I'm still waiting for my partner Huh and will refrain from sending anything until I hear from her...

Here is what I received from my partner. It is all absolutely perfect. The sewing kit is adorable. I put it already to good use, hence why the needle book isn't in the picture (it is somewhere in the sewing room... I could not find it!).

Thank you so much!

first, a sewing kit, with vintage fabric as lining. I like it very much. Knitting needles (aluminium are my favourite, thanks!), vintage buttons, a knitting book (so handy, thanks again!)


a very nice sweater vest, hand knitted. Great job! It fits me perfectly and it is so pretty. The pattern is from the 1960s or the 70s and a copy was included. I carefully stored it in my pattern binder. Thank you!


the left-over yarn.The colour is perfect for a fair isle project I have in mind!  I will make good use of it.


Action-shot! My partner also sent me a very nice dark brown leather skirt, which I am wearing on this picture. It does not show very well due to the poor lighting, but it is a very fine skirt.


thank you so much!  Grin

my partner really spoiled me with adorable tiny little things! There are so many. I hope I haven't left any out.

We decided, to save on shipping costs (I am in Canada, she in Australia, hence why it takes so long for us to receive our packages...), to send a lot of tiny items, wrapped in a big ball of yarn. The yarn has the advantage of shielding the content of the package from bumps. We also decided to send a few things particular to our countries.

So, here is the loot:


vintage buttons and handmade soap from a local company



felted wool cat toy (my bigger cat loves it. The other one is afraid of it, due to its size Wink ), a ring with a button, a necklace with a spider encased in resin


books and vintage Australian postcards:


vintage buttons, a key chain of a local bird, a cup holder (this sure will be handy!):


some local foodstuff (including genuine vanilla! hmmm!):


the skein of yarn! It looks hand dyed and spun. Did you do it yourself? What is its composition?


thank you so much! Cheesy Hopefully, my package should reach you soon dear partner. It has been, what, 8 weeks already?  Roll Eyes

Eloise- If you would like, I can remake the skirt for you. The fabric would be different, since I made it from a thrifted men's shirt. I had a lot of fun making it and actually want to make it again.

If you would like! But really, do not feel pressed - the rest of your package was so great. I am so happy by it. Everything else is absolutely perfect.

But if you really want to do it again, then I'll of course agree to it. However, I'll send you something more too. I had plenty of other ideas in store for you. I know you like lolita fashion. I did not get to play on that - contact me, we'll work a deadline out Wink

I found what I will be making for the medium.

I got one of the small, or perhaps a little bonus...  Wink
