Okay everyone, post your goodies here! (ooh, that sounds vaguely naughty, doesn't it? i mean the stuff you receive in the *swap* of course! haha.)

and i know it's not good manners, but i will go ahead and boast that my package arrived already! yay! i received an adorable totebag, a cute rubber stamp, a CD of celtic music, and a fabulous necklace. i already wore the necklace to work today (my package actually arrived yesterday, but i got home late and didn't have time to post) and received many compliments on it. great job, and thank you to theatregirl25!!! here's the pics:

I haven't heard from my partner since she received on the 4th (according to the PO). I hope she liked it, I worked really hard on it.

First of all, here's what I recieved:

Two celtic knotwork purses (the black one has red embroidery that my flash apparently ate) - the cat did not come in the package, he just firmly believes he needs to be in every picture taken.


Stamped cards.


Super nifty button


Celtic knotwork wristwarmer.


Photo album - which makes me a little sad because it seems like everyone else is going to Ireland - my in-laws are there right now and my parents are going in about a month.  Maybe I'll just steal their pics Smiley

I'm going to have to guard the purses with my life to make sure my sister doesn't steal them.

And here's what I sent:


An Irish knotwork scarf, which I thought wouldn't get much use this time of the year, but seeing as it feels like early March in the midwest, I guess I was on to something.


Close up of the lace.

Miss_Cute_Boots:
Is that scarf your own design or is there a pattern?

miss_cute_boots, that scarf is gorgeous! when i thought of knitting and celtic knotwork, my mind went immediately to cable designs. it didn't really occur to me that you could make knotwork designs in lace. beautiful!

I haven't heard from bridgetbarcode in a while, but the DC# says that she received on Monday so I figure I might as well post pictures of the stuff I sent her.


A tote bag. It's hard to make out, but there's knotwork mixed in with the flowers on the fabric.


A green man t-shirt.


And a cabled scarf.

Rain, what nice job on the bag, very generous size just the size for me with 3 kids lol!!!
That scarf looks complicated, I am sure she will love it, you have put in a lot of time and effort.

my pc guy comes tomorrow so I hope to get my pics up and on the net soon.

i hope my partner got her parcel, i sent it express airmail, but she is on holidays, so ihope she is back soon to open it. lol waiting is hard.

I finally got back to my apartment and got to see the package from cyndiq that's been waiting for me for over a week!
Here's what she sent -

a velvet clutch/pouch with an embroidered Irish dancer, a hand towel with embroidered celtic knot horse (I love horses!), pin cushion with embroidered celtic knot in some of my favorite colors, celtic heart bookmark, earrings, and a set of stamped notecards with coordinating pen

detail of the earrings - they're perfect for me!

Thanks again - this was such a great swap!,

I am glad it got there safely and you like it I hope.
I searched for a long while to get the horse for you, they are not too common.
here is a closeup of the clutch zipper pull on the clutch purse. (my first clutch, new pattern so hope its ok).

you cant see but it has a cute celtic bead on it. The little clover is for luck in dancing, it is a free standing lace I make on my embroidery machine.
The book mark is freestanding lace that I also make on my embroidery machine.
Most embroidered pieces take about an hour to set up the design and stitch out, some biger things like lace bowls etc take ALL day. lol.
I hope u enjoy using the things for your dancing classes as you seem to want mostly that sort of thing this time around.
thanks for swapping, and watch out I am sending you a little thankyou koala in the post soon.
cheers cyndiq.

Oh and here is a closeup of the clutch, aerron does irish dancing and wanted something  small to carry things in for that. She wanted it decorated for irish dancing and on her wish list she asked for a pleated clutch or a black zipper purse. so i just ran with those ideas. I was lucky to find the irish dance girl silouette, it took a bit of searching. Its hard to read peoples mind, i hope you use it.  Wink



I wish I had used more green in this swap, as I realize aerron really likes irish green, i just went by her list of favourite colours. I feel bad.  Undecided

oh well, cheers and loved the swap, thanks for organizing.  Smiley

don't feel bad!  for a several reasons, i just have a LOT of green fabric (anyone who wants to swap for some clover green garbardine, let me know!  Tongue), so i took the opportunity to use it for the stuff i crafted.  there really are very few colors that i don't like, so what you sent was great!
