my baby sis has been begging me to make her a teddy bear for months, and i just now got around to it... i'm such a slacker big sister ^_^

she needed a tail too...

she also needed a dress and mary-janes...

my boyfriend named her mabel... i like it!

thanks for looking ^_^

mocha, my squares are wonky too! i had to mod the center of the april block to stop it from becoming a bowl, and the supernova picture was taken after both me and my boyfriend were tugging on all the corners to square it up...

here's mine!

i modded the center so that i had 18 total dc after the first round, then for round 3 just did 2 dc in each space. when i did it as written my center was wavy and bowlshaped...
and my filler for the month, supernova

this square will not lie flat at all... i hope joining it to the rest of the blanket and adding a border will help solve things...

yay! i'm so glad that you liked your package, jenicat... i was worried about it after i got yours Tongue i'm glad that the slippers fit and that you liked the quant... i needed to learn entrelac and i saw the quant in your profile as someone else's project that you liked, so i figured i would send you the results ^_^ you should really try it... once i got the hang of it it was a fun knit. it doesn't even take up one whole ball... i wanted to make a matching one for riley too, but i was worried that the silk garden would be too itchy for baby skin.

that is a huge yarn stash! best get to crocheting ^_^

i got package number two from jenicat, and it is ridiculously insane! seriously... she sent so much stuff... you are all going to be so envious and i am having some serious swap anxiety about the package i sent out today....

on to the pictures!

first, check out how huge this box it. that's my 12 inch ibook on top of it for scale... it barely fit in the package mailbox!

here's all the little wrapped packages inside... (that box that says medium item on it? it's lying! there is no medium item in there... it is more like... xxxl item!)

an awesome link t-shirt that she stenciled... i am totally obsessed with zelda ^_^

the rest of the small items together... i love love love the sushi socks!

a beautiful pin, a ring that fits perfectly, and kitty stitch markers from my wist!

leaf marble magnets (they all came unglued! i will fix them because i so need these ^_^) and a blank notebook - she decorated the inside edges of the pages too ^_^

pressed ivy leaves (my favorite!) from her yard... this will go up on the new shelves we just put in the dining room

a tiny octopus stuffie with a heart... she says this is a jason (my boyfriend) octopus and that the yelley octopus will be on its way once she knows what color she should be... i think yelley octopus would be either green or pink! (when i first saw this i thought for sure that she had bought it somewhere...)

feeling the envy yet? it gets better... a super ridiculous awesome jewelry making kit! i've always wanted to learn because i have a hard time finding jewelry that suits my tastes, but i never started because it's kind of expensive... now i have no excuses! she included lots of wire and findings, a book about wire jewelry making, some handwritten illustrated guides to help me get started, a ton of gorgeous beads in all my favorite colors (which is pretty much just green ^_^), and an extra bead case. seriously... i got so spoiled!

i can totally picture her getting all excited about labeling each compartment... that's exactly how i would have been too ^_^

jenicat, thanks for such an amazing package! i loved everything! <3<3<3
