Does the dc# indicate that the package has been received? If it has, you can PM me and go ahead and put the photos up. Then I'll change your feedback

Smiley

Okay. 2 more swappers have received positive feedback. I also need to hear from two more swappers on your swap status. If your name is in red on the front of the thread, you need to PM me immediately.

Here's one of the things I sent Lemon Floor Wax, the other was one of those little owl stuffies that are floating around here.  These aren't the best pics, so hopefully she can take some?  





It's a gigantic diaper bag.  Smiley  The owl on the front is my non-single-line embroidery.  I think it turned out really well. (It took a loooooooong time!)  I hope she likes it.

Igobylorib received my package a little while ago, but hasn't been able to post pics yet, so I thought I'd pop one up here. (it's not the best picture, oh well). I sent a little bird stuffie/throwpillow (inspired by anthropologie), a knit cuff w/ bird bead, a stack 'o' stenciled cards, and a little owl fabric clutch (first try on this style, based off of laurasaurus' tute).
Yippee! This was a fun swap. Everyone's stuff is fabulous, daahlings! Wink

Damnit, we have a flaker. Sad Luckily we managed to pre-empt it and get weeping_cloud to hold off on sending the package until her partner sent it out. As weeping_cloud has chosen to keep her package, this means that we don't need an angel for her.

Also, two more swappers have received feedback.

I'm glad that everybody enjoyed this swap and the gallery! Smiley Smiley

Sooooo, my mom finally went to the post office today to pick up:

The BEST PACKAGE EVER!!!

everyone, get your "wists" button ready, you're going to need it when you see what I got from Caradee!
(My pictures are not the best - I had to take them under my craft light, since its totally dark in my house...)

Here's the whole package:


A very sweet needlefelted pouch, a little bird on the back:

and "tweet" on the front - so cute!  Really nicely done, just like something off the pages of a Japanese craft book!

a little book, with step-by-step instructions on how to make an origami bird:

and inside shot:

A button covered felt/stuffed bird, to wear as a pin:
(I really love the colors you chose for the buttons, and how you aranged them!)  The paper bird is the pattern she used to cut the bird out.  Also, there is the most adorable little owl charm, I couldn't get a good close up of him, but he's very cool!  Caradee said she couldn't think of what to do with him, but I think he might just get worn as a pin on his little black string, just as he is!

And my most favorite thing:

Its a "go-knit" pouch!  Made out of black cordoroy with reverse-applique birds!  This is what kills me that I couldn't get a decent photo of... it's incredibly well-made (Seriously, Cara, you should sell these on Etsy - people would pay a ton for them and they'd fly off your site - no pun intended!)  There are pockets inside for stitch markers and such, and even a yarn guide loop so my yarn doesn't get tangled.  There's a loop on the outside, with a snap, so I can snap it around my belt loop, or the handles of my bag, and knit wherever I go!  It has a drawstring around the top, to hold everything inside.  It's absolutely perfect - I love it!  I feel like Christmas came early, and you just gave me all the perfect presents!

I'm so glad you liked everything!!
The pouch was actaully wet-felted (hmm, though I did some needle felting to attache the felt bead), not that it matters. 
I'm so glad the "go-knit" knock-off bag/mini-tote went over well, I was hoping that you hadn't got yourself one, as you had said your wist was really old, and well, that's where I got the idea from!

I actually didn't manage to get any better photos than you, and I forgot entirely to take some of the bag!!

If you are going to get into the MacKintosh Toffee, what you'll need to do is smack it hard against something (while it's still wrapped) to break it up in bits.  That was the bonus "Canadian candy".

My pack from marionwilhelm was awesome-unfortunately i don't have access to a computer to download the photos to (or a camera really) but she sent me
+An amazing ipod cover with the body of an owl on it
+A jewlery box decoupaged with all my favorite types of birds
*3 really cute sachets with images of crows.

I love it all and wish i could share it.
