As posted by fiorinda above, i received a great package!!  Here is the group shot!



Not only was it wonderfully wrapped (didn't get a pic of that because I was too excited! lol ) but the contents surpassed what I was expecting!!

From top, clockwise:
-Sprang Hairnet (for lack of a better term, can't think of it at the moment) which came in a beautiful box!!!
-Fancy Ribbons (part of the wrapping, but I HAD to include them!)
-Handkerchiefs, one with pulled/drawn thread, and one embroidered
-Purse, with a beautiful picture!
-White (leather?) book with embossed design
-Deer card, with note from fiorinda
-Tatted doily! love it!, but not sure where to put it, needs to be some where it is safe from animals lol

Thanks fiorinda!!!!!! <3

(sorry it took so long for the post!)

Okay ladies, get ready to feast your eyes. I received from Ruby Copperhead today. After arguing with the girl at the post office for ten minutes (don't ask) I returned home with my parcel.
First I have to post a picture of the box, which is especially attractive.

Isn't that nice?
One of my categories was Cistercians and I got way monked up.
I received a gorgeous book on the monastery of Furstenfeld, plus some candy (just like the monks ate, I'm sure) and some silver powder for polymer clay.

The book is in German, but some translations were thoughtfully provided.
Next I got some actual photos of monasteries local to Ruby and her family, many of them taken by her. These were enclosed in a box with a picture of a cloister walk on it. I have chosen three of my favourite pictures.

I also received a hand crocheted mini monk, and a nice medieval notecard.

Lastly, and my favourite, is an authentic Cistercian doll, tonsure and all.


I love it all Ruby. Thank you very, very much.

I knew from the beginning that I would have to make a monk doll for aethelberga the dollmaker. Grin It's so cool that she got a doll from each partner in this swap Grin I had planned on a lot more details for the monk, but I didn't feel too well lately and had to compromise a lot with this package. I hate that, but I think I transferred the essential and I am happy it was so well received.
It was also a lot of fun to go and learn about the Cistercians and discuss lots of related topics with aethelberga.
Thanks for organizing, thanks for being my partner, I'd do another round of history any time. *hint hint* Cheesy

I learned a lot from organising this swap & I'd do another round too. Maybe in spring.
