My wonderful parcel from MiLady arrived today Grin So I guess I'm starting the gallery off.

Everything:


first, the mug with it's cozy:

I couldn't get a picture that did it justice, it's so fantastic


Pretty apron:

and close up on the detail:


The mysterious F--- F-- :

Tomorrow I'll get an action shot, because this scarf is so glamourous, and goes wonderfully with my coat. I wore it to work and felt a bit too posh, even with my wellies on!

I realised while crafting for this swap that I'm in need of a pin cushion. Unknowingly, MiLady has sent me The World's Greatest Pin Cushion!!!

This little crochet froggy has a trick up his sleeve - he's not just your standard pincushion, happy to sit on the table and wait.....


he's a wrist rider!

I love him Grin

the needle in his mouth is held in magnetically Cool

Non-crafted bits:

Hot chocolate, coffee, marshmallows, chocolate, extra crafty flowers, cute teenie tiny grater with the hot choc, and coffee art stencil!

I'm so over the moon with my parcel! Grin Grin Thank you MiLady!

Even more incredible, everything I made for this swap was destashed, the only material I purchased was infact the mysterious F--- F--!! I actually made one of them for myself and I use it every day, I feel so glamorous.

The pretty fabric for the apron was previously my bed sheets while I was at university, I still have miles of this stuff left and plan on making more pretty things with it!

I'm glad you liked everything Mrs Cosmopilite, I thoroughly enjoyed crafting for you and it managed to cheer me up after my horrible festive season.  Grin

If anyone wants to make that pin cushion I take absolutely no credit for it, I found a wonderful tutorial online by Roman Sock. It takes minimal materials and it took me about an hour or so to make from start to finish.

The link is here: http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/2008/04/frog-pincushi-1.html
