I'll join the tease-fest!  Here are my items for Puppy_girl prior to packaging and shipping.  There is one item that is discernable, but the rest remain a mystery.   Cool

Now for the flipside of this pairing ...

I was so humbled when I received my package yesterday from TwistedRedhead.  Every item is so classy and elegant.  She was so generous and is a very skilled crafter.  I was blessed to have been paired with her, and I would be thrilled to be partnered with her again.

On to craftalicious goodness!

Decoupaged box (which has already found a home in my built-in bookcase):

Handmade cards (the red one is my absolute fav, and I'm glad she wrote on it, so I won't be able to give it to someone else   Wink  )

Origami ornaments, handmade book/journal (she actually made a book!), glass bead earrings (I think she even made the beads) and a beaded star ornament

Everything (excluding pliers) that I need to begin beading (which I had expressed an interest in learning) -- Beads, jump rings, clasps, wire, earring wires, etc. and a beading instruction book

Thank you so much TwistedReadhead!  You were the most amazing swap partner!

On another note ... I have a 50% off today-only coupon from Michaels, and I am going to use it to buy beading pliers.  Yippee!!!

Received my tin from charliebrown today.  She selected my sewing theme, and I now have a pin cushion, felt needle booklet, charms and magnets.  charlie, wherever did you get the graphics for those magnets?  I love them!  I love everything!  Thanks so much!  I hate to tell you it will likely be closer to the mailing deadline before I send to you.

I thought I was going to be first to post my goodies, but superhooker beat me to the punch!

OMG!!!!  Look out swappers, jloveg has set the bar very high.  I received a box chock full of wonderful goodies.  Here is a pic.  (There was so much stuff I cut off part of one item.)

In the box was:

  • Two dishtowels
  • Three dishcloths
  • 15 tasty-looking recipes in a wooden box w/hinged lid (including one for doggie treats -- how thoughtful)
  • Magnetic shopping list and two magnets
  • Towel grips
  • Magnetic clips
  • Set of four measuring spoons
  • Four handmade placemats with matching napkins
  • Three handmade potholders/hotpads
  • Two breadcloths
  • Two bread baskets with rice pillows (to heat and keep bread warm)
  • Placemat size hotpad (this is what got cut off in the bottom of the pic)
  • A jar of garlic powder
  • A jar of Italian seasoning
  • A bottle of Georgia Peach mix (peach syrup for sauces, drinks, etc.)
  • Butter Toffee sunflower seeds
  • A container of bite-sized candy

What a haul!  All the colors are perfect for the house we are currently having built.  I will save these lovelies to be used when we move this summer.

Thanks so much, jloveg!!!!!

Here is a picture of my completed dishcloth.  I finished it and frogged it two or three times before I was even remotely pleased with the result.

cfbandit, you're right, decreasing looks very stepstone.  I remedied it in two ways:  First, I used the transferred stitch as the wrap stitch each time, and I covered it up with a row of single crochet at the end.

Two things -- first, a pair of slipper socks I finished over the weekend:

and a dishcloth I finished this evening.  It's not beautiful, but I made it up myself.  I couldn't find a knifty knitter dishcloth pattern made on the diagonal.  The increases and decreases were a pitb.

Here is a pair of slipper socks I finished over the weekend.  They are for my mom, hence the incredibly small size.  I made them from some medium worsted weight that I had lying around.  The cuffs are ribbed.

Great job, ladies!  It's fun seeing each person's work.

I finished my first pair of slipper socks tonight, and here is one (I'm not coordinated enough to take pics of both feet from the side):

I made these from a strand of eyelash-type yarn and a strand of knitting worsted.

I started another pair with ribbing at the cuff and with two strands of knitting worsted.  One slipper is finished.
