Cool TM patch!  Those nesting pouches are awesome, too!

I'm so glad you like it, craftaddchick! I have complete and total respect for you TM patchers after my first foray.

Yeah, I did do couching with clear thread Smiley

The Totoro felt bag and the TM patch and zipper bags are awesome!  I received today from LovelyMiss, and maybe I shouldn't have told her I was going to send extras (because she's awesome and amazing for doing all she does for the Nerd Games, and if anyone deserves spoiling, it's her!) because she totally outdid me!

First, the card.  Now, she doesn't know this, but back when I did a Stig Needlebook for the Movie/TV swap, I tried so hard to do s Stig silhouette and ended up having to go with a cartoon Stig.  She, on the other hand, nailed the classic Stig in her paper cut-out:



Then the supplies, which she said she intentionally went light on because I may have a slight hoarding problem (when two people inside a month have the same "whoaaaaaa" reaction to your craft room, you might have a problem...).  So, fluffy fluffy soooooooft yarn (I think I already know what I'm going to make with them!):

 

And an awesome bag of random bits and bobs, the which is so much fun!  I am positive I'll find tons of uses for them - I'm a huge sucker for "random bags" and whatnot:



And the crafts!  Oh, yes, craft*S*!  First up, a pretty pretty suncatcher, which I'm sorry I can't photograph in all its glory (well, actually only slightly sorry, because if it was sunny out today I think the heat would be complete unbearable instead of only mostly unbearable!):



And a handy Tardis-blue braided key lanyard!  That will be nice for carrying the key when walking the dog, since I don't always have pockets...



And a Pi hoop!  I admit to making a slight squeeing noise when I saw this, because my love for Pi knows no bounds, and it's just so cute!  I love the layers:



And there you'd think it was a pretty awesome package, yes?  I think anyone would be happy with it.  BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!  Behold, a mini-shrine of many many things I love, all eclectically jumbled together, exactly like the inside of my head:



I honestly could not tell you what my favorite part of it is, maybe the little square root of negative one clipboard... or the tiny little mushroom... or the books, oh my the adorableness of the little books!

I can't say thank you enough, it is awesome!  I hope you like your package half as much!  *chews on nails anxiously*

I love the useful-looking pouches that Calabaza sent; what a nice gift!  And I am avidly following the science patch collection that craftADDchick is accumulating - it's so fun to see all the different science-y things people come up with!  And wow, LovelyMiss!!  I'm starting to feel like my package wasn't nearly enough... that collection of crafts and supplies is incredible!  The silhouette is perfect, and that little personalized mini-shrine is really something special.

I received a fantastic package from Smeddley today!  First up are the card and a pack of mini canvases!  I have wanted some of them for so long!



The card had an ATC attached!  Here is a closer look at that...so cute!



What else was in the box?  A little Dalek and fantastic hoop!  I LOVE them both so so much!





As if that weren't enough, she also included a zipper pouch and a bunch of cute fabrics!



And a TON Of Fun Fur!  I am looking forward to using this for some of the Uthando dolls I am planning to make this Fall.



Thank you so much, Smeddley!  I truly loved my package, and I hope we get to swap again in the future!

Again, I'm so glad you like it!  And I did like mine...much more than half as much!  Cheesy


I'm starting to feel like my package wasn't nearly enough... that collection of crafts and supplies is incredible!

Your package was great!  It's all about 1) meeting swap requirements and 2) being in agreement with your partner about whether or not to send extras.  There is no need to compare what you sent against other swappers, especially since your partner was happy and you fulfilled the swap perfectly!  (Extras can get crazy...some swaps ban them, but I think they can be fun if you talk to your partner about it first.  Cheesy )

Thanks very much, LovelyMiss - that's all very good to know!  As this was my first swap I just wanted to make sure I wasn't skimping or anything!  But yeah, I'm glad everyone is enjoying everything so far! XD

There is definitely no need to worry from my point of view roler  Grin your package was perfect and very much appreciated. I love my Totoro felt badge and stash of ribbons - I am so excited to use them  Grin now for your package to arrive - I am so chuffed to be your partner for your first swap!!  Cheesy

And wonderful packages everyone - the crafts and supplies are all magnificent!

I am finished (I think -- maybe a couple tweeks tonight) -- and am hoping to mail Friday when I get paid!  Thanks for being forgiving & understanding with mailing late!
