Y'all are going to be jealous because I got the best package from craftADDchick!

First she made me a hook roll

That has not one, not two, but THREE layers to insert hooks in.  This will hold lots of hooks!

pic of it folded over

And a matching little square pouch to hold stitch markers.  I love the shape

yarn bonbons!

And the cutest thing ever!!!  a kitty amigurimi!!!  This is adorable.

A digital row counter.  I can't wait to try this

hooks in sizes I use most

And a crochet calendar!  Very cool.

Thanks so much craftADDchick - This was an awesome package.

I'm so glad you liked it - it was a lot of fun making that package.

I also received a super fun package.  Thanks so much for agreeing to a personal swap sonjaBoo.  Everything was so colorful and cheerful.  I can't wait to jump in and start using everything!

The envelope - it looks like it got stabbed in transit but luckily everything was intact!

All the happy goodies!

A fun colorful journal and some of the pages

A pretty Twinchie

Handsewn envelopes - I like the look of stitched paper, I just never think to do it.

lots of gelli printed tags, and labels and washi samples

gelli printed papers and cute little envelopes with gelli printed hearts

fun flowers - these might be my favorite part!

Lovely tags

I received an awesome package from LadybugsandBumblebees.  We decided to do extras and she spoiled me. 

All the goodies - it felt like Christmas!

Fancy tea.  The bags are made of cloth.  I've already had some and it's really good tea. I don't think I will be sharing!

Cute change purse from a glove.  It made me laugh.  keeps in with the keep me warm theme!

chapstick cozy!  I'm always losing my chapstick.  This will be handy.

Coffee flavored Werthers - yum!
a fun vinyl decal and plaid kleenex

A matching mug rug and cup cozy.  I love the colors.  I am using them right now actually.

Funny saying underneath the cup cozy Smiley

An absolutely lovely infinite scarf.  It's so pretty! The colors are great.

With matching arm warmers - so handy for my freezing office.

Action shot!

Thank you so much Ladybugs!  It was a great package!

7  Poppy Hoopla in Needlework: Completed Projects by geekgirl1000100 on: December 13, 2017 10:54:24 AM
I made this for dharma_rebel in the 12 days of Christmas swap.  I knew she liked poppies so I found a clipart of a poppy, enlarged it and used it as a rough guideline for my poppy shape.  
It is almost all satin stitch.  It used about 5-6 skeins of embroidery thread.
The center is black felt with straight stitches to hold it down and then the same in yellow for the very center.

(the creepy face in the background is the cover of a boardgame.  I didn't realize it was there until I uploaded the photo!)

I made this for lindyv in the 12 days of Christmas swap.  I've been trying to improve my embroidery.  I saw this (or something similar) on her pinterest and decided to try it.  It includes satin stitch, french knots, back stitch

I received my package from witchhippie.  It was a really great package.  I love all the texture and colors she used and the presentation was really nice.  I need to work on my presentation (well honestly, my package I made had no presentation!)

The front of the envelope:

The back

cute little card with cuter envelope

Misc. extras: papers, clips, washi tapes, and an origami star her son made Smiley

gelli prints, halloween stickers and a Happy Mail envelope,
Plus a second decorated envelope (lower right corner) that was inside the main envelope!

The contents of the Happy Mail envelope!  My very own carved Happy Mail stamps!

The smaller decorated envelope was full of the prettiest little pockets.
This pocket had some cute ephemera and a tag

Another pocket with ephemera:

Aother pocket - this one is my favorite - wait til you see the next pic

The background of the pocket - Witchhippie, how did you do that flowered background?  Is it like decorated tissue paper mod podged onto bookprint? It's very pretty.

Witchhippie started it off with a couple of decorated pages

All the stuff

The prettiest little altered notebook

The inside cover

Witchhippie started it off with a couple of decorated pages:

Thanks so much witchhippie!
