we received! Cheesy well, my best friend received Wink sajona had a difficult swap because she was crafting for my best friend, who is a compelte tudor freak, and what can I say... sajona is a amazing crafter and my best friend is in awe at everything. se here we go!

group shot:




a beautiful cross-point embroidered pincushion! well, a booklet-pincushion. my friend has started to sew not to long ago so it's really useful and already storing all her needles. check out the cross point design: oak leaves and acorns, a very important Tudor motif





a very cute decoupaged round box with tudor roses and little oak leaves:




a notebook with tudor roses and oak leaveas on the cover:




a lovely note for my friend with roses on it:




and a wooden frame showing a poem by Sir Philip Sidney. the white roses were painted and cut out by hand!



the poem reads:

My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
By just exchange one for the other given:
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss;
There never was a bargain better driven.
His heart in me keeps me and him in one;
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides:
He loves my heart, for once it was his own;
I cherish his because in me it bides,
My true-love hath my heart, and I have his.

Sir Philip Sidney (1581)


she loved it all, sajona! thank you very very very much  Kiss

I'm glad she liked it all - but she seems to have forgotten the biggest item at the bottom of the box!

Oh I literally *just* received from Midnight7649! Everything is so gorgeous. I just tried snapping some pics but the lighting in my house sucks right now. Midnight, if you want to post any that you took go right ahead. Otherwise I'll try to get some clear ones up by the end of the day. Thanks!!

I received from silverfisch but I'm seriously struggling with uploading photos as my internet connection keeps going down or slow! These are the 2  I managed before photobucket gave up on me! (I've just managed to do the other 2 via craftser - phew!)
SOme little fimo tudor rose earrings - you can't any of the minute detail - each petal is seperate - they are very delicate!

Some amazing lino cut stamps of the tudor rose and elizabeth's signature complete with roller and ink so I can stamp them (very useful!)

and then a lovely hand bound book with images of Elizabeth inside - I shall have to start writing poems of something as it is so grand LOL!!


Thanks Silverfisch (and your friend too!)

 Shocked I think she didn't see that! I'll ask her to look better as soon as she comes back home later today

I'm glad that you liked it, it was real fun crafting everything ^^

and I am so proud of my friend, who wanted to participate and made the tudor rose earrings for sajona. can you believe it was her first time doing anything with fimo? I took a pic of them before sending, so I can ask her to make me another pair  Grin
