YAY! It got there so fast! Glad you like it Laura, it really was a ton of hooking but I wanted to use all the colours to make all the cacti, each shape was more irresistible than the last! The white-edged leaves were the thing I felt least confident about so I'm extra happy to hear you like them especially. I hope you'll share a photo of the diagram explaining what they are all called. I drew that late the night before shipping and forgot to take one, d'oh. Isn't that always the way?

I think you could find a way to hang the container but it also might be narrow enough to sit on a windowsill, I was thinking it might do when I chose it for you since you mentioned not having loads of shelf space.

And ya, I laughed when I saw the erasers you sent Cheesy. I thought, well at least I know she'll like the ones I sent her too Cheesy.

What an awesome swap this is so far, I am super looking forward to the rest of the gallery!

Succelents need full sun and only need to be watered once a week.  I have several growing.  DS's former boyfriend was really into these type of plants so I received a few.

CLM, I ADORE that crocheted succulent garden!  I need to try making one.  It's the only amigurumi I like.   Roll Eyes

Oh my goodness! Loving the gallery so far! I received from dharma_rebel! She totally spoiled me.

Stickers, a face mask, cute lunch tote, a pin and awesome cactus candy!


The prettiest garland! I just love the colors, the roses and of course the cacti!


And I just realized I didn't take a pic of the super cute cactus totebag she made. SOOOOOO....I need to go do that now! ]]\]

Thank you SO much! Everything is just perfect.

I just had my popsicle break interrupted by the mail lady with a fantastic package from kittykill.

First up, she stitched and colored a throw pillow with monstera leaves!



Also, an adorable tea towel with the happiest cactuses!



Closeup thumbnails because they are too cute not to.




And fantastic extras - violet seeds, a little pot for a baby plant, pretty coaster, suction cup air plant, and the most perfect book ever about growing plants from window scraps.



Thank you so much!!
