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
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
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!

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