I received from whenindoubtsew yesterday. I got seriously spoiled. Be prepared for massive amounts of pics! Wink

First, Two mini hooplas with quotes:
Mathew and Mary:

(that's all really nice blackwork behind them)

Anna:


Wrist warmers:


Super cute shrug complete with cute flower pin:


Four pendants and a bracelet:


Closeups of pendants:



Four pairs of earrings (the hearts are my favorite!)


An awesome sewn hat (with pin)


Two sets of hair pins, stretchy headband and cuff:


And bonus, a button cupcake off my wist and lemon myrtle tea (with infuser) from Australia!


here's a pic of where I put the cupcake in Maddy's room. It's perfect!


Whew! Thanks so much for everything whenindoubt! I think my favorite thing is the shrug. I am planning on wearing it this weekend to my niece's first communion. Thanks again! I hope you enjoy what I made for you half as much as I enjoyed your package! Smiley

I'm glad it arrived and you liked the craffty's included  Cheesy I kept on making things and not being 100% happy with the end product so trying something else and in the end threw it all in the package hoping there would be something you liked  Undecided I posted in the thread I wished I was a milliner or a jeweller so I could do the fashion justice. Sorry the hat got a bit crumpled in transit.

I so wanted to do some tatting as well but I could only find my shuttles (which would take me a month of Sundays to finish anything) and my tatting needles were nowhere to be found!

Just a couple of pics - of the hat before it travelled and quote on Anna's hoop





I am really looking forward to your package arriving and positive I will love it  Grin

No - your pictures were great (you did a fantastic job being overcast!)  Cheesy The hat looked a little smooshed (I knew it would as I squashed it into the postage bag where it stayed for 2 1/2 weeks  Undecided before it got to you) back in it's heyday!!

Can't wait till your parcel arrives  Grin

Guess what - my package arrived today and I have some lovely Downton goodies  Cheesy

When I get home in a couple of hours I will post piccies of ehinders handiwork - gorgeous!


Here they are - some gorgeous goodies.

Firstly - some handmade jewellery with lovely bead work and vintage pendant and brooch. ehinders said she had forgotten how long beading took and you can see the detail she put into them. What a beautiful green in the necklace. I love them and they will be worn often (now to make some dresses etc to do them justice  Grin)



Also - a thrifted hat, tea dyed headband and interchangeable pins. The headband does fit ehinders  Cheesy I don't know if you can see but there is a Downton-esque castle cameo on one of the pins <3 (ignore my desk with my piles of paperwork  Undecided I was procrastinating)

Thanks so much ehinders - you are an awesome swap partner.
