Wow. WOW! That's all I can say. Secret FOC, I wanna be your neighbor, your best friend, your pet sitter...everything!  Grin

Ladies...I give you The Coolest Pillows of All Time.


Please, don't push, don't shove! There are enough pictures to go around. But unfortunately for you, there are only enough pillows for ME!!!

Ok, I know I'm being a wierdo, but I *completely* freaked out when I opened this package. These are so me, it's utterly ridiculous. I LOVE them.

The backs:


And a closeup of each:


Look at the craftsmanship! The stitching detail! The fabric choice! I literally spent a few minutes just turning them around and around and admiring all the different fabrics.

Seriously, whoever you are (and I'm starting to formulate a few ideas...  Wink)...THANK YOU! These are so amazing!  Grin

My Secret FOC also continued her mysterious note habit...I got a note that was written in relief, and had to be rubbed on with a crayon to read it. How clever! You sly dog, you...  Grin

Edited to add:
The pillows are based off of some crazy log cabin ones from mt wists, by the way.

And the dog in the center panel of the one on the right looks exactly like one of my three dogs! Coincidence? Hm...

Back:


With recipies like fettucini with garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, where can you go wrong?  Grin


And look at the neat dividers!

She put in a *ton* of really great recipies...especial ly chocolate desserts - my fave! This was such a cool swap item  Grin

Thank you, dontlookback!

Yay! I got my package from redheadskydiver, and now that my camera's fixed I can actually post it!

She gave me the Stitch 'n Bitch Happy Hooker book, from my wists. I hope to soon become a crocheting fool!

But wait! There's more!


Check out the hadmade crochet hook roll that she sent! Is that the cutest fabric ever, or what? And it came with crochet hooks in it, so I can start working on some projects right away.


Thank you, redheadskydiver!!  Grin

Oops! I prematurely posted this one! I guess it happens to all Craftsters, sometime...   Embarrassed Lol... Now it's fixed!

This is my package from xladyluckx. O. M. G. First of all, she wins for the largest package I've ever gotten from a Craftster swap. The box was huge! I am simply overwhelmed by all of the awesome goodies that she put into my package. Read on...

A *beautiful* log cabin pillow, inspired by one in my wists. Sushi + quilting + throw pillow = LOVE. The fabrics are so great! And the way she put them together was so clever. It's like log cabin, but with her own twist. I adore this pillow.  Grin


And check out the brocade fabric she sent! Green...oh, do I love green. And these are big pieces, people! Like a yard each! My mind is overflowing with possibilities for each one. Maybe I"ll have a post sometime soon with smething great made out of these gorgeous fabrics. Smiley


What looks like an innocuous toolbox...


...until you open it up, and it transforms into a MICROSCOPE SLIDE PENDANT KIT! Aaaah! I was so excited when I opened it that I kind of did a happy dance. Hope the neightbors weren't watching. Smiley It includes: plastic gloves, flux, a flux brush, slides, jump rings, thick and thin copper tape, lead free solder, and a whole ton of different kinds of paper to use in the middle. I love getting crafty kits, and this one takes the cake. Everything is so neatly labeled, and there is everything I could possibly need.


THANK YOU, XLADYLUCKX!   Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy

Catpants, you've done it again. What a fantastic swap package!! Check out what she sent me, ladies and gents!

My Domokun stuffy! I absolutely love him.  Smiley He has a place of reverence, above my sewing table. His goofy grin makes me smile when I'm frustrated with my latest crafty endeavor.


Bonus shot with Tim, one of my three dogs. He's taken quite a shine to Domokun...and not in a rip-your-guts-out, tear-off-your-limbs kind of way. He tries to cuddle with Domo. It's cute.  Cheesy


And a bonus gift! I am now the proud owner of my very own nestlace. The 'eggs' are such a beautiful color. I've gotten a ton of compliments on it already. And check out the Vote for Carl campaign sticker! Ha ha ha...

Thank you, Tracy!! Grin

I got my scrapbooking kit from bhean today  Grin



I'd list the contents, but it would take up a whole page! Suffice it to say that I have *more* than enough paper, doo dads, stickers, and ephemera to seriously start scrapbooking. And the colors are so perfect! The best part is the 'how to' packet. It has instructions for brown paper bag albums, which I've been wanting to try forever.

Thank you so much, bhean!!

I got my first package!  Grin



Six beautiful kanzashi hair clips, and eight thank-you cards from my wists that I absolutely adore. I just can't gush enough! What a great first package!  And my FOCer added the funniest 'ransom' note...saying that if I didn't like my gifts, I would have to put a million dollars in the fountain by the library!! Good thing I *love* them!

Thank you, FOCer!

Squee! look what I got from bhean! BLYTHE CLOTHES!



Check it out: yellow pj pants, a white tank with cherries, a mini mug, an umbrella, sexy gold pants, a pleated skirt, a black t with sequins, an adorable green dress, and a knitted hat!

And would you believe she's never made Blythe clothes before? I sure don't.  Wink They're amazing quality, and they all fit so well.

Thank you, bhean!  Grin

*edited to add*
I can't believe I forgot the best part: see my Blythe's feet? Those are the world's tiniest bunny slippers! With little teeny bunny faces. Their construction is beyond my comprehension. :-D

Snacker sent me a wonderful thank you gift: fabric!


Look! Salt and pepper shakers! How cute is this? I especially love the owls. Can't wait to use it!

Thanks, snacker, and you were a ton of fun to craft for!

Ok, people. Prepare to be amazed. And jealous...-ified. Yeah, jealousified.

I am now the proud owner of *two* pieces of original kittykill embroidery! They will soon be living on separate tote bags.


I love tattoo/flash art. And I love love. This is perfect!


This one made me gasp. Isn't it amazing? My favorite color: apple green, with my favorite: cherry blossoms, and adorable birdies!


And, as if that wasn't enough, she sent me a bonus: two beautiful tea towels that she got at an estate sale. I have plans to make a bag and a quilted wall hanging from them.

Thank you so much, kittykill! Your embroidery is amazing!  Grin
