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.

I just got home and found a note in the mailbox telling me that I have one parcel waiting at the post-office from "abroad"! I'm so hoping that it will be from my swap partner rosali...I'm just going to grab a bite and then I'm off to find out!

Yay! I have received! Thank you so much rosali! Cheesy
Here's an overall view of the lovely contents:



Clockwise from top center:
-A beautiful handmade photoalbum. I love the autumn feeling over it.
-British feminist zine. Am I ever looking forward to reading this? Oh yes!
-Royal Gold: chocolate, yum! Grin
-Royal/Nautical buttons. These remind me of my grandma. She was canadian, but still a royalist I suppose, since she had cushions with the queen's portrait on. Anyway she used this kind of buttons for some of the sweater's she would knit. Oh, and I should probably add that that's a good thing!
-A Note with a cute monkey.
-Owl notelets - I'm not sending these in any swap packages rosali! I love the motive, so I'm keeping them, every single one!!
-Windsor Castle Guidebook, awesome images for cutting up and turning in to boxes and giftbags, collages, scrapbooking etc, THANKS!
-English Lavender Kit: Cologne, Soap Leaves & Drawer Sachet. Normally I only use lavender in biscuits. Now all of me can smell of lavender, yay! The Soap leaves are really cool, I've never seen anything like them before. Shocked
-A bunch of paper containing glittering fibers. Joy! I am a paper freak. I love paper. I have loads of paper, still I keep wanting more!
In center:
-Brown checkered cotton fabric. I already know what to do with at least a scrap of it! I've been looking for a while for some material to use for a watch I'm making, and I think this is it. Hold eyes open for the watch in the completed projects folder!



Close-up on the owls: (did I mention that I love them??)



Last but not least, I wasn't the only one who appreciated the package, my cats also showed large interest for the contents. Below is Coyopa having a go at the chocolate money. A greedy little rascal, I didn't say he could have two!



Once again THANK YOU SO MUCH ROSALI!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the plastic bag that all the things are spread out on in the top image. It's a really cool picture of windsor castle. I'm saving it for some yet unknown purpose....

Do you guys just send each other packages - like a gift exchange pen pal?  Really cool idea!  But I am stupid, I don't know what you all are doing. Huh

Hi bblueyez77,

You're not being stupid, it can be quite confusing for new people.

We are all taking part in an organised swap - there is a whole section on it here on Craftster.

Here is a link to a thread that gives you more information on the swapping process:
