I have received an amazing parcel from the talented mrraawwr Grin
Take a second to prepare your pinning fingers....
Here is a Yoga bag with one of my bestest favourite creature: the Green man. The other side has some ribbon flowers and have a peep at the lining!
the colours are a lot better in real life

She made me a fabulous mushroom pincushion with a snail on it (and plenty of room to hold all my pins!)

And a crocheted stone pendant WITH REAL PRESSED FLOWERS Shocked

There was also some incredibly cute dragonflies for my garden (shown here in my upside down courgette)

and this jaw dropping handmade card

and this succulent pot of jelly (reminded me of the hours I'd spent sucking on lilac flowers as a kid Smiley )

There was also a US army FQ which will make a great something for my boys. Here is a picture of the whole lot together

As you can see I have been well and truly spoilt  Cool Thank you so much mrraawwr!
Now I just have to bite my nail and hope my partner likes what I made for her

back to quilting...hurray and I dusted my art material Cheesy

La Chapa sent me an incredible package a couple days ago!

She made me tiny little kodama (for my house plants), a lovely luna moth broach, and an awesome cross stitched mushroom magnet!

I love the little pudgy one. <3

I also received an amazingly detailed mushroom pendant on a chain, and another kodama! This one is hanging from my rear view mirror in my car. Cheesy

Last and most astonishinglycoolest, this free-form crochet shoulder purse.

Oh my goodness, I can't even explain how perfect this is for me. All my favorite colors and all the cool textures and the softness and the wee mushrooms and the curlies!! I have no words.

Trying to show all the different stitches:

Thank you so much, La Chapa; you rocked this package! I'm working on finishing up yours right now, sorry for being so late. I hope I can match your awesomeness.

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!

Sooo, I was concerned that I would not be able to post my goodies from kaitibeeps in the next few days, but I found a way and so glad I can now show off the wonderful things this FIRST TIME SWAPPER made. She hit the nail on the head with my interests.
First up...

beautiful cards for me to use (isn't it, like, impossible to actually use these when ya get 'em cause they are too pretty?) My fave is on top.

Do not know how she knew I had just used up my last post-it, but here is an adorable owl set. and dangly earrings, my fave type. Nice and light. good for my lobes because I have been wearing heavy ones lately and they need a break!

Now THIS is a very very cool creation...

she is a fox! Check out the fluffy tail. I really love this paper doll. kaitibeeps has put alot of great details in this swap and one of my faves is the wee stars that hold this cutiepie together. I would love to know how you made this, Katie. it sure came out great!!

This is an altered tin! Adorable wee mushroom house. There are what I think are tiny shroomie folk on the roof, a total squeeee detail.

Sweet deer, and a birdsnest (which is very very spiritually significant to me and I loooove  that she put it in)
Li'l black kitty peeking in the corner!!!!

I suggested that I could use a decorated blank book and kaitibeeps went one awesome step further and redid this garden journal!!  I am a huge gardener and can't wait to fill this up!!
I must know how this was done!! Gold shrooms on front, raised, and an extremely natural-looking cover with Nature's randomness of growth.
I am so very happy with my goodies, kaitibeeps. I can tell you worked hard on getting my likes and dislikes down. I can hardly believe this is your first swap. you rocked it!!

um,   yay?

La Chapa, LOVE that crochet bag, I've always admired freeform crochet and that is just amazing! Also, kodama!! so cute!
mrraawwr, such a cute package, esp. the pincushion.
kaitibeeps, lovely fox paper doll and great journal cover.
Enola, I adore that fairy village and the fairy houses!
I've gotta get pinning, you know? Cheesy
