finished a Ta-tas washcloth and will make the next one a bit wider --
could be for breast cancer awareness or just for kicks  Smiley
(hopefully this doesn't need a "mature" label?  if it does, can the mods fix it?)
if there is interest, I can add to my shop.....

finished another test kit last night --
this is a lightweight yarn (wool) -- more of a loose decorative cowl,
but I think it turned out pretty well.....

I have been SO spoiled by super-swapper quaggy!!

I knew when I saw the size of the box that she went overboard, and she did!!

First view when I opened the box:

All of the neat pkgs --
by the way, I just LOVE this wrapping paper!  Haven't seen any like it before, and I may just
be saving some to use in paper crafting soon -- so cute!!!

and finally,
Ta DA!!!!!!!

My initials are
K = Kris Kringle (and a Kit Kat bar  Smiley
C = Candy Cane doily (and Cool Blast mints)
G = Goodies in a mug (and a Grandma's cookie)

quaggy hand painted the ceramic Santa, and he is perfect!
I've got him on my mantle now, sitting on the sweet doily!
and then, she gave me the prettiest bee-themed mug (my dad's a beekeeper, so
this is near & dear to my heart) and not 1, but TWO Teesha Moore patches that she sewed!!  Her talents are neverending.....

I cannot thank you enough, quaggy  --
you have overwhelmed me with a tremendous pkg!
Thanks, thanks, thanks, dear friend!!
