I'm so glad you like it
I had to learn a few new techniques making it so it was lots of fun. though having received the parcel from you I don't feel like it is enough! Would you like dibs on my first born son as well?
ok... so, seriously - there is not enough gushing in the world to express how awesome my parcel is. It's incredibly generous, but more that that it is really thoughtful too - all my favourite things were included (pirates, dinosaurs, robots, books, tea... and all in my favourite colours) everything is just my sort of style so a lot of effort must have gone into planning it all;
obligatory group shot, taken quickly before the biscuits were eaten (this is the hazard of getting post sent to work... colleagues claim snack-sharing rights). Set phasers to intensely jealous
butter scotch biccies, roobis earl grey tea (i am drinking some now, it's yummy) and a babushka doll bookmark in addition to 4 incredibly well made crafted items
Now, see the copy of Un Lun Dun? that's no ordinary book. That's a craft supply store, with felted pages and holders for all my stuff: scissors, crochet hooks/knitting pins, needles & pins, thread, floss
This is based on an item on my wist, but pimped up beyond compare. It's also even better than best because Un Lun Dun is one of my favourite books (my cat is named after a character), and I love the illustrations featured on the cover.
but wait - there's more...
A cuff made from the same felt as the book pages:
A Robot Pirate bag:
This is perfect - my boyfriend has never remembered to take canvas bags when we go shopping before but last night he reminded me - and claimed dibs on carrying this one home. I will have to keep a close eye on it!
A dinosaur tea-caddy:
back & top, to show off the beautiful finishing:
words fail me. I love stupid jokes. I love dinosaurs. I love tea. I love my swap partner!
