HA! The kitty upchuck pillow made me snort-laugh.   Grin

I love that you made the cats personalized, great job getting the coloring so correct!

Both sides of the pillow are awesome!  I admire your neddlework skills!

The two aprons are great!  What a lovely mother/daughter picture as well...and I don't blame your son for wanting his own apron...I have had many requests from young men for their own aprons--and not just for barbequeing outside! Cheesy

I am fascinated now by nuno felting...it sounds like another fiber project that I would love to learn!  I love organza--so wispy and light...

The Star Trek bag and little case are very well done as well...not sure if I posted about them already but I saw them in new projects and loved them!

I am jealous of the patchwork skirts that I have been seeing around the boards...love yours junggril--the colors are so you!

Annchen is having some problems posting her photos at the moment so here are the ones I took of her package before sending.

I made a bagsket that was on her wist for use as a knitting bag. I pieced coordinating purple fabrics together for the top and gave it a matching purple drawstring.

The lining matches one of the outside fabrics and has lots of pockets. They are different sizes to hold various knitting accoutrements including one that is the perfect size to hold a pen for marking patterns!

I saw these stitchmarkers on her wist and just had to make a set when I found an exact match for the beads! They have large clasps so they can be used for both crochet as well as small knitting on smaller needles.

Finally I included a pair of yarn ball earrings based on these ones by phoenixfiredesigns that she had wisted.

I am totally intrigued by the bagsket, I love the colours you used too and the rainbow stitch markers!

I love that whole package!  The bagskets have always intrigued me, the stitch markers are adorable as are the yarn earrings.  I need to befriend some knitters/crocheters to make them earrings.  Cheesy

I have never heard of a bagsket, but I love it!  Grin I think that would be very handy!

I met up with edenkitty yesterday to exchange our swap items! We both happen to love a certain fabulous yogurt shop and it was kind of in between our houses so it was perfect!

Guess what she made me?? Two things off of my wist!

First up, this lovely cowl! I can't knit so it totally blew my mind. I love it! It's a great wheat color. Plus I think she said she figured it out without a pattern? whoa!

And an action shot...not to toot my own horn, but I think I look pretty good in a cowl and a tank top...considering I just baby-sat my 3 nephews for 3 hours and barely made it out alive! Wink

AND! A pair of knit fingerless gloves! She said they are a wool bamboo blend! I love em! I really really wanted a pair of these since I have rheumatoid arthritis and my hands and fingers hurt so bad in the winter when they get cold. Yay!

Thanks so much Eden! It was really fun meeting you (and your sis and hubby!) and I love the things you made me!

I took a really cute pic of Eden with what I made her, but I don't think I actually asked if it was ok to post it, so I'll wait to hear back on that Wink

That bagsket is so cool! Definately need one of those!

Mare you look so pretty in the cowl, and I love the colors of the gloves!
