I received from smileyyogini and myvpackage b is just the lovely warmth I needed to get me set for the coming Snowmageddon predicted for our area.  Here is most of what was sent.  My toddler ran off with the mug and I forgot to retrieve it before bedtime.  Don't worry, its crocheted!  What a need idea that was!  The little one has decided it goes with  his tea set, and who am I to argue?  I will post a pic of it tomorrow.  Anyway, here is the rest of my goodies:

the mug rug is so pretty.  The yarn ball has really cool quilting done to make it seem like wound yarn.  And the coffee cup hoopla will be hung in my kitchen. 

Here's a close-up of the super cool hand carved stamp that looks like a skein of yarn and stitch markers that are clay coffee beans!  I love them and must immediately find a complecated knitting pattern so I can use them! 

And of course my espresso chocolate bar and coffee extras!  Thanks so much, smileyyogini!  I love my package! 

If I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew, I'd sew my true love to my side, and down the creek

That entire package is great!  Even though I don't use them myself, the stitch markers are the best!  They DO look exactly like beans!

I got an awesome package from subee! She sent me a great mug with a crocheted cozy (or is it cozie?) I've always wanted a crochet mug cozy and now I have one!  She also made me two magnets that I adore!!! I am adopting a French bulldog in August and I'm so excited so I squealed out loud when I saw that one. She also sent an adorable mug rug, some yummy homemade mexican hot cocoa, and coffee candy. I can't wait to dig into everything!! Thank you so much subee!

I'm trying to modify the pictures in this post but I can't figure it out. For some reason, I posted 3 pictures but the same one showed up 3 times.

OMG How did I post the same picture 3 times?? I swear, I clicked different pictures each time!! I should have checked my post after I posted. Subee, thank you for posting those. I'm new at posting pictures from this Ipad. I don't know what I could have done wrong though. Thank you for a great package! Your's is going out today. I never thought of a post office being closed on a Saturday, but I guess some are. I'm in a small town, maybe that has something to do with it.

OMG! It arrived already Cheesy I love priority flatrate. Its so fast!!

Here is a close up of the front of the mugrug with the stitching. It was my first attempt at scribbly freehand (thats not a technical term LOL) with my sewing machine.

And here is the back. She said she like swedish style and animals and orange...so I looked long and hard for this fabric. Smiley

here is a close up of the hoop art. I made the steam rising up from the coffee and used a bold flower for the decoration because she likes vintage mugs.

And this is the mug I crocheted. Its a crochet hook organizer. I love mine so I tried to replicate it in "coffee mug" form. Smiley I hope your little one enjoys!!

It was a really fun package to craft.
