I got my package from lasandri today!



It's the cutest little deer (all hand sewn!) and a great crocheted brooch. I'm afraid that both my daughters have their eyes on this package. I'll have to keep it all close by!

Thanks, lasandri, and thanks for organizing. I can see getting a little hooked on instant swapping. I hope you get my package soon.  Smiley

that deer is cute, I love his little scarf!  Did you use a pattern from craftster (seems like a saw a deer around here someplace) or someplace else?

I received from kelsorama today - here's my loot!

A great tree art card, a cute little pincushion that attaches to your sewing machine, a knitted sachet filled with homegrown rosemary and lavendar, and some funny bottlecap magnets with Renaissance artists (Kahlua just had to get in the photo):

Here's a closeup of the magnets:

Plus! A tote bag with a Botticelli transfer on one side, and several clear vinyl pockets on the other - it will be great to carry my garden supplies to and from my community garden plot!

Thanks for all the sweet crafted goodness, kelsorama!

I didn't know it was a pin cushion, but as soon as I read that I started sticking pins in it off my sewing table!  Everything you made is cute, you really are a super fast crocheter!

I received from ptarmic wumpus today.  And I was so spoiled ...

The goodies are:
-a Linux "Tux" which I promptly named him "Linux"  Grin
-a sushi handbag from McCall 5011
-a hand-felted wool bag with needle-felted Katamari cousins which is so
-a brocade pouch with silk lining which I am going to store my knitting needles
-and origami penguins

I love all the goodies.  Thank you very much, ptarmic wumpus. Smiley

Alright! I finally got all my stuff today, which was really nice because I had to suffer through the SAT this morning....
check it out:


A great tote bag -- perfect for when I go to the beach later this summer.


3 kanzashi flowers(only two shown in picture), 2 pairs of earrings, and some stitch markers for my knitting (exactly what I've been needing. I've been using garbage twist ties for far too long.)


And here is the third kanzashi flower. I put it right in my hair as soon as I opened the package! And err... ignore the creepy eye thing I've got going on in the picture, ha.

I love everything, thank you!
And I agree with rackycoo-- I, too, am now addicted to instant swapping!

I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile. I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well. I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave. I will work work to elevate you, just enough to bring you down.

inside this perfect box was an awesome set of earrings & necklace in my absolute most favoritest colors:


and at the end, when i thought all was good and done, racky let me know that there was a tyvek pouch in there too!!! i have always wanted a tyvek pouch Smiley i missed it the first time around 'cause it was really flat and i thought the tissue around it was packaging Smiley it was a lovely surprise! here it is:

What a lovely package of goodies! I especially like the necklace/earrings set. Doesn't rackycoo have the most beautiful handwritting?
