Aww, sucks that we might need an angel.
My partner said she recieved just before the weekend but shes gone to see her Mum and Dad so I have to wait until she gets back to find out if she likes everything. Urgh  Tongue

Sorry to keep you in suspense! I just picked up the package from the PO today and pretty much ran home with it!

Bubblegum_phoenix went with my burlesque theme, and sent me a fantastic package.

My yarn ball! It was just a little smaller than a bowling ball. There's a cute green button marking the end of the yarn.

Some loot! (I took pictures of the unwrapping, but trust me, they were several in number, and you don't wanna deal with that loading time lol) Two button combs, some little jewellery charms, and two lovely pairs of earrings. They're sitting on a T-shirt that reads "Love"....unless you're looking in the mirror, then it says "Hate". You did a great job on this Bubblegum, it came out great!

A lovely ruffly scarf, some coasters and two sequinned combs.

Lipbalm and lipgloss in a fab colour, lemongrass soap, cocoa butter lotion (I loooove cocoa butter!), Tim Tams, which are like British Penguins, and a lovely crochet sleep mask with eyes!

A notebook, pasties (with all the sequins sewn on by hand! I am in awe of you!), false nails with lacy tips (very cute!) and circular needles.

The yarn and the pattern. It's pure wool and it smells like sheep! Cheesy (I don't see many sheep living in the middle of London lol) I love the pattern, I told Bubblegum that I like bags with a fat bottom and she chose a fantastic pattern for me.

My favourite bits...

A necklace with a tiny corset pendant. How adorable is this?!

A NARWHAL! As soon as I realised what this was, I freaked lol. I am completely in love with him, but I haven't thought of a name for him yet. Any suggestions?

I also got a NZ postcard and a kiwi pen, but I didn't get pictures for them for some reason...
Thank you so much Bubblegum_phoenix! I think this has been my favourite ever swap, and I can't wait for the next round!

Sarantha was worried that it would be too much sheepy.............but it wasn't! Cheesy I love them  Grin Grin Grin

The yarn is so soft & is for either a crochet shawl or a pair of crochet socks. I'm still deciding.............. Undecided

 Kiss KissThankyou sarantha for a fab swap!!! Kiss Kiss

I finished unwinding the ball Burgz sent me! It was a hard job, there are 7 balls of yarn! Yes, 7! She chose my games theme and she totally got my style!

Here is everything together, the yarn, the pattern and everything that was hidden in the MYB!

The pattern she chose for me is totally awesome! It's an afghan, a Nintendo star one! And I love the colors too.

Here is everything that was in the ball: Monopoly magnets, heart bookmark, ring and necklace (that makes a rainbow with all the colors!), a slinky ball, game pieces and dices stitch markers, yummy smelling soap and lotion, a snakes and ladders travel game, a lemon lollypop and an awesome crocheted Pac Man ghost keychain.

Here is the little guy eyeing all the goodies  Cheesy:

Thank you so much Burgz! I love everything, you totally spoiled me!  Cheesy

Everything still in it's box Cheesy She sent two types of yarns for....

two types of patterns!
One's a "Pig-a-ma-jig" Piggie, and the other is a scarf pattern (of a scarf I've been longing to do for a while now, but just never "got around to it" lol!)

Pig themed ball!!
Goodies in the ball: Reusable tote bag, Carved pig stamp and ink pad, flying pig earrings (ADORABLE!!) Pig needle book (I REALLLLLLY needed one of these!) and "PIG" scrabble magnets Cheesy And she even included the safety eyes for the pig pattern Cheesy

Art themed ball! She even put in her note to me that crochet is an art, too! Totally agree!


Drawing pencils, bamboo crochet hook, "Crochet Queen" metal bookmark, earrings that say "Create" and "Love", Artist bracelet complete with paint palate charm!, colored pencils, plyable eraser, "DRAW" scrabble magnets, pencil sharpener, and blank ATC cards xD Definitely excited about the ATC cards! Been wanting to get into that for a while now!!!

I received today from Tygermane! She sent me inspirational running stuff (on shrinky dinks I think, so cool), some purchased running stuff, spa socks for after my big run, three knitting patterns (super cute hats and a KINITTED granny square) plus a learn to crochet book/kit (complete with patterns and hooks!) so that I can learn to make granny squares. Also, some granny squares for inspiration.

