Homerof2 - Love the doily, very pretty and the needle case is that your own pattern?

The needle case pattern came from the Annie's Attic pattern-a-day website (a few months back)

I actually received from my partner yesterday but was just able to take pictures and get them cropped, so without further ado, here's the great stuff I received:


There's a cool t-shirt with the crochet hook skull on it, which I can't wait to wear. (My partner wanted me to model it, but I didn't get a chance to.) There's also a cool crochet magazine written in SPANISH--what a neat thing to add to my collection of magazines/books. Now, ask me if I speak Spanish. Nope. Well, okay, muy poco, but the magazine has charts, so I'm hoping I can decipher some of the patterns that way. My favorite ones are the butterflies--of course! She also gave me a cute lil' felted bag, just the right size for necessities, some awesome stitch markers, a bar of homemade soap that smells deelish, four spools of size 20 crochet thread in awesome bright colors, and a really nice wire-wrapped pendant.

Here's a couple of close-ups of the pendant/necklace and stitch markers:




Thanks so much, Solitarya! Everything is wonderful.

I love the thread, too.
And the book--I think it's awesome, even if I can't read the words. It'll be fun using the charts.

I'm glad you like everything.  When I read that you like ocean blue, I kind of ran with it and used everything that could be conceived as ocean blue because I honestly wasn't sure of the hue.

Okay -- according to my records, this swap is done!  Please, everyone, let me know if I've made an error (ie, you have not yet received) or if you are missing feedback.

There are a couple of people who have not posted pics yet -- if the stuff you made has not been displayed, go ahead and post your own pics, or remind your partner again.

Thanks for a great swap, everybody!  I love that everyone did a great job and there were no flakers.     Kiss Cheesy
