Here are the pics I promised - sorry for my tardiness!

I received a lovely jewellery box - with some Hunger Games related jewellery inside it!


I loved it all - it was my partners first swap, and she was sooooo awesome - I hope I haven't put her off and she does many more because people will be lucky to be partnerered with her!

OK - onto pics, firstly the lovely box!






I love that quote so much - as much as Effie annoys me lol!

then there were some silver parachute earrings



a mockingjay pin ( I sooooooooooooo wanted one of these!)



a mockingjay key ring




and lastly as a really really thoughtful extra she sent some rat earrings as she knows how much I adore my rats and collect anything ratty related:

 Embarrassed Embarrassed


and everything together in the opened box



ignore the cat litter tray in the background - it's on our table atm as the puppy keeps eating the poo if it's on the floor! ARGH! (i should add we rarely eat at the table - and if we do we take off the current tablecloth which is a 'pet' one and put on a posher, clean one!)


Thank you so much csnicole - you've been wonderful! XXX

I hereby declare myself the worst swap partner in this swap! I have been soooooooooo bad at getting pictures up - and my partner has been soooo patient! First I was ill with chest infection, then i was ill with personal issues then I was running late on a different swap and had to spend all my time on that - this explanation isn't to gain sympathy but to say that my tardiness IN NO WAY reflects what I feel about the parcel - as i trully love it all! I have photos now - but am ashamed to say i'm struggling to remember what is from what catergory - if I get them wrong then please forgive me winter83!!!! It all came in a big box, and was really nicely wrapped with little notes on each parcel - but I was so impatient to see what I had I ripped it all open and then thought oooops i should have taken photo's - oops!

Anyhow - without further ado, photo time!

Something local: a MYB! Woooooo I've always wanted one of these - so that made my day immediately! Unravelling it was sooo much fun, and it was lovely yarn too!



unravelled showing everything that came in it



there's no Lindts left now - they were yummmmmmmmmmmm!

Something round - felted stacking bowls! This was winter83's first time at felting and she did such an awesome job!






love the colour combo too!

Something green - an awesome needle roll!




something relating to the letter 'T' -not 1, not 2 but 3 different sized tote bags! these will be soooo useful!





Something funny (i had two packages marked as something green - but as this is blue am assuming it's the something funny!)





it's a hammock for my pet rat!!! Of course - it doesnt seem funny to me Tongue but I can totally see why it would to other people!

Something hard



I told winter83 i'd always wanted to try knitting a sweater - but have never had the patience - and that my two pet dogs are my world, so she sent me a book full of patterns for doggy sweaters - thinking that if i started with a 'small' sweater i might be less scared!!!! i have to say this made me laugh loads - but i love it, I love and collect unusual knitting pattern books!

senders choice - a hand died wool organiser! i can put it on the back of my door and put the wool in the pockets - soooooooooooooo needed!



and folded up to show you what an awesome dying job she did




so much of this parcel was purple - I LOVE her for that - as I am absolutely purple mad!!!!

Then as if that wasn't enough - there were lots of extra's too!

sweet stuff



aren't those chicks cute - they''re marshmallow!



i don''t know if they're common in America but I've never seen them before and they made me go awwwwww!

Two moleskin notebooks



Winter83 didnt know but my partner and I are getting married next year - and I plan to use one of these as my wedding planner - I've only ever seen the plain coloured (brown) moleskins in the UK so having purple ones is ace!

And an awesome litle heart tin with beautiful stitch markers




thank you so much winter83 for such a wonderful package and for being so patient with me - I sooooooooooo enjoyed swapping with you!

Thinking of joining this!

Would anyone be interested in a smallish (about 8inch's at longest) button tree hoopla?

Yay finally I can stalk the gallery! I received an awesome package on Monday - but have been so busy tryin to get my package finished I hvent had ime to do pics! I am going to rectify that very shortly though as I finally mailed out today!!!

Some fab stuff here! So glad my partner loved what I sent and thanks for all the lovely comments on the elephant - i was so pleased with him! I actually made two as my first one didnt come out perfectly - but was quite pleased to have made two as the first one was what I was knitting when i found out about my Nan dying - and as sentimental as i am I would have found it soooooo hard to send off!

I received an awesome package yesterday - and so need to put up pics, but i've been really poorly for the last couple of days (just avoided hospital with asthma attack/chest infection) and not been up to it - feeling bit better now so fingers crossed tomorrow they'll go up!
