I came home to a lovely package from Iceland today!   It made my day!   Smiley  Maria did a fantastic job on everything and I can't believe she was worried.  Behold:

Here we have a group shot of the cool lace-up tote bag, watermelon pincushion (I love the button!), and four fabric headbands:

A close-up of the headbands (I'm gonna plan my outfits for rest of the week so that I can wear a new one each day!  I wear headbands all the time and I don't even think I told Maria that  That's just how good she is.   Wink  ):

A close-up of the lacing on the tote bag.  It is lined in that same blue swirly, starry fabric (it makes me think of Iceland...awwww):

And here's a ridiculously cute laptop sleeve pictured with the reverse side of the pincushion and an awesome postcard from Maria's hometown:

I think the laptop sleeve deserves its own picture, don't you?  Isn't it awesome?

Thanks for everything, Maria!  You're the best!!!   Kiss

I can make almost anything out of polymer clay! :P

I got my package from Julia today also!

First, all my loot together:

This is a terrific bag and matching zippered pouch (change, lipstick, whatever)!

This is a knit hat Julia made for my son.  It doesn't fit, but I have a new niece or nephew on the way that it might!

This is a key cozy kinda thing.  I haven't gotten it figured out yet, but it's an attachment for your existing keyring to keep your keys from scratching up anything in your bag.

These are adorable kid earrings...a boy and a girl!

These are a pair of daisy earrings

These are the most interesting earrings and pendant!  It's funny, but we actually used the same beads...these beads are just like the ones I made her jewelry with!

Thanks Julia!  I loved my package!

OMG! I should So make that

CrossStitchin that pin cushions adorable. Reminds me of the Mr Yuck stickers, like Mr Pin Skull there...the rest of the stuff is great and more tetris magnets lol cute idea...wish I had a fridge magnets stuck too.

I love the oranges headband maria made. When I first saw the bag I was like ooo a corset? Had to adjust the laptop screen there, very pretty

Julia the bag is adorable! I am always in awe of anyone that can make anything in polymer clay. I can't draw and I can't sculpt and to make a hunk o clay look like heads, faces and flowers WOW!

There's just so much to comment on....everyones stuff is so great!

Dang - I  learned the hard way that I need to keep going way longer than I think (when I'm knitting in the round) to make hats fit, and clearly this was a pre-learning hat. But I'm glad you'll get use for it! And that you liked all the other stuff, too - I noticed the bead thing too.

I can make you a diagram for the key cozy if you can't figure it out, Jen... Smiley

I got the key cozy figured out...very cool idea!

I was wondering if the hat didn't fit 'cus my boy has a big head.  We've recently become addicted to loom knitting and he, my 10 year old, is knitting a baby hat for his new cousin!  Every round he holds it up to me and says, "is it big enough now?"  Knitting in the round on a loom is very easy, but I wouldn't know where to begin knitting with needles. 

I learned how to knit and crochet with books.  My mom is an avid knitter, but she's left handed and I'm right and couldn't learn from her to save my life.  I prefer crochet, because I'm faster at it.  I'm a crafter who needs immediate results, especially when trying something new.  I guess that's why I can't stick with cross stitch...it just takes too long. 

Just so you know, the bag is already in perfect use...I'm looming pumpkins and my yarn and loom fit perfectly in the bag and the pouch is the perfect size for my hook and the scraps of fabric I'm using for stems and needle and thread to finish it off!  So the entire project fits in the bag perfectly!!!!!
