etsy Friday

As last Friday, was all about Christmas Shopping on etsy... this week is all about presents for me...

First, from Blue Kitty Designs, is not so much a present but a necessity.  I have a dpn holder, but it won't hold needles longer than 6" -- doesn't do me much good.  And since I've been on a huge hat kick, I need the dpns.  A search on etsy turned up this delight -- which came to me wrapped in lovely tissue paper:


It has a bunch of slots for two lengths of needles, and a nice flap that folds-over to keep the needles from sliding out.


Bruce was very happy because he got the box it came in -- Lizzie was upset because she didn't get a box.


But then Bruce decided to share


Lizzie didn't get her own box, because my Piddleloop stuff came in an envelope.  A very well-taped envelope.   (I don't know if you can see just how much tape is covering the flap in this picture.)


Knowing that it was going to be the last update of the year, and the fact that I totally missed out on their last update, I might have gone a little overboard...

First up, my mod kitty project back with matching notions pouch.  (I wish the camera was more true to color, the navy ribbon is just so awesome.)


I also got a neat little pouch for holding needles.  Sometimes I've got several projects that I want to be working on, or I need to switch needle sizes -- this little pouch is perfect for holding extra needles


I also got one of their new, Piddly bags -- and its got sheeps in trees!!!!  With a very lovely stitch marker from Walnut Ridge Studio.


I really wanted to get a close up picture of the marker, but my camera and I have been having some issues lately.  I tried to get the gorgeous lining of the sheep bag -- see how that turned out?


But in addition to the awesome bags for my knitting projects, she also sent some goodies... 


Seriously, so much stuff that it almost fills my Piddly Bag


What's in the tin you say??? 


Is it wrong that I was as excited about the little tin as I was about the bags????

In other etsy news -- I am now official addicted to POUNCE.  This rocks!

She has been mad..your goodie bags need to be more spaced out! how does one do that?? i said just tape it up good it has to go to naperville! it can make it! hahahahaha
