Those are really pretty Katie Jane!  Here's how far I've gotten on my sock.   I'm just starting the heel flap.

Today is World Wide Knit in Public day so I went to the Orlando event and worked on my sock.   One girl there had made up her own pattern and was making a pair of sock that buttoned up the sides!   They were really cool looking and I want to make those next!

Ok... I feel bad because I haven't posted much, but I've been ickily sick for awhile.  I'm finally catching up!

Here is my first package from my FOC...

The necklace says "I slept with him anyways" and the plaque says "Nobody has ever measured, even poets, how much a heart can hold."

My second package and third package:

A super cute raincloud purse, cute pins, and a needle roll!

And my non-crafted package:

Small toys to sew! and a varied charm package.   All from www.plainmabel.com.

All of these items are things from my wists list!!!!  They are all amazingly crafted.   I don't know who my FOC is though...  Sad  But I can go guess in the revel right?

Here's the amazing first aid/panic attack kit that BambiKhantastic sent me!

Here are the three bags that everything came in.  There's a bag for the car/office, a "someone is bleeding!" bag (which I should totally take on my triathlon training trips), and a "Caught Unawares" bag.   Which I should just take everywhere.

Here is everything together.   Including: first aid kit (I've already used the rolaids!), bandaids, gauze, tape, gloves, sanitizer, toilet paper to go!!!!!!, ibuprofen, dry sport sunblock (totally for my triathlons), brush/mirror, vaseline, little garbage sacks, poncho, protein bars, lotion,

Here is a close-up of the first aid box (mermaids!) and cupcake pouch (for my panic attack medication).

Thank you so much BambiKhantastic...  Kiss  I love it!

I recieved from PinkyK!   And she is such an amazing craftster... I'm so impressed that she was able to do such amazing things for 2 people.

2 badge holders (I desperatly need them.  My badge and I have issues.   I'm always forgetting it and work hates that.) My favorite color combo is black and red, so that's perfect!  And the bone and wood beaded one has skull beads!  And a beautiful bracelet that matches...

A choker and a pair of earrings!   So I have a whole set!  The choker is the perfect length and is three stranded and gorgeous.   I got dressed for y'all to take this picture, so you wouldn't have to see me in my t-shirt jammies.   Obviously I couldn't be bothered to remove my sports bra, do my hair, or clean my mirror.   Sorry about that!

An awesome CD mix and 2 marble magnets, one scarab and one dried rose.  They're so well done!   And the CD is great because it has some bands that I love and some bands that I've heard of but never listened too.

And last, but certainly not least, a beautiful mosiac jewelry box!  It's really very very very beautiful and well made.

The inside of the box

Thank you so much PinkyK!   I'm so glad that you were my partner!
