I have just received my angel package from  macreede, everything was very nice  worth the wait.
First the cup and coffee/tea with some Hershey's chocolate kisses in the top.

The beautifully crocheted coasters and warmer.

And a crocheted hand towel holder with a very nice tea towel.

Thankyou very much macreede,I really like the stuff you have sent I will try the coffee tonight when its a bit cooler here. Smiley

So I guess my partner never received  Undecided  but barbalot said I should post pics of what I sent anyway.

I didn't get pictures of everything and I handspun some yarn for my partner from coffee dyed roving which I can't find a picture of the finish object but here it is in it's dye bath.  It also had some swirls of dark brown and raspberry merino, thick thin and about 100 yards.  It was my medium sized project.  And it smelled like heaven after it was finished!  Hopefully I can find a finished pic somewhere  Huh

This was straight from her wists and it the chemical symbol for caffeine.  I made it from Shrinky and strung it on a SS chain.  This I was really proud of since it took a long time to cut all those two holes in the middle

This was also from her wists, a small bottle top pincushion and I made it into a cup-o-cocoa (also in one of her favorite colors)

And then I made her a to-go cozy with buttons (She loves a buttons!)

I didn't get all the goodies in a picture since I thought that she would be able to take one.  But I send her along a coffee mug from a local artist.  It had this beautiful deep brown glaze on it and was perfect for a cup of tea.  I also sent her her favorite cocoa (land-o-lakes mint chocolate) and a couple of sweets.  And I found some amazing loose-leaf teas at our local co-op so I sent her a variety.

Well, hopefully one day she still receives it - I would be just so bummed that I work on all of it for nothing.

Hi, I'm not in this swap, but I wanted to stop by and say that the cup-o-cocoa pin cushion is adorable as is the to-go cup cozy Smiley

Aww gerrijo, everything you sent is gorgeous!  I'm so sad I never received it, I love the necklace.  I'm so sorry you never got your package either, I worked hard on it.  Damn the postal system.

I love the crocheted goodies especially the bookmark Smiley The pincushion looks lush!
I wouldn't have thought of dyeing fibers with coffee..............ooooh, i bet the smell was gorgeous. Does it smell once it's dried? That would be awesome! Grin
