I agree, what a fabulous lot of crocheting! I can see a lot of thought went into everything, it's all so wonderful.

I had a bit of a fumble getting out of work today (I got the alarm set on me when I was still in the building! What the heck!??!), but everything turned around when I got home to find a huge package waiting for me from kidcompassion...who spoiled me. Wow.

Much like other partners have expressed, we felt like we had a lot in common. It made it all the more exciting a swap. Goodness, where to start?

The first crafted thing I saw was the t-shirt, and I had to pull it out of the box, because Bill Murray was staring at me!:



I heart BM. I am considering violating business casual law and wearing it tomorrow to work. This picture is actually up in the career centre where I work, where I have added a cartoon bubble with him saying the words, "You can get a job." Here is a close up:



But the awesomeness doesn't stop. She sent me a Canada map bag to celebrate a trip I took last year. I don't think I mentioned my love of maps, so this is perfect. Sorry the pic is a bit blurry, but I didn't want to wash out the colours with a flash.



A Walt Whitman magnet for the angsty poet lover in me:



A needle roll - I really like the colours on this one.



Some hand-blended tea - mint from her mother's garden. I LOVE natural teas.



And if you can believe it...kidcompassion knitted me a Clapotis ala Knitty! She stalked me ravel-wise. This is very thoughtful, so comfortable, and beautiful. I am going to try to wear it every chance I get. The purple colour is perfect, and she sent me along the extra superwash merino yarn she made it out of too!

On the floor:


On the me (it is so versatile!!):


She sent a completely random item: a sprout kit. Man this is great. I am so stoked to start sprouting:



Everything together, including the book and Stevie Wonder (eeeee!) cd that she sent:



A sincere thanks to kidcompassion for the awesome swap gear. I love every bit of it. And thanks to Gothchics and rira for organizing.

Mine too...  In fact, all the packages I sent out on Monday, all of the DC's aren't showing ANY info.  They say "There is no record of this item", which is common when I ship from the post office on our base...  Makes me really nervous...   Undecided

I owe photos and I didn't get the best onnes just yet but want to get some up now Smiley

I received earlier this week from miss Pink Leo and it's fantastic Smiley


A fantastic scarf with fun 'fingers' (as my son called them) to help keep me warm and suit my fun side (and it does) 
A absolutely fabulous shirt featuring Xander Crews on it (I have a cartoon crush on him hehehe)  It fits perfectly
A camouflage waterbottle cozy to remind me of my hubby and keep me hydrated as I run about doing the things I do Smiley


two beautiful dresses with matching headbands for my beautiful new nieces.  as I am completely obsessed over the two girls Smiley


and two angel swadles for the girls too  I will get action shots of these very soon (hopefully tomorrow evening)


and a gratiutious photo of the precious little girls that are consuming my time.  They will look absolutely beautiful in the dresses don't you think!

She also sent me a bunch of unshrunk shrinky dinks because I absolutely love watching shrinkies shrink.  I need to get a photo but there are too many little hands around right now to get them out without risking my nephews grabbing them and running!

Thank you again pinkleo! I had an absolutely fantastic time swapping with you!

I love the scarf!!!  And the camo water bottle cozy is great (looks over at my camo yarn now...)!  I may have to make one for myself since my DH is about to head on out to the sandbox...

GothChics- I just want to squeeze your nieces!  They look so much like my DD when she was an infant  Smiley
