My partner recieved on 12/9 and hasn't posted pics and hasn't sent yet, which is my usual luck, so I am a little upset about this. I am waiting to hear from my partner which I hope is very soon.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

There are 5 people who have not sent & it has been 2 weeks past the deadline.  Two have been in touch & three have not.  Regardless, the new Craftster rules are that after two weeks, you automatically get negative feedback, which can be turned into positive once your partner receives.

So, I think I've updated everyone's status.  Please PM me with any issues.

First, I have to apologize to my wonderful partner, Sherrie. She has been such a great partner and I have really dropped the ball this time. I'm sorry I took sooooo long to post pictures; I know you're dying to have everyone see all the amazing things you made!
So withour further ado:  (All weird expressions have no relation to the wonderful crafts involved, just the unphotogenic subject!)
Here is the soft, cozy, beautiful sweater she made me:

It has these great bell-like sleeves:

I am in absolute awe of how perfect the knitting is:

It is so snuggly and warm and soooofffffft. I really love it!
Then she crocheted me this pretty hat which actually FITS my big ol' noggin:

and a fuzzy shot of how perfect her stitches are:

and these pretty purple slippers:

She made me this really cute bag that I didn't get a picture of but here is the fabric- dragonflies! beneath the jewelry she made me:

The necklace:
and bracelet

Both pieces of jewelry are little big, but that is easily modified and then I have some extra pretty turquoise beads!
And then some bonus loot:

A cute calendar, mints, wisps (haha- I love those), gloves, purple postits, a bath bomb that smells yummy, a cute xstitch kit, a nice little sewing kit, a pen from her workplace, and... a really cute camera shy snowman mug that is at work where he will keep my tea hot all winter. Smiley Whew, I think that's it!
I was sooo spoiled- she sent me such an incredible package! Thank you so much, SherrieB! I'm so glad you like your pjs!!!

it's getting a bit ridiculous, honestly. i'm just happy i have internet, as i didn't even have that for about three weeks.

(ps, i'm wearing your skull sweater right now, and my mom keeps saying it's her octopus sweater and i'm just borrowing it. best swap ever.)

Chenille is a strange yarn & I'm very happy you liked everything. Now you know why I was such a pain on the measurments--even tho I still got some of it wrong. Happy Holidays
(I just wanted to see the action shot of the sweater LOL alot of love & stuff (can we say FROGS) went into it

I'm sorry I haven't posted here yet (I could've sworn I replied before, but then again I've lost my mind)  Is it weird that several of the swappers here are my swap partners in the altered puzzle swap? (and the ATC swap)lol


I LOOOOVE everything!  OMG I'm obsessed with glow in the dark and I'm so jealous of that dress!

Just wait til I get pics of the awsome skirts donniesgirl made me, prepare to wist Grin Grin Grin

In the meantime, donniesgirl is super busy with the holidays and figured I'd post the only good pic I got of the swaeter I made her.  I am extremely proud of this, my first adult-sized garment (other than a poncho)  I spent the entire month making it.
