Wow. Okay. So... the AMAZING superhooker agreed to be my replacement partner for this swap. Since we only live an hour apart, she invited me over to swap packages... So, yesterday we met up. Not only is she a super-talented crafter, but she's also one of the coolest people ever. Seriously. I love her and her family and want them to adopt me.
First off, she made me the cutest cupcake pincushion! I adore this thing! The pins look like sprinkles and the colors are wonderful!!!
Then, she stenciled me two t-shirts. They are totally my colors and very me. They read "bookish" and "reader". I just took a close-up picture of the stenciling... I'm sure you all know what a t-shirt looks like.
She knitted me this owl out of the Harry Potter knitting book. I've named him Hedwig (yes, I'm very original) and I can't stop snuggling him. He makes me giggle.
If that wasn't enough, she did a side trade with the talented AsphaltQueen, because she really wanted to get me Steampunk jewelry. And good lord did she get some good stuff for me!! First- two pendants. The owl is great, but the shift lock key is my favorite. I put it on immediately and am wearing it again today.
I also got a cool broach and a ring (which I'm also wearing today).
superhooker also bought me the Craftster craft book, a really neat notebook, and two Dutch thimbles for my thimble collection. Not only that, but she took the time to teach me the basic crochet stitches! And that's not all. Seriously- check this thing out. Seriously.
Yeah. I told you- she's f*n AMAZING!
Thanks again, superhooker... For a great swap, a great package, and the most fun I've had in ages. You rock!
