my partner, crescentfresh, received but her camera poo'd out on her, so here are some photos of what i sent her.

some seed tape to plant in the garden

(unrolled a bit)

i was inspired by a cowl on her wist to knit this cabled neckwarmer

and this hat is straight off her wist

since she has a fondness for mushrooms and wall art, i thought i'd combine the two Smiley 

i'm so glad that you like everything, crescentfresh!  it was totally fun swapping with you!!

this is simply stunning.  i second the framing of it.  it would look so beautiful hanging on a wall.  gorgeous.

or you could stitch it on to the back of a hoodie for a completely unique and wearable piece of art.

leeska, those pillows are amazing!  the muted taupey colors are absolutely stunning.

sophieangele, the hoop is seriously impressive!!! 

and i've already added the braided fabric and cord headband to my wist Smiley

what a remarkable group of crafters we have!

there is sun this morning and i was able to get some pretty photos of the fabulous loot crescentfresh sent to me!

first out of the box was this little guy made from the prettiest fabric scraps

(he's already made himself at home in one of my plants)

then i found this amazingly detailed and informative mini-book about herbs and stopped to read the entire thing.

check out some of the killer illustrations

next i found these beautiful paintings in the most perfect colors.  they were even wrapped in a piece of pretty turquoise fabric that i've already got some ideas for...

then i found this necklace, made by another crafter but totally my taste, just the same Smiley

and finally, a wonderful mixed media bracelet - it's got pretty turquoise, white, & brown beads, some fabric, and (what i assume are leftover scraps of) leather.  it wraps around my wrist twice.  when i tried it on the first time, it didn't seem to fit, but the second time it fit perfectly!  huzzah for tiny wrists!

(it was a bit difficult to take pictures of my wrist but you get the idea of how it looks)

i love everything so much!  thank you crescentfresh!!!

woops!  i'm so sorry!  i suppose i should have checked through the thread before asking a question that's already been asked   Embarrassed

thank you for sharing that site.  that's actually the only site i came across when i searched for ruffle fabric but i guess i was hoping you might have known of some super secret site with great prices Smiley  wishful thinking, huh?

i'm going to check back through the thread to see if anyone else has dropped a tid bit or two about other places they might have seen this fabric.
either way, your skirt is so gorgeous that it totally looks worth the price of that expensive fabric! Wink

could anyone point me in the direction of where i may find this kind of beautiful ruffly fabric?  any particular website that you got it from?  or was it from a store?

i received an absolutely wonderful and exceedingly thoughtful package over the weekend.
please grab a comfy seat and a mug of coffee, and delight in these photos with me.  there will be alot.  fair warning.   Wink

i was seriously spoiled!!  my stalker even picked up some goodies for me on her vacation to England.  how lucky am i?

the first thing i opened was this lovely cigar box, featuring romeo y julieta.  love it!

and inside is a world of lovely whimsies & ephemera

(pretty papers with lots of birds, nature, & patterns, old postcards - one even has writing on it!, panda magnets, panda tissues, a mini jar full of delicate shells & a completely rusted bottle cap that i adore, tons of foreign stamps, train tickets, russian nesting dolls, and packets of seeds)

gratuitous photo of the nesting dolls because they're so gorgeous - the smallest one is super tiny.  my favorite!

and there were also some handmade things in the box too!

some almost-too-pretty-to-use plant markers

and some perfect amelie magnets

next i found these wonderful planting pots (that are too darn pretty to fill with dirt - i'm going to turn them into hanging lanterns for the backyard instead)  Smiley

what's in these beautifully wrapped packages you ask?

gorgeous jewelry!

a very pretty bracelet

a beautiful robin's egg necklace with pretty whimsies trapped inside



some much loved and appreciated extras:

my favorite (vegetarian) roasted chicken chips from the UK (!!!)
some gorgeous and soft yarn from the UK (!!!)
and a belt that is completely and absolutely just my style. 

and who could have sent me such a delightful, whimsical, lovely package??

the remarkable, thoughtful, & talented JacquelineD!!!

thank you so much!!  i love everything!!

i received over the weekend!!  it's quite grey outside now, with promises of it only getting more grey as the day goes on.  but i will be wishing and waiting for any small ray of sunshine to appear so i can take some pictures of the fabulous goodies i got.
