I'm smitten with the felted crocheting frog who has beads attached to her yarn spelling "rip-it"...how clever ist that? She's going to be my constant crochet partner reminding me with her big, toothy smile that when at first you don't succeed, just rip-it and try again!
I can't get over the detail and workmanship Sherry put into making those two, decorated match box ornaments. They're simply adorable and they each have a little surprise hidden inside. Here's the frog prince with his loot::
and here is the little frog witch matchbox ornament:
(I love the little sticker that says "Ghoul's Best Friend)
I also got three little draw string pouches made from very cute frog pattern material and a really pretty blue lining to match. Here's a photo of two of them.
I love the pattern and you can tell that they're very well made.
And if that wasn't enough, I also got these adorable gift tags with froggy sayings on them:
It's difficult to read what it says on the photo here, so I'm going to tell you the clever little inscriptions:
Toad-ally happy for you, You make my heart leap, Sorry I frog-got and You're un-frog-gettable! Aren't those clever?
Here's a photo of the items I sent to my froggy swap partner, Sherry, who also has a shop on Etsy called "A Pinch of This - a Dash of That" (in case anyone is interested in her work.)
I'm glad Sherry liked the gifts I sent her. She said that she wore my crocheted frog hat all day on Saturday when she got the package.
I think I'm off to do some crocheting now with my new froggy crochet partner - I just love her!
p.s. the cats are loaded and off to Florida to the Vet for their spay/neuter ordeal. I took photos and will post about it tomorrow after I take more pictures at 6:30 pm when we have to go and pick them up.
This is for you, my dear, faithful, patient and forgiving blogging friends:
Have a wonderful day!
