After some nervewracking post-office drama, I received today from Lootyaj! It was doubly nice because the package came right as I was on my way out the door. So, without further ado, pics:

She made me this gorgeous bracelet that goes with two of my themes! The beads are green and reminded her (and me!) of mermaids. I took this picture while watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics. :-) It actually matched what I wore today, so I've already worn it.

And we chose to do swap another small item as a personal swap. She sent me this stamp that she carved and that I LOVE!

As you can see, it's already gotten some use.

Thanks, lootyaj! I love both items so much!

This is *gorgeous*. The yarn really makes it. It's subtle but it has so much depth.

I've been thinking about a handspun Clapotis myself. What was the final weight/yardage of the yarn that went into it?

Aww, I wish I could play but I have a *huge* conflict coming up smack in the middle. Round three, anyone? ;-)

I'm sending tomorrow. I meant to send yesterday but I started a new job and had to deal with all that craziness.

Make it into a necklace! Start a trend. It'll be the new owl.

Just kidding.

Whew! This *just* came off my wheel. It's organic cotton spun with recycled sari silk and shredded sparkly fabric, then plied with gold thread, hot pink seed beads, gold beads, and embroidery thread. There's also one gold AB Swarovski crystal.

Everything is so beautiful this week, but I *love* Fluorite, Urban Apple, and all of Jadzy's corespuns.

I chose:
1. Glitter
2. Green
3. Burlesque
4. Mermaids/oceany

And my fifth one escapes me at the moment.

It's interesting to see other peoples' themes, because I almost chose some of them before I came up with my final list.

manicmaiden, I love your yarn!  The natural colors just speak to me.  The heathered look is gorgeous!

I took my wheel (Sonata) with me when I flew down to OK last week (carry on).  Yes, it fits in the overhead compartment of the larger planes, but needs to be valet checked on the smaller ones.  Found out it is a very sturdy wheel.  On the last flight (small plane, valet check), I came off the plane and it wasn't with the rest of the valet luggage   Shocked  I saw it being loaded so knew it was there but the attendant said all the valet luggage was off (and I saw my checked luggage rolling down the conveyor).  Finally, it came out of the plane (meaning it was probably thrown to the front.  As it was coming down the conveyor, it FELL (about 15')  Shocked Shocked

I told the attendant that it better not be harmed as it was over $600 wheel and flyer (woolee winder).  She didn't even change expressions.  I unpacked it right there and my beloved wheel was sound.  PTL!

During my layovers, I was able to spin up some blue/purple/pink BFL and 4 oz of purple/pink/cream bamboo & soysilk from hobbledehoy.

No pics though - my boys are off to Gettysburg PA to reenact in the civil war battle and have the camera.

My boyfriend's mom lives in Gettysburg and reenactment time is *no fun* if you aren't a tourist. Also, heads up for anybody going to Gettysburg: Misty Mountain Fiber Workshop on Chambersburg Street is going out of business and they always have lots of local roving.
