Terrific package, pseudo! You are a sewing master! (mistress! Wink )

AND, I am uploading pictures now of my very beautiful and amazing package from pinkanddinky. I think this was her first IYP but I don't think she'll have any problems getting partners for the future as she completely spoiled me!  Flickr is being slow (and I took a ton of photos) but I'll post them as soon as I can!

Wisting fingers ready??? Are you sure???

Okay! Here is my amazing package from pinkanddinky.  I'm sorry, PAD, for taking a couple days to post pictures.. first my husband was out of town with the camera and then I was waiting for a sunny day.  After checking the forecast, I know that's not going to happen, so I hope these photos are okay.

BUT.. here it is!


The first out of the bag was this gorgeous hand-stenciled pillow.  Pinkanddinky drew the stencil from hand based on a pillow on my Wists.  It's absolutely gorgeous!


Now THIS is the most amazing embroidery ever! It came directly off my Wists and I love it!!!  

Next are a couple of gnomey things (PAD - I had no idea that you and I shared a gnome obsession!)


She sent me one of her 3 gnomes that lived comfortably on a shelf with two brothers.  To prevent him getting lonely, she sent along a photo of his two brothers. Wink


... and to continue the gnome thing:  a "gnote"book, a gnome lightswitch plate and some gnome "gnote" cards made from pinkanddinky's photographs!  


Next are two lovely heart-shape lavender sachets to hang in my closet.  They smell divine!


...and a pair of lovely fabric covered earrings!

(Sorry, at this point, I realized I was taking a ton of photos and started trying to get as much in as possible)


Pinkanddinky makes fabulous reusable cloth pads (she sells them in STS) and I love them!  There are two larger pads and two pantyliners and they're absolutely soft as a baby's bottom.


Vintage linens--yard sale finds (and I'm totally going to start going to yard sales with you.. you have the best luck because these are both gorgeous!)


There are two more vintage linens here (the bottom of the photo), a pen holder for books (clever!) and a green lace sash (I tried to get a good action shot but I couldn't!)

Now comes all of pinkanddinky's amazing embroidery skills. Honestly, I'm stunned by how gorgeous these all are!



i had requested some embroidered handkerchieves for my never-ending allergies and she delivered! These are all really beautiful, soft and too lovely to use!! (Closeups of the the bird here)

Finally, she embroidered two pillowcases for our bedroom.  I love the brown and green she chose and the free hand embroidery is honestly stunning!



I will try to get an action shot once my bedroom is clean and presentable. Smiley

While I was uploading photos, I realized I didn't get a photo of the beautiful linen apple tote I've been using all week to haul around my knitting projects.  I'll get a photo of it tomorrow to share!

Honestly, pinkanddinky, this is an absolutely beautiful swap package!  You are so detailed and meticulous it's obvious you are an artist at heart.  Thank you so much for being a wonderful partner! (And I'll knit for you any day! Wink )

I love all the embroidery, but the gnome stuff is my fave! Those pics are priceless and the Gnome book made me giggle! Cheesy

That pillow is sooo cute. And I am seriously envious of your patience with embroidery P&D! Just lovely!

Good grief, that package is amazing!  I am now officially obsessed with that embroidery of the flowers -- and that frame!  Oh, that frame.

The gnome and photos of his brothers is hilarious, btw.  That tickles me.

Thanks, Lapoli! I'm so glad you like your package.

Here's a pic of the apple tote. It's not the best photo...I just snapped it quickly before putting it in the box.



And here's a couple of other closeups while I'm at it Smiley





Thanks again for being a great swap partner!

Ummmm, how do I wist an entire package? Grin

That is an amazing package - I love the stencilled pillow, the framed embroidery, all the gnome goodies, and the embroidered pillowcases. All of it is soooooo pretty!

What awesome packages!  I love the blue jacket and all that embroidery!

I got to knitting this week and finished a pair of longies for the munchkin out of that beautiful rainbow yarn Faren spun for me.  I hope to get pics in the morning when the sun is out to show them off.  DH says they look like a weather map and that there is a big thunderstorm around her middle!  (But, coming from him, that is definitely a compliment)  I think they are just the cutest things ever!
