I recieved from two of my wonderful angels.

First I recieved from Vera in Germany. Vera and I know each others from the same interest in needlebinding and from other swaps. She's just a darling!

Here is what she send me:


It's some beautiful wool fabric. Two skeins of home (natural) diyed wool - perfect for needlebinding. A little bag with the sweetest green colour and last but not least: Two needlebound amigurumis with a little hint of zombie Grin

Then I recieved from Pauline. We didn't know each other or anything, but she made me a super cute package! She raided my wist Cheesy

here the hole shebang:


There is some super soft homemade yarns in wonderful colors. Two buttun rings. A pair of earrings. A necklace. A felt eye. Two matchboxed stuffed with this and that. Totall cool and fun!
And then ber cute sleeping mask, here is an actionshot:

The necklace. I'm in love with this. I totally love this kind of necklace!


THANK YOU SO MUCH both of you!!!
And thank for being so patient and wonderful, Heather!

Love,
Anne

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Great you liked everything! Packing it was a lot of fun! Initially, I hadn't wanted to do any needlebinding for it, but then I just couldn't resist it. Btw, Shaun and Ed are crocheted, not needlebound, the first time that I used handspun yarn for crochet. For Zombie Ed, I used xome of my worst dyeing results, happy to find a ggod use for them.
Your camera is very good at catching the green nuances on the bag, they look very life-like. My cell phone cam always makes a sad olive out of them.

That yarn from the the other package looks so great! And the felt eye is very cool - will you use it as a pincushion?
