I always get swap anxiety... Anyway! Here is the wonderful swap package I received from Gingerpeachy!

(Wow, the lighting is really bad in these pics. Sorry.)

Closer ups: Smiley
Something recycled and something related to the letter "M":

The owl is a pincushion made from scrap fabric. So cute!
The Mints disappeared quite quickly...and were delicious!

Something green and something local:

The green is pretty self explanatory - and pretty yarn! The local - Cascade yarns are made in Seattle!

Something funny:

A yarn ball stuffed with chocolate. Funny and Yummy! I'm referring to both the yarn and the chocolate as yummy. I've wanted to try Noro yarn. I'm so excited!

Something hard:

Some beautiful stitch markers maed from czech glass beads.

Something dotted:

Isn't it beautiful?! Gingerpeachy made this pendant in her art class.

Sender's choice:

I had to smile when I opened this one. I made her the same pendant! I saw it on Gingerpeachy's pinterest and thought, "I love that pendant. I can do that!" It's too funny that she pinned it from my pinterest. After I made the one for Ginger I really wanted my own and now I have one! It is beautiful and I love it!

I loved this swap and Gingerpeachy was an amazing partner!

Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Yay! I'm so glad you liked everything Gingerpeachy! I had fun crafting and hunting for you.

I received my amazing goodies too. I'll be posting pictures in one minute. Smiley

And, yes, the project bag is a knot bag. I have a few and I love them for knitting or crocheting on the go.

I got my package from hazelly. It is so awesome.

Awesome package. Adore the little owl and I love hand made pendants.

Gives me a wonderful idea.  I was sewing the other day and wondered why I still haven't got one of those pin cushions that attach to my sewing machine. I am now inspired, a cute owl one would look so cool.

I got a package full of fibery goodness from Eiseldora!

Something Local: alpaca fiber that Eiseldora dyed!

Something Green: a small yarn cutter! (I really needed this!)

Something Recycled: a spindle case, recycled from a pringles can!

Something 'M': Mohair locks!

Something Dotted: More fiber! Romney wool, dyed by Eiseldora!

Something Funny: A bunny head magnet needlefelting kit!

I think this fiber goes with 'something funny' too?  Eiseldora dyed this too!

Something Hard: Dishes!  (I mentioned spinning dishes, but I wasn't very clear about it, but these are lovely dishes all the same!)

Sender's Choice: Silk cocoons!  And Eiseldora dyed the orangey and black ones!

And I'm not sure what category this Corriedale that Eiseldora dyed goes into, but it's my favorite colors of the bunch!

I love how all the fibers are different!  Thank you for the wonderful package!

Amazing packages so far!  All that fibre is beautiful!  Got an email saying I have a package waiting for me, might be my swap!  We'll see tomorrow...
