Whiteboard markers to use on those lists.
2x 100g skeins of Canadian made 60% mohair/40% wool

My partner likes to knit socks so I wanted to be sure there was enough yardage.
She listed burgundy as one of her favourite colours.
I bought this for her at the fleece festival in Woodstock.
A glass jar repurposed to be a storage container and pincushion.
I added quilt batting on top of the lid and then
sewed 2 layers of fabric over it.
The contents of the bottle. Things for her various hobbies.
Buttons, cross stitch thread, stitch markers and safety pins.
Various other items.
A Go Green frog magnet
A Canadian notepad
Smarties (chocolate) that isn't available in the USA
A Reusable sandwich wrap
GOLD embroidery needles for her embroidery/cross stitch
A Reusable shopping bag
I made up this pattern.
A knit nutcracker.
She collects them.
I made up this pattern as well.
A DPN holder upcycled out of a placemat.
It has a front pocket with velcro tabs
to hold other supplies or socks in progress
I also sent a bar of dark chocolate that wasn't in the first pic.
There was also a painting I did that had a tree on it with the words Reduce Reuse Recycle around it in latin.
Unfortunately I didn't get a close up picture of it and my partner didn't post any pics.
However you can see it in the background of the first picture.
