Exciting news! My swap treasure has arrived from jan_on_ice.
I already knew she was a great swapper and of course she did not disappoint!  Cheesy
Look at this great stuff!

This is a felt needle book. Am I the only person in the world who doesn't have one?
Until now! Now all of the needles that had been lurking in my craft stash (and stabbing me under the nails @#$#%&^&@!#$@!!!  Angry ) have a safe place to stay. It looks like a fairytale story book doesn't it? It's a spellbook/needle book.

Each felt page is decorated with dragon's scales, snakes tongue and other magical ingredients. The way it closes is ingenious too. the felt tongue goes under the felt loop, just like a leatherbound book, but in felt!

The next item is a Wyrd Sisters clock - hand drawn! I'm pretty sure jan_on_ice drew this herself. She's that talented.

Now, jan_on_ice didn't know anything about Terry Pratchett's comedy/fantasy books or the three witches who star in his book Wyrd Sisters, but she went for it - and did a great job! It's hard to visualise something that is in books, and never illustrated.

Another thing I needed was a knitting needle roll to store my knitting needles.  Here are my knitting needles (ok, only some) looking very at home in their new roll.

"What's so fantasy about that?" you may think. Well look at this amazing fairytale fabric!

I loved it!!! Grin look at the little cottage, the acorns and the toadstools! I love toadstools! I Love oak trees! I love cottages! This fabric is totally me!

You can never have too many keyrings. Especially when they're as useful and handsome as this one!

Its Westley from The Princess Bride. Only my favourite fantasy movie EVER! (well, Lord of the Rings might have budged it over a little). And even better, look what's inside:

A great Princess Bride quote. The keyring is a tin you can store things in! How great is that?

But wait! There's more! More Princess Bride loot! You too can have a Westley of your own with this black fabric mask!

 As jan_on_ice points out in her letter - guys are sexier with masks on! I love this! It was the funniest thing, when I opened it I knew exactly what it was and I couldn't stop laughing! I never would have thought of such a thing! It's like having a piece of Westley for myself! *sigh*   Kiss Now to find a man to wear the mask...  Wink

And now a new theme. I'm pretty sure I never mentioned Harry Potter in any of my swap info, but I've probably mentioned that I've read the books (up to Order of the Phoenix) and have friends who are HP mad.

It's a self-inking quill! It's really comfortable to write with and look at the gorgeous tag on it. It's got beautiful font and aged with tea or coffee. Excellent presentation!
With it came this Gryffindor zipped pouch. I really like the ribbon handle idea.

And inside this cute pouch ...

SWEETIES!!!! Puking Pastilles, Fever Fudge & Ton Tongue Toffee! If you've read the books you know what I'm talking about. If not lets just say, they are magical sweets that the Weasley twins invented to get you out of classes! (Well except for Ton Tongue Toffee - that's more of a revenge item) Sorry I don't really show the sweets themselves, but I was more focussed on the beautiful tags.
Needless to say the sweets are all GONE now.  The toffees had melted into one huge multi-flavoured toffee gobstopper... but it was still good! Mmm mmm. Roll Eyes
And as well...

A catalogue for more items from the Weasley twins' shop - Weasleys' Wizarding Wheezes! It looks fantastic!
Here's a close up because jan_on_ice went to so much trouble to make it look magical. Beautiful fonts and aging with tea or coffee.


I am one lucky swapper! Now I have swappers anxiety again! I hope jan_on_ice likes her stuff as much!

P.S. Thank goodness I know from experience to save a copy of my image heavy posts as word documents before I press "send"! Craftster always crashes just as I finish a wordy, image heavy post and press "enter"!!!!  Angry

That stuff is so awesome! So much too! I think I love the Weasely Wizard Wheezes menu and candies the best, then the mask and keychain are cool too, and the Gryffidor bag ......actually, I could sit here for awhile talking about all of them.  jan_on_ice you have crazy talent

Everyone's items are so awesome.  The Wyrd Sisters clock is too cool.  SlyGrimalkin, how did you make the wings.  They don't look like the pantyhose type material you see most wings made from.  My fiance's niece will be wearing fairy wings in our wedding and those look so neat.  I've been trying to decide how to make hers. Smiley

These are the items I made for Kasie.  I made her a matching knitting set with The Last Unicorn images.

The bag has pictures of the Unicorn and Amalthea on the front, back, and inside pocket.  The needle roll has a dual image of the Unicorn and Amalthea on the outside and on the inside (which I forgot to take a picture of) has pictures of Schmendrick and Molly.  I'll have to check my camera and see if I still have all the pics...I could have sworn I had taken at least one of the inside.  I also added some rose quartz stitch markers in a case that had Amalthea transforming on it and a necklace with a glass marble fairy pendant.  I couldn't get a good picture of it...the flash killed the image of the pendant everytime.

I had so much fun crafting and I love the things Kasie sent me.  Hopefully I'll remember to bring my camera home from work tomorrow so I can post pictures of my goodies. Smiley
