Received this great parcel from lilyella this morning.
It's the first time she's participated in a swap on Craftster and she did herself proud.
I LOVED the parcel.

First, groups shot

Here's what it consisted of:
beautiful wicker lined gathering basket
clever string holder
pretty gardening journal
embroidered lavender sachet
beautiful pear fabric gardening apron
3 packets of lavender seeds
and two chew bones for my dogs - Amy and Spike!

Here are the pics:

What a great parcel - it will all be well used!

Have to post these two pics too, of Amy enjoying her yellow bone and Spike the crumbs of his red one (he's a messy eater)


Thanks so much - woof woof from the dogs  Grin

Oh that is a fantastic first package to start with which to start off the gallery!

Fantastic job, lilyella, and oooh holistic knitter, you'd so lucky!  I love that pear fabric.

Great job, lilyella! The sachet is adorable- your stitching is so even! I'm jealous!

And I love the string storage! I need something like that for yarn when I'm knitting. I guess I could buy one, but I like yours so much better!

 the string holder is a good idea. My mom always is looking for string for the tomatoes LOL she used that curling ribbon one year she could not find her string...I love the lavender embroidery too so nice!

Pink flamingos, palm trees, flip flops, and living at the beach... Can life get better?

Thank you both  Smiley

A string holder is one of those items you never think you'll need until you start a job and cant put your hand on it!!  Cheesy

Great start to the gallery.  Very nice package!


Dangerously clever and resourceful.

I received a GREAT box from torilimcadle today!!!  It is full of prettiness!

I'll post pics tomorrow night (weather permitting) as I need a full light - dark cycle of hours in order to show the pure awesomeness of one of the items!  (My brave crafty partner has wiring skills!  Wow!)

THANK YOU, Tori!  Big smiles and laughter as I dug into my box.  I was so excited that I couldn't wait until I got home after going to 2 grocery stores so I opened it up in the p.o.  The post office ladies were ooooooo'ing and aaaaaaah'ing in wonderment over the big item!  Smiley
