I received from aethelberga yesterday and I have to say that it just made me laugh and I love it! She chose the Tudors from my choices.
So here she is - Anne Boleyn before and after losing her head!




Thanks so much aethelberga - she just makes me giggle every time I look at her. Thanks for swapping with me and for hosting this one!! Smiley

Sorry for the double post but I received my package! Ruby sent me a pouch which she made with the nalbinding technique. it's a bit bigger than OTT, but I guess we can get past that Wink She dyed the yarn herself!!! This is from one of my other favourite periods, the Viking-era. Ruby knows me quite well Wink I love the autumn-like colours, they are perfect!!!
Thank you so much!!!

How cool! I love how you did all the different colours, Ruby. Did you use natural dyes?

The three shades of green are from a red-leafed kind of maple that grows next door, and the two shades of yellow are nettle (which surprisingly didn't grow next door and taught me quite the lesson about plants shooting you full of histamin when you want to be too cool for gloves Grin). This is definitely my most favourite nalbinding piece, I started at the bottom, and then just followed the shades of the colors with the decreases and increases, so the pouch got bigger when the colors were lighter, and vice versa, like the colors were stretched over a bigger surface... I have made this for seneris a while ago because we always wanted to swap and never got around to, and recreated it once, but this is the original, and I had it on my crafting desk just to look at it for a long time. And just when I put it into the basket with the nalbinding, we get to swap for real! It always felt like it didn't belong to me, so I'm happy I could finally give it to the rightful owner Grin
And I didn't spin the yarn myself, I bought it handspun and dyed it then.
Don't currently remember the stitch... probably something over three loops...

And... I also received today! seneris embroidered a needlebook for me, and I love it so much! Not only is the embroidery awesome, and way beyond anything I could do, but also is the pattern not only original medieval, but also reminds me of celtic weaving patterns, so it covers two of my most favourite periods!

So pretty! Stitched on both sides, and lined on the inside!

Hemmed with a braided trim. The funny thing is I decided to braid the strap for her pouch too, although I usually never do that.

Thanks you, seneris!

Here's my pretty little tiny thing from rhapsody, which is a coin purse inspired by Victorian crazy quilting designs. The detail on it with the embroidery and beading is amazing!


The other side is just as impressive, and different again. She told me the buttons were her grandmother's, and vintage from the late 19th/early 20th Century.


It even came wrapped as a fancy package, with coordinating ribbons. That scrap of green is a bit of the tissue paper it was wrapped with. I felt so privileged to be receiving it!


Thanks rhapsody, it's gorgeous!
