Get your wisting fingers ready girls.  I have received and magsb80 is just too good to be true.  This was her first crafster swap, if you see her in another, grab hold with two hands, she is a keeper.  Wink  Thanks Magdalena for a package of awesomeness, I love everything!
Firstly, check out the cool doodles decorating the box (these are only a selection)


(how very true as you will soon see)

First out of the box was this little fella.  My son Will grabbed him and has only just let go, 3 hours later.

You might recognise his cousin from  here
He came in his own little drawstring bag, which will be very useful for other bits and bobs.

I love, love, love this Alexander Henry fabric and was so close to buying some to use in this swap too.  What great taste you have magsb80!
Everything else was beautifully wrapped in paper, decorated with feathers, and flowers, or these cute little owl printed brown paper bags.

Everything else you say?  Yep.  check it out.
This is where my first camera went flat and I swapped to another without realising there was a big slodge on the lens, so the next few pics have a splodge, please try hard to ignore it.

How about this awesome lined bag, with a zippered pocket inside. Envious? Ha! You should be.

More AH fabric in this cute little zippered pouch, and btw did you notice the cutest cute little tags magsb80 put on everything?  I did.

A pattern for the sock owls I have wisted from craft schmaft.  Can't wait to have a go at this.

A cute owl embroidered on a tea-towel.  He would almost make drying dishes fun.  Yeah, I said almost, who likes drying dishes?  Anyway, he is too spesh to get wet.  He can just hang out in the kitchen making wise owly comments.

Yep, still going can you believe it?

More AH, this time in the form of a tissue holder.  Man-o-man I am fit to burst.
And lucky last, with unfortunately a photo that does not go close to doing it justice, the apron I requested at the top of my list.  Magsb80 I love it, please, please please if you took a photo can you post it as this photo is not doing justice to the thing of beauty and function you have made for me. It is reversible and just truly too perfect.

Magdalena, thank you and thank you again for being an awesome partner.  You have made me the happiest little owlina and your package came at the end of a blerchy day teaching and really bucked me up.  Thank you.

Magsb80 I love it, please, please please if you took a photo can you post it as this photo is not doing justice to the thing of beauty and function you have made for me. It is reversible and just truly too perfect.

Sadly my photos of the apron aren't much better (awkward thing to photograph - especially late at night!), but here's a couple.


close up of the pocket on the front


Also, in your camera change over you must have forgotten to take photos of 2 other items... the owl pin cushion and a 3 pack of scented drawer sachets.  So I've added photos here for you.



So glad you like your goodies spectrumsparksie!

Thanks magsb80.  they are def better than mine.
I am so sorry about the lack in posting the other two items of awesomeness.  The drawer sachets are beautiful and smell divine.  And the little owl pin cushion?  isn't he the best?  And magsb80 didn't even show the cute little decorated box she made for him.  Too good.
Thanks again for being just the best magsb80.

Those are adorable, I love the presentation of the sachets too. Markettably good! The apron is pure genius with the pairing of those gorgeous fabrics, pom poms, applique. Sweet.
