And I received!!

Sparkledust has done a wonderful job, and I love EVERYTHING!!

BEWARE - PICTURE OBESE

The unopened parcel:



Two wonderful monster bags for the boys. Just love the fabrics used - love that they are the same pattern in different colour ways.


Even DH was impressed with the bags - especially when I showed him the extra special additions:

How wonderful are those?? Just fabulous!

Lastly a little something for me:


Sparkledust was worried about the fabric on this one - but used it because the of the quality of the fabric (light weight canvas). I don't know why she was worried - yes, there is nothing like it on my pinterest, but then I wasn't pinning for this kind of thing! - and I LOVE it!


the inside


opened out


It's even got a pocket!!

I love it, love it, love it!!!

THANK YOU SO much Rhiannan Smiley All I need now its to find my knitting needles, so they can move into their new home!

oh - I almost forgot, there was also this:

It didn't last long  Grin Grin Grin Grin

I'm so glad you loved it all, I've never crafted for boys before so it was an utterly new challenge. Was going to say if the straps are a bit long for them you can undo the inside, pull however much you want to take off through and then re-sew and it should fit better then. I thought it was best to give more than less!

Very surprised at Royal mail, that arrived super quickly!

Thanks you for such a fun swap so far, hopefully you're not too busy with the house you could run a round 2?  Grin

PPS - You should be able to spot the knitting needle roll around and about the place! I hope there is enough room you see I only have 4 needles so I wasn't sure how big a collection can get!?

the straps are fine - I'll stick a knot in if need be, then they can be let out again when they grow - which with the way Miles is eating at the moment will be soon! And yes - I think the Royal Mail deserves a star for this one, for a change.

round 2??? I might be persuaded, after a short break! (don't forget that theres another 2 weeks on crafting on this one!!)

I love the needle roll - and believe me, if you get into knitting you will soon have more than 4 needles! I think I have about 3 pairs of 4mm needles to start with. I use them most often, and usually have more than one thing on the go, hence more than one pair.
I'm still hoping to find the things I started for you, but just in case I started again tonight, so you may end up with lots Cool

I love the flower pattern on the knitting roll - so cute.  And those bags are adorable. Great crafting!

Rescued my swap package from the sorting office this morning, and I am very happy! We both love embroidery hoops so this is pretty much a hoopla swap  Grin


This is an almost exact copy of something I have in my Etsy faves (apologies for having so many faves oceansoul!):


'Button moon' Cheesy


This is to commemorate the fact that I'll be an Olympics GamesMaker in London this summer Cheesy :


Look at the lovely stitching Smiley


And I love birds so this is great - can't quite work out if it's also in my Etsy faves somewhere or not...?


I love the ribbon wrapping and beautifully tidied backs of the hoops - plus she added a little commemorative tag to each hoop Smiley


I'm going to have to up my game a bit in order to do justice to the return package for oceansoul! Thank you!  Cheesy

Fantastic package!

Have to admit to not being a fan of hoops, but sure can appreciate the work that went into those!

I love the mountains and the button moon (isn't it funny - if it was a quilt I'd be coming to bekibuttons house to swipe it!!), and the embroidery on the Olympic rings is great, and what a lovely reminder/keepsake of this summer.

Well done on your first swap Oceansoul!
