And I got my stuff from tucanchild too!

We'll start with a pillow (which I do believe is knitted [on top of a pillow form])plain black on one side, sparkly black on the other!. It'll suit my room quite marvellously. 


The smaller items: coasters, flatty pens with literary quotes, and origami book corners that I had on my wists (some are missing because they're already in books!)


And the wordiest items: a clock and a cross stitch! Both awesome, and the cross stitch highly amuses me.


Thanks tucanchild!

i received my package from facesofyellow! i guess my postage system is kinda screwy cuz she sent it ages ago.....



in the background, the lovely lovely pride and prejudice t-shirt, then clockwise from the top (no pun intended...) the book clock with cork #'s and letters, a homemade blank book, terry pratchett's "reaper man," and a cool cool eyeglass case i believe made from a tie.
awesome job!! i hope i didn't forget aything, i pretty much delved into my package all at once.

Psyche, you got an awesome package. Now, I need one of those book corners. I might make some for my sister too, since she Shocked bends the corners! Shocked

Tucanchild, how's you make those?

And yes, books are better than people. Tongue

Sorry if I've been slow with the upkeep. I'm opening a store on Friday and I'm getting married in two months. My brain has turned to liquid. If you notice something hasn't been updated please let me know.
Also we have one flaker for this swap, I'm going to need an angel for jesseeyore as aceyf is nowhere to be found. I will post this is the right folder as well.

I think you've been a fab organizer-I really enjoyed this swap and the feedback has been really great

My package from Elif arrived last night!  I'd been having a bad crafting day, but it cheered me right up and I was able to finish some knitting.

I was waiting to take pictures today so the light would be decent, but what do you know, the weather is crap so I still couldn't get good pictures.  They do not do anything justice!  Elif, if you have better ones, feel free to post them.


The whole shebang.  Clockwise from bottom left:

--Checkout cards for lending books in my personal library.  Perfect because I've got quite a collection, and I love the little note at the bottom of each one that says "Overdue fines may apply."  Cheesy

--A little flat pouch/pocket with "Library Card" hand embroidered on one side and clear vinyl on the the other for keeping my card handy.  I have a real problem misplacing it; most recently I found in shoved in the center of a ball of yarn.  I have no idea why.

--Button with "Ich <3 die Bibliothek" because I like German.

--Cork board with bird push pins for library receipts.

--A sampling of teas to read with.  (Somehow she knew I was a budding tea drinker!)

--A handbound mini book with an adorable chickadee tag.  The one is small enough that I don't feel daunted by it and I can use it!

--And finally, a book tote with an applique manatee, who is very excited about the library.


Close up of the cork board.  I love love love it!  It's so cute and small enough to fit on my nonexistent wall space.  I also think it's cute that the hummingbird is getting in on the swallow and banner tattoo action.  I love hummingbirds.


Full shot and better color of the bag I managed to get before it got all cloudy.  I named the manatee Seamus because Elif thought he ended up looking like a seal (I know he's a manatee, and that's what counts!) and for some reason I think Seamus is a sealish name.  I was also watching Andromeda, and my favorite character is Seamus Harper because he is cute and a little goofy and excitable, much like the manatee.  The lining also matches the manatee perfectly.


Close up of the stitching.  The embroidery is perfect.  I mean have you ever seen such round and tight french knots?  I didn't think so.

No problem- it sounds like you have a lot going on. I've been trying not to get too disappointed over being flaked on because I'm sure there's someone out there willing to angel for me. This was still a really awesome swap! Thanks for being the organizer. Smiley
