Thanks guys Smiley 

I have a total hoop obsession at the moment, can't get enough of them! Cheesy

So glad you like them bekibutton!  As soon as I saw that mountain print on your Etsy I just had to try and recreate it Smiley  The button's were a much needed addition after reading through your questionnaire!
The bird one wasn't from your Etsy, but when I was clicking through I saw something similar on one of the sellers pages of something on your list, and fell in love with the idea. 
Those Olympics rings were a bit of a killer, but all the teeny satin stitch was definitely worth it.  Hope you have an awesome time there this summer!

Totally loved my first swap, and will definitely be signing up for more Cheesy

Great hoops, in awe of that satin stitching, not sure I have that much patience! They look so neat on the back too! Where are you going to display them?

Great start to the gallery.  Love the fabric on the knitting needle holder and those hoops are great - love the button moon.

Ok here goes with my package from the amazing Trekky

Beautifully wrapped with a lovely note, and I unwrapped the butterfly paper so carefully so I can reuse it Cheesy


First up, delicious Scottish butter tablet.. this was just amazing! I hit my weight-loss goal today so was going to treat myself to half and give my other half.. the other half. But then I accidentally ate the whole lot anyway.. OOPS! My teeth are growling at me for all that sugar but it was so worth it! Dentist on Wednesday too.. tehee! NOM.


Then, these gorgeous crochet flower brooches (or knitted! Sorry for my stoopid-ness) and three cute badges!


And then these BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL AMAZING 'Catching Butterflies' arm warmers that I had on my pinterest. I LOVE THEM! I love everything about them! I only noticed after I'd taken the photos that I may have them on upside-down? But they look utterly cute either way Cheesy (Taking these piccies was tricky!)



Thank you Trekky for an amazing package! ♥

Glad it got there ok!  Your photography skills are amazing!

I think the handwarmers are how you had them on - but you can have either way  Cheesy  And, yes the flowers are crochet!

For anyone who has not tried tablet, it is like fudge but sweeter.  I had never heard of it until I moved to Scotland.  It is rather delicious, but so very bad for you!   Wink

wow!!

love the handwarmers, they are a lovely colour and the butterfly makes them extra special, and the brooches/badges are great!

And TABLET!! YUM YUM YUM Smiley Grin haven't had tablet in YEARS - like since I left Scotland about 20 odd years ago! Remember trying to make i8t with a frie+-n-d+88 *666666
+ and it being a total and epic FAIL - it didn't set, but we ate it anyway Tongue

(sorry for the extra bits - that was Scott saying 'hello'  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes )
