I patiently wait each day for the postie to arrive.....and still no package Cry

Off course Jillville is still waiting for hers too. There seems to be a black whole somewhere between Scotland and Germany. Both parcels went in and neither has emerged yet.  Huh

Still waiting patiently!!

zombiecazz and jillville, i'm sorry you guys are having to wait so long  Sad you guys are the last two left of the swap that are waiting to receive. did jillville let you know that her package got returned back to her a few days ago? she said she was gonna re-send this week. i hope you guys get your goodies soon. thanks for being so patient!

And your scared to death that you are never going to come alive.

I haven't heard from my partner in ages and I have no idea if my parcel has ever shown up or not. I still haven't received either, so I thought I would show you all what I sent. I was very pleased with it and tried to incorporate as many of her wants into each item.

5 Themes:
1 rock'n'roll 50's kitsch - Vintage 50s butterfly Shawl with Vintage 50s gloves
2 recycling/ reusable fashion - bangles made with plastic bottles and charity shop ties one has "OMG PLEASE STFU" embroidered on it.
3 powerpuff girls/ superheroines - I made her own Powerpuff girl called Butterfly and painted it for her wall.
4 tattoo - I bought a journal and embroidered a Monkey Tattoo cover and added lots of vegetarian recipes decorated with hand drawn tattoos
5 i <3 my hairy little fat monster cats - I took a picture of her cats and embellished a charity shop t-shirt with it. Using applique, paint and embroidery.

These are the items from her list that I managed to incorporate.
Crafted Items List
# painting or photography
# jewelry
# mixed media tee
# subversive embroidery/ cross stitch
# handmade journal w/ maybe some nice vegan/ vegetarian recipes
# scarf/ shawl

Vintage 50s Crochet Butterfly Wrap

The extra that made me a couple of days late sending. I think they were really worth it. Vintage 50s Crochet Gloves

I sincerely hope that this parcel jumps out of the black hole that it has entered and arrives at Jillville's door.

zombiecazz, I love the journal cover. Are the monkeys themselves crayon-tinted or painted on??? The wrap and gloves are especially cool (note to self: learn to crochet when the weather finally cools off around here!).

The monkey's are painted on with acrylic paint.
 Thanks for the lovely comments.

I love to crochet. You should definitely give it a go.

Why is it the person who's package is phenomenal who gets flaked on?  Zombie, your package is amazing.  Those kitties are amazing!  I would have been overwhelmed by your generosity and talent if I had been your partner!  ps those monkeys are amazing too!
