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.

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

2/18/12 - I no longer have the directions for wrapped pens, I lost them several years ago. To obtain them for yourself, do like I did, contact DMC threads directly and ask for them.

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!
