KLKing sent me the most amazing package.  I feel so very very spoiled by it.


I opened the box to find various scraps of leather, feathers, and some peacock cut outs.

Digging deeper I found....

Aaaaah!  A Snaaake!
He's a magnet.  Hee.  And now he protects my fridge from late night invaders.


A bowler hat in the most gorgeous colors.

Which just so happens to perfectly match...

The custom sized, hand painted vest.


And the back is appliqued!




She even included the pattern that she had made!

There was also a folder with the line art for the appliques and instructions for using the muslin.

And last but not least:

An ATC with my initial.

  Grin I'm so happy you liked it! You took such nice pictures too! You know the button on the back of the vest is a joke... You're really not supposed to have it there.. it's just a spare. Hee Hee! Can't wait to see what I'm getting.... K

OMG this stuff is so amazing. I am hitting myself on the head that I missed this swap. Are you ladies planning another one any time soon?  Smiley

I know I would certainly be ready for a round 2 lol. Although after seeing both of those packages, I am not sure if mine measures up. Btw that peacock headband is GORGEOUS!!!!
