Please remember to PM me with the DC code of the packages you send and let me know when you receive, as well!


ETA: Right, I previously told those in donniesgirl's group to PM her the details, but I've realized that she can't edit the list.  So anyone in her list, can you please PM us both?  (Sorry for the confusion - my excuse is that I've just spent two hours with 80 screaming teenage girls at a moon bounce place!)

My fantastic package from cjclark!! I am so ridiculously thrilled with my package, it is unbelievable!!
A large flat rate box absolutely stuffed!

Lenny(this is for my daughter, will have to post action shots later because she is at gramma’s all weekend. Lol... it may be in my bed when she gets back!)

Wool dryer balls(yaya!!) this was my number 1 hope for this swap

Lots of handerchiefs(my other big wish) some homemade, some beautiful vintage!

A set of 4 cloth napkins(much better/bigger than the ones I made)

I love kits!! And I got a few!
First, pattern and bandannas for pants for my daughter(from my wist)

Tons of stitch cards with animals(going to put these away for a little longer, because I think in a few months or so these will be an awesome activity for me and Lily-Anne!

Laundry soap kit(enough for 2 batches!) yaya!!!!

Lots of cotton yarn(excellent, I’ve been getting into crocheting with cotton yarn lately!!) and thread because I was telling her the other day I had none!

Lots of tshirt yarn

A lighted crochet hook(this is when I started to cry happy tears!)

Crochet books, and magazines, none that I have already!!

Pattern for Whimsey Mae dolls, and felt for their hair

And a book she got sent here from her bookswap!


Thank you so much Chris! I couldn’t have gotten someone that would have gotten me better, and you made me feel so blessed!
I hope you like your package from me even half as much as I loved this! You literally made me sprout tears!!

Aw shucks....  Roll Eyes

I'm glad you liked it all. It was fun to put together and you were easy  for me to craft for. And the bandana pants were on your wist? I had that page bookmarked just for general info (like to make some for my nephew this summer) and I had bandanas in our Goodwill box. And I thought.. oh, Pixieval said she likes to make things for her daughter. Bingo!

Anyway.. glad it got there, glad you like it! It was fun to make! I would've made more but I couldn't fit anything else into the box!

I made the dryer balls from reclaimed wool sweater yarn. I looked through my husbands sweaters, found one that wasn't even his size and asked if I could tear it up. He said fine. I asked later how long he had had it.

It was from Junior High. My husband will be 40 in August. So, that tan yarn in those dryer balls is vintage! Of course, it was also barely sock weight and brittle as all get out, so I finally bought some new yarn to hold it all together better. I made a set of us as well. I kind of liked how both yarns showed.
