I got my swap for the WLA ami swap!!!!

Wait till you see the amazing swap things that kidmissle made for me! I was in total awe when I opened the package. They are absoulutely amazing!!!! I wish you could see the details of the work, but my camera just doesn't do macro well enough.




The story behind the cuteness is this (according to kidmissle, who HK told the story to):
Hello Kitty found an orphaned baby octopus one day when she was exploring the sea. She took it home and raised it. To make it feel comfortable, HK sewed strips of fabric to her favorite dress, and made a hood so that she'd look like an octopus. Of course HK likes to look pretty, and wanted her pet octopus to have cute accessories too. So she gave her a cute flower bow and necklace.

kidmissle's wife made the lovely necklace, which can double as a bracelet for me! Thanks Mrs. Kidmissle!! What a sweetie you are!

Here are a couple of close ups of the lovely octopus.




The crochet on these is so beautiful! Even the bottom is lovely! (click on the pics to see bigger versions!)


And here is the fabulous Miss HK in her octopus outfit:


As soon as my daughter saw them, the first thing out of her mouth was: Oooooo, can I have those? I had to say that No, they were made especially for me. If she's very careful, she can play with them some, but they are Mommy's. Heck, she and my son get all the stuff I make, but these are MINE! (mine mine mine mine mine) :)

Now I just need to come up with a name for Hello Kitty's beautiful pet octopus.
