What a great package so far, I love the ornaments and the colors/buttons on the stocking!  Can't wait to see the rest of the package!

I don't know, I may regret saying this later, but shouldn't we wait until closer to Christmas to open the packages?   Undecided Undecided Roll Eyes

No way!!  Don't we all want to be able to decorate for the holidays with the gifties and such in there?  I know I do, so I'll be tearing into everything straight away when it gets here.

Looks like I'm not the only one tapping into the button stash Wink  Great work, Troublet, I love it!

Well, as kooky as it sounds--this IS a CHRISTMAS stocking swap, after all--but if sezouli chose to make any items for my husband or kids, they will be used for us to celebrate Hanukkah...and that's December 1st!  Grin

(We celebrate both.)

We leave it up to each swapper whether or not to wait, but I tell you now, I CAN'T! I try to make the manflesh tell me everything he gets me before Christmas, and generally I succeed  Tongue

I'm gonna try to wait cause last year I got screwed and didnt get anything in my stocking.... I am going to mark the stuff for my partner to open that is seasonal so she can enjoy it before Christmas... and if she chooses to open the rest then that is her choice....tee hee .... that's a joke since she'll NEVER be able to resist all those goodies poking out of the stocking!!

I was so lucky to meet up with sloth003 for coffee today, and to be completely spoiled by her!

First up, she made me a stocking that is designed to be taken apart again, it has loads of charms, ribbons, buttons, etc., for me to use in my crafting:




And a close-up of my favourite, the tree buttons:



Then, presents for the rest of the family.  A gorgeous rainbow dog pillow for my 7 year old:



A lovely embroidered sea life banner for my 1 year old's room:





And some groovy portal inspired coasters for my DH:



Next was this bag:



Which contained needlefelting supplies.  And there was another huge bag of multicoloured roving too:



Then there were some lovely christmas stickers and notecards:



A sunprinting kit:



Some ribbons, threads, and sequins, which will be put to good use:



An adorable pirate bag:



A sunprinted pencil case, which I love:



Even moreso for the goodies inside (the chocolates are from a friend of sloth's who runs a chocolate shop):



Fabric covered notebooks:



A magnetic vase, some chutney, a "lifesavers" stack of candles, some tissues, and a toothbrush for when I am done with the goodies:



A beautiful embroidery to illustrate "sometimes there was a storm in her brain" -- which describes me to a T Cheesy :



And lastly, two sets of double sided placemats, which all together cover fall:



winter:



spring:



and summer:



I'm sure I missed some of the fabric bags too, in the photos.  I was trying to finish taking the photos before naptime was over  Cheesy

Thank you so much sloth003, for everything.  We love it all, and it was so fun getting to chat with you Smiley

What a great package!


I'm starting to really feel anxiety about my package not being good enough.  It's nowhere near these Sad  Anyone mind if I ask what size stockings you both decided on?  My partner and I are doing small....if these are small I am going to have to craft like crazy.
