A very BIG thank you to Debbie! I absolutely love my box of goodies! First and foremost, this beautiful fairy doll named Indigo (after my favorite color!) The level of detail on her face and hands is exquisite. And her wings are so delicate and pretty!!! My daughter caught sight of her- so I had to put her up on a very high shelf in my locked craft room- as to not have her destroyed by a chewing toddler!
I also received a box of canning jars- always needed here, and always appreciated. The jars are the squat little ones that will hold something special this summer. I am thinking a honeysuckle jelly would look pretty in them.
Also, I asked for- and received- information on learning to knit. Two instruction books, a step by step picture demo for making a scarf, a reference card for stitches, a gorgeous skein of yarn, and a set of needles. Now I have no excuse not to learn!
I also got the cutest little rubber duckie- well, to be honest the kid took that immediately! And a little set of candles. All in all, a fantastic box! I had so much fun with this swap, and cannot wait for the next one. Thank you again Debbie, you went above and beyond. I love every single item.

Thank you to Sarah K for sending me the perfect package. It was filled with the things I can't live without. I feel spoiled! Thank you for creating and sending such a wonderful package!
Sarah K included a book of fairy tales, Sharpies, a candle, gloves, some fun crafty baubles and a zombie cell phone made from felt. :)
And she sent me this amazing apron. Look it has red & white polka dots! I LOVE my Needful Things package! Thank you Sarah K! (I posted a few more pictures on my blog.)

i wanted to post at least a little something. It has been an interesting 3+ weeks battling sinusitis, bronchitis, and pneumonia, but i am trudging along. while i have not been photographing my progress, i can at least offer one little sneak peak from a past photo. i made this dress a few years ago from a beautiful circa 1960's Wamsutta cotton print from my grandmother's collection. after making that full circle skirt there was one precious yard left over. tomorrow that yard will start it's journey to a new stash. i hope the new owner will love it as much as i have.

Chris sent me a wonderful box full of goodies!
So many fun and creative things.
This caught my eye right away. It's a glass bottle that is shaped to look like a lightbulb (sorry about the sideways view). I think it is supposed to be an oil or vinegar bottle because there is a small hole in the top of it. Doesn't really matter because it will be in my craft room filled with something colorful.
A free spirited, fun, flying fairy that I have named Myrtle. She will be my creative Muse and hang out with me in my sewing space.
A fun and funky zip pouch. Maybe if I put some money in it the money will start to multiply like magic?
I absolutely LOVE these socks!! The monsters are so bright against the black and white. My inner funky side will be glowing when I wear these.
I will be putting up a blog post tomorrow (hopefully) with more pics of the individual items.

We are twins separated at birth - I'm convinced of it :-) ...... We like so many of the same things, and my swap package just proves it !!!!
Meet Maggie Mayflower - the most adorable Zombie ever !!! She was spared a terrible fate !!! She is another treasured Zombie to my ever growing collection. I adore her :-)
For my garden ... Oh Spring is soooo close !!! Time is almost here to start preparing the ground. Digging and tidying my beds, so that I can plant this years crop. I can barely wait. This lovely journal will be My Garden Journal !!! It will hold important facts .... empty seed packets ... pictures and recipes. It will hold The Story Of My Garden on its pages.
Trim .... Oh how I love trim !!! I see Zombie Doll Clothes ..... Handmade Pillows .... Embellished Tote Bags ....
Fairy House Goodies ..... This is uncharted territory for me, but I can barely wait to get started !!!
THANK YOU VAL !!!!
I was spoilt rotten with everything she sent me. So go and grab yourself a cup of tea ...maybe a cookie too .... and prepare to feast your eyes (and drool just a little), as I share my treasures with you !!!!
A good book. What a coincidence ..... I went to see a movie today, and one of the movie trailers shown was for the movie based on this book (has a movie trailer ever made you sob like a baby ..... this one did !!!) I wrote the books title down, so I could put it on my "Must Buy" list ...... Can't wait to start reading it !!!
Val .... Thank You just doesn't seem enough !!! I love my package ..... you brought a ton of sunshine to my day :-)
