I think I must be the last to receive. I got a gorgeous set of fabrics from jemimah. They are fab! I can't decide whether the swallows (I have an affinity for them) or the clouds.

I received from loves2experiment six (!) gorgeous pieces, I'm having a hard time deciding which is my favourite, but I think it's the purple one. I really want to know how you did it. It reminds me of cells, or bubbles

OMG prepare to be totally jealous. I received the most amazing package from jillybeans!!! And beautifully wrapped.

My heart sank a little when I felt the shape of the first one, shoes-oh noez, I have huge feets and thought that there is no way they are going to fit. But they do, they fit perfectly and they are incredible!!!!

They are goblet of fire themed (my favourite book) and they are so well done. I adore them!

And if that weren't entirely enough all by themselves. She's also gone and sent me a teeshirt. How cool! Also fits perfectly. I love the colour and design

And if all that weren't enough, she also sent me some local goodies (yum!) And a lovely tree pendant

She totally spoiled me. Thank you xx

I received my angel package from powerhouseofthetcell. It's this great deathly hallows symbol made from wire wrapped fabric. It's great and will look fab on my HP Christmas tree. Thank you so much PHOTC for being an angel, it's such a kind thing to do. And thanks BBM for organising, this had to have been a huge undertaking

Nooooo new floo, it's still the 7th here, can I post my afternoon tea one? Or is it too late?

Just in case it's not too late.

Floo-afternoon tea
Project-an entire afternoon tea. It's my mom's 89th birthday, so inspired by the prompt I invited her and my sister's to afternoon tea.
Sandwiches- cucumber, ham and cheese, egg and tomato, smoked salmon on brown bread (I made this bread)
Mini scones with jam and cream
Both veggie and regular sausage rolls
Chocolate and Nutella cake and DD made a coconut and lime cake

finally I have a chance to sit down and show you all the amazing things I received yesterday. I was so happy that Patty_Os package reached me, I would have been happy if it had reached her, it would have been tragic if it had stayed bouncing between the USA and Canada for all eternity. And what a coincidence that CLMs angel package arrived the very same day.

The photos below were all taken from the passenger seat of a car as my DH was driving me to dinner, so they are not perfectly composed!

first the original package
You all saw the amazing bracelet that Patty_O made, I absolutely love it, it is so full of gorgeous beads, but she didn't mention that she made earrings to match. (try getting any kind of flattering picture in a moving car of your wrist and ears, that doesn't make you look like you have elephantitis of the wrist!)

 and there were other wonderful goodies, this brilliant pinata, he is so cute, I think he might live on my shelf.

She also did this adorable mini canvas and included some rainbow stickers and rainbow ribbon, and these gorgeous hair slides. Which is really thoughtful because my hair is growing out (with curls!) from chemo and I am still learning to manage the curls, so I am wearing a lot of hair slides.  And this yummy rainbow soap. And tiny flamingo charms!!!!

Thank you so much Patty_O I wore the jewellery to dinner, my DH approves .

And then I got to open the second package. How lucky am I???

out popped not one, but two fabulous pouches, I love the colours and one has immediately been filled with all sorts of bits and bobs that were floating around the bottom of my bag. I had toyed with giving one to my friend today, but I didn't. They are too nice, so I am keeping them for me. They have three separate compartments each.

She also added a lovely tassel, which she made as part of a craft group.

And there's more! This wonderful mugrug, made by kbrison, I love the rainbow here. And she filled a card with stamps, cute little moustache charms and a book mark. Look at the card! It is so clever, woven paper.

thank you so so much for organising this swap and for being my angel.

Look what was waiting when I got home from work!!!!!!

The original that's been bouncing around (someone scratched off Canada and wrote Ireland) and the angel package.

I'm so excited and so glad that patt_o's package didn't end up in some waste land!

10  slow stitched fabric from CLM made into a microwave bowl cozy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by edelC on: September 12, 2019 01:14:59 PM
I really was at a loss to know what board to post this on, so I figured a bowl cozy is a kind of a bag??!

Anyway CraftyLittleMonkey made me this slow stitched fabric ages ago, and of course I was waiting for the perfect project, but in the spirit of 'Use the good beads' and really needing a bowl cozy for work. I decided to use the fabric.

Meal planning is awesome, I have just started and it saves so much mental energy. So I have been bringing soup to work every day (making the soup on Sunday-makes lunches so much better) but the soup out of the microwave was scalding my hands, so I needed the cozy. And what a better use of the fabric than to have the love and energy that CLM put into it, making every lunchtime better.

this is the final result.

this was the starting fabric

and penguins for a lining fabric.
