I still have to decide on patterns...........it really depends on the yarn as my partner *hi sarantha* wasn't too worried about what pattern so i'm going to choose the patterns after i've spun the yarns Grin

Yay! I've recieved a fabulous parcel fro A2K Grin Grin Grin

She claimed me for a container for my bath stuff & cotton yarn

However, A2K sent me TWO........yes, 2 sheepy fabric containers/baskets Grin AND a cosmetic bag AND reusable cosmetic pads............AND some cotton yarn Shocked

It all came in a medium/small-ish size box...........but then it grew & grew as i took it out of its packaging. A2K....how on earth did you squeeze it all into such a small size...............I don't think that the pictures do the sizes justice!
Thankyou so very much! Grin

Here is the first matching set
The fabric is so soft & iwant to hug it all the time  Cheesy

Here is the second matching set

 Kiss KissThankyou A2K for spoiling me........i LOVE everything!!! Kiss Kiss

I'm finding that having themes is making this MYB a little more challenging and yet on the otherhand it is focusing me more.............is anyone else finding that?

My partner is happy with handspun yarn & so that is giving me lots of good reasons to spend the afternoon "practising" Wink Wink while watching all the Grey's Anantomy episodes i've got recorded Cheesy I mean......i've got to get this perfect.......LMAO!

Kris - that's a lovely bag!  I'm very jealous!

islandmum - that's a very bright bag! Smiley

I'll be posting for an angel for dinosaur.collective today on the Angel Board. 

When i made the bag for islandmum i found the pattern on Ravelry..........It is made using a collection of any yarn knotted together to leave the strings & they are crocheted together with a black yarn to give the colours some sort of solid base.
I spent days with it hung in my living room deciding whether or not to line with the strings in or out. Undecided  I lined it with two parts to it & a pocket........my first time at lining!
Anyhow, i'd decided to chicken out & line the strings in.........BUT! .............hubbie convinced me that it looked better with the strings out........it looks better in real life though Wink Wink
