First package said open immediately so you can use it right away.  So exciting!

its a lovely TARDIS tree skirt!!!  be jealous!!!



and here it is under the tree!



Day 2:  

some where along the way since mink_bikini and i met in the penpal swap, i told her that my maternal grandfather was of Dutch descent.  his family was of the belief that once they immigrated the US, they were Americans and didn't continue using the language or traditions.  so i'm part Dutch but know little about it Smiley  

lovely Dutch linens which i will treasure





Day 3:

i collect vintage Jiffy stitching kits!



Day 4:

funny cuz i attempted to make one of these for her but i screwed it up and did something else instead!



Day 5:

hard to find and SUPER ADORABLE Ondori cross stitch book



Day 6:

awesome granny square tree



Day 7:

this beautiful cross stitch says "Happy Feast Day" in Dutch!



Day 8:

adorable vintage looking angel ornament!  i love this little lady too much!



Day 9: 

super cute plaid skirt, sorry no action shot, i assure you it fits perfectly!



Day 10:

wonderful circle skirt!  i actually had one in this exact fabric pinned!  i adore it!



Day 11:

these little buggers were hard to photograph!  vintage Hummel stitchery kits!



Day 12:

He's very tidy! I think this is perfect because his appendages can't be ripped off by the little ones so easily. What a cutie. Good work!

thank you!  i loved the way the legs were assembled for that same reason!

Just got "done" with a teenager. Done, as in, she has left home now and is living at college. She just turned 19. She's finally turning that corner where she seems like a normal human being. But the past few years were kind of awful. I don't know why anyone has more than one. And my poor parents had three of us in high school at one point. Ugh.

Now she's awesome. Ugh. Teenagers.

my mom said i started to come back around at 17, just crossing my fingers i don't have to wait that long!!!

definitely taking the advice to keep crafting!  aside from all of my other wips around the house,  i'm learning how to knit now so i can really bury myself in stress relief!

these last two packages are fantastic!

i want to apologize for  not being as available and attentive as i should have been these last few weeks  Embarrassed
anyone else going through raising a teenage daughter?  cuz its really the least fun thing i've ever had to do in my life!!!

as far as my records go, i should have everyone's feedback adjusted.  (if yours is still not updated please let me know!).

thank you all so much for joining the swap!  i hope every one of you has a wonderful winter!  Cheesy
