too long but I am scared to attempt it.
hazelly your crafts were lovely but I really like how you fit the letter to each one; so creative! And hand spun yarn? My goodness kayrun that must have made your day!

I received from my partner Baloo yesterday - what a treasure trove of goodies!


E - Easter Egg, filled with my all time favourite, creme eggs! (They're all gone now)
L - Love Heart
Y - Yellow Butterflies
S - Seasoning Shakers
E - Elyse Bag - I love that it's personalized. Maybe I'll keep my notebook inside!

Because our names didn't match in length, she had to repeat 4 of the letters in my name...

E - Emerged Items - a bag filled with balloons and hidden treasures for jewellery making. This was a special treat to open - I'm looking forward to working with these!
L - Ladybird pins. They will go on my bulletin board by my desk for some cheer!
Y - Yummy Lollies - YES!!!!
S - Squirrel Penpot

Here is a look at some of the items that were hiding in the bag with the balloons

Wait... you didn't get the lanyard? I wonder where it went then. I'm gonna have to check around my desk. Checking the pictures I took before I sent everything I don't see it either. Hmm...

yes, indeed!!  it's amazing!!

oh, you should try the fabric beads.  I had some trouble at first with the fabric & glue
jamming up the hole, but I finally got the hang of it.
The tutorial that helped me was this:

I think snipping the fabric was the key to success Smiley
