wow more beautiful bags!  I really love the purple bag with the bird fabric on the flap.

And that wizard and words art quilt is really great.

And was that a don't panic HGTTG xstitch in that package?

Too much great stuff that I can't comment on it all but I have been pinning!

I also received a fabulous package from RougeRaven.  She sent me a book I have been quite curious to read The Book of Lost Things.  I am almost finished with my current book and can't wait to dive into this one.

Inside the book was a Harry Potter themed bookmark which I just adore.  It's already being displayed on my Harry Potter shelf along with other Harry themed swap goodies I have received and of course my HP books.


Finally a Harry Potter hoop straight from my Pinterest!  Owl Post anyone???  This is already up on my hoopla wall which I have found needs to be expanded some!


Thanks so much Rouge Raven.  I love everything!!!

So many amazing crafts! I adore all of the Hitchhiker's stuff - one of my favourite books!
And the sewing-kit book is AMAZING!

Psyche and I decided to do a meetup-swap as we love so close to eachother.

Look what I got!!!


  • A READ hoop that is already on my bookshelf where I keep all of the books I haven't read yet.
  • A matching bookmark with a hand-stitched design
  • And not one, but TWO books! The Call of the Wild and Wuthering Heights!

Thank you Psyche!

I have just finally gotten around to ogling the gallery...wow.  Everything has been so awesome and gorgeous!  So many book goodies (obviously).  Grin

Of course my favorite was the missing cross stitch by deathbeforedishes.. .oh man.  I love it so so much, I really wish it had found its way here.  Cry

I got my package today.  Prepare yourself for more Douglas Adams goodies!!  We both sent each other Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe books.  I'm so glad to finally add this to my book collection so I can pick it up to read whenever the whim strikes me. 
Here's a group shot of everything:

A fabulous 'paranoid android' hoop - her first felt-worked one!  I love it!

wonderful cross stitched patches!  I think I need to figure out how to display these somehow.  The book quote really needs to be framed and put up in my bedroom!

and a Batman bookmark that made me laugh out loud!

She also put in a Milky Way candy bar - to go with the whole Universe theme!!

Thank you so much, mthrasher138!  I'm thrilled with all my goodies!  You were a wonderful swap partner!

Have we ever had a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy swap before? Because it looks like we would rock at it! Cheesy

I am loving all the bags and embroideries everyone has made!

WOW--so much amazing new stuff has appeared in the gallery!!

Theatreorchid--I'm loving the bag you made with the embroidered patch; and the "Don't Panic" cross stitch is great!  I love the bookmark too (I don't know who Marvin is, but he is cute!).  Is that shrink plastic?

Averia--The cross stitched bookmark is lovely, and I love that it takes a quote from one of StickerChic's favorite books.  The book necklace--amazing!  And a messenger bag on top of that--you did spoil your partner!

Pioneer9--The book bag with the bird fabric is just wonderful--perfect for library excursions, I would say!  I love the bookmarks you made, each is a work of art.  Speaking of art--an art quilt?  Are you kidding me?  That is so awesome!  (The wizard fabric you used is so perfect for it too.)

RougeRaven--you found such a beautiful copy of the book for your partner, that is a great treasure.  Your Happy Potter-themed bookmark is cool, and what about that CUTE hoop!  LOVE!!

Psyche--The "read" hoop is so perfect for this swap, and the matching bookmark is perfect too.  Great work on those!

Mthrasher138--Your Hitchhiker hoop is really wonderful, and I ADORE the cross-stitch patches (I often ask to receive pieces of embroidery with unfinished edges like that, so I can use them on something like a journal cover or bag).  Your bookmark is wonderful too!

A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy swap would be spectacular. Everyone had made such amazing packages!
