once your SO has stolen a few of the things you receive in swap packages and looks more excited to come home and check the mail for new swap goodies....thats when you know they have truly converted to a craftster swap addict by association. haha

I just had to open my package - I think Paige talked to some people who know me or she's just magic!

Here is my cool new Keychain


And these adorable cards I can send out for the holidays - My daughter grabbed these straightaway so I had to get them back.


And this is so cool/coincidental/weird - I pulled out some sunflower fabric yesterday and was trying to decide what to make out of it.  And this is what Paige sent me - this totally awesome needle punch sunflower.


And this lovely purse made of wool and in the most beautiful teal blue-ish color.  I have a grey and teal suit that it will look fabulous with and it matches my shoes - I think she called my kids . . .



Thank you so much Paige, I love it all - Christmas in September.  And yours should be there very soon.

Oooooh, do you likey? I hope so! I'm glad the bag will match some of your things. The punchneedle and keychain were two things I never tried before. The punchneedle was SO fun!

Here's another photo of the keychain that shows the colors a bit better:

OMG everything is so nice!
I love MoJen's new needle case. It's one thing us knitters and crocheters always think about but rarely make, we just stuff them in biscuit tins and old wipe boxes going "I really should make a needle case...I really should"

Habitat-lady I love the idea you have already come up with for your punch embroidery. So pretty, I want to learn how to do that as well.

I'm personally sitting here with my coffee cozy, my needle case is out as I was finishing off a zipper and I have my new stitch markers on some items I have been making...they look so much better an dwork better then the scraps of yarn I had on there.

Great job so far to everyone! I'm excited to see more as it all comes in!

I think I won the swap lotto.  Kaissa has made such a beautiful package, it was like christmas to open it all!

Exciting!


Look at all those presents.


Unwrapped!


My kids initials 9" handpainted


Oh-so-cute jumper for my boy


Close up of Kaissa's train handiwork.


Too good to get baby puke on.  Really well made and my favourite colours!


The kids are both really crook today, so no action shots of the bib and jumper yet. 

Wow, look at this!  Kaissa stalked my wist for that fabric.   Cheesy


This is so perfect, I love saturated vibrant colour!


Another close up - I love ric rac.


Kaissa asked me if there was anything we didn't get here in Perth, and I said: "animals that eat you".  So here's what she sent:

It made me laugh.  So cute!  I love the handmade cards too!

But wait! There's more!


And inside, super fabric goodness:


Kaissa, thank you!

OOOHHH Schmidty, that fabric is beautiful. 

And that bib!  I would have to put that bib in a shadow box on the wall for a decoration.

Kaissa did a great job!
