Pasties?! AHAHAHAHA! I love it. I would have loved to do a burlesque theme for someone. I did enjoy edoing the spring theme, though, don't worry Slingmomma. Man, I feel worse and worse about my choice of themes with each new MYB I see. I'm a loser.

Another round?! Not yet, I'm not ready! Maybe after my MAF swap is over with...

I am so so glad you liked everything. Phew. The wool can by dyed the green or yellow you want with food colouring. I tried finding coloured pure wool but they didnt have it in the amount needed (thats 400g of wool there people)
The ruffly scarf kind of reminded me of a feather boa  Grin and that "love" shirt almost made me cry. It took me ages to work out how to get it to look right (yes, I free handed it, only a smart person would make a stencil of the original  Roll Eyes )

Ok, Im up for another round  Grin (ps, theres a crochet vs knitters swap going on now if any ones keen...)

If any KNITTERS are keen. I think we're still short on their side a bit.

I received from baa-me-chick today! I had loads of fun unwrapping everything, especially since the lost parcel that I sent to her (the one that went to the Netherlands for some obscure reason only sorting computers can fathom) arrived in Scotland yesterday! Yay! So I didn't have to feel guilty and was free to appreciate all the nice stuff that she sent. She went with two of my themes, Britain and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You cannot go wrong with either of them, really... just walking into a store with touristy British items and picking things randomly will (almost) do  Grin ... and who can resist Buffy and her gang!

Anyway, here goes:

Everything in the box. She's even got a crafty swap lady business card!


The ball, the two patterns (one for the handspun used for the magic yarn ball, the other one for the other yummi yarn) and some extra yarn.


Closeup of the barn - LOVE the handspun! - with a pretty tartan ribbon


All the goodies from left to right: two nice balls of brown soft merino, some shortbread and Yorkshire boiled sweets, the British/Scottish good stuff (keychains, Edinburgh castle coaster, tartan ribbon, iron on Scottie (yay), a funky green pen on a stand with a little highland cow on top, two cute Westhighland White Terrier buttons, a bracelet with shrinky charms, handmade soaps with thistle and celtic knot pattern, a ... mystery item with a shrinky charm of a highland cow), Buffy goodies (fridge magnets with pictures, crochet and knitting stitch markers that spell B U F F Y and S L A Y E R, a little blank book "Buffy forever"  Cheesy), the two balls of yarn for the two patterns (a cowl pattern for the handspun, a scarflette crochet pattern for the mirage yarn)


Some closeups:

mystery item (shawl closure thingie?)


stitch markers:


very cool British bracelet:


fridge magnets:


notebook:


handmade soaps:


closeup of the yarn for the crochet pattern:


Thanks baa-me-chick - I loved your MYB package!! I hope you'll have fun unpacking, too (last I heard she waited for a new camera before unwinding the ball.. )!

Sarantha, I'm pretty sure your "mystery item" is a book mark. You got some good loot!

It's official, we need an angel. I -just- got to my destination after a long day of dealing with airlines. A 2.5 hour flight turned into 8 hours on a very crowded plane. Jexican offered to angel first, so unless she can't manage it, it's her's. I'll send the info out tomorrow after I get some rest..

There was also a little wind-up chicken, a frog plant marker, a pencil topped with a sheep, stickers with sheep, some pretty handyed roving, a totebag with sheep on it & a little stuffed sheep. Ooh, and some pretty wooden buttons Grin

Sarantha's daughter made me a pretty bookmark with fimo beads on it............. Grin Thankyou Jljiana Kiss

The yarn is so soft & is for either a crochet shawl or a pair of crochet socks. I'm still deciding.............. Undecided

I went to HL today and I got what I think will be all I need to finish the angel package! I just finished the big thing I've been working on (with lots of little pieces) and when I finished the outside part my husband told me basically "Wow, that doesn't suck as much as I thought it would." Oh, gee, thanks honey!
