If anybody else is paying attention to the color coding on the names: don't panic. I think I did it backwards and just fixing colors.

pinkdelia: what is it all?


Ooh, I can help with that!  Grin

There's the necklace, and a felt hoop that has one of pinkdelia's favorite writing quotes written around the outside of the hoop ("The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on", as in, if you aren't writing you won't get any writing done), and the pink/red things are dice with inspiration! (I mailed a practice one to a friend and it was DEMOLISHED so I sent these to pinkdelia flat just in case that happened again). There's one for characters, one for plot points/twists, and one for objects to incorporate.

Eeeeh, sorry it took me so long to get pictures posted, I'm still trying to catch up from a stupidly crazy last week.  But here they are!  All my amazing stuff from queenofmarigold!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

First up, an awesome coffee (or tea!) cup cozy that will sternly remind me exactly how much I need to write every day!



It's a Tesha Moore style patch, which I ADORE and vow to some day try, but now I have one and I didn't even have to learn a new skill.  And I won't burn my hand.  Kind of a win-win-win.

Speaking of hands...  usually in November here "burning" isn't so much an issue as "frostbite", so I was tickled to find...



...fingerless gloves!  better known as "you can type and not have your hands fall off gloves".  They might look a little wonky in the picture, because do you know how hard it is to take a picture of both of your hands?!  I balanced my cell phone on the edge of a table, stuck my hands under it (at a weird angle, to be sure) and took the picture with my nose.  But they fit!  And are waaaaaarm.  I've already worn them because I work in what is apparently a freezer.  Sure, it looks like an office, but... these are SO MUCH appreciated!

And finally, kind of as a funny, because we had talked A LOT about hoops, and then she decided not to make one, she put together the cutest little hoop ever!  I'm going to stick a magnet on it and put in on my refrigerator, I think!



Thank you queenofmarigold, you're an great partner, and I hope your package gets there soon... and in one piece...  O.o

Smeddley: I'm in love with those handwarmers! The color is gorgeous, they look so soft, and I adore the scalloped edges Smiley Makes me want a pair now.

They usually take about two weeks to arrive, and I've never had anything rock up busted so I wouldn't worry any time soon. I'm looking forward to it and getting ready to start stalking the post office box in anticipation Smiley

I'm glad you liked everything and that it suits you - and especially that the gloves are already coming in handy! I do recommend giving the patches a try, I found it really simple and quite fun. I imagine they could get quite addictive.

EclecticDreamer, the pattern is Autumn Mittens on ravelry - one of the only ones I've been able to bear making more than once, which is saying something! I'm a little amused that you like the colour though - it was my first attempt at dyeing and it was MEANT to be purple... but came out a splotchy green. I don't know how many mistakes it took to get it that way, but I suspect more than one  Grin

I'm not worried yet, that'll be for next week if it doesn't show up by the end of it (which I'm sure it will).

Dying is a funny thing... we spent forever and a day trying to dye our "pirate" skirts a graduated white/grey/black, and it was so hard to get the black to look black! Fast forward a year or so to last week, when we tried to dye a piece of off-white lace cocoa brown... and ended up with the purest black I've seen!  Go figure...

I like green, though, so it's all good... it's like when we dye veils, I never try for anything in particular, just hope I like what comes out because you never know... Cheesy

Hi everyone, sorry I'm so late to the gallery! Wow, what great packages Smiley

The TARDIS penholder is fantastic, is that canvas work? Is that a book of inspirational quotes there from chase_acow? It looks fab, looking forward to some more detailed pictures Smiley
Love all the wristwarmers and the faucet hoop and the notebook! Cool cup cosy too Smiley

I received a box from our wonderful organizer that was full to the brim with awesome!

First up, the greatest purse I could ever imagine... I was especially impressed with the tiny organizer type pockets inside one of the outer pockets...

The purse was stuffed full of goodies including a tiny notebook with handmade fabric cover (the quote reads, "The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now."), a pile of index cards with quotes and other inspiration, a book of blank index cards that says, "blank book seeks writer for long term relationship", and other goodies...

Fabric, an awesome scarf, and handmade soap from a local artisan with whom she took a class.


Thanks, EclecticDreamer!
