Quality Handmade Gifts are the BEST!

Last night I exchanged gifts with my craftiest of crafty friends Nikki. I was blown away by the gift she gave me, and my pictures don't do it justice!

The full gift included: a large tote bag (with many pockets!), a smaller bag for stitch markers and other gadgets, a knitting needle case, two balls of green wool, and a big bag of buttons. I already have a project in mind for the yarn, it involves felting and a brand new pattern that exists only in my mind. I'm so excited about my growing button collection. While I want to keep my supply of craft materials to a minimum (until I have my own house with a craft room!), I've needed a lot of buttons lately and have wished that I had some on hand. Now I do!

I can't post a picture the needle case justice until I fill it with my needles, so that picture will come in a few days.

Needless to say, I think she put my gifts to shame! Look for her kicka$$ line of totes in a shop near you.

I'm almost done with my own pair of falling leaf socks, so until they are completed I leave you with this silhouette of the socks:
