picture time! i wish i'd gotten a picture of the box, as it honestly looked like it was going to burst open spontaneously. not sure if this was the way customs repacked it, or just because it was jam packed with awesome
firstly - some candy (minus the hershey's milk duds that were too delicious to hand around long enough to be photographed) as AlwaysInspired and i are from opposite (kinda) sides of the globe, we are swapping some candy too.
supplies: a needle book and pincushion in matching fabrics! AlwaysInspired made all the supplies herself. they're super cute (and useful - best combination). no more needles through the foot for me!!! i hope the photo shows the lovely detail on the embroidery.
a hipslinger!!!!!! she even modified the design from comments on my wist, and used fabric on my wists. could my package get any more awesome?!?!
it's even got a little carabiner for my keys and fastens at teh back with velcro - perfect for theft by sibling
please ignore the muffin top
and finally (drumroll please, people), the piece de resistance......................................
holy crap an awesome pillow!!!!! the multicoloured fabric kinda reminds me of australian indigenous art. the embroidery on this is sooooo soooooo perfect. to think my partner rated herself as intermediate. such modesty!
living on my bed for the moment (my bed is kinda overfull with pillows). my old chair is too ugly for the pillow, but as soon as i get a new chair, it will have a nice snuggly home on my chair.
closeup of the embroidery.
ooh lah lah!!
thanks so much AlwaysInspired. you rock!!!!!
