If you prefer them for your arms, that's fine too, lol.

Glad you like it all

Love those arm/legwarmers  Grin  and knitted slippers always come in handy. I like to throw a pair in my bag when we go to visit friends/family so my feet stay warm & comfy. I have neuropathic foot pain and keeping my feet happy is a big priority  Grin

Monnie, I actually saw the package last night and it was great. I really liked the leg/arm warmers and the sugar cubes.

I received from my partner to. She made me an awesome skirt made out of sheets and a pillow case. I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

I've been tracking my package that I sent and according to USPS it is sitting in limbo somewhere. I hope it arrives today. I spent extra to have it delivered by Saturday but my partner still hasn't received.  Undecided

I received from our wonderful organizer Samsara today.  This is the second time we've partnered.  I invited her in my very first swap, an Invite Your Partner.   Grin  Here's my fantastic package she sent across the pond.  She made me wrapped bangle bracelets and an altered tin in a bee theme (we're beekeepers). 



Here's what's inside the tin.  So cute!


A beaded copper heart with dangling amber beads.  Love it!


A shirt with a hand drawn mehendi design.  I'm an occasional mehendi artist, I so appreciate this!


Here's a close up of her design.  Samsara, you should be a mehendi artist if you aren't already.  So beautiful!


Mehendi cards!  I had such a hard time using the handmade cards you sent me in our last swap.  I think these may need to be framed!


An embroidered appliqued beekeeper themed bag!

 
Here's the back!


A pixie hat and matching snood!  I never thought I'd say this but I think I needed a snood!   Smiley  My husband was thrilled to see it, he always fusses at me for not dressing warm enough.


Thank you so much, Samsara!  I loved partnering with you for a second time and love everything you made me.  Kiss

Hurray! I'm glad you liked everything - they were fun to make for you MissingWillow. I thought the snood might be very practical - scarves annoy me sometimes because the ends flap about or get caught up in things, so I thought a snood would be good for when you're working on the farm and you need to be warm but unencumbered!! I might make one for myself sometime!! The applique took me ages - every stripe is sewn on individually!  Wink

A beautiful outcome!  I'm going to use it to take supplies to a friend's house today for 'craft day'.

I received my hippy swap from AttieNichole. She did a great job on spoiling me!!

First up, she made me this skirt made out of bed sheets and a pillow case. A very clever idea!

Sorry for the dogs nose print all over the mirror. LOL

Then she made me these cool looking foodies and headband.
I already had a sliding contest with my son across the wood floors- I won!! LOL


She also made me this art collage which I love!!


She also made me this bookmarker which is already in use and a beaded bracelet.



And last but not least, the extra.


AttieNichole, Thanks for everything. I am a bad photographer; if you have better pictures, please post them.
