I've got to say, I've got the most AMAZING package from jane feebles.
Oh the artistic talent and skill this woman has makes me jelous  Cheesy

Here's what I recieved:


-The most detailed, quilted wall hanging featuring 3 different patterned fabrics, bean beads, craft trim, and my hand-felted beads!
There's so much to look at and touch in this wonderful textural artwork. Any suggestions how to hang it? I want to have it on my wall, and I was considering putting a wooden dowel through the top seam. (My boyfriend loves it too and wants to participate in the next alchemy swap. Thanks fee Wink )

-A large, squishy cushion that's been entirely crotcheted out of hairy yarn I sent (both sides!)

-A hand crotcheted wrist cuff featuring these wonderful bean beads that I adore, but haven't been able to find a craft that does them justice. And my goodness has jane feebles done them justice!
She even used my most favourite green
Here's a close-up pic of her work



Thanks a million Fee!

Oh, I'm so glad you liked it all! The wall hanging came together literally out of the original package: as I pulled each thing out they just matched together like a jigsaw

And you'll have to tell me where you got the bean beads, and the crazy lime yarn. I just loved touching everything you sent, so many beautiful textures  Smiley

This swap has now officially ended

Cheers guys for an awesome swap with no flakers!
Everyone's feedback has been left, but don't hesitate to PM me if you have any questions or worries.   Smiley


Oh and Jane Feebles - the bean beads came from a necklace I found in a vinnies store. Sorry I can't be of any more help on that one, but the yarn was a lincraft purchase. It reminded me so much of oscar the grouch I had to buy it.
Pity I didn't have the skills to use it...

Nuts about the beans (har har)
I'm going to have to find some of that yarn, thanks Jane. I used every last scrap of it so it wouldn't be wasted- there's a 10 cm strand left over.
I have to make myself a grass pillow now  Smiley
