What a lovely package! The artwork is gorgeous... ^_^

As promised, here are pictures of the charms I got from Averia! I loved the sword pendant so much that I immediately strung it on a chain to wear today ^_^

I received TWO packages! So exciting. I could have hugged that mailman.

This was sent from MommyTheMaid. She sent me two project bags and some surprise yoga socks. They are so soft and warm and wonderful!

And I received my beautiful totebag pocket insert and an amazing assortment of mugrugs and cloth coasters from RSCowTown. I love them! Thank you so much. So beautifully made.

I am so loving this swap. Smiley

I received two packages!

First up, Anna.wahnsinn claimed me for a bag in my favorite style - the cross body hipster. It is amazingly well done - check out the zippers, of which their are 3! I love the fabrics both inside and the corduroy outside.

Second was a supply package from Sylvan. She gave me a couple large pieces of fabric - clearly taking note of my preferences in colors Smiley

She also sent some adorable and well made note cards

And something I always need that are very cute - embroidery floss bobbins

Thank you Anna.wahnsinn and Sylvan!

Hey schnerby, you are very welcome! I wish I made two right from the start, I wanted to keep that one so bad!

And as it is around noon here (more or less) I now have some daylight pictures for you from my combined 107/108 claims from Grab a coffee!

First, here is the beads/beading material with a Burda easy sewing magazine (in German, and easy is always good!) and a card plus closeups of the beads:

This is nearly a pound of beads, regular seed beads, rondelles, large seed, and twisted black bugle beads.

Do you see all that glittery goodness?

And then Grab a coffee claimed me for an infinity scarf in 107, but she must have had problems deciding on a colour scheme, so I got two!

A larger, slouchier one in black, white and grey:

And a tighter one in blue with blue, purple and teal flowers!

(okay, the picture turned the colours around; i swear that the scarf is basically blue, and the flowers are teal. weird.)

I'll have to defend these every day when I hand over or pick up my little one, it is as if you made them especially for our two daycare mommies!

Thank you so much Grab a coffee, I feel very spoiled, as always!

I'm waaaayyyy behind! My sincere apologies!

I received this earbud holder from Frosty772. I'm planning to put it in my dad's stocking at Christmas. Smiley

Thanks Frosty! I'm sure he will love it!

I also received a package from Watson, she claimed me for some coffee cozies and some vinyl cutouts

And she made them reversible!

I can't decide which sides I like better. :p

She also claimed me for some vinyl cutouts, so that I can give everyone in my family a piece of the lake.

So here is one of them on an ornament. I haven't figured out how I'm going to keep the sand from spilling out, but man does this look gorgeous even on its own!

She gave me a few extra for oopses, for which I am grateful! I'm going to have a bit of a job getting these done.

thank you, Watson!!

Thanks, both of you! I really appreciate these packages. Smiley

Averia, I am so sorry I just realized I never posted the pics of the Awesome casserole cover you made for me.
Below are pictures of the amazing black casserole cover that Averia made me

My dog Ruby is very clingy today and wanted to be in the pictures. So she acted as the casserole dish...

I also received an adorable mold to put hard boiled egg in.

I've received my two claims from sheepBlue today, and it is such a perfect package!

We had something Calvin & Hobbes and supplies, and a crochet cowl and jewelry, and here they are:

The most adorable stamp! I love this scene, and the stamp is so beautifully made, as you can also see from the print on the envelope.

A measuring tape bracelet, so cute! And it fits so comfortably, just my size!

Here is the cowl (with the roll of freezer paper, as I didn't take an extra picture or a group shot this will have to do) all fluffy and cuddly, with two big wooden buttons. So pretty!

An Anne cozy, fits perfectly! And it is so warm, hmmmm, good for a tense neck! And when I get a little time next week or so, I'll start on that freezer paper and try my hand at stencil cutting. I've been trying to decide on which shirts I'll practice, probably on my jammies first...

