Oh, how pretty they all are! I can just imagine you being gallant and Mr.Darcy-ish and whipping out a hadkerchief for a lady in distress, Wulf! Grin

I am so glad that you like them Wulf, the lace on piece in the third picture is indeed exquisite! looking at the top pic, the bottom one, the trim looks like tatting in the pic, I am not sure if it is, but they look great from here!

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness.

Would love some hand knitted socks for my big foot boyfriend.

Just received my personal swap items from Whenindoubtsew, and I was so ridiculously spoiled.



First up, an awesome padded project bag with Serenity embroidered on the front. It's actually so soft I could probably go to sleep on it like a pillow... And it has pockets for my hooks/needles to slip into as well, which is actually really handy. Here's a little close up of the amazing stitching -



I also received an ADORABLE teacup-house-pincushion that she saw me pin and had to make. It's perfect, and just in time because I was about to go out and buy some pins (no need now!).



Then there's also this sweet hat -



It's a little brighter in person, but so soft and comfy. I can definitely see myself wearing this when it gets cold at night. And, as a plus...



This awesome steampunk-ish design with the word "GUNSLINGER" on it (because of the Dark Tower, right?) It's very cool and might be something to practice my embroidering with, perhaps?

There was also a little bag with some chocolates in it... I don't think those are going to last very long!

Now my turn - sometimes it's nice to live close (relatively speaking) to your swap partner and get things at the same time. Be prepared for some major spoilage in my personal swap with queenofmarigold! As a bit of background we finished our first Whedonverse swap together and were both feeling like we had ideas for each other leftover - hence a personal swap was born.



Firstly an eye watering magnificent whitework hoop with "shiny" as the centre. I love this - what a phenomenal Firefly hoop. And a "I love my captain" hoop for I indeed love Captain Mal Reynolds



This is a reversible brown and cream ear flap beanie to match my illusion knitted "can't stop the signal' scarf. It is Wash inspired with dinosaurs and palm trees. It's on my noggin as we speak as it is cold here and it's toasty warm and oh so pretty!



Now queenofmarigold hit my Pinterest hard and made me some of my most longed for and lusted after pieces including this tree of life pendant - beautiful an delicate



And last but definitely not least this yarn-bombed altered matchbox masterpiece. I screamed like my butt was on fire each time I opened a teeny tiny drawer. This loveliness contained 3 pairs of earrings (an origami pair which got worn straight away), a Chan Luu inspired bead wrap bracelet - almost lost it to a work colleague who tried to steal it from me, a dinosaur necklace (I love my prehistoric pals) and a dream catcher necklace - beautifully done.

Thank you so much queenofmarigold - you spoilt me big-time - you know how to PM me whenever you are up for a bit of extra sneaky crafting  Grin

The vintage linens are quite a find!  I love to imagine that someday, future generations will find out works cherished as well...love the geese embroidery...and all of the beautiful trims...

The hats in the last two packages are wonderful as well...nice personal swaps!

Wow these last packages have been epic! I love that giraffe fabric and that little yarn bombed match box... but really there's just too much to comment on everything!

So glad your package arrived BB!! 90 days- I wonder what your package was up to whilst trekking around the globe!

I received a wonderful package from Foxy Sam the other day! It made it from NZ to NY in just a little over a week!!! So sometimes the post works out ok Smiley


I love this hoop so much! The textures and all the layering- right up my alley Smiley


super soft wrist warmers, reminding me that summer is starting to poop out on me here in upstate NY Smiley friendship bracelet and wonderful chocolate goodies!


and a crochet hook roll so that I can finally take my hooks out of a zip-lock bag and give them a proper home Smiley

She also sent (which I thought I photographed but apparently didn't) some christmasy bits to collage with and some junk-mail flyers that I requested to collage with as well .

Thank you so much Sam! I love everything!
