I got an angel package today from RhymeswOrange and it was amazing - wait till you see!  It arrived at my work and I forced myself to wait till I got home so I could photograph it all wrapped up - torture  Cheesy  eight hours I had to wait!

First of all let me remind you guys that this swap was one medium and two small items.  Now look at this box.  There is nothing medium OR small about it.  (The painting is there to cover up my address!



And I opened it to find TONS of packages, all wrapped up in pink tissue paper!



The first thing I opened was this gorgeous little Chococat ami - isn't he cute?



Then some yummy sweeties, cute Hello Kitty stickers, a little Hello Kitty notebook and a frog that looks like Keroppi who grows when you put him in water  Grin



Next some crochet stitch markers (can never have enough of these) with lots of Sanrio characters.  I love these!



Still more!  Lovely lovely Hello Kitty crocheted scarf, it's VERY long which is just how I like my scarves, and it's also very soft and I am going to wear this all winter.  In fact I'm wearing it now indoors because our apartment is cold as silly hubby forgot to put the heating on.



And there is a matching hat!  It's lovely and floppy and I love it and even my husband commented on how cool it is.  Here's a really terrible action shot taken with my Macbook camera, sorry it's so bad.



Then I found this sweet little package all wrapped up prettily with two Hello Kitty pencils:



And inside I found some pink thank you cards, I will use these to thank people for some belated wedding presents we have just received.  They're very pretty.



And finally, the most adorable crochet ducks - three of them!



I love these so much that they are going to go in my bathroom as a decoration as they match the colours in there, I might put up another shelf specially for them.  They are so incredibly cute.  Are they actually Sanrio characters?  If so I'm not familiar with them, but I am in love with them!

I am so grateful to RhymeswOrange for all the time and effort and thought she put into her package, I love every single thing in it and I really feel like my Christmas has come a week early!  I hope we get partnered in a future swap so I can try to make up for it all!  Thank you so much, and also thanks to Razorbladesmile for organising this swap and finding me such an awesome angel Cheesy

I'm so glad you liked your package!  I almost didn't send the scarf and hat because I wasn't happy with them.  Then after blocking they looked better.  Glad I sent them along.

The duckies are Chococat's friends the Duckies according to the Sanrio webpage.  They follow him around on his Character page. 

Happy ChrisKwanzUkkah!

Great job on the duckies!  Did you just wing it or did you have a pattern for them?

I found a duck pattern on the web but modified the heck out of it.  I made their heads much bigger,their tails tip up more and added the feet.  I can't say it was my pattern but in the end it wasn't the one I found online either.

I am away from home right now but if you want the changes to the pattern, I think I scribbled them down somewhere, PM me and I'll send them to you.
