I am very sory to have posted that little, but I had problems with internet.
Still have (I am posting this at my parent's place). I hope my package will be received very soon, because I'm very anxious if it will cross the pond safely. I am very excited about what I made. And about what I received Cheesy
I received about 3 days ago, but will post only now, because of the internet issue.
I love what my partner made me. Thank you! It will definately be used!

It is a wrist pincushion (or hand pincushion Wink)
It has a tree on it, very neatly embroidered and with lots of green beads stitched on it.
I think it looks lovely. Thank you! Smiley

I received the package from Natalie (Varandra) and I'm so happy! Everything is gorgeous.
Everything together (except for the kitchen related item, because I'm wearing it  Wink) A handmade cookbook, a bought cookbook, a kitchen cloth with leaf print and a letter including another recipe.

Close-up of the cookbook front. She printed the fabric herself. I love it  Grin

Inside of the cookbook. If you want a closer look to get the recipes, go to my flickr page, click the right image and click "all sizes". I love that you put notes on everything Natalie!! Thank you thank you! Your package is so considerate  Smiley

Inside of cookbook she sent, including little notes.  Cheesy

And last but not least, the apron she made. With the same fabric as on the cookbook and a pen in the pocket with the same ink to write more recipes on the blank pages of the cookbook. I think it looks great.

Your package definately made my day Natalie, and is going to make more more days I'm sure!  Cheesy I hope you like my package as much as I like yours (allmost impossible).

Here's a little teaser for Natalie..  Grin
This picture might look a bit odd, but it was delicious.

Jazzturtle, your yarn is divine, as allways. And I'm very curious about those fabric bowls!
This time, I have some yarn to show as well, and I think I like it very much. The plying didn't went great, the single started to break! So I plied it very tight.
This is the end result;

I guess I'm still learning.
How do you do that, plying a single with itself? Do you measure how long it is and cut it in half?

And I bought some wonderful roving from Cheryl's etsy shop, that will become my first spinning that is actually sufficient to do something nice with  Smiley

Yay for fiber friday! This is my second enty  Smiley
First a simple red single, ashford corriedale wool;

And one I'm actually quite pleased with;
Icelandic wool, plied with a very thin, white-yellow-blue coloured thread.
Looks very.. special.  Wink

I'm sorry for the dark picture.
I hope you like my creations.
Tonight I'll buy my own spinning wheel!  Grin

7  Eye-bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Flowers and Lemons on: February 14, 2008 10:06:32 AM
I finally finished the bag I was working on. I made the front from a T-shirt I was addicted to. It became too small, but I couldn't just throw it away. The back is crocheted, I got the wool from the mother of my boyfriend, so there are some memories sticking to the bag. The third picture shows the lining and a little pocket inside. I hope you like!  Grin I know I do!
I also added a little white border thing (I don't know how to call it in English). Like, to finish it off.
Me modeling the bag;

The crocheted backside; (sorry for the blurry-ness)

And the lining (which I'm very proud of) with a pocket;

This was the first bag I ever made. I hope you like it.  Smiley

I'm not sure if my spinning is good enough to post on fiber friday, but I enjoy it so much, that I wanted to share. (And thanks again for you craftsters who gave me advise.) Cheesy
On my dropspindle;

And knitted up;

I love the green- with rainbow colours yarn. Pretty!  Cheesy

I followed Nicolassa's instructions. It turned into something that looked a little like how it should look. I'm not sure wether I did it right. I improvised a little.
This was the wool after it had been washed, still a bit wet;

I picked it till it got all fluffy and nice. Then I constructed something to make it into easier to use roving. And then attempted to spin for the first time.
Pictures of it still on the spindle;
Then into a tiny ball;
Can somebody tell me wether I did it right or not? I'm not quite sure..  Embarrassed

I made some pictures of the starter-kit.
This is everything together;

The dropspindle (that's what it's called, right?) and instructions;

And two pictures of the wool;
The wool is felted together and greasy, but I tried to pull it apart a little, and I think it works. What do you do? Wash the wool first, or afterwards? Do you think I'll be able to spin with this wool, like this?
Thanks for helping. I appreciate it a lot  Cheesy
