I've received all of the ornaments from my wonderful partners now!  I will post photos tomorrow...  Thank you everyone Smiley

Changed my mind...  Here are some cell phone photos of the ornaments on our "tree" in the office (sadly, still at work... taking a quick break)

Aren't they all so adorable?  Must get a tree now...

Yowza!  I've been having the WORST time trying to get a message posted on here...  We're in the middle of moving houses & so my only "internet" is on my cell phone, which apparently does not want me making any posts or sending emails on Craftster.  Sorry for the delay!

I received two (3) beautiful ornaments from Acadian Driftwood and Amazon Warrior last week~ Love them!  They're perfectly made and are going to look awesome on our first tree in the new home Smiley

Thank you Ladies!!

I finally decided what I'm going to offer this year!  I'm going to contribute to the felty goodness, too Smiley

I will make 4 Dala horses and 4 matryoshka dolls.  I made these two cuties on the weekend (of course, they were "inspired by" ornaments I found on Pinterest):

There will be different colour combos, and the matryoshka dolls will likely have different flowers/designs, but they will be in this style.  I hope you think they're as cute as I do!  Definitely making extras for family gifts this year.

Woo hoo Smiley  I'm so happy to see that you like your package Anna~ It was fun making everything for you.  The mittens are made of wool...  I'm pretty sure I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease, but am not 100% (I de-stashed, go me!).  I just grabbed woolen yarn in the colours that you commented on, so I am glad that their super-softness is an added bonus for you!  The pattern is definitely a Lion Brand (free) pattern for flip-top gloves.  I added the stripes  Wink

And now to show off the goodies that I received... My phone takes terrible photos, so I do apologize for not-great quality of these ones.  I didn't want to wait any longer to show them off though. Talk about serious talent!

The whole package:  A gorgeous (amazing, wonderful) pillow with adorable little felt birdies embroidered on, and 2 beautiful sets of handmade stitch markers:

(You can see the great postcard that Anna included for me...  she also sent me a 2nd blank one...  No way she could have known, but I'm a Post Crossing addict too, so this is a wicked bonus for me Smiley )

Here are some close ups of the stitch markers!!

(Anna - are these pearls??)

And the pillow (wow!) ~ I can only imagine how much time and effort went into creating all of these perfectly stitched birds and lines.  Thank you!

Close up of a couple of the cuties:

Thanks again to both my partner & to our wonderful organizer!  Great swap Smiley

6  Marvin the Martian in CHALLENGE 102 ENTRIES by Koreena on: September 08, 2014 11:04:08 AM

My super sweet partner, flygirl88, from the very old "Simple/Easy Swap"... she suggested that I enter Marvin.  So here I am Smiley

This was one of the very first (if not the first) knitted toy that I made... I did google a pattern, and was lucky enough to find one... There don't seem to be any non-copy-righted Marvin doll opportunities these days!

Anyhow, he was SUPER fun to make, and I am so thankful that he went to a very good home... Check out the photos that flygirl sent to me a few weeks ago:

Hope you like him Smiley

So!! I COMPLETELY forgot to post photos of the great poppet that SiakelA sent to me!! I am so very sorry, partner~ I hope that you will forgive me!

I asked my honey to take some photos of her for me.... This is what happened haha

She has a lot of fun, as you can clearly see Smiley  Thank you again, SiakelA, for my very first poppet!

Happy 4th of July to everyone in the USA!!

I am so sorry for taking this long to post photos of the great package that I received from our lovely organizer~  I have been tooooo busy lately, and haven't been on a computer.

Without further delay!  Here it is:

Full kit:  Covered notebook, change purse & 'extra' microfiber yarn

The change purse is perfectly made with absolutely great fabric

The book is currently covering a lined journal, and I love that it's easy to remove.  Will definitely be used over and over and over and over again Smiley

Did I mention that the fabric is perfect?

Last shot:  The ball of yarn that will soon be something fabulous ~ love the colour!

Thank you AGAIN goldfishpollywog for organizing a great swap, and for sending such a lovely package to me Smiley  See you next round!

Agreed!  Everything is looking so great so far Smiley  I really need to make a decision...  Would people prefer something knitted or crocheted, or a set of greeting cards? 

This card IS NOT my creation (image from Pinterest), but is made using the 'Branch Out' set from Stampin' Up, which I think I would use if I made cards for this swap... Is my favourite one Smiley  I would make a bunch of different cards using the same stamp set.

Let me know what you think!
