I got the best package from cheekymamaof2 yesterday! A box FULL of all kinds of fabrics and quilting squares!

^^^ This is part one of the lovely fabric I got - polka dots and umbrellas, so cute! ^^^

^^^ Part 2 - Lots of cute dinosaurs and elephants, very colorful stuff ^^^

^^^ The last of the fabric ^^^

Then she sent me TONS of quilting squares! Three bags worth!

^^^ This is just a view of the stacks from just one of the bags! ^^^

^^^ The stack from the second bag ^^^

^^^ I didn't take pictures of all the beautiful designs on the quilting squares but here are some of my favorites ^^^

^^ The final bag had all solid colors in it - practically every color you could ever think of!!

I felt bad when I was taking the pictures because all the squares were stacked up so neatly and I was ruining the tidy little piles!!
Thank you soooo much cheekymamaof2! I'll be sure to make some great stuff out of all this!

i recieved two birthday wishes from lexbean plus lots of extra surprise goodies.

i had wished for candles and a zipper pouch.

take a look at what she plied me with...

look at all those extra goodies - hand creams, mini bath bombs, a tiny 'free to be you and me' book!

isn't that amazing? as an added bonus, i think the zipper pouch is made from a recycled usps mailer or something. i love artful reusing projects and this really impressed me.

thank you so much, lexbean!

you really made my birthday in an otherwise drab canadian month.

I received my package from kluckingbear today and it is beautiful. She fullfilled my wishes for embroidery stuff and a pin cushion. They are amazing!

Everything together:

Little b-day goodies, and embroider organizer sort of like the ones for knitting needles,  two embroidery books, cards for embroidery floss, shiny floss, a hoop, a pin cushion, and 1 of 2 chocolates she sent me (I already ate one. . . .)

The pin cushion, which I am already using:

The inside of the organizer, which was filled with some cards of floss, needles, and a needle book.

Thank you againfor spoiling me so much! Your card is in the mail.  Cheesy

Sweetie pie press got her package, and told me that her camera is not cooperating, so I am posting the pictures.  She wanted a subversive stuffie, and suggested an eyeball, and I happily obliged!!!

I made the eyeball out of craft felt.  I used a fancy stitch on my sewing machine to give it bloodshot eyes, handsewed the iris and pupil on (complete with a light reflection!), and knit the optic nerve and attached it.  Somewhere under all that optic nerve is a Zanti Miss Knit Creation label.

I was originally going to put googly eyes on the iris, because I thought that light reflection on the pupil looked like a tooth (making the pupil look like a mouth), but I decided that it was cute enough as-is.

I will try to post other pics to my blog, as I have a huge blog entry on the agenda.
