OK!!!! IT'S TIME! I received from Psoupdesigns the other day and I am in LOVE with the lovlies she sent my way Smiley

First off here is the box! I like to start with a pre-box-opening shot.

Here is the first thing I saw when I opened the box.... Delicious colors of wool felt!!!!!!!!!!!!! All colors that I don't have! THAT truly is a bonus Smiley

Here they are all laid out... and that's my knee, in pajamas Smiley tee hee

Next up, some safety yellow nylon! I have been wanting to try outdoor flags so this is great!

THen I pulled out a sheet of shiny delicousness.... It's a really nice knit with foil print on top.

Next came more colored nylon!!!! WOOHOO! What did you use this for, Psoup?

This one is new to me... It's like felt but one side is brushed so that it's really shiny and soft *hmm*

More felt. This one feels like the new ecospun felt <3

Horsehair which I use ALL the time! I was running out too! She gave me two packs Smiley

Then this one was a mystery... till  I opened it of course Smiley

It's tiny sew in tags that say "Professional Dry Cleaning Recommended"

Now for the overall LOOT SHOT!!!!

Awesome, huh? I know you're all jealous Smiley

Thanks psoupdesigns!!!!

MINE came!!!! I am so happy with everything I got!!!! There are 81 different fabrics - loads of circle fabric, little bit of corduroy (as QuiltersBlock has been keeping an eye on the fabrics I have been using lately...sooo sweet), a bit of trim, and the cutest little tin filled with different sized white buttons (LOVE it).

OK - photos  ---- then thanks....

First the box arrived - I grabbed my scissors and a glass a wine...

Then after pulling out the 81 different fabrics and sorting out the dots/circles and cord - I laid my new swag out....

look at all my circles...

Then the totally awesome button tin with buttons and trim...

My new cord...

My 2 favorites:

And close-ups of the rest of the wonderful fabrics....

Thank you sooooo much QuiltersBlock!!!!! I LOVED it all!!! Can not wait to create! I do believe that I will be making a patchwork skirt from only or mostly these fabrics (soon), which I will call QuiltersBlock in your honor!

This was fun.....peace out and happy swapping to all,
Elizabeth  ;O)

Look at these fabrics!  And more:
Some of the smaller items that spilled from the Chinese take-out boxes!

Thanks, Sapphire!  I will use, gift and enjoy this bunch of treasures!

This started as a personal swap, but we decided to bring it to this swap so we can share.  I got totally spoiled with this box!  We chose to do the large flat rate box and let me tell you .. atsuko knows how to pack a box!  

Here is the whole lot and let me tell you ... every single chalice was filled with goodies.

check this out!  I love pewter ... and atsuko got wind that I collected it and ask if I would like a couple pieces ... These are ALL different than anything I have in my collection! AMAZING ... I have had them for almost 2 weeks now and I am still grinning ear to ear!

some patterns for my daughter .. these will come in handy, as I am making a couple new outfits for her to pack for our trip.  Some, frog closures, zippers, velcro,  and a few of the beads

a ton more jewelry making supplies and of course my daughtre *not being in the picture* ... I love kids!

there happened to be some great mother-daughter rings ... love these and so does my daughter

I am not sure where these came from or what I am going to do with them ... but the little princess and I both fell in love with them ... that is why she had to help me show them off

tons of vintage jewelry to remake ... and these are a few of my favorite pieces out of the bag

The pewter holds a place of honor in my home.

Thank you so much atsuko ... I love this package and I feel like I got the better end of the deal on this swap!

various trims, a grommet tool, a buckle, hooks & eyes, some zippers, several fabrics, a figure of a fabric bolt with measuring stick limbs, and a sheet of sublime stitching transfers.  ~funny thing, the kitty in the transfer is the one I 'borrowed' from the internet to use on my tags  Shocked

some rose paper, an ornament kit, papier mache snowman and stars, a tealight holder sequins, mini rope garland, lanyard hooks, and some apples (for my I spy pillows)

LOTS of fabric!!!

LOTS of miniatures for my I spy pillows.

There is so much great stuff being swapped!! I love the fabrics, but that clown thing scares the begeezus out of me!  Embarrassed


I received today too, from TheSaphpireMoon!!

There was no way to get everything in one photo!

Loving the fabric doll! I may try to do that this afternoon, while tyke's asleep.

A very blurry pic, but hope you can see everything:

You'll not believe, but I definitely have plans for that clothesline cotton! I can use it for drawstring bags!! (Seriously, I am excited about it!) Also, a bunch of hangtags for altering! I'm doing a craft fair in a few weeks...these will definitely come in handy!

This one shows the great daisy fabric, spongebob, a tiny bit of the crazy log cabin-like fabric, and the hardrock tshirt! There's also a plain black shirt for reconning. Yay!!

One more picture: this is my tyke at my older dd's wedding. TheSapphireMoon made the headband!

Sorry it's so small....it's cropped from a family portrait.

Thanks TSM!! What a terrific box!

I was totally spoiled by imwomn13! How she managed to get that much fabric into that postal box is beyond me! It was *packed* solid....

The light never got any better today, so just be aware that the pictures do no justice to the fabulous fabrics.

There are over 40 different fabrics (not counting the vintage squares!). It's all *yummy* too!

Yes, that's Strawberry Shortcake. And Ikea stripes on the bottom. Whoooo hooooo!

Sugar Skulls! VW bugs and vans! Betty Boop! Sesame Street!

Close up:

And a whole bag full of vintage 4x4 squares! I can't decide if they should be put together for a little quilt or used separately for applique:

imwomn13, thank you so much! What a fantastic package full of amazing fabrics! Thank you!!
