Oooh I love those flowers with the buttons in the middle, llisaredd! Those are the kind of flowers your partner could make a tute on for the rest of us who aren't so lucky! (hint hint please maybe?)

Now I went to a Motorcycle rally last night and left my camera OOPS... funny enough it is at the Radio Station so I have to go next week and pick it up soooo...I have to go later tonight and buy a new one so I have one for Rolling Thunder in the morning....I should be packing but NO I am doing everything but that LOL......

I LOVE MY PACKAGE and THANK YOU SO MUCH ...If you have pics BIO please post them if not I will have to wait a while as the movers come Monday...Yep BBQ with the movers LOL...

Uh-oh thats no fun. Sad I'll be able to get pictures posted tomorrow (minus anything bought) when I get back into town. And putting the little one on your dogs collar is such a cute idea.

I may be a hopeless yarn addict but at least I dont share my needles.

Cookiemaker, I believe there is a tutorial somewhere for those flowers.  I know I had seen them when I was researching flowers, but don't remember where.  Perhaps Oneeyedsally can give us the link or tell us how she made it.  She might have made some adjustments and make it clearer for us to follow.

I'm so happy llisaredd (and everyone else!) loves my package!

I received from her and everything she sent is *amazing*! A beautiful watercolor that looks amazing in my new kitchen, photos of flowers that I think are from her garden? If they are your garden must look gorgeous right now! I also got a handpainted picture frame with a cute quote written inside, and flower shrinkydink magnets! I'm so happy to received items using crafts I don't do myself! Thank you llisaredd! I will post pictures later, we just moved yesterday and I have no idea where my camera is.

For the fabric flowers, I found this blog where the author is doing a "31 days of flowers" and she posts a new flower-themed craft every weekday. This one was Day 5. I had a different thing in mind for my last small until I saw this, and I just had to do it! The only thing I did different is two of my flowers have six petals instead of five. She has so many other great ideas too!

Awww...beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!  That totebag, the embroidery, the hat, the bracelet, I must be going hormonal or something, it's all so beautiful I feel a tear coming on at all the talent and care and thoughtfulness in the Craftster world...seriously.  What an amazing community here.  I wish they had a little smiley face for "choked up at the beauty of it all".

Glad you like everything 6iggle.  I was a bit worried the hat would be too small, so I'm glad it fits. 

Sewphie, that embroidery is just gorgeous. 

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

Sorry it took so long to get photos up. Didn't wind up coming home until today.

A zipper pouch: made from scraps of fabric I had and picked up ribbon embroidery which I hadn't done in a while.


She really likes dishcloths so I made three for her: The blue and red were both much darker than the pictures show.

I think that was it except for a few store bought goodies.

I may be a hopeless yarn addict but at least I dont share my needles.
