finished another test kit last night --
this is a lightweight yarn (wool) -- more of a loose decorative cowl,
but I think it turned out pretty well.....

5  Re: Spell My Name Swap -- Initials Edition 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kayrun on: December 09, 2016 07:10:22 PM
I have been SO spoiled by super-swapper quaggy!!

I knew when I saw the size of the box that she went overboard, and she did!!

First view when I opened the box:

All of the neat pkgs --
by the way, I just LOVE this wrapping paper!  Haven't seen any like it before, and I may just
be saving some to use in paper crafting soon -- so cute!!!

and finally,
Ta DA!!!!!!!

My initials are
K = Kris Kringle (and a Kit Kat bar  Smiley
C = Candy Cane doily (and Cool Blast mints)
G = Goodies in a mug (and a Grandma's cookie)

quaggy hand painted the ceramic Santa, and he is perfect!
I've got him on my mantle now, sitting on the sweet doily!
and then, she gave me the prettiest bee-themed mug (my dad's a beekeeper, so
this is near & dear to my heart) and not 1, but TWO Teesha Moore patches that she sewed!!  Her talents are neverending.....

I cannot thank you enough, quaggy  --
you have overwhelmed me with a tremendous pkg!
Thanks, thanks, thanks, dear friend!!

Kinder eggs......YUM!!!

surprises that this sweet swapper made for me!!

a wonderful zip pouch (will be great for holding knitting notions)
and a sweet mug rug!
so nice & quite unexpected!!  Thanks a million, dear!!

oh, I'm so happy that you like it, purplexime!
my first time doing a swap like this (I usually stick totally to knitting!)

(since I finally found the Gallery, LOL) --
here is the lovely envelope that purplexime sent to me!

(ugh -- my pics are crummy, so if my partner has better ones, please share!)
the envelope is adorable, and filled with cute pendant/charms and a darling flower pin!
Plus 2 rings!
Thank you so much!!  You are a great artist!

adding a pair of cabled boot cuffs (acrylic) --
will give measurements tomorrow

fit my calf snugly (approx. 15 inches around) -- these are meant to wear under boot
and peek out top (like so:  http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/SbutterAMfly/47618811/legwarmers3_medium.jpg....mine aren't quite this long, and would
probably work best with short boots (but I can easily rip back if you'd like the length longer; am also willing to work a larger circumference if needed)

also found some nifty to-do pads & sticky notes with designs to be colored

I just need one more point (but I'm hoping for two so I can snag those alien snaps). Hmm I'm heading over to my show to see what items I can discount!

(or offer some type of supply grab bag, perhaps?)
I think someone had success with that in a past round....

added a knitted beard to my shop (anyone need a costume??  Smiley