I love my stuff, thank you! And thanks, tar for organizing -- you ran a super great swap!

Without further adieu, here are pics:

The ball (the man I am a live-in caretaker for, who has a developmental disability, was SUPER excited and helped me unwrap for TWO hours (with a short dinner break) he said it looked like a "comfy pillow"):

What is it? (at one point C said it might be hotdogs...lots of funny guesses!):

All my loot (including some granny squares - I LOVE granny squares- and the softest most comfy socks EVER Smiley :

The crafted running inspiration (Stitch markers -- runner and go, markers or earrings that say 26.2, LOTS of magnets -- runner girl, run, 26.2, etc.; I especially love the keychain that says "I run in marathons, what do you do?"):

The purchased running stuff (water bottle, a shoe bag that folds up into a little pouch, wrist sweat absorbers):

The learn to crotchet kit -- yeah!!!!

I also received a Super Mario Brothers cartoon DVD that I forgot to include in the picture.

I also received some fun extras, 2 kinds of Japanese candies, bath beads, a fuse bead kit, 2 iron-on rhinestone skulls, coconut lotion and cupcake lipgloss.

Wow, Beefishie, you crocheted those purses fast! I tried to match the yarn to the FSU colors as best I could, I hope I did alright. The extra little red, blue, and white balls are for the Red Sox colors.

Here's a close-up of a few of the things I sent and the reverse side of the pencil pouch.

AND here is the fantastic MYB I received from Beefishie:

It arrived wrapped up in some beautiful fabric.

And here it is out of the fabric. Check out the cute headband! I love it. And the yarn is gorgeous!

I'll post more pictures later!

Slingmomma, yay! Did you really super enjoy spinning or what?
I got those frogs at Hobby Lobby, btw, for whoever asked...

I got my ball! She went with my purple theme and sent LOTS of yarn. Oh my, what to do with it? She didn't get the patterns sent so I didn't get to crochet it out like I wanted to, but it was hard enough just unwrapping with my Alice all over it so I guess it's just as well. All I know is I'm not allowed to get any more yarn until I clear out some of my stash: I still have a bunch from the last MYB swap and I've been spinning like mad, on top of the 3 drawers I already had! Here's the loot:

Store bought goods: some envelope stickers with my initial on them, soem note cards and a matching magnetic note book, some crayons, and a little turtle (I think in honor of one of my MOHs?)

Also included that I didn't get photographed were a skirt for Alice and a shirt for Russ, both purple!
Handmade goodies: small candle (not pictured), journal, earrings, stitch markers, book marks,turtle embroidery, necklace, car, hair bows, soap, potholder, mini pincushion, and my favorite thing was the purple tree pendant! I love it! Sorry there's not a better shot of it but sorry, I'm lazy. I'm not sleeping much these days.

Thanks lady!

I received my Awesome package from Edie22 on Saturday. Wow do I feel spoiled, she made two MYBs one in my spring theme and one in my coffee/tea theme, out of the most beautiful eggplant colored wool.
She filled them with all kinds of goodies and treats!(oops the beautiful butterfly hair clip is missing-it's already holding my hair)

I adore the flower scarf! The colors are so vibrant, and pretty, just like all the great goodies she crocheted. She sewed the cutest tea wallet, and coffee coasters out of corresponding fabrics, as well as a zippered purple paisley pouch that is just the right size for hooks and scissors.
All the handmade beauties:
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Teehee, it is a hook roll. I guess with the fabric all being the same the slots are a bit camouflaged lol. I look forward to seeing pics of your completed Elton!

Here's a couple of clearer pics of the loot:

I can't wait for your ball to get here! I feel like pouncing the postman everyday!!

So much awesomeness in one gallery!!!  MYBs are always just so fun and amazing!

I worked up the pattern that glambastard sent me last weekend:

I LOVE it.  You can't really tell in this picture, but the purse is huge and I love big bags.  I plan on lining it and adding a handle using black and white polka dot fabric, but with my wedding in one week and moving not too far after that I'm afraid that finishing the last bits of the purse probably won't happen too soon.  I WILL finish it though, it is far too cute not to.  Thanks glambastard for the awesome yarn and awesome pattern!!!  I am definitely planning on making the robot you sent me too, but again time is a little constrained right now......
