Thanks for organising this swap Oyhana.
I received a gorgeous MYB from bubblegum_phoenix a couple of weeks ago now... (it feels like a month ago; I've had to move a bit unexpectedly and had a few other life things going on). I'm so sorry to have taken so long to post pictures and I hope bubblegum_phoenix doesn't think I am being ungrateful - I loved everything.
Here is the box when I first opened it, with a very cute penguin ami guarding it
A doctor who owl necklace which I've been wearing a lot. I've been getting heaps of compliments on it, ranging from "wow, isn't that cute" from people who have never watched the new Doctor Who, to incredibly high-pitched squees from some of my friends.
Some more of the contents -- a felt phone cozy; moisturiser and body wash; a mini sheep hoopla; a wind chime; coasters with New Zealand birds on them; also a bead necklace which is hidden under the coasters.
Close up of the hoopla (with little sheep made of french knots):
Here is a picture of everything (except for a pair of crocheted slippers which I forgot I was wearing, so had to photograph seperately). As well as the items already pictured there is a bubble blower; fridge magnets with different sayings on them (including "well behaved women rarely make history"
); a little cross stitched frigde magnet with a china frame; a notepad with a tiki on it; a yellow star shaped washcloth; NZ magnetic poetry; a geisha doll which turns into a little electric fan; a really pretty mug; and the yarn - which is a really soft wool, alpaca and possum blend.
And last, but not least, the slippers, which are very comfy, and useful, cause even though it's going into summer here, it has been a bit chilly at night.
(and sorry about my ugly feet!)
Thanks so, so much bubblegum_phoenix, there was so much thought and skill that went into the handmade items. I'm looking forward to starting my mitts, and will let you know how the yarn goes!
