I'm so happy you liked it all. Anxiety level dropping... slightly. And thanks Tar for posting your tute link.

Also, I LOVE loudxmouse's head bands! I need to make myself some of those. The removable accessories is beyond awesome!

Slingmomma, yay! Did you really super enjoy spinning or what?
I got those frogs at Hobby Lobby, btw, for whoever asked...

I got my ball! She went with my purple theme and sent LOTS of yarn. Oh my, what to do with it? She didn't get the patterns sent so I didn't get to crochet it out like I wanted to, but it was hard enough just unwrapping with my Alice all over it so I guess it's just as well. All I know is I'm not allowed to get any more yarn until I clear out some of my stash: I still have a bunch from the last MYB swap and I've been spinning like mad, on top of the 3 drawers I already had! Here's the loot:
Yarn:

Store bought goods: some envelope stickers with my initial on them, soem note cards and a matching magnetic note book, some crayons, and a little turtle (I think in honor of one of my MOHs?)

Also included that I didn't get photographed were a skirt for Alice and a shirt for Russ, both purple!
Handmade goodies: small candle (not pictured), journal, earrings, stitch markers, book marks,turtle embroidery, necklace, car, hair bows, soap, potholder, mini pincushion, and my favorite thing was the purple tree pendant! I love it! Sorry there's not a better shot of it but sorry, I'm lazy. I'm not sleeping much these days.


Thanks lady!

I'm so glad you liked it all!!! I did do the turtle goodies for your MOH's and the tree was included in those too! I tried to do as much "research" as possible! Oh and your kidlets got the top and little skirt because I work at Old Navy and I get an awesome discount!

Your patterns should be there soon! I think you will really enjoy them and they should take up atleast some of the yarn!

I'm a moron. I mixed up the swap info when I was putting in feedback today, giving some of you another swap.. I've already filed a ticket, so it should be resolved soon.

I recieved my ball yesterday  Grin it was awesome getting it so fast!!




and here is when my camera died and I changed to my cell phone because I refused to wait until the camera charged  Grin



























































I got spoilt! The ami pattern is one I was looking at buying really soon so Im thrilled I got it  Cheesy and now that Ive posted pics I can sit down and whipe wee Elton up without feeling too guilty  Cheesy

The only thing I wasnt sure what it was is the long black thing? It reminded me of a hook roll but I wasnt sure where they went...?

Teehee, it is a hook roll. I guess with the fabric all being the same the slots are a bit camouflaged lol. I look forward to seeing pics of your completed Elton!

Here's a couple of clearer pics of the loot:



I can't wait for your ball to get here! I feel like pouncing the postman everyday!!
