TAOJ, I want to steal that yarn.  It is amazingly beautiful.

Actually it's a blue/ turquoise/ chocolate brown mix, from my LYS. I am not a sock knitter (yet) so I was trusting the sales lady in that it's supposed to be enough for a pair. That was the "oh, wait, there's supposed to be a budget?" item. I was really good on everything else though, I promise, everything I crafted came from my stash.

The Mexican hot chocolate is very different from European styles, partly because of the extra spices. If you like big mugs use 2 squares, one square is about right for an 8 ouce cup. For ultra authentic flavor add a pinch of black pepper (not kidding) it's sooo good! I can't wait for cooler weather to drink hot drinks again.

The bag & pouch are machine washable & dryable Smiley I don't remember if I put that in there or not.

I'm really glad you liked it all! I look forward to seeing what you do with the yarn Smiley

I received an awesome box from kimtastic 2 days ago. Here is a list of the categories/items:

Local: a project bag from her fav bookstore, a book of O'Henry short stories (he is from her home town), Dolly Madison Mints (first Lady from her home town) and a cute little tub of Vicks Vapor Rub. I have never-ever tried it before! I almost want a stuffy nose just to see if it works...... Grin
Squishy: Polyfill!!!!!

Blue: Alpaca yarn (mmmm. so soft)
Letter "C": Cotton yarn
Flexible: A pattern book that can be used for several different projects....Versatility!

Unusual: A fleur de lis double pointed needle book. With needles! And a pattern! So cool! (How did you know I am totally obsessed with Fleur de lis right now? Did I put it in my questionnaire?)
Senders choice: lock and key stitch markers-I used them today! I LOVE them!

Thanks Kim so much for a great swap! Everything is so nice! (I have to say, I have already used most of the polyfill, and the alpaca!!)

I got my awesome package from seamshistoric yesterday.  It showed up just before I was going out the door for work and I wanted a peek so I don't have pictures of how nicely everything was packaged up, whoops!

First up,  senders's choice:  Jolly Rancher's!  I won't lie, I used scissors to cut the back of the bag open so I could eat them but the package would still look nice for pictures Smiley  Next is something local:  bracelets made by a Native American that she got at the annual Festival of the Hills.  These are like friendship bracelets, only so much cooler than anything I ever managed to make.  And flexible:  Harrisville New England Shetland Wool.  I love two-ply shetland.  I'm going to have to find a cool project for it.

Next is the letter "C":  cute, comfy, and not a cat, with cables!  Pattern for the Roma Cardigan!

Something blue:  These little stitch markers are just like tiny jewels.  Very pretty, and just the right size. 

Something unusual:  a Christmas ornament (alternately, if I didn't celebrate Christmas, this could be a Joker ball--I must have mentioned how much I enjoyed The Dark Knight).  Very cool, is this a temari ball? 

And best for last, a big squishy to satisfy my obsession with a certain animal:  BAT BAG!  This is awesome, I laughed so hard when I opened it up.  His red eyes are the buttons holding the bag closed:

Pajama pants action shot:

This guy is full of pockets, too, including a really cool drawstring pouch built right into his body.  Your sewing skills boggle my mind, seamshistoric.  It's hard to get a picture, but you can at least see the lining here:

Thanks so much, I love everything, especially the bag!

that bat bag is awesome!

amy im so glad you liked everything! the vicks is amazing.  greensboro (to be such a yuppie craphole) has like a stupid amount of history (sit ins, revolutionary war battlefield, etc etc) but my favorite has always been that we can claim vabor rub as our very own!

Hi Everyone! I had to rely on the kindness of others to get pictures of the fantastic stuff I received from Meganlorraine. Honestly, I am awed and amazed, and a little embarrassed by her creativity and generosity. She's an absolute little stinker who ricjly deserves a good "time out". Smiley

Here we go (and again, these were taken by one of my kids as dear old mom's camera is crapped out again):

A needle roll with a bonus N hook (did the hook fairy tell you I'm always leaving my hooks in my yarn stash?). Hedgehog love!!

A hat (too big? nope! Big Irish bowling ball here. Just perfect!)  and the world's most perfect candy bars:

Oh my goodness...the most amazing pleated tote/WIP bag. Love it!!

This one is awfully hard to see, and I'm sorry about that - this is THE most incredibly soft and amazing mohair - 2 balls - navy and gray. I am speechless. I never indulged in it for myself, but now I have visions of webby shawls dancing in my head. And EARRINGS - luscious dangly earrings featuring 2 balls of yarn each. So very creative and fun!! Better put some up on your website, Miss M, because I imagine the LYS ladies will ask. Smiley

Oh golly, this one tickled me to death. A beautiful hedgehog pouch (check the embroidery!!) filled to the brim with handy knitting gizmos, such as skein nets, row counter, and yarn needles. A treasure!

And an outside shot of the needle roll! Love this to pieces!! AND a sheep-covered emery board from the LYS - the gift that keeps on giving. Smiley

THANK YOU, Miss Meganlorrain!! You are an awesome and creative young person with a very bright future ahead of you...and an adorable brat. Thanks again!!

The xmas/Joker ball is actually yarn needlefelted onto a styrofoam ball; just don't tug too hard and any ends.  Cheesy But I think it's pretty secured. The only glue involved was for the sequins.

Here's a close-up pic of the bracelets, which I think are absolutely gorgeous.

And there are more pictures of the Bat Bag now in the Purses category, linkie here:

I sent to Heini who has recived so I can post pics for her here. Smiley

First of all:
C is for closure
The local bit is a needlecase made from a old case from a tailor that lived around here in the 1800:s. With a more modern touch...

Unusual is a shrunken towel that expands if you put it in hot water.
Squishy is a little velvet "friend" that is rellly nice to squeeze when your stressed or have chrocheted too hard.. It's filled with linen seed.

Blue is blue alpaca yarn that comes from my stash. It's actually a lot lighter then the pic shows.
Flexible. Wool is always a bit flexible fibre. Therefor: more yarn. Smiley

Sender's choice is a bag I made when we both discovered our mutual love for Twin Peaks. It's simply a Twin Peaks bag, with the text " the owls are not what they seems to be" on one side and the silouhette of an owl at the other.
