I received from spotnik today too.  What a great package!  Thanks you so much.  My yarn stash was pretty sad but this package just made it fantastic. 

You did manage to stuff every inch of the large flat rate box. 

She sent me yarn and what great yarn!  It's all really nice blends of wools, rayons, and cottons.  I love the colors...lots of natural and earthy tones. 
Here it all is...

These are some of my favorites. 
These viscose and rayon hand dyed in Nepal.  The viscose has an interesting texture that will be fun to play with.

These are amazingly soft wool blend and the colors are fantastic.  I just want to stroke them.

I am SO glad you like everything.  Really, I have had so much fun with this swap.  I am sure the PO hates me, all that weight in the flat rate boxes.  LOL!

Anything crafty goes...

OMG those yarns are gorgeous! I can't buy anything like that here!

Wow. Amazing yarn. I can't get anything like that here either.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

Whoa!  Why have I not seen this gallery until now?!?  These packages are amazing!  What a bunch of lucky "needers" and generous "givers!"  I'm kind of coveting all that beautiful yarn and I don't knit or crochet.  And the buttons?!  *drool*

I received a few days ago from zilamonster and it came on a day when I was feeling so ill and to get all this stuff cheered me up so much and I am amazed at how generous zilamonster was, to send such a heavy loaded box overseas, it's so kind and much appreciated- so thank you so much!  Kiss

So here are all the goodies:

And some close ups of the paper stuff including some sticky back mat stacks, which I don't think we can get over here and a HUGE stack of Christmas scrapbook paper which will be put to use immediately for scrapbooking and Xmas crafting!  Smiley

I also got a book on buttons, which is so useful because I have a lot of vintage buttons and just flicking through this I have seen many that I recognise already! Also some photo corners, sticky tape and my first ever rubber stamps which I love so much and have been stamping a ton of papers to use as backgrounds already!

And now the fabrics which are all so 'me' and they are all really big pieces and have replenished my dwindling stash nicely, and will be used to make Christmas gifts with I think. I love them all so much and was so excited to get some Amy Butler fabric! I've never had such nice fabrics before!  Grin

And some thumbnail close ups (my favourite is the one with the mushrooms and fairies!)

Thank you so much zilamonster I love everything so much! You are so lovely and generous! Smiley
