I got my amazing parcel from Averia!!  Grin

All the loot together ...

She sent me a wonderful fabric-covered journal with a great writing quote embroidered on the front! Close up:-

Averia's embroidery is always so tiny and precise, I think she must use lasers Cheesy

She also sent me a tiny Spock on a pouch! Love!! And a gorgeous wee notebook with sashiko embroidery on the front of it - so pretty!

And as if that wasn't enough, she sent not one but two handcrafted necklaces. One is a tiny book, with real pages and a little marker  Cheesy and the other one is beautiful freestyle embroidery - I just adore this!

Plus she sent a BUNCH of extras, Koolaid for dying yarn (yay, I have had a go at this once, and it was brilliant, but I ran out of Koolaid - can't wait to try it again), wonderful black silk thread and silver thread (so spoilt!!  Grin), and very thoughtfully, extra clasps in case I want to change the length of the necklaces!

Thank you so much Ave - you are a fabulous swap partner and craftster buddy!! I only hope my parcel for you lives up to this spoilage!!

I got my beautiful parcel all the way from the UK!! It was was definitely worth waiting for  Grin

Group shot

P_E_S_T wrote me a little poem when she sent it  Cheesy

1 is a thing I've made you before

I was so sad about the first one going missing, but look at this lovely felted votive holder!! P_E_S_T incorporated embroidery and seaglass into it - gorgeous!!

2 is something I just know you'll adore
It's something I found in an antique store!

She found this wonderful vintage thread book, it has slots for holding skeins of embroidery thread - I love vintage embroidery!!

And 3 is a hug for a book in which you draw

... and she made me an amazing felted sketchbook cover!! It incorporates crochet and a button and stitching, and a pocket on the inside - fab!!

Thank you so much P_E_S_T!! I really appreciate all the the time and love that went into these things, and it was so good of you to resend after the first things went astray  Smiley

And just to make you all go ooh and aah, here's a shot of how the sunlight makes the glass in the votive holder glow - so pretty!

FabTM patches, and those bowl holders are brilliant!

I just got my lovely parcel from rockmygypsysoul Smiley

She sent me 10 beautiful hand-stamped cards in two designs, and a very generous assortment of jewellery bits and pieces, which will be fantastic fun for me to incorporate into crafty projects.

Thank you so much!!

(I'm sorry I haven't been around much to comment on everyone's parcels, but I have been admiring everything, and you are all so creative and amazing!)


looklooklooklookloo k ...

Everything is so beautiful and so me!!

She knitted me a fantastic shawl in the prettiest colours, really lightweight and so wearable, AND sent a lovely handcrafted shawl pin too ...

... and she also knitted me some beautiful mitts that fit perfectly! The photo doesn't really show just how gorgeous, soft and luminous these are ...

It is such a treat to have some lovely things knitted just for me - as a knitter myself I know how much love and work has gone into these beauties - wow!

She made a sweet needle book, and a wonderful dalek notebook, with that classic lime stylishness - I will feel happy every time I use it. Love! Smiley

And as if that wasn't enough, she sent a wonderful handmade stamp, and created some beautiful stationery with it too!

AND she totally spoiled me with some gorgeous madeline tosh yarn (wonderful colours and such a special treat for me!!) and topped it off by finding me some of the vanilla mints that I tried when I visited the US and have hankered after ever since. Grin

Thank you doesn't even begin to cover it Lime - you are amazing and I am a very lucky jemimah!!!

Thanks so much quilted, everything is very "me" and I will use and enjoy it all  Grin
