Gorgeous stuff all.  I'm so jealous of you sewing types.  Guess I should practice?

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

Unfortunately i forgot to take photos before sending  Undecided

The box has spring flower papers covering it and a embroidered flower ribbon on the lid, felt and foam inside to protect the contents and a pretty yellow flower on the side.

Inside were a pair of silver earrings each with three dangly silver flowers.

Im really annoyed that the glass in the frame broke i thought the bubblewrapping would stop that, but they are 2 youngsters giving a flower to their love.

The jewellery set was based on Jennickell 's questionairre answer of "I am really fond of like 60's 70's retro, vintage hippies type". There is a bracelet, a pair of earrings, a pendant and two rings all matching with technicolour chain and hippy-type flowers. They are done so that when you wear them the flowers should all face front.

Im glad your kids liked the candy Jennickell Cheesy

Sewpie, I'm so glad you got it, and you're happy with it!! It was great fun to make this stuff. Great idea for framing the drawings!

I've totally wisted that owl folder. Is that applique?

And BDDesigns, can you say where you have found the fabric for that other folder? It's really cool!

I made the applique by myself out of felt. The other fabrics, ehm, I bought them on a fabric market here in the Netherlands.

Take a look at my blog with cool tutorials and my postcards(owls)

Wow! Lucky! I so need to find a local fabric source that isn't Joann's.

Especially since I can't stand polyester and that is practically all the apparel fabric they carry.   

I love instant gratification almost as much as I love parentheses!

Oooohhhh...that shiny jewelry set has me hypnotized.....   Shocked
(the smiley thing says this face is shocked, but for this application he is hyp..no..tized...)

Those cross-stitched Sunbonnet Sues are adorable.

Wow! After much drama, yellowblanket's package is finally out of my mailbox! (No blowtorch required, thankfully.)

I'm a lucky, lucky girl! Pictures will have to wait for tomorrow, but here is what she sent:

two cute knitted caps with flower embellishments (one blue with a yellow flower, one with varigated yarn ranging from a pink to a copper color)
a pair of blue knitted slippers with flowers that are on my feet right now (How did yellowblanket guess that my feet are always cold?)
a yellow rosey washcloth
seeds! a big bag for butterfly plants!
and a copy of Knitting for Dummies! 

I love instant gratification almost as much as I love parentheses!

Although we hadnt discussed it she sent quite a bit over the requirements, which is VERY nice of her, but i now feel really bad for sticking to it.  Sad Sorry Jennickell.

A shop bought address book with pretty paper stuck to the front

That's a gorgeous package.  Darn these spoilers and their generous chocolate-y ways.   Grin
