After a bit of postal service scare, since I first provided the wrong postal code, it arrived today just fine Cheesy


A lovely tiny nest with eggs


And a wee-tiny wooden zoo! it's so precious Smiley Wulf said he bought it before I was born! it has lamas, rinos, bears, groundhugs and kangaroos!

Now prepare for the awesome:





Wulf's great traditionnal eggs in their unbreakable form! How pretty are they?
Mariann happened to open the fish one and Merrick the deer. They are gorgeous!
And they were filled with sugary surprises, much to the kids' exitement!


I'm posting this shot because I know you guys will love it Smiley The belly got on the way, but look at that wonderfull work of art. I don't know where to hang it, but it'll find its place soon enough.


Extra was a really cool embroidery pattern book. The images are all lovely. It could even be used as a tattoo reference book. He aslo thrown another belt buckle for the belt he made for Merrick for Yule, since he lost the other one.

And a lovely card Smiley


Once again, it was so much fun crafting for you and we all loved what you made for us! Those eggs will be sherished for years Cheesy

The tree is lovely. It reminds me of an aunt that would always make one Smiley

I love the Ostara Banner! There's pretty flowery bia-tape all around!

The hand painted piece is so neat I first wondered if it was embroidery Cheesy

I'm so relieved it got there okay, Maman! When the Canada Post tracking gave a new estimated delivery date of April 2, I feared the worst! And this was one of those packages that I hadn't had a chance to photograph myself before I sent it out.

I especially love the over-the-belly shot of the sunrise appliqué. Cheesy I meant it to be an altar cloth, but it could certainly be a wall hanging too. And the photo of Mariann smelling the eggs is very sweet. (The nest was only meant to hold three eggs, but I squeezed four in so each of you could have one.)

The tiny wooden zoo originally came in two or three matchboxes, which unfortunately I didn't keep. It sat on our window sill for years, then got put away in a box until I came across it recently. I hope it has years more play in it.

And the other packages have been so beautiful too! I really love that wreath - such great colours, and are those pussywillows?! Sweet!

I received from MamanTattoo today! She knew to use the correct address, so her package only took two days instead of a week. Embarrassed It was a tiny, perfect little package, and I took the contents outside thinking I'd get a better photo in the daylight. But it wasn't very bright, so these photos are pretty poor. They especially don't show the bright, Springtime colours of everything.



She knitted me TWO dishcloths with a egg patterns on them, one a very intense green the exact colour of new poplar leaves and the other softly speckled. And a crocheted egg (stuffed with wool and chamomile, apparently) in another wonderfully speckled yarn. I so wish we had a cat to share it with! The yarn on the cloths is especially soft and pleasant to touch.



This chocolate rabbit is yummy even though (or maybe because) it's made of felt, and he brought some real chocolate treats - a chicken and an egg. The best part is this enthusiastically beautiful Ostara card, painted and signed by a small artist. (Tell Mariann "Merci pour la belle carte" from me, please!)

Thanks for the great package, Andréann - it's always a joy to swap with you!

Great packages!  I love love love the belly shot Maman!  That altar cloth/wall hanging is amazing Wulf!  Those eggs are great too, I was blessed to have Wulf as my partner 2(?) years ago and have one myself Smiley

That felt bunny is so fun, and Mariann's card is gorgeous!

I'm happy you love everything! And I'm happy you requested a card, I hadn't paint with the kids for a long time, in fear of the mess, but it was actually lots of fun and just a bit of cleaning Smiley
The egg was the perfect project to use what I had left of the yarn we dyed with food coloring. 
If you and Ian ever adopt a cat, I'd be a happy to crochet some more with catnip Tongue

This is what I sent to thesillyseemstress.
She wished for a goddess/spirit doll and a hoop. I'm not much of a seemstress myself so I did the best i could lol!

For my egg inspired item I made this bright feathery candle wreath...



I made this simple hoop inspired by the stuff I had in my stash...


The goddess doll was inspired by one of her Pins....I hand stitched it all so don't look too closely lol!



And the painting is titled "The Hare Moon" and I thought it fitting for Ostara. I painted it in January hoping to use it for this swap Wink
