1  Crocheted berries and cherries necklaces + earrings (updated) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lucertola on: December 11, 2005 04:36:17 PM
I crocheted some red and blue cotton thread around wood beads and thought to mix them with some gold plated charms.

Yay, I finally came back home and found a giant box from princessliak. It spoiled me with a shower of delightful gifts.
Lia is a climber and a mountain lover and had the lovely idea of sending me pictures of the places she loves most. I  wish I could see some in the future because they look truly wonderful.
The box was full of:  delicious candies and gums, there was a super soft pair of gloves (lia, it seems we had the same idea, ins't it?), two sets of lovely stationery (I'm really addicted to stationery!), scented bath confettis, several crochet magazines (here in Italy we don't have ANY crochet mag, can you believe that?! You can then imagine how happy I was to find these), gorgeous yarn skeins, lovely sewing supplies, pictures of stunning landscapes and flowers and a cd mix... Have a look!

Thank you so much Lia for having been sucha a great swap partner and for having made my day with these gifts!

Dearest SC,
please forgive my horrible pics. I've just come back home from a long vacation and I found your amazing surprise waiting for me. You never end to amaze me with your incredible talent and your kindness.
Unfortunately my boyfriend threw away the box where there was your address... But since the partner change has already started, will you be so nice to send it to me via pm? I'd really love to send you a "thank you note".
You have been such a treasure partner that I'd love to make something for you.

*Here's the incredibly beautiful owl pillow my SC made me. Can you believe I still haven't realized who my angel SC is?!*

*From left to right: a vintage beading magazine, assorted bath salts, a lovely letter, a hand sewn tiny pouch that contained a shiny ring in my favourite colors, one of the two beautiful hand sewn floral pouches that contained the bath salts*

Even there's no way to express you all the joy you gifted me and my gratitude, dearest SC, I want to let you know that you've been one of the sweetest person I ever met online.

6  SC I love you! in The Swap Gallery by lucertola on: July 08, 2005 04:00:51 AM
Dearest SC: I LOVE YOU!

I truly do! I received your package this early morning and kept saying "wow", "i love this lady", "look how amazing this is" and so on. How did you know I am covering my new house walls with pictures and prints?
You made one of my greatest wish come true with the gorgeous frame you sent me. Not to talk about the earrings and the owl necklace. Your taste is amazing. I am in love with the journal you sent me. Where did you find such a wonderful thing!?

After the end of the 1st part of this swap, I'd really love to get in touch with you to send you my personal thanks for your generosity. I am truly grateful to you for these kick-ass gifts. You rule,
thanks for all the joy you gave me!

7  Summer bags and totes (lots of pics!) in Crochet: Completed Projects by lucertola on: May 28, 2005 11:52:23 AM
These are some of the recent totes and bags I've been working on lately.
Most of them were made for swaps and presents for friends who needed something to carry stuff at the beach. I used a 100% very resistant cotton thread and worked with a tiny hook (2.50 mm, I think it corresponds to a US B) to obtain a thick fabric.

Today I received a super huge package coming from my partner SKN725
My wish was to receive anything sewed in orange.
I couldn't believe my eyes!
Sandra made some researches on the city I lived in and since she found out I live in the South of Italy, she thought of making me a coordinated beach set.

*This giant bag has a F on the pocket...*

*and can contain a big beach towel...*

*...together with a useful pillow!*

Do you think this is enough? Well, it's NOT!

*Sandra made me also a gorgeous tote...*

*...with an amazing flower...*

*...and even a personalized label!*

*Then she thought of making me a striking wristlet pouch...*

*...all embroidered and personalized!*
The package also contained a beautiful brooch (whose pic will be added after I reload the batteries) and a scarf. It felt like it was my bithday+Christmas+New year's Eve alltogether! I can't imagine how much work and time it took to make all these things.
They're so detailed and accurately sewed and designed... The things I sent her aren't even 1% as beautiful as these ones. I swear I never made such a breathless swap before.
Now, Sandra, I'm gonna make you some other things to tell you how grateful I am and how much I liked your presents.
