I received from Grab a coffee!



This package included several little balls if colourful yarn. I'm going to teach myself amigurumi(spelling?) so these will be perfect for that learning escapade!



She also sent some very pretty fabric. I haven't decided how to use it yet, but I'm thinking a bath apron for a pregnant coworker.



And lastly some stitch markers!
These are so pretty, I'm actually tempted to use them as wine glass markers. :p

Thanks Eszster!! I know I will use all of these soon. Thank you so much for swapping with me!

I also forgot to post Anna's gift to me :p



She sent me this lovely jewellery set! I wore it to a family dinner and got loads of compliments on them. Smiley



Here is a close up. She said she based the colours off a photo of a place she loves. I can see why, it's a lovely lake!!

I really love these, Anna! I know I'm going to wear them often. Smiley thank you!!

I received from Dessadoll but have been dealing with family issues the last couple weeks... So sorry, dessadoll!!

Anyway, she has claimed me for some ornaments. Smiley

 
Sideways. Sigh at the phone. :p
They are absurdly adorable. Smiley I love their little cheeks!



Here is a close up of the Santa. I love how classic he looks. I'm a big fan of this style of Santa.



And one of a penguin! Soooo cute!!


Dessadoll also included an extra little goodie. It's a Santa fork!!
I think it's really neat and finicky how she curled the fork tines in his beard! I would not have the patience for that. Smiley kudos!

And it may not show well, but the white of his hat is textured and puffy!! I'm lovin' it!

Thank you again, dessadoll!! I can't wait for Christmas!!

I received from Bakeneko today. Smiley


Mug sleeves!


Mua ha ha! These are coming with me to work.



These are vinyl stickers. I've left the protective paper on them. I'll post a photo once I have them up.

I'm really excited about these. I'm the cochair for health and safety at my work, and I think it's amazing that I can incorporate safety into my crafting. Cheesy

Thank you Bakeneko!! I love the parcel you've made for me. Smiley

I received a package from Nathan yesterday. Smiley



All the pretties in their pretty wrappings!



It's Bombur!! And he has the most adorably squishy belly. I may have been poking his belly repeatedly...



Nathan used four different fabrics to make his clothing! I am just awed.



He even has pleated pockets. I just.. Wow.



A lovely painted box with the emblem for Rohan



Inside were a pair of elvish ear wires!




I used to have a single one like these, but have never had the skill to make them! I am overjoyed to wear these.



I saw this necklace on Pinterest and thought it looked like something that the wood elves would wear.



So obviously it was one of my first pins for this swap.



I really hope this photo turns out, the detailing that he put into the leaves is incredible.



This is like an Ent in a dream catcher. This must have taken ages!!!



If you look very closely, you can see that he has been given a face.



One of my favourite lines. Smiley I've hung this up in my bedroom.

Thank you, Nathan!! I have been thoroughly spoiled and love every single bit of this package. Smiley







Bombur met my tribe of domesticated house goblins. They aren't getting along yet. Wink

Survived being invaded by teens. Phew!

You guys want to see what we made, right? Of course you do!



Thanks again, Averia!!

I received from Averia last week while I was away. I'm late posting these photos, sorry!! Jet lag threw me for a loop. :p

Averia sent me a supplies package that I'm terribly excited about!



Seed beads and safety pins! I'm actually planning to use these tomorrow. I'm taking 15 teenagers to England next month. We are going to visit the Harry Potter set, and one girl mentioned that she hasn't seen all the movies. A few other girls nodded in agreement.
"Oh, well how many have you seen?"
"None... But I'm reading the third book!"
"Rereading?"
"No..."
"Well then, I guess we are having a Harry Potter Marathon!"
So I have a bunch of teens piling into my living room to watch the first three movies tomorrow, and I'm going to do a craft with them to make sure they don't get bored. :p

But what I'm really excited about are these hem clips!!



I have wanted these forever!! And now I can start having straighter hems when I sew! Mua ha ha!

Thanks Averia!! I'm super happy about these supplies!!! Smiley

Ooo! That is a LOVELY purse!

Those magnetic closures are really nifty looking.

I received from alittlemusthave. She has sent me Peanuts ornaments!

I opened the envelope and thought "Gee, she made these thick. I wonder if it's to keep the fabric from curling."



It turns out that there are FIFTEEN! Peanuts ornaments. I was expecting a half dozen, so I was absolutely floored and overjoyed that she sent so many cute ornaments! I am awed at the skill it must take to make the faces easily identifiable, and to also give them facial expressions!

Now something you may not know is that my Christmas tree looks like a Charlie Brown tree. My tall, dark and bearded bought it before we started dating. I think it's actually a Halloween tree. We don't have a lot of ornaments yet, this will be our second holiday season living together. So the Charlie Brown tree is very bare. Wink

Anyway, these little guys will suit it just perfectly. Smiley

For now, they are going to live in the ornament box, but I am already looking forward to Christmas so I can hang these up.

Thank you, alittlemusthave!!

I was going to post this earlier this evening... But then my grandma stopped by for tea and I was able to use my prize!

Rscowtown made me these cute coasters!

I really like them, thank you rscowtown!

I'm late with my photos. My sincere apologies!

First is a thread catcher from Brianna. I haven't stuffed the top yet, but it sticks so nicely to my tablecloth that I might not lol

I'm looking forward to making good use of it and not having as many threads to clean up Smiley




I am really digging this blue lining. Soo pretty!



I also received a parcel from rscowtown!

I pinned these ages ago and have always wanted some because there are a lot of wasps in my area and they are very persistent.



My mum is a Brown Owl with Girl Guides and she has threatened to steal the owl bowl covers when I'm not looking.



And they fit perfectly!!!

Thank you Brianna and rscowtown! I'm feeling very loved! Smiley
