Ooh! Just thought. It might be really fun to write down affirmations or poetry and such onto paper to roll up and stick inside the body!

Inside we find 2 hand dyed bits of cloth which I will so be incorporating into my latest prayer flags project.
A really curious nut shell (what an earth is it !!!( I love it, so does my eldest !) HAnd made soap, a little hand sewn patch of a fish - which again is so going on my prayer flag (unless the littlest pinches it), some lovely orange lace ribbon, an owl pin, and my needle book...........

Yay! I wasn't quite sure you'd like it all, to be honest. It felt kind of hodgepodge and I didn't have time to wrap anything, either. The fabrics and lace are all eco-dyed; one with oak leaves, one with onions, and the lace with annatto seeds. The shell is from a native tree here in Tennessee, USA called a black walnut. They usually have a lot of spiky, woody bits sticking out, but this one was tucked away by a squirrel and forgot about for a couple of years so it's been smoothed out some. (It also sprouted a tree!) I love collecting them and hoped you'd enjoy one.

I also forgot to say that the head on the butterfly is removable so you can store really big needles inside the body instead of the pages. It can just be glued in place instead so it can have another purpose if you like. Smiley

Thank you!  But I'm still just learning.   Shocked  Look at the huge puckers in that fabric - embarrassing!   Tongue

Your work is beautiful! It really should have its own post, I think. If the puckers really bother you, though, you could look into damp stretching your work before mounting it and that would likely get rid of them.

I got totally spoiled by P_E_S_T and I love it all!

Picture of everything together, all on top of two lovely embroidered cloths. I will likely cut them up for my in-progress 1-inch hex quilt top. They will go very nicely with the lace and vintage fabrics from my great-grandmother's stash that I have put together already.

Felted, embroidered cuff that both I and baby love as well as wrapping ribbons.

This needlebook is so awesome and will fit my varied needle collection perfectly!

pincushion from upcycled egg cup, wooden leaf for my birdies to chew up

card, feathers, and handspun nettle yarn (LOVE the yarn especially!)

There was also fudge for the hubby, but I handed that over and haven't seen it since.

Thank you so, so much! I hope you enjoyed your bits and bobs as much I enjoyed getting this package!

Whew, internet works again! Comcast has been having issues in our area for several days and our internet has been out more than on. My package was sent out. I have a photo of the postage receipt if needed, but I was an idiot and forgot to photograph the package contents before sending. The package included needlebook, a couple of cotton fat quarters I dyed, and a few tiny treasures in a tiny baggie.

I do not envy your ear infection at all. This weekend was also a bust as far as swap-related making. I spent all day Sunday cleaning and reorganizing my crafts supplies in the hope of finding the turn crank for my polyclay pasta machine with no luck. Got a couple of UFOs done (hello, cushy cedar-filled dog bed! now Zombie can stop trying to crawl into my bed to get comfortable and the fleas will stop taking over), but it was the most frustrating kind of accomplishment because I couldn't get on to what I wanted/needed to do.

Finally found the crank handle at about 11 last night in a night table drawer in my room. Turns out my 2 year old niece had been trying to play with it when she visited back in March and her momma put it in there to get her to leave it alone. So now the next time I can convince hubby to take our kidlet for a few hours (hopefully tonight), I should be able to get some things done. I know it's unusual to have to use polyclay for a needlebook, but my plan won't work out without it.
