I finally took a picture of both of catpants packages together!


In her first package she sent me a tiny retractable measuring tape to go with my knitting in a cute fruity theme  (you pull on a bunch of bananas to get the tape out!) and two bars of felted soap.  Felted soap is a mystery to me as to how it's made, but I LOVE using it.  Heh, now that I've taken pictures, they're going in the guest bathroom and kitchen---most excellent for getting sticky dough off of your hands.

Then she sent me a second package!  This one had the needlefelted goodies:  sushi earrings which I wore right away out with my friends who had come in from Chicago, heart barrette (I get lots of compliments on this at work), and a purple flower pin which I had to find.  I had set it up on a bookcase so my cat wouldn't get it, cuz she loves to mess with needlefelted things, and it was the last piece before I could take a picture.  Yay!  Now I can wear it!

Thank you so much, catpants!!!  And sorry about getting pictures up late... Embarrassed

Irid3sc3nt and i did a swap, i swapped her 3 handmade knitting needles with toppers for my crochet maryjanes.





unfortunately the ellies did not make it in one piece.

i love these, they were wrapped up very nicely and each individually bubble wrapped, plus extra bubble wrap top and bottom to protect it.  Even with all the cushion, I guess the trip was just too hard on the elephants.

i was thinking of just setting these on display, but i think I'm going to use the Doraemons to knit right away... I want to try them out.

When she sent the package she had said she made my one of my favorite characters, i thought she meant hello kitty, i didn't think she meant Doraemon.

wheeeeeeee!  I'm so happy. 

now i'm all anxious for her to get my package.  I hope it arrives ok... maybe it got lost on the way there.  If so, i'll send out another one...

i hope you like your slippers as much as i like my needles!

thanks for such a great swap.

and thanks catpants for hosting it!!

oh, poo.  I'll send another set for you!  I really tried to package it well since postal service+long skinny wooden object=breakage.  I'm going to mark it as Fragile....  although I've heard that if you mark things as Fragile they beat up on it....

That is so true! It seems like every time I get a package with Fragile on it, the box/envelope is in terrible condition. I told my boyfriend that I think the postmen play soccer with the packages.

I don't think there's anything you can do to make the package not damaged upon arrival, you shoulda seen the other package I got, it was padded with paper and all the paper fillings on the inside burst open, paper feathers all over the swap items.  It's ok about the needle, I'll just tape it back up, i think it will still be useable. 

I used the doraemon needles to cast on for a panta last night... hehe, Doraemon flying about everywhere.  Is it weird that i don't want to use the swap items for fear of it being mishandled by me, and broken?  although i think I would encourage the person that got my items to use the items, otherwise it seems sooo wasteful.

Those last few packages are really great! This swap didn't have a ton of people in it but it had such a high quality of goods! I love it all.  Smiley  I received from la_chrystelle and I can't believe how much amazing stuff there is in this package. SERIOUSLY! I appreciate how she took the time to think about what I would like (colors, themes, etc.) Check it out:

Artwork: (nice!)


Necklace: (sweet!)


Pillow #1: (Cute!)


pillow #2: (cute! - these pillows will look even better when I find the right size pillow form - I just used what I had on hand for the photo)


Craft utility belt: (LOVE THIS)


in action! (First pic is true color)


tote: (yeah!)


Hip belt: (love)


in action, sassy-style:


black hip belt: (couldn't get a decent pic in action but trust me, it's great)


wrap skirt: (it's looking kinda nice on my dining room table right now!)


and of course, the famous stroopwafels: (yes I already ate one and they are very yummy)


Thank you so much for swapping with me la_chrystelle! Your skills are terrific and your generosity is beyond stunning. I am still in shock over how great this package is. I love everything you sent!  Kiss

stroopwafels are hard to describe, but I will try: They are two thin waffles with a layer of caramel in the middle. You make some hot coffee or tea and put a stroopwafel on the top of your cup, like a lid. After a while, the caramel inside melts and when you eat it you want to marry it!

Nice package, indeed. lol.  Wink

I received my package from itscute on Tuesday, which happened to be a cold, windy day and I was on my way to hang out with friends.  So as we sat around cutting out magazines, we each had on a pair of her fab crocheted maryjanes!  Perfect timing~thanks itscute!

(Pics soon)
