I received from Ecstatic today! I was amazed at all the stuff she managed to fit in such a little box!
Here's the 'group shot'
which contains: 4 double sided placemats, two sets of 4 cloth napkins (4 in green print, 4 in lavender print), a GIANT knitted shopping bag, 4 knitted scrubbies, 2 knitted mice for my cat, a placemat for my cat's bowls, a tea towel with an embriodered kitty, a kitchen timer and a pack of post-its, a apron from her home state, a mug, and the book "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert.
here is the placemat, which fits Gale's bowls perfectly. It is made from different cat printed fabrics and is so cute! I LOVE the knitted mice cat toys, which I'm sure Gale will love to play with once she stops sulking from my leaving her with the boyfriend for almost a week.
here are all the linens that my wonderful partner made me! I love the placemats! They will match perfectly in my kitchen. I am really glad she made me some napkins, because I've been meaning to make my own, but was too lazy. And the cat tea towel is also adorable! She was worried that the back wasn't up to par, but why would I look at the back when the front is so cute!
Scrubbies- These are soooo cool! I've been wanting some of these and am really excited to use them! I think these were my favorite part of the package.
My partner is from Louisiana, and she included a souvenir of her state. (Which is really cool- none of my other swaps have ever done this!) Its an apron with a recipe for Alligator Sauce Piquant, which, no offense to any of you alligator eating craftsters, sounds disgusting. The first line of the instructions are "Cut meat into cubes and remove tallow". But than again, my favorite food is raw albacore nagiri, so to each their own.
This is the knitted shopping bag, which is awesome. I love that the strap is really long, so I can even ware it over my head, which would work great if I ride my bike to the store.
And the extras, which I don't have pictures of- the blue mug not only matches my decor, but was also very needed! I only had one mug and made my boyfriend drink tea out of a pint glass.
I also really wanted to read that book, so thanks for including that! I'm also excited about the timer, because now i can give my crappy Ikea one to the thrift store!
Thanks so much for everything! I am really lucky and got an amazing packaged!
