 Shocked holy cow!!!!  I received today from my secret swap goddess!!!!  I got completely, i mean COMPLETELY spoiled!!!!!  

First off, I open this adorable green foiled box with matching lid to find a new friend to hang out with my sewing machine:

Isn't it adorable?!  I adore all things with googly eyes.

NEXT...I unwrap the sweetest shrinky dink charm EVER. seriously. meatwad totally totally rocks!

I smile every single time i look at it!  Meatwad is my hero, i just can't decide if i want to put him on a necklace chain, a keychain, or a zipper pull on my purse!!!!!!

and if that all wasn't enough....I also got 3 gorgeous pairs of earrings, they are so me, they fit my style perfectly!

the colors in the beads are beautiful...very subtle...and they are really quite elegant...


The branchy wire and bead ones must have taken so much time...they are begging for me to throw on a little black sexy number and hit the town!  I love love love everything so much! Whomever you are, you are quite talented and so thoughtful, thank you for such a wonderful gift!!!!

Here is the purse that I revamped for Cortag04! 

The awesomely bad before picture in terrible lighting and unflattering surroundings:

It matches my ugly brown carpet, blech.

And the fantastic transformation picture with flattering light and pleasing surroundings:

and the new lining, WITH a zipper pocket: (sorry...that was a HUGE accomplishment for me!)

and the new improved handle:

and the matching credit card holder:

This was such a fun project!  Will there be a....round three?  hehehe.

Ok..so i found some time tonight to take a ton of photos!  Here's a pic of the the great jewelry seaofstars sent to me!

I adore the color scheme, it is one of my favorites!  very life aquatic!  I was wearing the long stick pair of earrings today and a random girl at the coffee shop asked where I got them because she loved them so much!  I said...well...they were actually custom made for me...hehe....by this great designer in Michigan!  Smiley 

Thanks again seaofstars!

66  Knitted Pink Ladybug Purse in Knitting: Completed Projects by knottydottie on: December 26, 2005 10:04:37 PM
I made this purse for a christmas swap and it turned out decent enough to post some pics finally! Smiley

It is a slightly modified version of a pattern in a book called "25 bags to knit" (which i highly recommend for those of you who are purse/bag obsessed) I used two different yarns, knitted together, for the entire bag.  one was a mauve colored silk ribbon and the other was a tweedy pink Rowan wool blend yarn.  I used size 10 circulars, first project on circulars, and i think i'm finally a circular convert!
