I received from honeyd!!
Okay... First off we have a lap quilt. That fabric is amazing!! The colors look really nice in my living room, so I'm going to find the perfect spot in there for it to live when not in use.
Next- we have a set of book plates, colorful bookmark (excuse the cat trying to eat it), and a lovely quote book. honey put her favorite quotes in the book, but there is plenty of room for me to add tons more. This will work out much better then the pad of post-it notes I'm currently using to store favorite quotes.
- These sound like a fun YA series and since honeyd LOVES the author, I'm sure they'll be a good read.
** Crown Duel
- Sounds like a fun medieval romantic story.
- I'll admit my curiosity is peeked on this one... since honeyd actually used the work "perfect" to describe it...
Seriously though- what's with these author's names? Eoin Colfer, Sherwood Smith, Obert Skye...?!?!?!
Okay- I saved the best for last. I have two favorite book series. 'Harry Potter' and Mercedes Lackey's 'Valdemar' books. In the 'Valdemar' books there are characters called Companions... who are (simply put) spirit guides in the bodies of horses. If you like fantasy novels I HIGHLY recommend you read them (start with the 'Magic' or 'Heralds' trilogies). Anyway... honey made me, not one, but two Companions.
The first is TINY. I took a picture of it on my hand so you would have some idea of the size. She wasn't totally happy with how it turned out, but I think it's so delicate and lovely.
The second is my favorite thing from this package- it's my very own amigurumi Companion. I seriously love this thing!!
And to show how perfect she replicated them, here are my Companions in their new home on my bookshelf... I turned one of the books so that you could see the cover illustration. (honeyd- I can't wait to hear what you think of the 'Valdemar' book I sent you!!)
I just want to say THANK YOU to both of my partners!! You both sent books I'm really excited to read and crafts that I'm over the moon about. I hope you two love your packages as much as I love mine. This swap seriously rocked!!
And THANK YOU psyche, for organizing. You're wonderful and I hope there will be a round 2 sometime in the near future.
