I am so pleased that you like it.
A little bit of info on the things that I sent in case anyone is interested
 I wove the basket and then painted it yellow so you could decorate it however you like. The brooch was made from shampoo bottles and the wooden heart was plywood that I painted and embellished.  I love quilling and it seemed to fit well on the heart. Stitch markers and a brooch were on your list of things you might like to receive. I have dozens of little flowers but hardly any yellow ones (typicall)  just enough to make a few little stitchmarkers.

Would anyone like me to take some different photos of the parcel I received?  I am probably the worlds worse photographer but will try again if you would like me to.

HAPPY!!! These are both such great packages. The arm warmers look so comfy cozy and that crochet coin purse is fab.

What a fun way to start the gallery.

Loving the first two parcels BUT it has thrown up an issue for me! I was feeling great about what I sent but having seen those I now am host to my old friend....swap anxiety! Still hopefully it will be there soon and I can stop stressing!!

Love Sarah

Our gallery is off to a great start! 

I love the silky pouch in that first package and the arm warmers look so comfy cozy. 

How clever to use pop tabs (being southern, I would call those Coke tabs regardless of what drink they came off of  Cheesy) to make a cute little coin purse.  The quilling is very pretty and I'm very intrigued by the basket.  You wove that yourself?  What exactly is it made of?

I'm a little bit country, and I'm a little bit rock and roll.

I wish I had those arm warmers right now.
I wish I could weave a basket. That's a really cool skill.

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

I am loving all the sunshine!
adrienne_bowers's sunshine arrived to the stormy northwest. Check out all the awesome goodies she sent me! She totally spoiled me!

First, the box was wrapped so adorable. I need some of this tape.

Before I ripped into the goodies!

All the awesomeness she made me.

Vintage love!

Thank you SOOOOOO much! I love everything! You totally made my rainy day all sunshiney and happy!

That's a ton of sunshine! Gives me new ideas (as if I didn't already have too many to finish by SO)! Grin
Especially like the wooden tote. Perfect for patio parties!

Oh my goodness!  That must have been a huge box, kittykill!  Such lovely things so far.  LOVE that owl potholder.   

If I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew, I'd sew my true love to my side, and down the creek
