Just when you thought this swap was over...get ready.... hold on... One! More! Package!

I've just received from the talented dragonflyducky who was/is an angel. I'm so happy I was flaked on, because this package has knocked my socks off!  Grin I'm going to show it off here with a lot of pictures... you'll see how generous she is!

First up, herbal closet sachets and a mystery item... Here's an example of how everything was wrapped - with cute tags and messages.



The mystery... a cute dress for my new Bythe doll, and yes, it fits!


But we're only getting started! Here is the relax section of the package, some yummy soap and a lavender neck pillow which I am wearing while I type and it smells SO GOOD:



Here are four reversible headbands - I love them all! Can you tell the bottom one has a tie for the other side? These are so great:



I also scored some luxury spinning fiber donated from her pet angora Chewbacca. Very nice because I know Chewbacca is loved and well-cared for. This is beyond fantastic and I can't wait to get spinning:



Speaking of spinning, I adore this amigurumi. Did you make up the pattern? I love it!



Last but not least, a beautiful and practical apron. I love it and will wear it a lot. I've been getting a few aprons lately and honestly I don't know how I lived without them. When I'm crafting, I'm wearing an apron. That's the way it is now.



There is also a Paul Weller CD but I didn't take a picture of it. (sorry!) Thank you Kerstin! You truly are an angel to me!!! I appreciate how you took care to make me things I really wanted. I love absolutely everything! Grin

Yay! Thanks! This package is so perfect for me. I couldn't be happier about it.  Smiley

About the Blythe - I did buy her on ebay. Her size is the same as the other girls. The primas cost less because they don't come with outfits - just something like a swimsuit. Dragonflyducky wasn't sure if the dress would fit since she was going off of internet measurements, I think.

Not to try to grab attention away from the Angel, but I never got around to posting the pics from the little package that Always sent to me, all in our star theme:

She made me a little tissue dispenser, perfect for this time of year, when i'm just dying from the sneezes!

a little decoupage box that contained

Star stitch markers!  You will notice that there are only two here.  Thats because the other two are currently involved in a project I'm knitting for Kiwi  Wink
  Thank you, Always!  You are one of the greatest swap partners, ever!!!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?
