THANKS to SAJONA for a wonderful swap package!.....the first one went missing in the international post, so she crafted me another package!!  Lots of crafting on her end...I sure hope that somewhere that first package is being enjoyed by someone....ahh the thought of lovingly handcrafted goods lost in space  Sad

anyways, here's the package:

I forgot to include the lovely trivit in the group shot, so her she is:

There were lovely tea towels, a tea cup, a book, potholders, a trivet, and a cute ice cream scoop!

I absolutely love the tea towels, so here's a close up of the detailed patches on them:

Thanks again Sajona for working twice as hard to make this a great swap!!

So, I received a fab package from girl0sun_9! 

The whole lot:

This great tshirt with the handsewn recycle arrows on it!  I love the color combo!!

A cute little jug of maple syrup!!  My kiddos already ate some with pancakes this morning!!

A great little jar of beeswax handcreme!  How did you know that the smell of beeswax is one of my most favored scents?  Heavenly for these cracked gardeners hands!

and my favorite of the lot, a great bag!!  Its huge!

Sorry the images are so cropped, I have to really edit the size so that they could be uploaded to craftster ( my hubby has a really fancy camera, so every pic I take is a ton of MBs!)

I absolutely love everything girlosun_9!  I hope to send out my package to you on monday!

19  Spinning stuff from Africa! in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by maiziemama on: March 16, 2008 02:20:01 PM
My hubby just got back from a business trip in Mali, West Africa, and brought me home the best gifts!!!

He brought some traditional spindles, made of clay and bamboo.

They are bottom whorl, supported spindles, the women use a bowl to spin them like a top.

and the most amazing bogolon (mud cloth) weaving, depicting a woman spinning!!  I love it sooo much.

Plus he brought back some Malian cotton for me to practice with!!

Definetely the coolest souvenier package ever!

I just received a fabulous package from Superhooker today!!  WHOA, girl knows how to craft and spoil a person...I love everything she sent.  The goodies are for my craft space/guest room.

Here's the loot:

She sent:

-two framed pics with images from a vintage child's sewing book.  Perfect inspiration for me and my craftster in training ( my 3 year old daughter!!)

-an amazing knitted pillow...its log cabin style and it is divine!! (see pic in above photo)

-a fabulous wooden sewing box she handpainted, inspired by my latest favorite fabric line ( Moda za za)  (see picture in above photo)

-a sweet pincushion!  (see picture in above photo)

-and my favorite item, a hand-embroidered wall hanging of a dress form.  Super cute!!!

I will show pictures of them in my new craft space....but I desperately need to clean it up first!!!  Its been a busy crafting week, and its a mess!!  These beautiful goodies from Superhooker will be a great inspiration to get it all in order!!
