I got my package from Sunspotted today..a few minutes ago..and let me tell you all, I was really spoiled!! This was my first swap.

She sent me 3 little Star Trek novels, HIS WAY The unauthorized biography of Frank Sinatra by Kitty Kelley and a bonus craft book "Pretty things Easy to make" by Hilary More...Also she made me a crochet book bag with matching wallet..just gorgeous (she's really is talented), I really love them... and two bookworm bookmarks (which is funny because I sent her one too, we had the same idea  Wink) Here is a picture of it all:

A close up of my gorgeous new bag and wallet:

Thank you again Sunspotted!

I received from craftykaren ages ago, but haven't got round to posting pics til now. The books are just perfect, Wyndham is an amazing author. And the embroidery book looks so detailed, just what I need for when I have time to sit down and learn Smiley

Check out the gorgeous ribbony bookmarks, they have pretty buttons stitched on the ends and look very posh sticking out of my books!

I received from octopusinclothing today, and she totally spoiled me. Here's the group pic:

She found some vintage knitting books and pamphlets at a library sale, and yes, fellow knitters, that is a copy of Elizabeth Zimmerman's "Knitting Without Tears." This copy was published in 1971, and is in PERFECT condition!
Here is a closeup of the bookmarks and book she sent me. The book is "The Freakshow" by Bryan Smith. The bookmarks are fabric with funky paper sewn onto the front. Awesome!

Here's a link to the book description on amazon.com:
http://www.amazon.com/Freakshow-Bryan-Smith/dp/0843958278/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-8989790-2306557?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1183227904&sr=8-1
Sounds good, doesn't it? and here's one to the current edition of Knitting Without Tears:
 http://www.amazon.com/Knitting-Without-Tears-Easy-Follow/dp/0684135051/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-8989790-2306557?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1183229287&sr=1-1

THANKS AGAIN OCTOPUSINCLOTHING FOR A GREAT PACKAGE, AND THANKS TO TWIZTIDBLOOD FOR ORGANIZING THIS GREAT SWAP!!!!

I received from StarFire yesterday(? seems like longer ago than that, somehow).  I got Mists of Avalon, and a beautiful stitched bookmark! Having done cross stitch at one point, I can imagine how much time went into making it, and it's really well done!  I'll try to get pictures up this week (step 1) get off craftster, step 2) find the camera, step 3)take the picture, step 4) kick the kids off the computer so I can upload the pics.  Step 3 is by far the easiest of the bunch.)  Wink

so glad you liked evrything! I, Elizabeth is a good book, and the other one just looked good Cheesy

The footprint stickers are because I originally thought I was going to pick up a mystery for you and make a mystery themed bookmark, but then when I changed my mind on that, I decided to send youthe stickers instead Cheesy

I got my package from misswendiki today!!
It was awesome, of course!

Here is a group shot




And here are the adorable bookmarks!


The books are Dispatch, by Bentley Little, who I had mentioned to Wendy that I liked but only had one book from, and Blood Test by Jonathan Kellerman! They both look good, and I have a 5 hour plane ride ahead of me on Friday, and another 5 hour plane ride back home on Tuesday, so I think they will come in handy.
  And, BTW, she made me THREE bookmarks! My favorite is the Octo with my name on it Smiley

Thank you Wendy, you were a great swappie!
And thank you, Twizted, for organizing!
