Look at that adorable stocking! I love the variegated yarn. Smokeyp81, what yarn did you use for Kidge's stocking? And that Paton's Lace--it's one of my favorites--I've made a stole and shawl out of it. In fact, I have some purple waiting for the perfect project. The owl is adorable.

 

Or should I say 'adorbs?' I just learned that last night on those funny Sprint commercials.

 

Great package!  patty

Here are the pics of my package from #1Crochetfan. I love everything and absolutely adore the bear :manyheart , and the little mouse, so cute!! (Purcy like it too). Teresa does beautiful work, I can't believe she made all these things, and scored some great freebies. The cookies are yummy too (we did a little cookie swap).  Thank you so much Teresa, I have enjoyed having you as a partner!!! :hug

The yarn is Hobby Lobby's I Love this Yarn overdyed in Caitlyn.  I's so glad you liked the knitted stocking....it is just a plain pattern, but the yarn really makes it!

Beckyb-    YAY!!! :yay Teresa package has been delivered, now the wait to see if she likes it.  :hyper

 

I really thought for sure it would come on Saturday, no matter that it was snowing but I finally got it. :yay

:ty Thank you, Becky, for such a wonderful package!  I absolutely love all my goodies! You are an amazing crocheter and an amazing baker.  The cookies are delicious, btw.

 

-She crocheted me a beautiful stocking in my favorite color, blue, that also matches an adorable gnome ornament.  She used white yarn with glitter for the trim of the stocking which is so pretty!  She attached a candy cane to the stocking which I have already started to eat.

-She crocheted me the most adorable santa, chickadee and penguin ornaments.   They are all hanging on my tree, including the cute gnome.

-She crocheted me an adorable snowman bag along with a snowman kitchen towel.  I love the kitchen dishcloths she made me in a christmas colored variegated yarn.

-She had an extra Interweave Crochet magazine so she sent it on to me which has some great patterns in it...

-She included peach yarn, crocheted labels, candy canes, stationery and a tin of coconut macaroons and a tin of butter cookies.  She also included the recipes for the yummy cookies and more recipes in a wonderful Christmas card.

 

  :c9   Of course, I love everything, Beckyb :hug .  Thank you so much! :day

 

Hey Beckyb, would you like to swap cats? :D    Rex wants to visit Purcy, I think. :lol

I'm so glad you liked everything!!! Once I started crocheting I just couldn't stop, lol.  (and that magazine was definately one of my "duh" moments back in september had bought it at Joann's and then bought the same one at Walmart, on the same  day  :blush Glad someone could use it ). Only thing I bought was the candy (and pattern).   

I think Rex needs a fur coat though if he wants to come visit,lol ( he is cute)!!

I promise, I participated! I was soooooo ridiculously busy with everything that I completely forgot to keep checked in here on the thread. But Skoggy's package went out the other day and I am anxiously awaiting her to receive it    :mailbox ....  :gift. There are lots of goodies in there, so many that I was afraid the box wouldn't shut! I went a little different route this time than usual, I made more than I bought which rarely happens! LOL I spent a total of $9.54, just under the budget! :woo Sadly, mailing is a teensy bit on the  :yell  :(  :cry  :yuck  :rant expensive side so I am super glad I planned ahead for that part. 

 

I love the stockings thus far! You ladies are so talented!

Well done, Tiffany!  Our thrifty sides can't wait now to see what you sent to Skoggy.

 

No snow for us, of course, but a chance for winter rain on Saturday, which would be very welcome. We ridiculously set a new record high on Tuesday of 83 degrees, which is about 15 degrees or so higher than our average for mid-December. Yesterday was 79, one degree off the record. But the Pacific storm coming in is going to drop our temps 20 degrees, so it will finally start to feel like the holidays around here.

OH my, thank you for the reminder Emma! 

 

Yes yes, I did receive my lovely package from you just a couple weeks back :)

All wrapped up! Simply gorgeous paper btw, I almost couldn't stand to open it! 

 

post-18684-0-96052900-1390699631_thumb.jpg

 

Inside the Elf Mail bag:

A gorgeous wooden ornament that matched the paper (and also my crazy color scheme for the tree/deco! 

An LED snowflake tea light

A crocheted mug cozy

Snowflake earrings Ms. Emma made herself for me in a beautiful black velvet bag! :heart

A bead and button bracelet kit in a tiny container - so cute!

A tote bag with a pig on it! (I :heart pigs!)

Some beautiful holiday fabrics... oooh I can't wait to make goodies with them!

Holiday 3-D stickers for crafting

Jewelry charms

 

Plus (not pictured)

A bracelet for each of my guys with a charm (Ben, Jayden, Bentley & Hayden all received one each)

And all 3 boys received their own stationary set! They really like them (especially Hayden, my little artist!)

 

Thank you so kindly my dear for my wonderful package! I am actually rather glad it arrived after the holidays because on that particular day I needed a pick-me-up and it was perfect! Completely changed me out of my funky mood and motivated me to smile & appreciate all of the good things in life. :hug I loved being your partner & hope that this year brings you happiness & our continued friendship!

There was also a crocheted mini wreath for my tree and a mini red and white stocking.

 

Non-crochetwise, there was:

A teddy each for Felicia and Isabel

Flipz (oh I love them so much!)

Peppermints and a lovely tarten (you call it Plaid?) tin

2 handmade lip balm

2 gold reindeer decorations

Hot Chocolate sachets

2 pens that remind me a bit of a Jesters / Fools stick :D

I've probably missed somethings off but there was so many!

 

I love it all so much! The socks have come in useful as the cold weather has settled in. So many :hug for you Tiffany.
