Now that my amazingly patient partner has received, here's a couple of photos of what I sent:

Blue Tunisian Crochet scarf & some pinback buttons I got off of Etsy which you can kind of see in the background here

And hand drawn "twinchies" before I cut them down to size

Thanks for being patient with me and thanks for a lovely swap. Smiley

Everything so far is just wonderful! I'll be posting pics of what my partner sent later this afternoon. My little one had to have surgery and ended up running a high fever and getting really sick afterwards. Everything is fine now, so things can get back to normal Smiley

I got my package from whenindoubtsew.  It is awesome.  I love the items she made me.

First is great A'Tuin from Discworld.  I think its pretty cool we both made representations of Great A'Tuin for each other Smiley
i just finished organizing my craft room so now I'll be able to hang it up.

And a Doctor Who bag.  I love it.  I carried my stuff in it to my craft group this afternoon.  I love the long shoulder straps.  I know i will be using this all the time.

So glad it arrived - I was plugging away at the cross stitch and didn't seem to be getting anywhere but it came together in the end. The iPad app I was using was X-stitch (by BiBa software) which turns your photos into a cross stitch grid and I chose 40 colours to get some definition  Shocked It kept on telling me I was 98% finished but I still had a long way to go.

Glad you liked and they have been useful already  Cheesy

Here is all the wonderful stuff I received from Staar84:

First she made my little one a Doctor Who coloring book - he's already colored several pages Smiley

Next she made me two Doctor Who themed pillowcases! Only one is shown because the other has been on my bed since I got it!

Next a zombie apocalypse survival kit in an Altoids tin (because you just never really know when it will happen). She also sent four paracord bracelets, but three of them are on family members who wouldn't give them back for pictures Smiley

And what is this you ask....

It's bigger on the inside. Straight from my pinterest - a TARDIS UMBRELLA!!!

Thank you so much for everything, it really made a rough spell a lot easier to manage!

Whoah hang on ladies and gents. This is awesome.
Gotta ask, if the large depiction of the Great A'Tuin embroided?  If so, are there patterns?
Cos we're talking major Dr Who AND Pratchett fans here.

Thanks smallhold - it's a cross-stitch. Here are some close-up pictures I took before I sent.
Geekgirl did have a cross-stitch kit pinned http://www.busylizziecrafts.co.uk/ourshop/prod_1300334-Discworld-Great-ATuin-cross-stitch-kit.html and I just had to give it a go but being overseas I didn't have time to order it and wait for it to be delivered. As it was I posted on the extended deadline  Undecided I highly recommend the app I mentioned above if anyone has an iPad/iPhone - it rocks!!

Thanks for posting better pics Whenindoubtsew.

Sounds like a cool app.
It must have taken you forever to make it and it was well worth the wait Smiley

mightyminniemouse informed me that she received, but she's been unable to get very much internet access, so I'm going to post what I sent her.

A World of Warcraft necklace and a Batman journal.
