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.
... 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.
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!
