Thank You, Thank You, Thank You MonkeyThumb! I received my owly package yesterday afternoon. I was going grocery shopping and there it was in my mailbox. I fully intended to wait until I returned home to open it, but couldn't wait. So it was opened in the parking lot of Walmart, with my 2 girls in the backseat saying, "can I see? can I see? Is it for me mommy?! OOOO, that's beyouteeful mommy!" Without further ado, here it is...
First an over all view:
There was very cute needlebook. Got to learn hoe to hand embroider and do a blanket stitch... And
an owl trinket dish she found in a thrift store. Very cool rendition of an owl...
There was also a sparkly yellow pencil, with a teeny owl eraser cozy. LOVE IT!
MonkeyThumb says this was her first attempt at bookbinding, shall we believe her? The owl fabric is great and I love the inside leafy pattern. It will come in handy to keep track of swapish things.
There was a great set of owl cards, with many different style of owls. I wonder Whoooo will get the first one in the mail?
And my three favorites:
A "How are you feeling today" card. When you turn the wheel at the bottom of the card, the paper pieced owls eyes change, changing his mood. So clever!
A set of 3 stuffy owls, connected with braided yarn with a lovely little bell on the end. They are each unique and can be separated if I want them separated. Too cute!
Last, but certainly not least. My new owl pin cushion! I so love the material. And it is just adorable. The poor thing was with out a tree to sit in so it had to make do with my pathetic herb container from lat summer. He looks a bit bewildered to be sitting amongst the Rosemary don't you think? lol
Again, thank you for being my almost angel/2nd swap partner MonkeyThumb, you were awesome!
