I received yesterday from Lellibo! I was so excited to see the package from Royal Mail  Smiley
For me, she made two sets of wrist cuffs-just what I wanted and perfect for Southern California fall & winter weather. It is never cold enough for full gloves or mittens, but I have poor circulation in my hands & feet, so these should be great for keeping me nice and warm while still having use of my fingers. And the color choice was perfect-note my nail polish I had just put on that morning before receiving the package. Obviously, I like the colors she chose  Grin

For my boys, she made two very cute robots. They loved them and both slept with them last night. Huck is holding them in the picture (he has been Luigi for the past 3 days-my husband made the hat), because Milo was being moody when I wanted to take pictures, but Milo does love it and he likes to move the arms and legs and say, "Wo-bot, wo-bot, wo-bot" in a mechanical voice.

She also sent me some Smarties from England, which are very different from Smarties in the US. I hadn't tried them before, but it is interesting-I lived in England many years ago when I was a teenager, and as soon as I ate one of the chocolate Smarties, it snapped me back to being 15. I can't describe it, but English chocolate has a taste that is distinctive from American chocolate. Amazing how certain flavors and smells can jog your memory like that!

Anyway, thank you, Lelliebo! I loves the package and had so much fun doing this swap!
And thank you pixieval and klum78 for hosting!

Everyone prepare to be blown away, because my package is amazing! My partner put so much thought and detail into everything and I couldn't be happier. Here are the pictures!


I asked for a sock monkey in my questionairre, and she made me something even better! You should have seen the look on my face when I pulled this out of the box. Sock kitty!!



I also got this absolutely adorable felt monster. I love all of the details (like the mushroom fabric in the ears, the cute buttons, the bow, just everything about it).



And a crochet hook holder! I needed one of these so badly, I'm always losing my hooks.  Grin I love the deer and mushroom on the front! Sooo cute.


Here's a photo of the inside. I can't get over the fabric! It has a bunch of my favorite things on it.  Owls, bunnies, foxes, deer, mushrooms, and acorns. I have a thing for woodland creatures. I wanted to show the little notes she put in it. They're just too awesome.


Ahhh, I'm just so happy. I love my stuff. Thank you soooo much hanshotfirst! You are amazing. <3
I'd also like to thank our organizers for putting this swap together! You guys rock!

I *think* my package has arrived, but I'm not home so I can't get it from the post office. I'll get it on Tuesday if my fianc doesn't figure out where my passport is so he can get it earlier.

I received a couple of days ago, but was just able to take photos last night.

I got an AMAZING pair of knitted slippers that are the *perfect* colour for me.


As I opened the package my husband said they were very me Smiley

Here are a couple of views of them being modeled by my lovely husband.



I also got some adorable crochet flowers (the photos were blurry so I am not putting them up) and I got a tape measure covered in Swedish colours.  I totally needed another sewing tape measure so this is perfect.


A couple of other Swedish extras were a postcard of a basket of mushrooms (Annchen says her mom likes to go collecting mushrooms) and  a postcard with a recipe for egg cheese which I am going to try and make this winter.


And finally some Swedish licorice candy.


It was a great package.  thanks so much Annchen!!!

Everything looks so awesome. I sent my package today. It took me so much longer to finish than I figured it would.
