Okay!  Here is the awesomeness that Ghilie sent me! 

Here's what I got:

3 patterns (one for handbags, one for stuffies and one for finger puppets)
TEN scraps of some fun fabrics for me to practice sewing with
Seven zippers
Three tubes of craft glue (one with E6000 in it!  YAY!)
Alova suede to make three poppets
A poppet pattern on freezer paper
Instructions for the poppet
2 sets of eyes for poppets
3 skeins of Merino wool yarn

Here's everything



My favorite fabric of the group.  I may use these colors as the palette for my craft/guest/office room when I redecorate it.



The yarn.  It's going to be worked into a felted pouch.  I'm starting on it tonight!



The patterns.



I told her that I was getting a sewing machine soon and wanted to practice before making my first poppet and she completely spoiled me!  I can't wait to get my sewing machine to start sewing up a storm!

Thank you SO much, ghilie!  You definitely spoiled me and my stash is so much bigger now!

That is a beautiful package, ghilie!  Kimberly_Star, you are one lucky craftster! (so am I though, since ghilie is my fabulous partner too!).

Not so sure you will be thanking ghilie after you finish your first poppet - it is addictive and you cant make just one!  It is a sickness I tell ya!

Those fabrics are great - I agree that the colours in that floral are fabulous.  And those patterns are so cute - love that little chick stuffie (though I bet the pattern isnt as easy and well laid out as the poppet!).

I had the pics posted here, but I didn't want the thread hijacked!   Cheesy

Thanks again, ghilie!

I received my truly AMAZING package from ghilie this morn!  I actually squealed when I opened the box - and at my age, I dont squeal very often  Grin
I have no idea HOW she managed to pack so much crafty goodness into that box - it was ready to explode!
I love everything in it so much - I keep wanting to touch each bit. 

Thank you SO much, ghilie.  You really brightened my world after a rather dismal week.

I will post pics tonight as soon as I can rig up my camera to my sister's laptop.

Thank you also to instantkarma for organizing this swap that shows how kind and generous the craftster community is.