SheepBlue, thank you so much, I love it all!

(I just noticed, not pictured is the handmade card, it says hello... drat.)

And welcome back Watsonc7, long time no swap! I've been missing you.

eta: Hey wait, I had a fourth picture, to go with the Anne cozy, here is proof:

Hey guys,

I don't understand any word, what's happening Averia's son, but I hop, he is getting better soon. (I claimed you, Ave, maybe that will cheer you up a bit.. Smiley)
Anyway, I have got an awesome package from Gingerpeachy (I already brag about it in Facebook lol Smiley). She claimed me for Starbucks surprise, and I've got a big box of awesomeness!
A big Starbucks mug with CALIFORNIA ... I soooo love it! Reminds me, when I had my honeymoon there... love it soooo much!

Also, she filled the box with amazing things:
Beautiful blue fabric jelly roll:

2 strings of pearls, beautiful big ones:

And 2 tic-tac "containers"... - well, someone stole these instantly, so the rest of these are laying down at the top of the staircase right now Smiley

Ginger, thanks a lot for the package, I loooove everything!

Okay, so here they are: rscowtown claimed me for two floor pillow cases for my kids, and then I got some extras. But first let's see the claim. The pillow cases are huge, I didn't have enough material to stuff even the small one, but as you can see they work just fine for a start:

The little one (after having some yoghurt):

And the large one:

Do you see how proud my little one is? Although I have to admit it was hard to have her sit still long enough, she only just started walking on her own last weekend, an now she just won't stop...

Pretty cool for one claim, right? But there was more: A tote bag made from a pillow case, two band tees (Pink Floyd and Van Halen, I grew up with their music!) and the cutest christmassy mugrug!

The colours didn't come over quite right, the tote bag is rather more purple than blue... And here is another shot of the mugrug! This is actually my favourite part of the package, it is so cute and whimsical (and I'm the one who gets to use it!):

Thank you so much, rscowtown, we are going to have a lot of fun with your package for a very long time!

Jemimah sent me a lovely spoiler package! She claimed me for a piece of artwork for my kitchen. She sent all of this! The very special picture, a set of notecards, 2 brooches, a crafted notepad with wonderfully textured paper, and an all-included fox cross stitch kit.

Here is a close up of the picture. So whimsical, so beautifully done, such lovely color choices!

She also included these adorable hand made cards - 3 that have sewn patchwork hearts appliqued on and one that I refuse to use as a card and may frame and put next to the birds Cheesy

Also included are 2 lovely brooches - can't you picture Queen Elizabeth wearing them? I have seen the tutorial pictures on pinterest so many times - cutting petals and burning the edges. Jemimah nailed it

Thank you Kirsten!

i had purchased a kenmore in 83 when we got married, it lasted till last year when it more or less froze up on me. i had already bought a brother with 100+ stitches and that sat in the box for 9 months cuz i was intimadated by it and when the kenmore finally died, i got the brother open and love love love it! I also got a vintage treadle machine from the late 1800s or very early 1900s at a rummage sale about 2 blocks down the street from me, paid $60 the original price it sold for when new. the gal said she has several others, this one runs, i have not tried it, but its cool.

here are a couple pix of the old girl.....

some day I'll have her up and running Smiley

I received a seriously awesome basket haul in round 107! First our lovely organizer sent me a HUGE and lovely yellow ombre basket, and earlier this week these beauties showed up from littlefawnpug!

I tried to wait and kept some pictures when the sun was out but when you leave the house before 6 am and don't get home until after 7 that's kindof an impossibility  Tongue

Still these are lovely and I got a few detail shots of the green and pink baskets:

Thank you so much, littlefawnpug! I absolutely loooooveeee the green one- it's going to be perfect in my living room and I didn't even know I needed that color Wink

I was seriously spoiled in Round 107! I think I'll have to join up in the next round just to return the love! Smiley
