So my husband finally returned from his business trip away and brought back my camera - woo whoo Cheesy

Here are the lovely lovely items Kate made me.

This one is for my daughter, and her Littlest Pet Shops. She loves it, and has already tried to smuggle it to school, lol... kiddies

I love them both, the quality of your work is fan-flipin-tastic (I had to bogan it up, just to represent how great and Aussie it really is, lol)

Oh Lilibet, I hope your cousins are now safe at home and recovering. What a horrible thing to happen.

I have some photos to share (some are from the very beginning of the swap)

Ok so just a few to start with, I have some more to come, of The Gold Coast and Lego, a small trip to Sydney and some Random fun photos. But I'm worried about flooding the gallery with too many photos at once... in a few hours I'll add the Gold Coast ones Smiley

P.S I love SmileBox Smiley

I've received a bonza parcel from Alatarial. They are all so pretty and so to my taste's. In fact I feel so in love with what she sent me I feel I should send her more pretties as a thank you...

Hair Accessories Swap by Hooked on me, on Flickr

I'm sorry about the photo's my camera is being a bit naughty. Which annoys me as one of my fav pieces hasn't shown up nearly as lovely as it is in RL. The little black one's are beautiful too - I can see myself wearing them to work.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. For such a beautiful parcel Smiley

I received a parcel from Luckdragon this morning and it was wonderful Smiley

IMG_8515 by Hooked on me, on Flickr

Luckdragon sent me 4 balls of yarn - that I have been wanting this yarn for a while and have to contain myself until I send off a few swap parcels, lol. I already have a pattern in mind for this yarn, a pattern that I have been waiting for ages to work up Smiley

I also got, for my son's room, pirate appliqus. They have been made by luckdragon and her talent is amazing, they are better then anything I could have expected.

Thank you so much Luckdragon Smiley

Can we use a LV that is longer than 8" if it can be squished down or folded to fit?

I was wondering this myself. I just realized that the LV I've been working on (a jellyfish) is over 8" because I made some of the tentacles a bit too long. Tongue What's the official decision on this rule?

Below is a picture of Bubbles as I sent her off last swap.

The longer spiral tentacle (the one on the LV contract) makes her length nearly 12". But the bell or head of the jellyfish is just a wee bit over 4" round. When she is all squished up Bubbles is about the size of a mens pair of socks folded.

I can't wait to see your Jellyfish - Bubbles will be very excited to have a Jelly buddy  Cheesy

Hello, I've sent my questionnaire off and now to post a pic of Bubbles.

Bubbles is a fun love Jellyfish. Who is ready for her second LV trip away, she came back very excited about all things New York last time and is currently sleeping in our layered fruit stand - you might think I'm heading toward some "Big Apple" pun but thats just where my 6 year old daughter left Bubbles  Roll Eyes

I collected the Jet yarn to make some felted bowls, shoe laces for my daughter a spongebob postcard and some buttons.

I received my package from Akkhima for Plastic canvas supplies and for Kanzashi flowers...

These are the flowers I received... Aren't they lovely. I haven't chosen a favourite yet. When I asked for these guys on my list, I indicated that I was going to make hair pins or shawl pins for myself and perhaps gifts, but I'm stuck at the moment... I don't know that I can let any of them go  Grin

I also received 8 sheets of plastic canvas which have already been ear marked for a victorian manor tissue cover I hope to make Smiley thanks so so much
