I have the tribal costume pattern from Folkwear, but haven't dared start it yet.

Go for it. Gooo foor iiiiiitttt!

If you are too nervous to cut your good material, go buy some $3 a yard filmy stuff in the red tag section of J-A and use that instead.

OMG!! I was really really hoping to see an action shot of it Cheesy I just had this idea in my head that watching a baby gnaw on a fake Flintstones-esque bone would just be funny as. And I think it is.

Okay - here we go. Mobile phone pics, sorry - my camera is in the possession of a Belgian, and currently sited somewhere between here and Canberra.



Scrubbies & a washcloth! I love using these things, and I am soooooooooo lazy about making them for myself.



Oooh - how spoilt am I? A dozen reusable paper towels, snapped together, made out of awesome flannel. I squeed a little upon spying these. They're gonna get so much use!


This is a sandwich wrap, and a lunch bag. The lunch bag is especially inspired - I can put any size container into it, and the pull up the drawstrings to carry it.


See? Awesome!!

Taniquel is a fantastic partner, and I have been well-spoilt - thank you so much!!!!

Here are the pics of the stunning package I got from our talented swap organiser. Everything is so beautifully crafted! And she got my taste down to a tee! The colours and fabrics are all just perfect for me!

Here is the gift bag , the shopping bag and the wash cloth. Look at the beautiful fabrics, including the linings!

These are the fabric napkins, with the knitted wire napkin rings (that sounds incredibly difficult!), a pretty embroidered and beaded jug cover and the cute card that came with everything.

Close ups of the label inside the shopping bag aqnd the back of the card. How cute are they?!
Thank you so much Kaz!! And thank you for organizing a terrific swap!

Kitten Wrangler - I love the scrubbies and that lunch bag is awesome!

Craftrica - yaaaaaaay, I'm so glad it arrived and that you like everything!  Smiley The tree bag should be able to carry a lot - I double seamed it on both the lining and the outer fabric, so it should be pretty sturdy!)  And the knitting with wire was easier than I thought - trick is getting a flexible wire!

I received from lydiaharper just a few minutes ago.  I will post pictures later tonight or in the morning.  Right now, it's all dim, gloomy, and rainy with sleet expected later.  I want to take good pictures in good light.

Lydia's swap box of treats for me is so dear, so precious, so well thought out and well crafted --- I am deeply touched by her kindness and generosity.  It is a PERFECTLY me box.  There's no way she could've made it better.  (OK, yeah, well, she didn't send me Tory Belleci, but, hey...) 

She sent seed tapes for when I plant my garden (perfect combination of practical and charming - great idea), reusable cloth/fleece pads (3) and pantyliners (3) (I had sooooooo been hoping to receive some of these) and an upcycled wool wetbag (how you managed to put a zipper into that fabric is beyond me!), 2 reusable bowl covers (which I was really, really hoping for) made out of adorable fabric, 2 rice socks (I actually let out a moan of pleasure when I pulled these from the box.  They are being used this afternoon as I have a migraine.  They are the perfect size to lay on my eyes, cheeks, or forehead.), a BIG bag of LOTS of denim scraps (something I hoard like a squirrel hoards acorns), 3 cooling racks for bread and cookies which are directly from my wist (she was able to find them at her local Goodwill!  Yeah, thrift shops!), and 2 reusable snack bags to carry in my purse which is something I have been wanting to help me fight the fastfood tempation when I'm out running errands (trying to save money and lose weight).  See what I mean by great package?  These items are EXACTLY what I could've hoped for and then some because they are very useful things to me, crafted with great skill, and done with charming, thrifty supplies that make them cute while practical.  I have a substantial vocabulary and am, supposedly, a writer, but I cannot pick out adequate words to convey how precisely, exactly, genuinely perfect this box of items is specifically for me.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

It was also perfectly timed as I am having a tearful, frustrated day from back pain that restricts my movement and a sinus/allergy triggered migraine.  (Aura, dizziness, the whole bit.)  Receiving today was perfect timing to bring me a smile in the midst of tears.

Brace yourselves for when I post pictures.  The wonderfulness of my goodies from lydiaharper will melt your hearts and fill your wists. 

Thank you, Lydia.  From the bottom of my heart.  This is more than a swap box of items.  This is a gift to my soul.  I'm struggling to find a new, healthier (both physically and emotionally) path to walk, and these items are tangible bits of encouragement.  Thank you, dear Lydia.  I so wish I could give you a big, snuggly bearhug.

Aiki!   You are so very welcome!  And thank you so much for the very kind words.  I am so glad my crafting could brighten your day.  This really makes me extremely happy....It is really a great thing to craft for someone so appreciative.

Lydia
