I can see from the USPS.com that yellie received my package yesterday. She is a busy student, and this is the end of the semester, so I am going to take the liberty of posting what I made for her.

This is the main thing she wanted, a beret-style hat for her soon-to-be dreads. This one is done in Patton's soy-wool stripes. (used soy since silk was out for vegetarian reasons)




i ended up having enough yarn to make hand/wrist warmers as well, so I did, here they are:



I also sent her a little pincushion:




She also got some European licorice, but I didn't take a photo of that. I hope she is happy and warm and doing very well in her final exams!!!!!!! Go Yellie!

Here is a pic of it all wrapped it (gosh it was hard to take it with out tearing into it all!)


Then here is most of it together, 4 felt star ornaments, a set of holiday coasters, tea towel, and ROCKIN' pillow.


Then here is the apron she made me from great holiday fabric:


A close up of the tea towel:


And a close up of the best thing of all, the gnome pillow! It is embroidered so well! I love it! thanks so much little*devil!

Since the date has been extended, I may wait a little longer than tomorrow (when i was going to take my package to the p.o.) depending on how tonight goes. But i thought it would be fun to post something that Prickly Venus is NOT getting. (ie. was ruined).

here is one of those melted bead bowls. It was something she mentioned interest in, and also something that i have never made. It started out as a plate, then a bowl with too-big sides, then a charred bowl-shaped black thing, and after trying to re-melt it, cut the sides while in the oven, ruin a pan by baking plastic to it...it is now bunnies new treat dish!

bunny inspecting.
bunny testing out her new stuffs
The bag of excess plastic the was removed then scraped off the pan.

Sorry, Prickly...but at least bunny is happy!
What we have learned: Don't take an open flame to plastic in attempts to remove the excess.

p.s. Yes, she is a bunny and her name is bunny.
