I'm terribly late posting pictures of the amazing package kuckyjune sent me, so let me correct that right now. Smiley With LOTS of pictures!

I chose ancient Egypt as my culture, and this is directly from my q'aire: "Are there any particular symbols/gods/pictographs you like? I love Anubis and Bast, Isis with her wings, ... the eye of Horus(Ra)." Wow, did kucky come through on that!

The other items were inside this one:

I sat with my mouth literally open for a few seconds when I saw it, and then grinned like a fool. Look how perfect her stencilling is:
I love the sparkliness of the collar, her eye, and her tail-ring. Smiley
She even decorated the inside of the bag with a handmade potato stamp (which was one of my clues!), stamped the border with styrofoam (clue!) and put in a handy pocket:

This is one of my favorite swap items ever!

Okay, so there is more awesomeness! Once I quit drooling over the bag, I pulled out a bunch of goodies, including this spectacular woodburning (clue!) that was wrapped in crochet:



I am in awe of her talent; look at her clean lines:
and the color on the wings is pieces of glass (?): My crappy pictures don't do it justice!

There was this nifty pouch with more flawless stencilling and a cute decorative border:

and it had some fun little extras inside, as well as a velcro closure (clue!):

Also, see the Anubis stencil (which is, of course, perfect! Smiley)? The whole package smelled amazing, and that is why: it's a sachet filled with the tea that she used to dye the bag (clue!).

As if all that wasn't more than enough, she sent me rocks!, some oyster shells, some fabric remnants, paper!, and a pretty card in envelope that cracked me up (one of the things she wrote is: "A shepherd's hook and cat o'nine tails? Egyptians were kinky!" LOL


And here is everything all together:

Sorry for the poor picture quality.
I absolutely adore everything- it's such an awesome package! Thank you, kuckyjune! You are so talented! Smiley

Grin I'm so glad you like it!! Yes, the color on Isis' wings is glass from a mosaic kit I have never used. The kit says the glass has been tumbled so as not to be sharp, but I'd still keep it away from little ones if you have them. I have to admit, giving up the bag was hard, I was so happy with the stencil. Its the first time I've used screen printing ink as opposed to fabric paint, it seems to come out much cleaner.

Oooh... I wondered about that- it is very smooth! I'm going to have to try that next time. Smiley
