I'm so glad you are pleased with the items. Smiley No worries on my package, I have no doubt it is wonderful. Just enjoy your time in Israel. Smiley

The Oy Vey keys are certainly a fun item that makes me smile when I see it on my keyboard.

Received my package from sophieangele today, and I have to say this is the most gorgeous package I've ever gotten in a swap.

sophieangele really made items that fit me to a complete T. She could not have made items more suited to me if she had known me for years.

So without more gibber jabber, here are my items from the UK. Smiley
Whole package:


Red bracelet, earrings and necklace:


Blue & Green necklace, bracelet and earrings:


Afikoman bag:

Thank you so very much for the beautiful items you made for me, sophieangele. Clearly you put a lot of thought and heart into their creation. Smiley

Wowza, those are all so gorgeous!  Lovely jewelry and that afikomen bag took my breath away!  Is that beaded embroidery?

Bee-you-ti-ful!  Lucky you HSG!

I'm so excited, the end is in sight for my package.  A few loose ends and one more project to finish up.  I should ship in the next couple of days!

Yes, the bag is beaded. I am just in awe of how precise the letters are formed.  Smiley

Thanks, I'm so glad you like it HSG, I've been on tenterhooks Cheesy You certainly gave me an awesome package so there was a high standard to maintain!


Btw, I meant to say that the red bracelet might seem very big, but that's because there is a little chain between the two ends of the clasp - it just folds and dangles when you close the clasp, it's meant to help stop it falling off  Wink I just thought I'd better say something I gave a similar one to a friend last year and she gave it back saying 'you must think I'm an orangutan! It's enormous!'. She hadn't realised there was a clasp  Cheesy

Thank all you for all your generous comments, and HSG I hope you have fun using your goodies!

The pictures do not really show how very pretty everything is, but you get the idea. Smiley

Sheva I sent you a PM with the link. Smiley

That afikomen bag is so pretty with that beaded embroidery.
I finished my main item but am working on a little extra to complete the package.  If I don't ship by the end of the week, then I will ship by the due date.

I am excited to say that i received today!!! I'm sorry it took so long for me to post this but i was organizing a "give away" for my blog and got tied up. Anyways this is the  perfect day to receive because today is my English Birthday. Thank you so much Rose i love everything.
Here is what i received...
1. The most beautiful crocheted Challah cover ever. I love it so much i am going to take an action shot of it before Shabbos tomorrow.
2. A beautiful crocheted bookmark. I immediately put it in my Siddur and will be used daily. I love it!
3. The funnest stuffed Challah, My toddler loves this he has been schlepping it around all day its so cute. I am going to set it up for him on Shabbos " Just like Tatty"
4. A gorgeous cross stitched Chai. The work was amazing and i can't wait to put it up. L' Chaim to my chai!
5. Last but not least was a box of chanukah candles but not any ol box. Rose was nice enough to color organize it for me so when i opened it it was a beautiful shaded box of colors not the shlubby multi color pack. I can't wait for Chanukah. I loved it all so much . Thank you Thank you! A Dank!! Todah!!
