Thanks! 

The scarf is actually a knitty pattern from a while back: Marley's Ghost.  It was my first felting project, and I kept wishing that I'd had something like that to play with as a kid, since it seems like it would make a fantastic toy.  Smiley

Okay ladies, get your wisting fingers ready because sweetyetevil totally sent me an absolutely amazing package.  I totally got spoiled!!

First of all, it came wrapped in very pretty gold wrapping:




And the cute card: (for those who can't read it it says "Keep calm and Have a Cupcake"





Some beautiful jewelry!  OMG totally a surprise. Cheesy  I love the colors and as soon as I can get my mom here, I'll get an action shot.  GORGEOUS!!!



And finally, the wall art that I put up immediately where I can look up and see it as I sit on my couch.  It totally matches my living room PERFECTLY!  The tree and the yellow/green/blue parts are made of clay on painted canvas.  I love the use of clay on the canvas - totally original and unexpected and it looks amazing.   I'm all bouncey and just keep looking at it and grinning like an idiot.  The depth of the colors is amazing and just an all around SQUEE.





THANK YOU, sweetyetevil!  You are AWESOME!  I adore everything!!!

Okay I am loving the bird painting, ceramic pieces (I am so jealous as I still have not used my kiln yet...), the felt/sewn letters (those must have taken forever!) and the cute felted chain scarf....everything looks so great!

got my pkg, and funthreads completely spoiled me!!
I am in awe of her skills~

Here is everything in the wrapping (felt like my bday!):


and here are the goodies!
First, we have a great box bag for me to keep a knitting project when I'm on the go:

oh, and she put fabric inside for future crafting!  bonus   Grin
upon further unpacking, these are actually 3 reusable shopping totes
that fold up into little squares!!!!
squeeeee!!  Carol really understands my bag fetish   Grin


Next, a cute lil birdie zip pouch:


Third, a neat wall hanging (love the zipper detail!):


And finally, the piece de resistance:

a gorgeous wall hanging that is just SO creative & beautiful!  Even has my & my dh's initials on the
tree trunk Smiley

and on the back ---
a great memento of this fantastic swap:


Any one of these items would have made my day, but all FOUR  SEVEN Huh?
Oh my stars!!
I have been in shock (in a nice way Smiley ever since I opened the box!
I cannot begin to thank you enough, Carol!
Please know how much everything is loved, and if you have better pics, feel free to post!
