I am so excited for this swap gallery as I am looking forward to seeing what everyone made/received!

The only problem that I have with the galleries is occasional feelings of swap inadaquecy since everyone's projects rock! Smiley

Okay, looks like I get to be the first to post my package.  Auntiem really spoiled me.  I cannot have had a better swap partner.

Here is everything unopened:

Here is everything opened. It included a feminist zine (title totally forgotten at this time), a Rosie the riveter scarf, a knitted bag for my lunacup/pads, a sachet with an om embroidered on it, a WWTGD crossstitched keychain, and fuzzy legged woman leg warmers.  Here they are all together. :

Now for everything by itself:

A wonderful sachet with the Sanskrit letter for om, with lavender from Auntiem's garden:

A crossstitched "What Would The Goddess Do" keychain

Back (I love this fabric she used):

My Fuzzy Legged Woman leg warmers (foot/instep)  which will be perfect for yoga:

A bag for a lunacup/various menstrual necessities (the colors are a little more muted, but I was trying to counterbalance the fuzzy/glare I was getting taking the pictures):

And last but certainly not least my Rosie the riveter scarf:

Thank you so much for everything Auntiem.  I really cannot say that I have a favorite, I love it all so much.  I hope you enjoy my stuff.

onecraftybitch - no woman is inadequate!  I'm sure you partner and everyone else will love what you've made.

speaking of which.... Pheather... that's awesome stuff!  Auntiem did a great job.  I especially love the key-chain (it's a question I should ask myself more often!) and the luna cup holder... I want one!

Claps hand in glee... that's got the swap off to a fantastic start!

Oh and my partner receives her stuff this evening so I'm at the nail biting anxiety stage... i am entirely adequate, i am adequate, phenomenal woman.. that's me... right so I just have to carry on that litany until I've seen her reaction!

Wow, great stuff! I love those leg warmers! Smiley

Pheather- awesome package! I love the key chain and leg/ankle/foot warmers.

I love seeing what folks have created. I am really interested to see how folks are interpreting feminism into crafting!

Pheather - you look so cute in the scarf! I'm glad you liked everything.
The On the Moon bag is from knitty if anyone wants to knit it:
The zine (the F-word) was a lucky find at the local newstand.
