Oh man, the reality of how long it takes something to reach another country just hit me. Eeeeeeeee...I want you to have it nooooooow! Also, I think I missed the fed ex guy today, but at any rate we'll find out soon.

I know, I'm hoping everyone involved with the postal service are on their toes and aware that they are guardians of our precious creations with important destinations! Also, remember my teaser pic? Well, forget it. It turned out that I wasn't happy enough with it to send off so it'll be surprises all round!

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! I just got the package and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE everything!!!! I was having just a stupid sort of day and having this waiting for me at home cheered me up right away! It was ridiculous too because I kept pulled out the first thing and went "Oh man this is the best thing ever" until I pulled out the second and third thing and said the same thing!

Here's what Paige sent!

A lovely letter to verify that she is indeed, a real human being and not my imagination. Smiley


Monster pillow!!!! It's so cute, my daughter keeps trying to take it! I'm keeping him on my desk!

And you know, in case anyone was ever visiting and wondering just how big a nerd I am:
It's my favorite Latin saying, completely in green! It looks like she even painted the hoop! Also, this was immaculately done. Whenever I make something like this there is a "wrong" side which the world should never EVER see, but the back of this looks pretty good. (Jess, there is a wrong side to your big item. Just a warning. Smiley

And finally, proof that I am possibly the most spoiled swap recipient ever:


As a crocheter, I can tell that had to have taken much longer than a few hours, unless you work at the speed of light. The stitching is beautiful and the yarn looks like it might be sock weight? That couldn't have been easy! Anyway, it's beautiful and soft and I can't wait to wear it with my dresses during shows and around campus when I want to let people know just how much more fancy I am than all of them.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

YAY!!!! I'm so happy you like everything. The yarn is 100% Merino fingering weight. I have to be honest and say that I was going for a neckerchief type item but it is much larger. Once I started it I had to see it all the way through. The hardest part was the little tassels!

I saw those little pillow monsters in another swap and thought they were very cute!

And I did paint the hoop!


Courtney, you are so very welcome! I had a great time making each item for you and I'm glad you liked them!

wow! It's all so fantastic! You did such a good job Paige! And of course Courtney is very lucky! Oh and Courtney, if you're concerned about 'wrong sides' don't be, mine is all of me when I wake up with hair like Einstein and Paige my larger item for you has one too (the inside) but my long term plan is to learn to craft wrong-side-free.

Such great work! I can't wait till we can fill out the rest of the gallery!

That shawl is SO intricate!
