I received from Samsara today! Check out the fantastic crafty goodies:

Handmade cards with tree photos that she took! Plus a bonus tree ATC and an embroidered tree brooch:


Here's a closeup of the cute little tree brooch:


A ginormous painted fabric wall hanging

You can't tell from the photo, but there is sparkly paint too - the photo doesn't really begin to do it justice.

Tree drawing done with watercolor pencils

I wish I could draw 1/1000th as well!

Two acetate paintings  (on a clear backing) to hang in the window, like stained glass:

They are very luminous - I'll try to take a photo during the day with them in the window later on.

Thank you so much, Samsara, I love everything!  Cheesy

*Blushes* You're very welcome Ptarmic! I'm glad you liked it all! And as I was writing this, the door has been knocked by the postman who has your parcel for me, so I shall go and open it now! Ooo, it's like Christmas again. I'm so excited  Grin

Apologies for posting these so slowly! Here's my haul from Ptarmic Wumpus! She really spoiled me  Grin
Firstly, an amazing felted Celtic Tree of Life wallhanging 

Then a felted sweater bag with a willow tree design

Look, the lining is fab too! And in the inner pocket were two felting needles so I can have a go!

Then there were two appliqued pillow cases in my favourite colours with a tree lullaby written on each one

There was also a reversible card woven belt with a Tree of Gondor design on each side (and Ptarmic also included the wool as a bonus!)

And there's still more, she also made an alphabet card set, with a card featuring a tree image for each letter of the alphabet

It's all so wonderful! I love it  Grin

Thank you soooo much Ptarmic!

Wow! They are all amazing and lovely! The bag is so original and beautiful and as a LOTR nut I'm blown away by the Tree of Gondor belt. Still jealous...

YAY Thanks for posting picks irish_chicky! Though I still plan to tke some of my own Smiley especially the diorama - you can't tell in this pic but it is soooooo awesome and pretty Cheesy:D!! I love love LOVE the necklace and bracelet too! The pillow made me laugh because I looked at that design but decided to use a different one LOL. *And* I now have my very first ATC. I am one happy craftster!

With first my life woes and now my technology woes (esp. the sewing machine!  Cry) I am running quite behind here Sad *but* so far everyone who has seen your works-in-progress has liked them a lot, so I think you will enjoy them when they *do* get there. Cheesy
