I received from Deece in MN earlier this week but haven't been able to post photos until now. We sent the same size box, but I swear the one I received must have been a miniature Tardis because I just kept pulling out more and more treats. Don't know how she found the room to pack so much stuff inside! View of everything together.
Treat bags full of candy, apple cider mix, and gourmet hot chocolate mixes
Large bags of candy corn and white chocolate candy corn plus a mixture of the same candies found in the treat bags. Oops, did I forget to mention that I'm diabetic?
I was reasonably good though and shared the candy with my dds, so a lot of the candy ended up in their homes. Kept enough to satisfy my craving for sweets without sending me into diabetic shock!
Halloween punches and other papercrafting supplies. I already have plans for these punches. In fact they would have been perfect for a card I wanted to make for Deece in MN but couldn't.
Spool monsters from my Pinterest account and the most adorable owl pincushion (How did you know that I was running low on machine needles?? Perfect timing!)
A skein of sock weight yarn and more than 2 yards of wonderful fabric
I saved the very best for last . . . the tote Deece in MN made to send everything in! It's reversible, so here's the interior. The ravens are a clue of what is to come.
Deece and I both love Edgar Allan Poe, but finding fabric that portrayed "The Raven" and then being willing to part with enough of it to make me a bag is amazing. I knew Deece was a good quilter, but her general sewing is some of the most professional I've ever seen. This is side 1.
And here is side 2. I can't decide which should be front and which should be considered the back because they're both so wonderful! I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings because I've received some beautiful and truly amazing things since I started swapping on Craftster, but I have to admit that this tote is my absolute favorite. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
