Oh my.  I am totally lost on what things you have created!  I can't wait to see what is in the box!  I love anticipation. Yeah, I don't open Xmas packages until Xmas either though.  Love the teaser shots.  My curiosity is totally peaked!

Teehee... when you see what the first and the third pictures will turn out, you'll say: I KNEW it! As for the second one, no chance. I added pink frills where no pink frills were ever meant to be. Smiley I think I'm more of a swap devil actually Smiley at least if you let me lay hands on certain colours. Smiley
I hope we can soon post the items, I can't wait to make one of them my new avatar. The one from the third picture, actually. I really loved making all these things, and I surprised myself on what I could do. Thanks for being your swap angel.

Ok, I could have never ever guessed what the teaser pics show, because I didn't expect anything as fabulous as what I got! I totally love the things my angel Ruby Copperhead send me as she combined two of my favorit things, amigurumis and Discworld.
And I really like the packaging too. Everything was wrapped on its own and there was a text on the inside of each wrapping explaining what it was and why it is in there!

First the left-overs and some sweets:

And now the crafted items!
Number 1+2: crochet hook cozies + more special crochet hook cozies(you don't need to take your mind out of the gutter  Cool)

Those kept the bf puzzled way too long untill he figured it out, so I thought it would be ok to post them here.
Number 3: Sakura flowers; I think I will use them on a bag I have been planning for a while as they would be perfect for that

Number 4: More flowers, stackable!

Number 5: I squeeled at this point  Cheesy and couldn't imagine how it could possibly be topped as there remaind 2 more things to be opened.
It's the Death of Rats complete with bones underneath his rope!

Number 6:Death of Rats's granddaughter! She's soooooo cute and spots a sickle instead of a scythe.

Number 7: OMG!!! I knew immediately who it was and the squeeling got a lot louder this time! It's Susan Sto Helit also from the Discworld novels and she's just perfect! She's got a scythe and hourglass and both mask and dress can be removed!
With mask:

Without mask:


Thanks so much for beeing my angel Ruby Copperhead and for the fantastic package! I feel special because you seem to have put a lot of thought into all the things you made me and still you were super fast!

P.S.:
The run down:
tablecloth 2 EUR
black wool  1 EUR
beige cotton 1 EUR
pink cotton 0,50 EUR
white cotton 1 EUR
rainbow charm 1 EUR
thimble 0,50 EUR
some gummibones 0,50 EUR

= 7,50 EUR
equals 10 US Dollars

Wow, I didn't realise this swap had not finished Shocked
You have been very patient, Javede - and it looks like your long wait was worth it!

What a wonderful package - I am always in awe of what people can make with crochet! The little rats are very cute with their tiny scythes *lol*

I'm very happy that javede likes everything. I had to work fast, because I had some serious birthday business coming, and I was afraid that if I wouldn't finish fast, I would take forever... 
I had a lot of fun making these things, and I am happy how they turned out (the whole family begged me to keep Susan Smiley ). I have made dolls before, but not this size (but I wanted it to match the size of the rats), and I ran into some entirely new problems (the dress!). But I never got stuck, the doll more or less made itself, I just had to keep up (and remember all the tricky parts for next time).
When I saw the Death of Rats on javede's wist, I immediately knew what I would be making for her. I underestimated the complexity of the doll, but that's okay, because I still finished it in time. Javede and craftydeb were very nice all the time and supersupportive, so I think it's them who are responsible for the amazing speed, because I am usually a lot slower. Thanks! It feels good to see one's limits pushed further. I loved being javede's swap devil Smiley even if I had a nearly fatal attack of pink cuteness allergy Wink That's why I had to give some pink items a bit of an edge. That was self-defense. Smiley

Oh, and finally, in case you haven't guessed yet, the spoilers were:
1. hook cozies (including a naughty one - don't tell me that wasn't your first guess Smiley )
2. frills on the coat of Death of Rat's Granddaughter
3. a progress picture of the skull mask, you see the eye sockets and the forehead  (so it's actually upside down - but still looks like a face)
