Everybody stuff is so cool, it hard to pick my favourites.
Love the colours in the Juno bag and the journal is lovely.
The Dragon and rose embroidery is Ab fab and of course I love the skully stuff.
Hello Kitty purse/wallet is so cute and looks really well made.
The painted pokemon is fab, great work and I adore the pink up girl collages. Fantastic Idea.
Finally must say that the clothes peg are pretty and I WANT the chicken one.  Grin

I have received a great package from addicted2knitting!

My themes were:

1  Sunflowers
2  Tulips
3  Scarecrows
4  Summer flowers
5  Crochet

She sent me:

3 interchangeable tea towel toppers to hang on my stove and also 4 tea towels.  There are designs stitched around the edges of 3 of them and they say - tulips, crochet diva and sunflowers.  It's kind of hard to see in the picture but there is a black hanger on the top of the crochet one and that hanger goes through a hole in the top and is attached to a yarn covered jar ring.  That comes out of the crochet one and can then be inserted into either of the other toppers (very ingenious!)


and an action shot of one combination


Magnets with summer flowers and sunflowers in them


A cute picture featuring summer flowers (this was based on a wisted picture I had and she even went so far as to use the stamp cutout I preferred!)


and a close up of one set of cutouts


A very cute scarecrow, that will be a wonderful addition to my fall collection!  She said she based it on a picture she saw in a coloring book and the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz and I thought that was funny because just the night before my package arrived, we had watched the original show on TV!


A purchased tote bag with a sunflower (there is also a key chain attached to the zipper)  This is a great bag and is going to become my work in progress bag as I'm working on an afghan and need all this room!  I absolutely love the color!


Scrapbook paper with sunflowers


What a great package!!!  Thanks!!!

Needing an on-line break ... I'll be back later in 2018.

I'm thrilled you liked everything, Glenda  Cheesy

I was kindaworried about the windchime because I had to sort of reconstruct it from the pieces of another windchime which was so fiddly and I kept thinking "this is so going to just fall apart  Shocked" but, yep  Smiley

Sorry for the late reply, too, I've been away from home without much internet access for the past few days.

Homerof2, that scarecrow is ADORABLE!  Grin

Okay folks!  Get those wisting buttons ready!  Here's the lovely package I received from Crafter21:

First, a group shot:

My first theme:  paisley

She sent a fantastic little bag with a pincushion and a gorgeous needlebook (which was her first time embroidering--she did a stellar job!!!)

My second theme:  nature

She sent a beautiful nest bowl, and a lovely branch necklace (how did she know I love rose quartz?!)  She also sent a beautiful hand painted journal, which is in another picture.

Closeup of the necklace:

My third theme:  cherries

She sent...and how funny is this...cherry dishtowels, a cherry apron, a cherry candle, and a cute cherry switchplate cover (funny because remember the retro print apron, and embroidered dishtowels I sent for her retro themed kitchen?!--great minds think alike!)

My fourth theme:  fairytales

Her boyfriend helped her to make a beautiful printed tote with my favorite Disney princess on it!  She also included a cute postcard, a great holographic mousepad, and a Belle figurine (must be nice living so close to Disney World!)

And my fifth theme:  fantasy

For which she sent a domino mask (also a love; how did she know?!), a wire-wrapped tiara, and a beaded bracelet--which I suppose you can see in the group shot, as it's apparently not in this picture.   Undecided  And finally, the item that made me actually come to tears:  a collaged? version of my absolute favorite wedding picture and a screenshot of the Final Fantasy movie, so that it looks as though Vincent is marrying us!!!!  Seriously, tears, here guys.  It's beautiful, and so personal, and just unbelievably touching.  You can also see the lovely journal that she painted (and embossed with my name on the inside front page).

Oh, and I forgot, because DH has already stolen them! some beautiful handmade stickers...seriously, these things look professional, I have no idea how she did it, but they're gorgeous glittery fairies, and she macramed him a bracelet (that fits!  It's amazing!), and made him a dice bag.  Was I spoiled or what?!  Everything she sent is so beautiful, and already has found a loving place in our home.
