Awww, shucks. You guys make me blush.   Kiss  (And quilted, I saw my scrabble coasters in your glass cabinet in some pic you posted awhile ago, and was absolutely giddy that someone actually liked my crafting that much. Seriously, I was floored.)

And lest anyone think that I don't get as good as I give, here's the awesomeness awaiting me when I arrived home today after a loooooong day of work.

From the lovely oneredboot, two checkbook covers, four knitted squares and an awesome card that is going directly into my altered art/atc epherma pile. The knit squares are the very first ones (yea!) for my Craftster afghan and will always hold a special place in my heart. I love how different they are - I was figuring I'd just get plain ol' garter stitch - what a spoiler you are, oneredboot! And the checkbook covers are perfect. I explained to oneredboot that I keep losing my checkbooks and needed something pretty to help me keep track of them. I didn't know she was going to send me both of the ones I needed, though!   Shocked  Thanks so much, oneredboot, I love it all!

And from nofury, there were two packages for the two times she claimed me (at least so far!)  Cheesy  The first was my custom return address stamp. I'm in love with it! I have a new obsession - pelicans - and nofury found the perfect stencil for it. She created the artwork and had it ordered special just for little ol' me. I love how hefty this guy is - this puppy will last me for years! And I wanted to block out my actual address (stay away, internet pervs!), but it's the same font as my name. It really is absolutely perfect in every single way and lots of you guys will see it in person someday as I'll be using it on every single one of my swap packages (and the crappy bills, too)!

The second package was a wisty surprise. Some lovely, super-soft and very cheery wristwarmers and some awesome "happy homemaker" notecards. The wristwarmers are perfect, nofury, and they came at a perfect time. Our shop office isn't heated (just a spacewarmer) and my hands were going numb today when I was working up proposals. These guys will keep my hands warm for sure! And I love how soft they are, they're gonna be perfect! (She also included some extra yarn, just in case, and the uber-cute flowers you see on there are attached with pins, so I can put 'em on something else if I want.) Nofury, I don't have the card in front of me, but I think you said they were knit from Belgium yarn? Man, I feel spoiled! And the notecards are perfect - my hubby's going to get one of these mailed to him for sure!   Grin

Thank you so, so much oneredboot and nofury - I feel incredibly lucky and spoiled to have been chosen by you two. You are both amazing crafters and Craftsters and I can't thank you enough for cheering up my day!

YAY!!! I'm so glad you liked everything!!! The wrist warmers were my first attempt with dpn's, and I freakin' loved it! The instant I finished yours, I made some for me with a 2x2 rib: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=239757.msg2637348#msg2637348 .

You're correct, the yarn is from Belgium, and I just want to hug it all the time. It's easily the SOFTEST acrylic EVER. You'd think it was made from clouds. Seriously.

Oh, and if you wear that wrist warmer on the other hand, the flower is on the top!  Wink

I was so stressing about that stamp. I can't stand not to see it in person first, but it's silly to pay shipping twice.

I'm so glad you liked everything. You do send WONDERFUL packages, and I was hoping to be able to send yous something you can enjoy as much as I've enjoyed what you've sent me.

If anyone else wants a stamp, put it on your list!

Asphalt Queen, glad you liked everything!  The knit squares are moss stitch, knit stitch, moss stitch/garter stitch stripes, and cables (i think that one was upside down in the photo).  looking forward to seeing the whole finished blanket eventually!

I received a fabulous scarf from nofury.  I need to apologize though as the pictures are still forthcoming.  First my oldest ran off with the scarf (and still has it but she has consented to pictures  Smiley ) an dnow I hav emisplaced the camera.  So, nofury, if you have pictures feel free to post them but I am hoping the camera turns up shortly.

So, I got my awesome apron from the lovely Therisa today! Brighten up the ridiculous line I had to wait in to send my package out to la_chrystelle(on its way to The Netherlands now!). Knew I shouldn't have went on Tax Day, but I didn't want to wait any longer.  Anywho, on with the pic-whoring:

Modeled by my lovely desk chair:

On me, not showing off my butt, but demonstrating how the apron securely protects the area I tend to wipe my hands on:

Oh, I am so happy! It's too pretty to cook in!

I got a lovely package from shiitake today - a bundle of 1970s teen mag pictures that had me ROFL (reminded me of the UK mag 'Jackie" I used to get then) , and loads of lovely bits and pieces, plus some ATCs and origami paper that is almost too nice to use! THanks again

I recieved a wonderful package from Sajona.  In her package she included two Bruda World of Fashion magazines <squeal!!> and I have already found two things I really want to make for this summer (surprisingly enough I MIGHT already have the fabric as well)!!  She included some great yarn, a really cute needle holder and two sets of needles!!  A needle guage and two really nice patterns.  One is a 50s<??> style and is from a company in England and the other is a regency doll dress (also english).  The dress pattern is really pretty.  I can see a spring outfit of this one (I have so many things I want to make I really should plan a year in advance  Cheesy)

Thank you so much for a wonderful package!!
