(I'm sorry I haven't been around much to comment on everyone's parcels, but I have been admiring everything, and you are all so creative and amazing!)

I GOT MY PARCEL FROM LIMERIOT!!!!!! Grin

looklooklooklooklook ...



Everything is so beautiful and so me!!

She knitted me a fantastic shawl in the prettiest colours, really lightweight and so wearable, AND sent a lovely handcrafted shawl pin too ...



... and she also knitted me some beautiful mitts that fit perfectly! The photo doesn't really show just how gorgeous, soft and luminous these are ...



It is such a treat to have some lovely things knitted just for me - as a knitter myself I know how much love and work has gone into these beauties - wow!

She made a sweet needle book, and a wonderful dalek notebook, with that classic lime stylishness - I will feel happy every time I use it. Love! Smiley



And as if that wasn't enough, she sent a wonderful handmade stamp, and created some beautiful stationery with it too!



AND she totally spoiled me with some gorgeous madeline tosh yarn (wonderful colours and such a special treat for me!!) and topped it off by finding me some of the vanilla mints that I tried when I visited the US and have hankered after ever since. Grin

Thank you doesn't even begin to cover it Lime - you are amazing and I am a very lucky jemimah!!!

Ooh, I like the diagonal between the textures on those fingerless gloves-- pretty! Smiley

I've been asked to post pictures of what I sent, so here it is:



An embroidered stomacher panel (for that bit in the front of early 19th century dresses), a hand-made book (pages cut from various kinds of paper & bound with coptic stitch, covers made with wallpaper samples), and a doll-sized cameo choker.  Oh, and some ribbon extras, and while they're not in the picture, I filled the rest of the box with various sorts of tea.  Smiley


Close-up of the embroidery.  I left the edges unfinished so Ninja_poo could fit them to the dress she ends up making (and maybe bind it with co-ordinating ribbon or whatever), but now I'm sorry I didn't iron it before folding it back up to put in the box.  Oh well.

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

That embroidery is beautiful!! Such detail. I adore hand bound books too. I've really been wanting to try that.
