I love batik too! Really, Lindsay614 must be psychic or something. Also, I love anything with tentacles, but that should be fairly obvious by now... haha.

Thanks for the feedback! Super fast!

I received from Alchamy513 the same day she got my package!! Wowsa.... here's the wonderful loot! Jessica is a talented yarnie and jewelery artist! I can tell all the details and love that went into making this package, and you'll see it too...

Are you ready? Here's everything...

Stuffed whale! I loved the detail--this guy even has a blowhole! This guy just makes me smile...

Seahorse necklace--action shot. Really pretty colors!

Sea turtle charm, starfish earrings and dolphin earrings! I wear a lot of dangly earrings, so these are sure to get lots of use!

Cute stuffed penguin--I love Arctic animals! The yarn is really thick and pretty too... which leads to...

An awesome carry-all bag for me to take on vacation! I told Jessica one of my favorite things about the sea was taking cruises...hehe. Smiley This is my favorite, and I absolutely cannot wait to use this... my husband loves it too! The yarn is really thick and I think this bag is going to be very durable. It's also in two of my favorite colors, and it also reminds me of the ocean!

This is an amazing package!! Thanks so much Alchamy513--I feel very lucky to have had you as a partner!

And I'm so glad you liked all your stuff as well. I thought the batik prints would go well with your room's color scheme, so I'm really glad I went that direction!

That's an awesome haul, lindsay! That fuzzy baby penguin is too cute for words and the crochet bag is so cool! I love granny squares. That seahorse is gorgeous - the colors look fab on you.

In other news...I RECEIVED!! Our amazing organizer sent me the most incredible package. I can't wait to share it with you all. I snapped photos but I absolutely must get this blackberry cobbler in the oven. I will post very soon though!

I am SO excited about the package that TheSaphhireMoon sent me. She is so talented and thoughtful and she crafted the most amazing sea goodies for me. I am so in love with this stuff!!!

First up, a marvelous tote bag made with the greatest sea printed panels! I'm going to use this to take my magazines and sunscreen to the beach. It really makes me feel like summer is close!

Next, a zippered pouch. You can never have enough of these. I've already transferred my chapsticks into it Smiley. Notice the super cute dolphin charm.

The jewelry, oh the jewelry!! I just love it. The turquoise colors are so beautiful and just my taste. The shell pendant is stunning and so smooth and soft to the touch. It really feels so good to wear.

TSM sent another beautiful long beaded necklace but I was already wearing it by the time I took pictures. You can kind of see it in this action shot. I've been scampering about the house in my new jewelry all night Smiley

Prepare to have your jaw dropped...TSM made me the most magnificent button art!! I can't even put into words how much I love it. I'm so thrilled to have this unique piece!!

I also received a lovely little fragile sand dollar and a great seashell that is being used as a ring holder in the bathroom already Smiley.

Thank you SO much TheSapphireMoon. I had so much fun being partnered with you and I could not be more thrilled with my loot!!

The crocheted penguin is too sweet, and that bag looks like it took some patience, Alchamy! Smiley

Lovely crochet bag, and the ami's are adorable!!

I loved that seahorse art SO much I had to make one for me too Smiley  I posted it in the 50 projects craftalong and need to find a good place to hang it on my wall soon.  The tote bag is made from 2 panels of a pillow panel fabric I had from the last SLS I never did anything with.  The handles are made from the selvage edge cuz it had a neat fishie border that was just wide enough to work out perfect!  Zip pouch was from a scrap batik piece I got off Etsy a while back...totally anticipating a R2 of this swap, I was thinking WAAAAY ahead on that one.  I LOVE turquoise jewelry, so I had to share the luv a bit <3  Glad you liked everything!  Keep all those great goodies coming, folks!
