I received my package about a week ago, I got an Awesome blanket that I found out was homemade hand dyed and hemp! Also a onesie, I'm a big onesie fan!, two pairs of booties, a cute stuffed elephant, and a bottle.
Great gifts and THANK YOU!!!!!
Although I think Cameron will end up taking the elephant, it is his favorite animal, it will be hard to keep his little paws off it!
Again Thanks!

I got mine last week. It's wonderful! It's all home-sewn things. I love seeing other mamas' sewing and these are just perfect. There is a little recycled wool wrap with snaps, a colorful cotton fitted, 2 prefolds that I believe are sewn of recycled materials, and a pair of fleece-lined breast pads. Everything is so cute and little. Thank you mama! I think I know who you are (you posted on this thread ), but I will try to wait to be sure.

Hey all,
Korwynne, so glad you liked!

We got to PO last night after difficult MW appt (all's fine, just stupid horrible midwifery student, and weird energy) to find my gift! what a timely treat!

I got a GORGEOUS little knitted hat and booties, in a beautiful dark periwinkle blue, just lovely, and the fabulous LLL book, The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding!! Yay!!

Thanks so much mystery showerer! I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out who you are!

Got my gift today!!! Thank you soooo much to JeanetteL! I got a wonderful, very relaxing CD that is just in time to go into the hospital bag I am packing, a microfleece blanket with a zebra driving a car, two pairs of little blue pants, a first year calender that is quite pretty, and also the book "The Day you were Born." Wow!!! I feel so spoiled - especially since the package was green and the wrapping paper was purple --- my two most favorite colors!

I think my kids were as excited as I was when the postman rang the bell this morning!

Thanks again Jeanette!!!

You are very welcome - it was fun putting it together, my dd had a ball with it, although was confused about why we were sending this package to someone we didn't really know - lol! (how old will she be when she has her first internet friend, I wonder)??

Too cool on the colours - just a total coincidence!

I received my gift the other day, still not sure who exactly it was from since I only know screen names. I recieved a very lovely Pro-rap AIO and some hemp wipes, I am anxious to use once the baby arrives. Thank you so much!

My gift should have been recieved, haven't seen any posts about it though.

Those are my favorite 2 colors, too. Love purple and green, love 'em.

My gift arrived about a week ago, and I would have posted sooner but I haven't had internet access for a little while. Thank you so much Shayinme! I received a wonderfull set of Burts Bees baby stuff (shampoo, diaper rash ointment, etc.) and a bean bag with lavender in it to heat up for warmth or put in the freezer for cold (if baby scrapes his knee or something.) They are really wonderfull gifts that I wouldn't have thought of as a first time mom. I was really happy to get them. Thank you!

ACK! I totally forgot to post that I got my gift....I hope the mama wasn't worried that it got lost in the mail (I don't know the MDC user name of my giver....keep meaning to look through sig lines because I hardly ever pay attention to people's "real" names).

My gift was lovely - Bella was totally excited by the little baby brushes and nail clippers - and tried to steal the diaper cover right away for her dolls!

Thanks to the mama who sent my stuff, and also to the person whose wonderful idea this was - a surprise in the mail makes my day!

Well, I sent my package out right at the deadline, and I live in Australia, so it might take a while before it gets to you (I sent to one of you who haven't gotten your package yet, but I'm not telling who!). I sent it air mail, but they told me it might take 3-4 weeks, so it should be there in the next 2 weeks or so, I guess.

I got it yesterday!!!!

Binah sent me the most BEAUTIFUL baby blanket and bib! I am posting a picture because they are just so gorgeous - seriously the pic doesnt do them justice - its an awsome pink floral print one one side and fleece (either cotton or hemp - I am not sure) on the other w/ print stars appliqued on. And same for the bib - just gorgeous!

Did you make them Binah?!?

Thank you so much - I LOVE them!
