for a more detailed record, see above for my updated list earlier in the thread, but quick stats are:

9 Craftsters say they have received
2 more acccording to USPS.com have too
9+2=11 packages received already, 1 week after the swap date!

5 Craftsters have sent and are awaiting news of happy arrivals.
 
11+5=16!  16 out of 16 packages have shipped!

*insert Sesame St.-style "Count" laugh here...*

Thank you all for being such awsome swappers...

Hey, I received Violet's package a few days ago.  It is absolutely positively WONDERFUL.  I'll post pictures when I get a chance, but Violet, if you have pictures, feel free to post them!

I'm putting the finishing touches on mine today and hopefully I will get to the P.O. before it closes to send it out!

I'm just lurking but I have to say HOLY COW!  This stuff is all fantastic!  Kudos for all of you taking such good care of each other.  BTW, placebo pill earrings??  Friggin genius.  I love that you can't really tell they're pills until you look real close!  Perfect for fashion, making a statement, and freaking out my parents.  Haha.

Wheeeeee! I came home late last night to discover djungelorms friend's package in tha house. It's beautiful! I love it, and a very sweet note inside.

Let's see if I can remember everything:

A nice, large heating pad in an adorable blue flannel print. I know I'll use this. It's cuddly, too. Awwwww.

THREE cloth menstrual pads -- very soft and I love the fabric and sewing, almost too much to sully them with the red tide. I really do like your design better than the ones I sent. They're soft and flexible and look like they stick to your pants really well. The ones I sent had flaps and I edged them in zigzag stitches; this makes them sort of decorative, but also kinda stiff. When I finished mine, my first thought was "Aw, man. I bet these edges will totally show through any pants that aren't MC Hammer pants. Ack!" Oh well, now I know.

A discreet and super-cute lined pad holder. Clever design, and fits in purse.

Chamomile tea (thank you - I love that kind!)

I know I'm forgetting something ...

Sorry ... it was late and I was shrieking in happiness ...

I'll post pictures on Monday, unless you took some before you shipped the box.

And, I bow down to your sewing abilities! It looks like everything was done by hand, and each stitch is perfect! It must have taken forever. Gorgeous!

Thank youuuuuu!

P.S. I took pix before I sent the package to djungelorms friend, so I'll just post 'em here and it'll save some time.

But I'm such a doofus, I forgot to put the tampon-keeper in the box. I was saving it to mail separately, but now I'm not quite sure where I stashed it. Ugh. It was probably the ugliest item anyway. Fun with late-night seams that didn't match up ...

I love that knitting needle-esque tampon holder. I'm going to have to make one for myself!

The heating pad cover is so cute! I especially like the moose! Excellent job! (Everything else is amazing as well)

littleone was my partner, she sent me some faboulus chocolate from Italy, 2 pad holder, that fits excellent in my purse, soap that was so cute looked like a chocolate bar. I think this is the swap, and a flower petal that is soap. 2 Face mask (herbal). I love it all. If I am wrong about the soap like chocolate let me know littleone.
Anywho.
I loved everything.!
