Oh thank goodness!  I was so worried!  I'm so glad you like everything!

At last, the planets have aligned and I can finally post pictures of my *amazing* package from MissMeShell! Apologies in advance to dial up users, I went a little crazy with pics!

Isn't the stocking fabulous? I love all the different fabrics she used. And the shape is so...Seussian! It's funny, we both sent curly-toed elf stockings with pointed cuffs. Smiley I'm going to put it on my office door, to bring some much needed Christmas spirit to my drab workplace.

I absolutely adore this wreath. It's based on one from my wists. All the different trims and buttons lend such a great retro feel. Must find the *perfect* place for this.

This wristlet is the perfect size for a night out: just big enough for keys, wallet, and my new awesome cell phone. Again with the wonderful fabrics...I spy some Denise Schmidt! *drool* Also based on something from my wists. Meshell did such a great job of picking some truly awesome goodies to make!

I've always been a big fan of Meshell's wrapped canvases, so I'm thilled to now be the owner of not one, but *two*! The little owlie is adorable. The larger canvas has a spot of honor in my bedroom.

Yay! Recipies! They all sound delicious, but the anzac biscuits and the quiches have majorly piqued my interest. And what pretty recipe cards!

Ok, now this is the deer that she says she doesn't like. I, however, LOVE it! It is so kitschy I can hardly stand it. It reminds me of some Christmas deer my grandparents used to put up during the holidays.

Some *very* pretty log cabin coasters. I feel like I need to invite people over right now, just so I can entertain and use these little pretties!

When I read the note she included with my package, I was astounded to find that she painted these lovely coasters herself! I just assumed that they were store bought. The patterns are from vintage fabrics. Brown + blue = love. Smiley

At last, a MissMeShell pincusion for my very own!! Love the fabric.

Here are some great ornaments that will be hanging on my tree this year. The blue one matches the deer, and the fabric one matches my stocking! I love the little Santa and candycane.

Hee hee...these patches are too funny! My mom and sister (both knitters) are jealous. Also, some cute stickers and a Santa box.

FABRIC! Oh, goodness, what lovely prints! The silky pink fabric just might become a dress for my Blythe. I'm going to use the cottons as a part of my secret quilt. Shhh...

Here are bits and bobs: some cute covered buttons, and ribbon.

Meshell also sent me an Australian postcard with a nice letter on the back, and two CD's. One is a fantastic Christas CD, and the other is Australian music. What a neat idea!

This 'Queen bitch' book is great! Each of the pages have a different funny saying on them. This one's my favorite! Grin

Some more Aussie souvenirs: a kangaroo, and a pen. The thrifted green yarn is *the* perfect shade of green.

Some Australian coins that I requested. One of their coins has a platypus on it! *dies*

And last but not least....CANDY! Embarassingly enough, about half of this is GONE now that I have taken pictures. YUM!

Grin Grin Grin Thank you so much, Meshell!!  Grin Grin Grin

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Man. I've seen that deer, but now I'm just thinking that is absolutely AWESOME! And I also love Meshell's "lots of really unique colourful fabrics in one item" style (the stocking, the wristlet, the canvas... all amazing)!

Seriously DROOLing over that whole package, you lucky girl, you!  I believe, hands down, that MissMeshell has the BEST fabric stash ever!  Everytime I see something she makes, I adore her choices; impecible taste, MissMeshell.  You are SO going on my 'to swap with' list.

I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.
