I received from Craftylittlemonkey today and I can't imagine a better package! I think she must have invaded my subconscious for what I'd find ideal.
Here's everything together:

She made a pillowcase, an embroidered bird hanging, a little travel kleenex cozy, a set of lovely bird cards, and an applique. Also included: 3 adorable books, a sketchbook, some little birdy stickers, a cute comic, a super cool book of cardboard animals, and a nifty article that shows how to make birds out of crepe paper!

A close up of the bird hanging. I had wisted a neat owl hanging she'd done in the past, so I love this. Especially the colors.

I love the books, I've been trying to grab a unique variety of used books the newborn, so books are super exciting to me now. I can't wait to read the Fletcher one!
Finally,I was already blown away when I saw this, the most gorgeous pillowcase ever, in my favorite colors:

The black is velvety and the rest is shimmery.

I could go on and on about how perfectly suited everything is to me but I'll stop, thank you so much Crafty for a wonderful first swap!


Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

Oh, I'm SO glad you like everything! I was actually quite nervous about this package, I just wasn't sure if it was right for you. I'm thrilled you like the pillow case, it was the thing I struggled with sewing at the end and almost left out altogether but it was in your colours so... And the hanging, it took some time but ended up looking so simple and almost plain. I figure that it's kind of interesting that you have to really lean in and look at it to get all the detail though. Give it a press, it will look so much better flattened out and it's been ironed already so it's ok for heat. Do you all recognize it? It's based off a card in the first round that I thought was darling.
All three of those books are adorable stories, I just happened to have them in my stash and then this swap came up, how funny is that?
Yay! *Happy swapper*

Oh my gosh, I totally had that Fletcher book when I was a little girl - I had completely forgotten about it until now!

What an amazing gallery so far!  Smiley
