Koreena - Im so glad you liked your package. I was worried that the feathers would break while shipping. It was a blast swapping with you. Cheesy

Received from mod35tbabe today!  Her package made it safe and sound from Australia, earlier than I thought it would!  Now if only mine could get to her as quickly....

Anyway, first up are a book bag and pincushion - a little blurry, sorry  Tongue (I told her not to bother stuffing the pincushion for ease of shipping):


close up of the patch pocket on the front of the bag:


and two super cute note cards!! Totally love these!


Everything is so cute!!  Thank you, mod35tbabe!

ZOMG!!!!

Look who greeted me at my door today!



I started opening the box, and when I saw the eyes I knew exactly what who it was; Marvin, the depressed robot from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  I was so excited I dropped the box.  This is the COOLEST thing I have ever received through the mail.  Koreena, you are incredibly talented.  You spoiled me so much!  I'm thinking of making a special nook just for him.  I love it!



Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and they ask me to pick up a piece of paper.

Trillian: What are you supposed to do with a manically depressed robot?
Marvin: You think you've got problems. What are you supposed to do if you are a manically depressed robot?

Then, ontop of Marvin Koreena made this really cool embroidery.



Believe it or not, the background is actually stitched!  That's not premade fabric.  Too cool!

I said I was spoiled right?  Because last, but not least a really cozy bag.  It is made from the softest wool. 



Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!   Grin Grin Grin

Love the Marvin doll, that's gorgeous. I received from Bunny1Kenobi today, will post pics soon Smiley
and here is my awesome loot. Thanks so much for a lovely package!
First up this cool little drawing on the outside of the package - talented much??

Then we have the coolest magnets ever, a cute hair tie for my step daughter, a colour pinwheel pendant (useful for my course) and a cool bookmark with same quote I put on her bag hehe - great minds think alike?!

And lastly, an awesome skull & roses bag and lip balm


Thank you so much, you've spoilt me rotten

I started opening the box, and when I saw the eyes I knew exactly what who it was; Marvin, the depressed robot from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  I was so excited I dropped the box.  This is the COOLEST thing I have ever received through the mail. 

I am so happy to know that you love your package Leah  Grin  This has been a great swap experience for me & it was super fun & easy to craft for you!!  As soon as I read your likes & googled images from Hitchhikers Guide & saw that doll...  That was it!  Had to be done!  He is my very first knitted doll, so I hope that you will forgive the less-than-perfect seams...

The hoop - Also my first!  Knowing that you're a pilot & knowing that I wanted to try embroidery, I googled images of planes... Of course, when I saw that, it also had to be done!  I thought you might appreciate the humour  Smiley

And the bag.  Oh, the bag.  I got in trouble with my family for sending it to you!!  I had bought about 8 balls of that soft, tweedy yarn for myself in November and promised that I would use it to make a sweater or jacket for myself...  I don't actually own anything that I've made!!!  Since I bought it, I have made 3 projects for other people using "my" yarn  Smiley  My SO actually tried to take it out of the box and told me that you would be thrilled with the other two projects, but I snuck it back in Smiley  I'm just sorry that I didn't line it before sending!!  Haha~ anyway...   Thanks again for an awesome swap experience ~ Hope to see you around the boards soon!

Okay, so my internet is finally working (for the moment) and I can post some pictures!

First off, some warm wool socks for my friend. He has crazy cold feet all the time and these socks are sure to warm them up. And then maybe he will quit putting his popsicle feet on my toasty skin because they will no longer be ice cubes.


A very cute scarf.


A different scarf based on one from my wist.


And some pretty felt flowers and a washer necklace.


It is all really great. Thank you so much amazing_784!!!

Everyone has been sending such nice packages! So far, we're just waiting on two more to arrive. Please check the front page of this thread. If your package has arrived, you should have feedback now. If you have received from your partner, but the list doesn't indicate that, please let me know!

Thanks to you all for helping me complete this swap. You've all been great.  Smiley
