So I have finally received a package, and this one was from my fantastic angel Bugaboo1.
I noticed right away upon opening the box, that she cleverly filled the spaces with some lovely wool for my felting:
The first little packet was an embroidered square for me to use on my wedding quilt with our wedding date and initials:
Next up, a passport-sized wristlet for the honeymoon since I will be going to Europe. It has a handy zipper and pockets inside. The inside and outside fabrics are so pretty and vintage looking:
Then, my first hoopla ever! Straight from my pinterest
This little guy is so awesome, and I am having trouble deciding where I want to hang it so that everyone gets to see it! The little sun is fluffy/plush with pins stuck into it.
I can't wait to use the curly, yellow wool for a pet lion! I always see neat things done with curly wool, but the one pack that I bought of it, I have been hesitant to waste. But that yellow wool will be perfect for a little crafting for myself:
She also made me this lovely quilted mug rug. I use a mug rug at work all the time, but it is falling apart and stained, so I can't wait to bring in this new one!
She also customized a little tape measure. It was supposed to go with the hoopla but didn't fit. I think it is super awesome anyways!
And finally, some amazing smelling lemongrass-eucalyptus soap. This stuff made the whole box smell so lovely. I can't wait to use it
Thanks so much to my angel and the organizers. I really did enjoy the swap, despite certain circumstances.
