OMG! I thought I had another week AFTER Feb 24th to send out my markers! Well, I have them packaged up but I wanted to get some cards to include with them. So, Kena, Jennifer, Angie, Lisa and Lynda, your packages will be in the mail this Saturday when I can get to the post office. Sorry, I just assumed I had another week after the deadline, so was taking my time. I also was hoping to be able to solder the rings to make them more sturdy. I never found the soldering iron, so I guess maybe next time?

On another note, here are all the beautiful stitch markers I have received. My pictures certainly do not do them justice, but hopefully you can get an idea of what beautiful things have come my way.
From Kena:
thank you, I like how you made your rings!

and from Catherine I received these sparkly stitchmarkers along with a little notebook and pen set and some candies. My 4 year old daughter nabbed the package before I could take a picture, and she ate all the candies. Her preschool had lion dancers come visit and it really impressed her when they threw candies out into the audience. I didn't know about these New Year candies before...
Also, I like how you made your rings. I can't figure out how you tied off the rings.
From Lynda came these lovely markers, clear millefiore type glass with blue flowers and yellow centers along with a chocolate bar and a cute card of a dragon pulling a train:

And from Lisa, I received these beautiful pink and green markers with some candies and tea. The token in the middle says "be yourself"

Thank you so much to everybody!

Hey Brenda,

Glad you liked the markers. I had a great time making them.

I noticed that you only have four markers in the picture. Did the fifth one not make it? I have an extra (I like to make a spare, just in case) if one of your broke in transit. I feel really bad that you're short one marker. Let me know if you need the last one and I'll send it out to you.

Take care.
