I am so lucky to be the first person to have received their parcel in the swap, sent to me by the awesome DiscoQueenHighness. I got it a couple of days ago, but didn't want to open it until I had sent hers out. Well, I sent it out today on my way home from work, so I treated myself to an unboxing before I started dinner.
First came this:

A beautiful water bottle with a nice foresty print on it, reminiscent of either Lothlorien or the Pacific Northwest.

Next was a notebook:

The paper inside is a variety of colours and styles, and is beautiful.

For my cubicle at work (I have decided) were these:

Magnetic notepads with pics from the movie, including my two faves, Gimli and Strider. Detail below.


Finally came the pice de rsistance, an amazing craft tote, complete with the Tree of Gondor. Here is a closeup of the tree detail:

and the Interior of the bag:

and detail of the gorgeous fabric inside:


Thanks so much for everything DiscoQueenHighness, and thanks for making my first swap so much fun.

I'm happy you like everything, aethelberga.  I noticed you liked the knitting bucket, but that wasn't cost effective postage wise for me.  So, I did the next best thing and made a knitting bag for you.  It's got room for knitting needles (striaght, DPN's & circular) and crochet hooks, Oh, and a bit of yarn, too.  Hopefully it will fit you toting around needs.  Lately, I've been all about recycling & being green so, when I saw that water bottle it screamed LOTR to me.  There's room for it in the bag, too.  Now, you needn't worry about being parched while crafting on-the-go.  Enjoy!

I love the water bottle. My boss came in to work with a plain metal one with a similar lid the other week and I really coveted it (as I am wary of drinking out of plastic) but this one is MUCH nicer. I love the print and the copper colour.

My husband made me get rid of all of my plastic.  It was painful as I had a ton of Tupperware.  My Tupperware lady was crushed, too.  Anyway, he approves of the metal bottles.  These are all the rage here in the Seattle area, too.  Makes it nice because we've got quite a selection to choose from.  I also like being able to refill my container instead of always using throw-away cups.  Everyone's going green ya know.  I take mine in the convience store here and they let me fill it for a quarter.  Can't beat a deal like that.

Wow, these are all awesome. That water bottle is great, and that knitting tote makes me want to take up knitting. Nicely done DiscoQueenHighness.  Smiley

To say I received is an understatement.  I was completely spoiled.  Thank you so, so much aethelberga.  Here's a group shot of all of my amazing goodies...



Aethelberga asked which I liked better, Gandalf the Grey or Gandalf the White.  Can you guess which one is my preference?  Her amazing crafting skills shine through with my newest love (move over hubby) Gandalf the Grey.



Next is an amazing Men of Rohan crochet hook roll done in reverse applique.  I love all of the artwork of Rohan.  It reminds me a lot of celtic artwork.  This horse is amazing!



Here's the inside...  aethelberga even included a few crochet hooks for me.  Thank you!



Here we have, Eowin.  Unfortunately, she's having a bad hair day.  It must get really cold in Rohan, so much so that one of her beautiful braids snapped in the chill.  I'll see what I can do to put her straight, though.



Elvish writing is so beautiful.  I love my new rice pack and cover.  What a pretty and useful piece of art!  I'm always so dang cold this will definately get put to great use.



I love this bag with the Tree of Gondor on it.  This is going to be very striking on my wall of WIP bags.  Now I just have to decide which project is going to go into it.  Maybe, I'll just use it for my purse for a while so I can enjoy it's beauty while I'm out, before it joins the art bags on my wall.



And the one thing I requested is more amazing than even I could have guessed...  It's a ponytail hat from my wist list and matching fingerless mitts.  They are so soft I can hardly believe it.  Hard to believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually glad there's snow in this weeks forcast (in April).  That means I can still enjoy these and not have to wait until next fall.



aethelberga, you completely spoiled me.  I really appreciate the time you took to craft for me.  Thank you so much!

I'm glad you liked everything. I had so much fun doing it. Bummer about the little 'Eowyn' but polymer clay does glue fairly well. I should also say that the elvish text says 'All that is gold does not glitter'.
