Here is my thank you gift, isn't it amazing!!!
 I love it Smiley
It is a handmade piece of Doctor Who fabric inspired by a piece on spoonflower. I think this one is much cooler, but I can't imagine how long it took to stamp it all!

haha Wow! I love all of the awesome Thank You gifts that people have been sending Smiley  This has been such a great swap!

Here is my sorted out, edited post!!

I must apologize to our organizers & my partners again for taking sooooooooooooo long to post...  Has been a chaotic few weeks!  I just managed to grab a quick break & take a few pictures of the awesomeness that bookstorebabe sent my way Smiley  

Here is the amazing sparkly blue crown that she made for my thank you gift Smiley


She was sweet enough to include a nice long note about the making process, which of course is at home & I can't remember all of the details.  I promise you, she put a lot of care & consideration into making it though and her effort is greatly appreciated!!  If you can believe it, this gorgeous piece began with vintage lace & leather!  My derby girls are going to be jealous when I break it out as "Queen Koreen" for the day  Wink  It actually matches my helmet...  you're either an amazing stalker, or I'm super lucky!  

She also sent a wicked old school roller skate pin, but it is currently pinned to the rear-view in my car...  I will add a picture of it when I update next. So awesome!!

*I found out that my sister "borrowed" the pin while I was away last weekend... Apparently it will be perfect for the outfit she's putting together for a murder mystery dinner... Pictures soon :/

And do you ever feel like you've made out like a bandit in a swap??  I certainly did when I discovered the 2 pieces of jewelry that she was kind enough to include as 'extras' for me...  Check them out:


This picture doesn't do them justice!  I'm using my BB playbook & there's no flash...  boo me.  I had checked out bookstorebabe's etsy page & wanted to buy these from her...  she was generous enough to send them along & refuse to let me pay!  Thank you so much!!!  It's been a lot of fun swapping with you & again, sorry for the delays.

My other partner, the lovely Ms. Lillyanka, is also a huge spoiler and was a great Giver. She sent me an awsome bag FULL of yarns, hooks, needles & a Stitch n' Bitch book (!!!).  The goodies came on a road trip with me last weekend, and unfortunatly this means I won't be able to provide a complete, untouched, group shot...  There are already a couple of WIP's that I am using her goods to make  Grin  I will post photos of the spoilage either tonight (if I can) or tomorrow at the latest. Here are some photos of the awesomeness:

All of the goodies:


My WIPs (knit phone cosy from the book, made-up hand heart warmers & beginning of a crocheted cowl)




Some fun variegated yarns (perfect for my crochet club projects)


Some hemp and cotton yarns


And the hooks & book Smiley


Lastly, the thank you gift that I received from pink-josy - Love this!!! I was just saying that I needed another keyring Smiley I love happy coincidences! Look at how pretty it is Smiley


 
Thank you so much for your patience with me & for such a great swap experience!  I've had a great time with it Smiley Now to wait for my new friend Lillyanka to receive the thank you gift that I made for her...

wow, I love the doctor who hand stamped fabric! That must have taken forever!

koreena, I'm glad you like your stuff! And it's sheer coincidence that the crown matches your helmet. All hail Queen Koreen! Cheesy

Thanks! It really wasn't too bad. It was the kind of project I could do while watching a favorite movie. Ok, more then 1 favorite movie. I seem to be incapable of making smalls. Everything turns into a big, epic project. lol  Tongue But it was fun to make and I learned a few things about fabric pattern design too.

Oh and I love the blue sparkly princess crown! I need me one of those.  Cheesy

Forgot to post pictures of my thank you gifts from SheepBlue and Ninaprettyballerina. Photo posting seems to be one of my weak points since I bought a new camera with a different systems program than the one I was using. Better photos but more of a headache to process the shots.

First the handcarved stamps from SheepBlue. Love them all, but the 'awesome' will probably make its way to school with me. I think my students will really enjoy seeing it stamped on their best papers, and the way they're mounted makes them very easy to use.

Next, a group shot of my thank you gifts from Ninaprettyballerina.

A close-up of the money note pad, bracelet, necklace, koala clip-on, and vintage napkin pouch. I love kangaroos and koalas, so the clip-on is perfect! The vintage pouch is much too nice to use as a pencil pouch, but I may make it my traveling crochet hook carrier. Really much too nice to use it for that, too.

And lastly, a close-up of one of the crocheted motifs on the scarf. Actual colors of the yarn are much closer to that of the first group photo. Don't think I have the determination to make and join that many motifs!


Thank you again, SheepBlue and Ninaprettyballerina, for the great thank you gifts!
