This is the amazing package i received:
2 books - Ive already started getting hooked into one.  The other was a bonus copy of the yaya sisterhood, which was also on my list, that Kylie picked up - she says that never happens to her - so lucky me!!  I received a black chain with sewing notions hanging off it - inspired no doubt by one of my novels! (thanks Kylie!) Wink The bookmark is gorgeous with a quote from the book "I was carried away, swept along by a might stream of words pouring from the hundreds of pages.  To me it was the ultimate book; once you read it, neither your own life nor the world you lived in would ever look the same."  What a great quote! The Chinese symbol apparently means "read".  Kylie you mentioned a second bookmark about a Chinese proverb about books? Im so sorry I couldnt find it in the package Sad  So sorry.

She also made my a mini travel sewing kit again with great pockets and cute little scissors that came with it!

Kylie also included some poppy seed soap - yum!  and tea (tea and books!!  great combo!!) we should include tea with books for the next book swap Wink ;)wink wink

And Kylie how did you know about my love of peanuts in choc?? yum!  cant wait to get into that !!  ( using all my willpower cos i gotta fit in this dress for a wedding in 2 weeks - pat on the back for me - i still havent opened it up!!) Wink

And all this came in a wonderfully made bag ( which i will be using for crocheting projects!!)  inspired by the book - with Chinese material.  The great thing is there are lots of pockets and zips to hold all the stuff like scissors and the fantastic sewing kits I was sent also!!  Its amazing how you sewed all the pieces together in this bag!  ( i would have been so confused!!)

Thank you so much KYLIE! I love it all and feel so spoilt!  Thanks also to Leslie and Susan for such a great swap!!
(sorry about the gigantic post!)

Jennifer680, the Nook cover is fabulous!  Wow!  Such awesome collage! And a bright, pretty bookmark!

Flyraeven, your painting is beautiful!  The bookmark is wonderful too; is that knit or crocheted?

Thanks! The bookmark is crocheted. I am glad you liked it Erin!

Awesome bag, necklace, sewing kit and bookmark, whenindoubtsew!  And I love the extras too--the chocolate covered peanuts and tea...and the soap looks good enough to eat!

But really, lets go back to that bag for a moment.  You made a sewing kit and a necklace, but that wasn't enough, you made an incredibly detailed bag too??  You are one amazing swapper!

Finally, here are my photos of my fab package from Elyxandra! We swapped in person a ways back.

First of all, the crafted item: a book tote! It's got a nice almost 80's tone to it, I think.


Then there's the books! Two from my list, Blood Meridien by Cormac McCarthy and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.


And some neat water colour bookmarks. Smiley


Thanks Elyxandra, it's a great package!

Ooh, Elyxandra, I love your artistic approach to the book bag and bookmarks! The bag is cool with the bold graphic letters, and the painted bookmarks are so pretty, and I like what you wrote on each one. And TWO books! Great package!
