Oooo the scarf!  Oooo the pincushion (wisting that) and Oooooo the bag - seriously great package.  And as for that knitting catalogue - absolutely priceless!  It's the guy in the rusty coloured sweater directly under the post-it note who's doing it for me right now!!!!!!!

Hey Katie I'm so glad you liked the package...I had a great time crafting all of these items for you!!!  You give me too much credit tho...the purse fabric was pre-embroidered (curtain fabric I think) and I colored it with markers...I am not tallented enough to do that kind of stitching, I can embroider a mean blob though Wink

Can't wait to get your package (tomorrow!!!)

Oh, that's awesome! I think it looked so cool with the embroidered stitches mixed with the drawn lines. You are so very wise and creative, young lady!  Cheesy

You're so clever with the way you reused objects and made them unique and lovely. The belt strap was so cool! I never would have thought to do that.

I am wearing the bracelet now and can't wait to go home to practice knitting some argyle sweaters!  Wink

 got my package from jessiesmudge today--yipee!

there was some drama starting out when the post office LOST THE PACKAGE--aarrrgh!  i had to keep calling them about it, and i think we can all close our eyes and imagine this kind of interaction. it was painful. "well ma'am, according to the tracking number, the package is here.  so come pick it up." "yes, that is the problem. it's NOT here or at your office." "well, that sounds like it is the sender's problem.  they will have to deal with it." "no, they got the DC so that this wouldn't happen." "oh, there is a DC number?" "yes, you just used it to look up my package." "oh yes.  well it says here it is in the office for pick up, so just come by." "i WAS just at your office and it WASN'T there..."  and so on.  but finally my package and i were united and these were the things inside:

well, well, well...what have we here?

let's take a closer look:

it looks like coasters!  jessie sews like a professional--look at these!  they came bundled up in a little green ribbon.  once they were set free into the wild this is what i found:

beautiful bright colors that popped against the grey background!  jessie knew my favorite color was grey, so they are PERFECT.  i adore these two patterns together.  these coasters were a great idea and am using one RIGHTNOW.ASITYPE. 

next up for presentation is this amazing bag she sewed:

i brought it to work to show my friend and she exclaimed "is that a new vera bradley?"  she is a HUGE vera fan (she had two such bags with her), so she was shocked when i told her my friend in oregon made it for me.  jessie is a true craftswoman. really high quality bag. check out the details inside:

this is perfect for me because i love little bags.  i really do.  it feeds my need to micro-organize. so i have great plans for this little bag already!

so you're probably jealous by now. i don't blame you. i would be, too.  but wait, the last, medium item...which seriously, with all of the work that must have gone into this must make it a large item...a superawesomefantastic quilted puppy blanket!:

look at this!!!  look!  it's amazing.

jessie used the most beautiful stitches.  swirls on the borders and what she called 'stomaching' on the center piece.  it's insane.  and look at the adorable fabric.  it has happy puppies and kitties with hearts, LOVE IT!:

and it came with a puppy:

ok, not really.  but this blanket came just in time.  we just got our new pug puppy, so i had to take a picture of him wrapped in it.  this blanket will be perfect in his little den so that it is warm and soft and snuggy.

i just want to thank jessie for everything--she is an amazing craftster and i am really lucky to have been paired up with her.  i am thankful for all of the things she sent me Smiley  i loved it all, thanks jessie!

(p.s. now i'm REALLY worried that my end sucks...eeek!)
