astarael said I could post a picture of what I sent her, cause she's going camping and won't be able to post for a while. I made her a big bag with matching mp3 player holder, and some stationary. I also threw in a few big dots for fun! It was my first time to make a bag like that so I made a practice one first. I've been carrying around the practice piece all the time, so I hope she'll do the same! It was fun, and I can't wait to see what she sent me! -mer

kittykurl's package made it all the way from canada to nashville today!  she sent the CUTEST stuff for ella.  there is a jacket with polka dot lining in the pixie hood and butterfly buttons down the front--a green polka dot sock monkey with a heart embroidered on his little chest--and a polka dot bag with the best polka dot fabric i have ever seen. 

ella was practically dancing when she saw a package on the porch and we had to stop right inside the front door and open it up.  she put the jacket on right then and there and the first thing she said was, "it's just like belle!" (yeah, we watch beauty and the beast a lot). 

i couldn't be more pleased, this was a real treat and a great way to get to know a fellow craftster.  thank you kittykurl, and thank you lamamarco for making room for us in the swap!

kittykurl, i am so happy i am in tears!  i am so relieved it fits and even more relieved that you like it.  it was so important to me to do my best work on this--there is just something about you that captured my heart and i wanted to make you happy.  Smiley

remember i told you there was something to go with it?  it is the pattern, i didn't send it because the PO told me it would change the nature of the customs requirement and that you might be charged duties if the package included printed material.  but if you want it, let me know, it is custom drafted for you and i'd love for you to have it.  i'll include a fabric layout diagram and sewing instructions.  i can send it all as a file if you want, then you wouldn't even have to wait for the mail!

you have made MY DAY!!!  wear the dress with joy.

Thank you so much meredith!!  I love the bag and mp3 cozy and they're both perfect sizes and everything was so nicely packaged.  Thanks again, and thanks to lamamarco for organising.

OK my partner BrynnBot has NOT received yet
Canada post has lost the box--in the states
 I have a trace on it --this takes another 5-15 days
it was undeliverable so they were sending it back to me as of June 11(yeah right)

if anyone in or around Boulder sees someone with a lovely knit polka dot bag get up real close & tell me what it looks like or ask them were they got it
only good thing I ensured it for $75 --but more(work) than that went into it
I do have pictures !!!!
