Get ready to be jealous, guys--here is my amazing package from rabid.dustbunny!

An ADORABLE embroidery of a happy artichoke--even an artichoke has a heart! The stitching is beautiful on this!
I'm putting it up in my craft room ASAP.


Two great little pillows decorated with the paintings in Amelie's bedroom!


A absolutely delightful little handsewn gnomie-friend--you can see how happy we are together! I love this little guy.


Some blue arrows to follow and a nice little embroidered scented sachet (Dustbunny, what's in this? It smells yummy!)


Some non-crafted paper-goods--a gorgeous little notebook, some bits of a Parisian map, and a poster from the movie!


And the whole package together:


It's all so perfect! Aren't I a lucky girl?
Thanks so much again, rabid.dustbunny! You were a joy to swap with!

And thanks to shylittlegoddess for organizing, this was such a fun first swap for me!

QP, we had fun, didn't we? I'm so excited that it got there, and so quickly, and you liked it!

Hey, one thing... there should be a little square package in there too... a keychain.  I better check down in my sofa too, but I'm pretty sure it's in that box.

Hee-hee! That sachet is actually birdseed - remember, one of the arrows was bird seed and the pigeons were eating it?  I think maybe I have seen this movie too many times...

*sigh* now I can relax, and clean up the mess I made... there are little bits of felt debris all over for some reason.

rabid.dustbunny, I love your embroidery! That's one of the best quotes from the movie! Great pillows too? Were those iron on transfers or printable fabric? The colors look so rich!

By the way, guys, I put up my gnome paintings in the "More Art, Less Craft" board if anyone's interested in seeing them a bit more close up! Here's the link:

Rabid.dustbunny--
Haha, I should have known it was birdseed! Here I was, thinking it was a nice earthy potpourri, or something! I'm going to put it on the ground in the shape of an arrow once it gets a tad warmer here, and watch as the birdies peck at it!

I haven't gotten rid of any of the packaging yet, and I just went through the box again, and saw no keychain--huh! I hope it's at your house, otherwise I'd have no clue where it was! I checked the area where I opened your package too--didn't fling it anywhere in my excitement, thought I wouldn't put it past myself!
Anyway, keychain or not, I adored this package!

Thank you for the compliments, much appreciated - I really wanted these projects to be "right".  I would totally do another Amelie swap someday. So many inspirarations!  And I had such a good partner  :')

I Sew Cute - The pillows are iron-on transfers white fabric.  It was one of those projects that didn't work the way planned, but turned out probably better than the original plan - hah-hah!

Thanks rabid.dustbunny for letting me know about the transfers. It's been awhile since I played with those & your pillows look fantastic! It's given me ideas...maybe for the tudor swap I'm doing now!  Wink
