If you are prone to swap anxiety, you might want to skip over this next post, because amaryllisroze has outdone herself! We agreed to make each other Halloween themed OTTs. Look at this incredible little work of art! It's a 4" by 4" spiral bound book. I absolutely love it! My daughter took one look at it and said, "Oh, that's so you!" And she's right. It's perfect.

Here's the cover:

And here are the inside pages, spelling out "Halloween". I'm sure you would have picked up on that yourself, but I had to say it anyway.  Cheesy
I was only going to post my favorites, but they're all my favorites, so you got lucky here.

 ^ Sorry about the glare here. I'm sure you clown-o-phobics don't mind, though.  Cheesy

I'm sorry I had to make you jealous! amaryllisroze deserves a round of applause, don't you think? Thanks a ton, aroze. It's simply amazing! You know I love it!!

silk sent me the loveliest little deer, which i received right after my camera broke. I was borrowing a camera for a school project and took pix in my office on campus. I wish I had pictures of her deer, it's really the most darling thing ever.

meet lumpy the sheep:

i spun his "fleece" from raw (as in full of dung and hay) wool that i had. I soaked the wool washed it and "carded" it (by pulling it into big clumps) and then spinning it into lumpy singles and then plying it with itself. Then I knit it up into a sheep, which i made up as I went along. It's stuffed with left over roving, cotton and rice that i soaked in lavender EO so it can be used as a snuggley or a sachet Smiley

I received my OTT from sweetlysedated today!  What a great "first swap" item!  I love it.

Behold my beautifully crafted box with clay leaves on it and some leavy stitch markers to put in it!  (I wish I wasn't so "knitting challenged"!). 

The inside of the box.  Cute paper!

Thanks so much, I love it!!

I was so excited yesterday when the postman delivered my package, and even more excited when I opened it and found the most adorable little amigurumi ladybug!

I love it! Thank you so much Hoxierice!

Prepare to be very jealous  Grin

I got my beautiful OTT from Bobaily today. A pair of "infinity earrings". They are pink and sparkly just the way i like things.

The photo's dont do them justice (my fault) and I am wearing them now!

Thanks Hayley, great work for your first ever swap!

My partner received on Saturday - but as she has not posted pictures yet I thought I would put a couple up! I did pm her to ask if she minded but I have had no reply - so I hope this is ok!

I didnt make the bangle - but I made the dice on it - and the bangle has got lots more hooks so if she takes partrt in another OTT she can ask for charms!

I finally received my OTT! Here it is, a cassette tape wallet!

And Inside (the money didn't come with it. Smiley ):

My husband was jealous of this. Smiley And it came at just the right time: I was looking for wallet to buy!
I think I may add some embellishments to it when I have the time.
Thanks so much, MissNoemi! You were a great partner!

Hold onto your hats, girlies! Check out my tiny vintage cat by Rackycoo.
He's made out of a wooden bead and a wee flower pot.

Racky never ceases to amaze  me.

I got my OTT from Luxielou yesterday!

She made me an awesome duct tape wallet, inspired by my wist. The koi came out great, and it's just the right size for money and ID which will be great for going to concerts or wherever. I can't imagine cutting all those little duct tape pieces out Smiley

Thanks again Luxielou! I love it Smiley

My partner received a while ago, and since she hasn't posted yet I thought I'd go ahead and do that for her. She requested stitch-markers and said she liked fruit, so.......

Fruity stitch markers (or charms... whichever)! (It's funny, because this is the 3rd swap in a row that I've made stitch markers for. But my partners keep requesting them, so what am I supposed to do?!)
We also decided to do some personal tiny swaps on the side, so I made her a melted bead dish and an ATC-sized patch. But since this was strictly a "one item" swap, I won't post the others.
