I received from SevsOnlyGirl today! She and her daughter made a FANTASTIC package for me! First up, two great t-shirts- anything wearable is always welcome- since having a kiddo I rarely take time to shop for myself!

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (one of my favorite songs, if not my all time favorite- so hard to pick just one!)
And Paul's PETA shirt- I love Paul!

And the rest of the package-

SevsOnlyGirl's daughter made the fantastic hippie Beatles embroidery! The stitches are so perfect- she must have a good teacher  Wink! I can't decide if I want to re-hoop it for my hoopla wall or make a pillow with it- it's so perfect!

The other goodies are Hershey's chocolate bars- rumored to be Paul's Favorite, and Jelly Beans, SevsOnlyGirl said in her note that the Beatles said that they were their favorite candy, but regretted that later as they were pelted by them at concerts!

And because everyone loves a cat action shot, here's my Suds checking out the hippie rubber duck! (and also the culprit of any stray white furs that may have slipped past my inspection in your package SevsOnlyGirl Wink)


Thank you so much again for a fun swap! I love everything!

I'm so glad you like it all!  Katelyn picked up embroidery on her own, I'm awful at it! Cheesy  I gave her books and materials and off she went. Smiley

I'm making two more of the weeping guitar shirts, we loved the graphic so much!

Beautiful kitty, what kind is she?

I can totally see why you'd need to make a couple more of those shirts! I love it!

And thanks for the kitty compliment! She's just a mutt- our vet said she's got some Siamese in her because of the blue eyes. You can't see in the pic, but her legs, ears, and poofy tail are all gray. She's about 7 now , and has been the friendliest cat I've ever owned  Smiley

They are really warm, I've worn them already.

My package from Trix was truly wonderful for not only myself, but my kitty too!

First, a fairly good sized Yellow Submarine (crocheted/knitted?). Also seen in this picture is a 'Strawberry Fields' inspired cat toy (catnip inside).



To accompany the other toy, a black and grey octopus (Octopus' Garden style) cat toy, also filled with cat nip. This one was not included in the previous picture because of this:



See how she is making the 'NYAHH' tongue-out face? No close ups of this one, but I can assure you, it was lovely.

The aftermath:



Stoned, paranoid kitty (octopus to the side).

There was also some little candies. Thanks again for the lovely package!

Ok, I'm really sorry it took so long to post photos from my fantastic package from teachart!  I had to force Katelyn to give everything back to me so I could take pictures - she was so darned excited! Cheesy

First up the coasters inspired by my wist - how cute are they?!


Katelyn's fave Beatle is John, so this hoopla went over REALLY well!


Great postcards and a pin - you must have an amazing stash!!


A journal with a Beatles cover


TWO magazines, they've been read cover to cover a couple of times already.lol


A fantastic Beatles book, the front:


...and the big surprise - the back of the book - Katelyn has this picture as a poster in her room, it's her favorite, she freaked out!lol



Thank you so much, teachart!!

I received from Pixiefirefly today.

Here is my awesome package.

First a really cute wooden box and a hoopla with an image from Yellow Submarine on it. I love the hoop and can't wait to hang it. It's my second Craftster hoop Smiley



Here is a pic so you can see the box opens......



Here is a set of six Beatles magnets. I love these and already have them on my fridge.



She also sent some great extras.....a yellow submarine key chain, a beatles/apple sticker, a great patch, and a set of four yellow submarine badges/pins.



Pixie, I am sorry the other item you had worked on didn't work out. But I am very happy with my package. Thanks for everything.....I really enjoyed being your swap partner.

Is that the Flying Blue Glove?! Cheesy  Awesome!  My college boyfriend and his brother were crazy about that darned glove and used to yell about it to each other all the time.  Back then I thought they were crazy, now it's just funny.lol

I am sorry the magnets dried funky. The item that didn't work out was a yellow submarine hoopla.. On the bright side, I gave it to my daughter to learn how to embroider on. Everyone has made the most amazing packages. I will update tonight when I get home from work!
