So giggling at the lengths homerof2 went to in order to conceal her identity!  That's dedication!  Lovely work - that's a perfect quaggy package!  :-)  As always, amazed by kittykill's stitching skills! 

And, yes, ffrogg526, I'm still a bit embarrassed, but I'm so glad you liked the package.  I'm not a huge Halloween decorator these days, in fact I think this was the first time I've ever bought Halloween themed fabric, but I fell in love with that spider web fabric and bought enough to make some goodies for myself.  I did make the necklace and patterned it after the one on your Pinterest.  And I may just steal your photo of that plate - it came out much better than the couple I was able to snap!

I received a lovely package today from my secret partner!   Cheesy   

I opened my package and found a card that instructed me to 'open last' so I set it aside and went on to the goodies.   Wink   She wrapped everything so nicely with tissue paper and yarn, but I forgot to take photos in my excitement of trying to figure out my partner.    Cheesy

She sent me so many little goodies! 

Sweet little felt birds on tiny clothespins, an adorable little bird cross stitch kit, some yummy cranberry, honey and sea salt almonds and an adorable little wood birdhouse ornament.     Smiley   


She stalked me well and knew I loved birdies and minty greens/blues/aquas and ornaments and so made this cute little birdhouse ornament!   Smiley


She also discovered I loved coffee so she sent me some coffee and some lovely knitted coffee sleeves!   Cheesy   I'm looking forward to tasting these as I've not tried them before.   Cheesy   

And then she sent me this next lovely which just took my breath away.  It is SO PRETTY!   

This type of embroidery was a new technique for her that she hadn't tried before.  You wouldn't know it by looking at it, it is absolutely stunning!   Love, love, love it!   Thank you so much!     Grin


A little detail to see the beading.    Smiley


I then opened the card and inside there were some clues!  I really enjoy the guessing part with clues so I spent some time sleuthing and I think my partner is whitterp!   Cheesy

Thank you so much for everything, I love it all!    Kiss

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

The package is amazing, but the beaded bird is really a work of art.  That must've been a LOT of work!

Good guess! I'm so glad you love everything!

I'm really grateful you gave me the perfect excuse to try out the bead technique and I really enjoyed it! It was really fun, but it did take forever  Cheesy
