Ooh, ooh, Sir, Siir, SIR, I got a parcel! Can I show them please. <jumps up and down with excitement>






I pulled out 2 beautifully wrapped gifts and a card from my parcel (which I was too excited to wait til I got home to open, so went to a coffee shop straight away to unwrap). The card I looked at straight away and laughed out loud to the annoyance of the other drinkers. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy


And then I unwrapped my goodies.

First of all I got a Stamp album! Not just any stamp album, but Stanley's own stamp album Smiley, and I can spot that it comes from just the point where he has stopped collecting pins and just started on the stamps.

Such a handy thing, especially as it has just become the season for trying to assemble supplies for this project
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429484.msg5129311#msg5129311

And then I got the beautiful Klatchian coffee corset (which I've been wearing round my wrist all day, hoping for the opportunity for a drink on the run Roll Eyes), this photo should show its reverse.


And I have to say: I'm off on my travels this long weekend (pre-Christmas mad rush), but I'm making time tomorrow morning to go to my Fat Sally's for breakfast. Grin Grin

Thank you again Noodle-Bug Kiss, you got me perfectly. A wonderful, wonderful swap package.

Wonderful start to the gallery!

The stamp album is wonderful, I love that Stanley didn't totally abandon his pins!

When I worked in a craft store I stocked a lot and whenever I did the notions aisle I would get the giggles when I would get to the pins box. Unfortunately no one I worked with understood it.

Y'all are gonna be so jealous of my awesome parcel from antidigger

I told her Nanny Ogg was my favourite character, since being cast as Nanny in a school production of masquerade is how I first got into discworld... so she wrote to nanny for me, and look what nanny sent...

It's her midwifery bag, stuffed with supplies..
 
there's a bottle of 'whiskey' (I couldn't seem to get a non-blurry photo, I'll try again later) which smells suspiciously like bubble bath Wink some matches and a candle, some dried frog pills in an awesome tin, a needle & thread in an old jolly sailor tabacco tin, soap, lots of letters to nanny from grateful patients, some pages from a biology book, and a mouse from Greebo, and loads of towelling cloths backed onto cute fabric prints


aaaaaaand (can you believe there's more!) a souvenir shot glass from two-shirts, and  a handmade card


What an amazing swap parcel! Thanks so much antidigger

The midwifery bag is wonderful! antidigger what a great project idea. Is the bag itself crafted? If so super awesome if not what an amazing fine. I can easily picture Nanny Ogg lugging her bag of midwifery necessities around, noodle-bug you will have to get into character and give us an action shot  Cheesy  What a fun way to be introduced to Discworld.

I'm very excited to say that I have received from both of my partners, and they are both awesome! Unfortunately my pictures are not that awesome, I get home after all the sun is gone.

Yesterday from dontneedaclassroom I got a plaque/message board, two adorable figures and some origami flowers. The flowers were going to be a hat pin (via Vimes) but she didn't think it would be structurally sound.

Front of plaque, with a quote from Death. I love the lettering and the little crystal touch on the stand.  


And the coolest part. The back is made of corkboard and has crisscross ribbons to also hold things.


Death and Susan figures. She left the back blank so I can make them into either magnets or tacks, I'm torn about what to make them into. The little origami flowers are all in a little box.


Thank you dontneedaclassroom. I love everything.

Today from myloveasdeep, I received some wonderful wall art. A portrait of Death, a Hogswatch sign, some pins and a the card from her is in the style of Deaths Hogswatch card.

Deaths portrait. I opened my package and exclaimed "oh look at Death! He's adorable!" my MIL gave me a look and told me "you girls are odd ones".


Hogswatch sign. I don't have any holiday decorations up yet so this is putting my house in a festive spirit.


Pins and card. The pins read "but as frontiers go, it's pretty penultimate", "Vetinari for tyrant", "Property of: Unseen University Athletics", ""where the hell is Muntab?""exactly"".


Thank you myloveasdeep! Everything is definitely my style, can't wait to get the art on the walls Smiley

I feel so spoiled. I'm so glad I went with two partners Smiley Thank you both again!!

I have received from our fearless leader!

First up, a Seamstress Guild t-shirt: Often licked, never beaten! That's the spinach right there. A book necklace with a tiny metal-stamped OOK! (loves), and my FAVORITE: A shrine to Anoia, Goddess of Things That Get Stuck in Drawers!

