What amazing packages so far - I especially love all the tea themed embroidery  Grin

And I received my own package of amazingness from Perfectly Bohemian today!! She did some awesome stalking and made me some crafts I absolutely love. They are perfect. Be warned - I got excited and took a fair few pictures  Cheesy

The box looked so pretty when I opened it - here are some shots so you can relive it with me!!

My very own Wes Anderson inspired coffee press cozy. After we made sure we were thinking of the same thing (I called it a coffee plunger and Perfectly Bohemian knows it as a french press) she made me this gorgeous felt cozy. It features Moonrise Kingdom (one of my all time favourite Wes Anderson films), Life Aquatic and Fantastic Mr Fox - so amazing. Look at the beautiful stitching and shapes. A work colleague admired it as I was using it today on my coffee plunger

A needlefelted teapot - I had a polymer clay one pinned and this looks just as spectacular in felting. Also more functional as I can use it as a pincushion. Beautiful colours and felt work - you are a genius Perfectly Bohemian  Cheesy There was also this great sectioned carrier for a variety of teas with blackboard tape labels so I can change it as I change the tea in the different sections. Fantastic idea!

And last but definitely not least is my teas and an action shot of the tea I had this afternoon - so yummy. It was White Christmas. There was also Choco-Nut, Chocolate Mint, Mad Tea Party (which smells divine) and some tea bags of Fiery Chai, Focus and Cucumber White. I was thoroughly spoiled.

Thank you so much Perfectly Bohemian - you made my day!! I will enjoy sipping my beautiful teas and escaping to my happy place when work gets hectic!!

I hope yours arrives soon - it has departed the Los Angeles sorting facility today  Cheesy

Donniesgirl, I love the switch of ruffles and embroidery on the apron!
Your sewing/stitching skillz are awesome!
PS: The lip balm is delicious!!!

Thanks!  They were fun & I got a little addicted to Urban Threads.   Embarrassed  I'm stitching up a shirt with a big deer on the back for my son right now...I got myself one of those Earl Grey lip balms too.   Grin

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

Everyone's stuff looks so great (and cozy!  Smiley ) I was finally able to send yesterday. There was one element I didn't want to have to leave out and it came in on Saturday.

I am in utter awe of the Wes Anderson French Press Cozy!
We love Foxy around here.  Wink

Excellent TARDIS mug.
If it's anything like mine, when you slide it on a countertop it should make the landing sound.
In a purely analog fashion, of course.

Ooh, the little needle felted tea pot is lovely! And such a detailed cozy too. Oh, and I'd call that a French press too - or my company sells it as a TEA press, since you can also make looseleaf with it!

I received a fantastic package from whenindoubtsew today! She was so generous with her crafting and sneaked in some extras that are quite awesome.

First, a just-out-of-the-envelope shot with everything still wrapped:

The cookie got a little crumbly, but I'm surprised after the long trek that it wasn't in worse condition. There are 3 large samples of tea: Daintree Blend (Australian black tea, hibiscus, blackberries, & orange); Japanese Garden (sencha with peach, corn flowers, rose petals, & calendula); and Arctic Fire (black China and Ceylon tea with fruit, mint, and cornflowers). There is also a "Friendship Tea" felt badge with a clip on the back.

Inside the tissue paper were all these goodies:

A whole TWO tea press cozies. I have the urge to buy a second small tea press so I never have to take them off! One is my first Sherlock craft item!! Sherlock and John portraits with "221B" in the middle. The fabric even matches their wallpaper! Then there are wonderfully hand-embroidered teacups and teapot on the second (in my favorite colors). There is also a Union Jack fabric on the back that I forgot to get a photo of. To top it off, she sent a beautiful mug rug with three "whimsical woodland" scenes <3 It has pretty lace and lots of delicate stitches. The extra is a tea strainer set with the classic blue willow design on it Smiley

Thanks so much, whenindoubt!!

Here are the tealicious goodies I received from Alchamy513.

The whole lot: An apron made with fabric I love!  I had one similar to this on my pinterest page.  Awesome!!!  A teacup and saucer bird feeder and a hanger to hang it up with.  Also from my pinterest board- so cool.  An assortment of teas to please!

A close up of the bird feeder:

The apron!!!!!!

Thanks Alchamy513 for the fantastic goodies!  You were so observant when it came to looking at my interests on pinterest!  Grin Grin Grin
