I received from mixymo today, and if you think she was spoiled, well, you will be amazed by the package I received!
I honestly would have felt spoiled if all she had sent was one of the little acorn stitch markers, I can't believe how perfect they are, all those little tiny stitches! Oops- See why I should read the letter before I get carried away with the pictures! It turns out the stitchmarkers are actually cupcakes, that got a bit squished on their trip across the sea,and looked a bit more acorn shaped than cupcakes! Of course the colours make more sense with cupcakes than acorns, and after squishing them back to their intended shape they look nothing like acorns. Sorry Mixymo! Does it help that I think they're amazing as either cupcakes or acorns?
Pictures! (I hope there's not too many- it was hard to resist putting up separate pictures for each thing they are all so great)
Here's everything all together:
A close up of the zipper pouch showing the cute lining, I love the way the lining shows through to the outside, so pretty.
Crochet cupcake stitch markers- these are just gorgeous, but I think they may become jewellery as well as stitch markers, they are too cute to be just practical.
Jewellery! The flower on the fabric bracelet is actually a separate brooch but I think they look good together. I love the button brooch and the necklace will look lovely with the buttons.
And a crochet hedgehog pincushion (It seems almost cruel to stick pins in the cute little thing)
Plus the all important chocolate. As you can see I've already made a start on the chocolate... You can't get the violet crumble things here, and they are amazing. They are like crunchies but even nicer. I was a bit disappointed they weren't actually violet flavour though, that really would be the best chocolate ever
I just love everything, it's really amazing how someone I've never met could put together so many things that are just perfect. Mixymo- you have definitely spoiled me for future swaps, I don't think anyone could come up with a better swap package. If you ever need a partner for one of those bring your own partner swaps, just let me know.
Thankyou so much Mixymo, you really have made my first swap the best swap ever.