It has a tiny metal spoon in the shrine itself, and a wee drawer with a padlock and key in it, for the opening of said stuck drawers! I LOVES IT. The details! They slay me!



Thank you so much, lady4feet! You rock!

I'm so glad you like everything myloveasdeep. I have tried shrine making in the past and have always ended up scrapping my project so I was so happy that the Anoia shrine came out more or less how I pictured in my head.

Wow, I love that Anoia shrine!

I received from lady4feet a couple of days ago, but it's been a crazy couple of days in between. Smiley She sent me a cute little card, a lovely bit of embroidery with one of my favorite quotes from the Tiffany Aching books, and my very own Ank-Morpork City Watch badge.



"Taint what a horse looks like, it's what a horse be." And look how cute the little horse charm is!



The badge is a transformer - it has a cord to wear it as a necklace, or I can flip up the ribbon and wear it as a pin.



The embroidery is already hanging on my gallery wall, and the badge is hanging on a keyhook by the front door in case any sudden crimes occur during important state dinners.

Thanks lady4feet!

You're welcome. I'm so glad you like everything. Is that my pets hair on your wall hanging? Ugg, they were all taking turns sitting on my lap while I stitched it up. I swear I tried to clean it up, crazy animals  Roll Eyes

Haha, it could be your pets, but it could just as easily be my cat. She's a tortoiseshell so her hair has the miraculous ability to show up on any fabric. Smiley

Great gallery - everyone is so talented.

Whilst I adore my swap partners for agreeing to send overseas I always feel guilty as I am usually one of the last to post their goodies in the gallery and not everyone gets to see them  Undecided But that being said hopefully people stop by and see the awesome stuff bakeneko made just for me  Cheesy

First a crazy cool wood etched box with my favourite discworld character - the librarian (I have an affinity with orangutans as I am a redhead!!!) He is so wise and his 'ooks' usually get his point across  Smiley And also a Ramtops etched leather cuff - so incredible!


Both bakeneko and I loved a wicthes silhouette we found on Pinterest and I love what bakeneko has done with it - turning them into bookmarks - gotta love Granny, Nanny, Magrat and Greebo!


Lots of stickers and transfers of the librarian, one of my favourite quotes, Ankh-Morpork watch coat of arms, 2 hippo bookmarks and some Nac Mac Feegle's!


And last but not least a lilac embroidered pouch in which bakeneko sent some coins. We agree to swap some of our countries money which was an excellent idea bakeneko!! My husband has already snavelled it for his collection


Thankyou so much bakeneko for taking on an overseas swap partner and crafting such gorgeous items for me. I enjoyed making your crafts as well and hope they get to you soon (thanks for being so patient  Wink)

Woohoo - it arrived. I am glad your goodies can be put to good use  Grin it looks a little chilly where you are. I love getting to make scarves and wrist warmers for people as it gets so hot here I hardly get to appreciate them. The Death knitted pin was fun to make. Thank you so much for being so patient. Lady4feet - you can finally close the swap  Shocked bet you thought it would never happen  Wink this gallery has been so incredible!!

lady4feet's package from dontneedaclassroom is beautiful. That plaque is amazing and the little Death and Susan figures are cute, those paper flowers are very sweet too.

lady4feet's package from myloveasdeep is very thoughtful. The happy hogswatch display is great I love the consideration that's gone into it and the portrait of Death is marvellous, just the thing to go up in Death's house. The badges are ingenious too.

mylovesasdeep's package is fabulous. The teeshirt is so much fun and the shrine to Anioa is just perfect. I now want to paint one in the back of each of my kitchen drawers. The necklace is lovely too.

dontneedaclassroom's package is wonderful, the embroidery is gorgeous and you're right, the horse charm is just the right thing to set it off. And congratulations on your membership of the Watch, you know that wherever there's a policeman, there's a crime- be on your guard. Wink

whenindoubtsew's librarian box is amazing, so very special. I love the lilac pouch, such a delicate flower for a dreadful day. The stickers and bookmarks are brilliant too.

Bakeneko's package is great, a lovely scarf and fingerless gloves, just the thing to be seen in in Ankh Morpork. The death badge is splendid and dried frog pills! How wonderful - I could do with some as soon as I go back to work.

An Anioa shrine in your kitchen drawers would be awesome! What a wonderful idea.


And an extra Yay!! for a flake free swap!! Thanks to all of you lovely ladies for participating and being such wonderful swappers.
