I just finished my first personal swap with Heroinchic. FUN FUN!

She rocks. I knit her a nautaloid and she made me the best how to embroider kit Ever. Personal swaps are great.

Here's the kit:


sulky transfer pen
stabilizer paper
cute little embroidery scissors, I love scissors
embroidery floss
two cute little bags and flour sack towel
the most awesome and comprehensive how to book with great designs (including some aunt martha's)
and a darn cute needle case:



I can't wait to learn to embroider!

And as a special rockin' bonus she had seen that I had a ring from Tigerlilly's etsy shop on my wist and sent me one. WOW! It fits, its beautiful, and I get tons of compliments. It's like she knew it was my birthday and exactly what I wanted.

Thank you!!!

Here's the ring and my bizarrely wrinkled hand:

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

The ring is great -- I think it's made of shrinky dink stuff. It's deffinately plastic with drawing on it.

I can't wait to start embroidering!! Good thing I took the whole week off from work next week and I plan on crafting everyday!  Grin

I received a fab package all the way from piratecore in the states (I love getting packages - it is sooooo exciting!!!)

Here is a picture of all my swap goodies, including the fab green bag it all came in which will get lots of usage for picnics this summer


Here is the sweetie goodness - the chocolate was a bit smushed but still tasted fab!!


Captain Jack Ducky - my new bath buddy!


and finally the lovely bracelet (what great skull beads and black and purple are my fav!)


in action on my wrist


This swap has been so much fun - a great big thank you to the lovely Amy xxx

Im glad it arrived safely!! and so happy captain jack ducky has a new home, and name!:)
The bag is from this race they have every year here in Boulder, Colorado called the Bolder BOULDER (get it?) thought it would be a nice local touch.
