Wow, that yarn is so pretty and maybe someday I'll be able to spin so well.  Smiley  It looks awesome.

I also love that owl pouch!  And the washcloth is adorable.  Like everything else.  I saw that owl fabric at JoAnn yesterday and I so wanted to get it but... I really don't need any more fabric.  Smiley  I'm so happy to see something awesome made of it!  Maybe I'll have to go get some next time I'm in the area.

Where did I put my pliers this time???

I received from Norahkate on Friday.  My camera battery was dead on Fri., and then I spent most of yesterday in a wire-wrapping class.  So, finally, I am posting the goodies Norah sent to me.

First, let me say that Norah knows just how addicted to World of Warcraft I am (and hubby too).  So, she used that as a theme for my package!   Grin

A hoodie with the Horde symbol appliqued on the sleeves, a pillow, a t-shirt (both of which have been filched by hubby), an amigurumi and a cute hello kitty watch.   Cheesy  (Ignore the polka-dotted fabric.  That is a project I am working on.)

The amigurumi is my Tauren Hunter - she rocks!

And Norah Rocks too!!  Thanks so much!

Oh my goodness!  I got the rest of my package from Pinkleo and it's so much fun!  Look at all my beautiful treasures!

First a beautiful hand carved bookplate stamp with my initials in it:

Next some Twilight goodies, starting with a sparkly felt apple pin:

a Twilight themed inchie collage:

and an awesome Twilight charm bracelet:

Next, for my Harry Potter potter obsession, awesome golden snitch earrings!

An absolutely beautiful Tree of Life suncatcher!  It's hard to note the scale in the picture, but it's about 6" in diameter, and currently in my living room window:

And finally, the most awesome crocheted fingerless mittens!  They are super warm, and the colors are stunning!  I've been wearing them all around for the last two days.  And they are totally going to come to work with me since it's so cold in my costume shop, but I need my fingers free to work.

I received my super awesome package from sewphie! Are you ready to see the coolest piece of embroidery EVER?! Get your wisting fingers ready.........here it is!

It's on this bag:

And here's some close-ups. Check out her hair!! And the hat and her face! I am so blown away by sewphie's insane skills! And by how much fill stitching she did!  Shocked

Isn't she just GORGEOUS?! I love her so much! I've been staring at her ever since I took her out of the package! Cheesy Okay, here's the rest of my amazing loot. First up we've got a group shot of the whole package (minus some candy - Yum!):

Clockwise from the top we've got lots of delicious candy, a mirror, a needlebook, some embroidered patches, the coolest card ever that's totally getting framed, a bracelet, and some chickies. Here's a close-up of the mirror:

How cool is that?! I love the embroidery and the fabric is from Africa (or South America? I can't remember which but it's cool either way). How did you make this sewphie? I love it!

Here's close-ups of the needlebook and bracelet (both of which I LOVE!):

The little scissors on the needlebook are adorable!

Thank you SO, SO much sewphie!! I love every single thing and I am thrilled we finally swapped with each other!  Smiley
