Here's my wonderful stuff from moazogotl

A pink and black bird bag!  The handle is awesome, it's like thickly braided yarn? Was it knit? I don't know how she did it but I like it.

Next, a birding journal!  It's for me to write my notes when I'm in the field, birding.  It's exactly what I asked for!

And my absolute favorite, a vulture amigurumi!!!

I don't know if you can tell but she even used a different kind of black yarn for the little collar of feathers around the neck!  Here's another shot with his big brother (patiently waiting on my desk at work until mom gets the next arrival, another amigurumi vulture from bixby  Wink)

Thanks so much! I love everything!

and a little bird stuffy, which I will be using as a pincushion (maybe that's what he's meant to be?) And it all came in that super cute birdy box.  Cheesy I love it all, but am especially enamored with the cards...they're just so cool! 

Karen, I'm so glad you liked the package. The bird stuffie was intended to be used as a pin cushion. I packaged it too quickly and forgot to add pins in it so you would know that. Whats funny is that the cards were done last.  I had planned everything else, but felt I needed to add something else to your package and they were what came to mind.


I'm making a craftster quilt using the Bright Hopes block. Wanna swap a block?

Yay! I got home from work tonight to a big box of birdy awesomeness! I don't know if my photos even BEGIN to do it justice, and my swap partner was definitely too generous!
I absolutely love my new tote. What more could I want? Favorite colors and bird themed? Check.
Also included were a cute little pillow, a little stuffed bird of felt, birdy coasters, a WONDERFUL little birdy zipper pouch, and loads of wonderful birdy charmed necklaces. Not to mention the adorable "bird seed" card.

So completely cute! Thank you!

Yay, I received from giant squid! Thank you Christine! I will get photos once my beautiful stenciled (or silkscreened?) shirt gets out of the wash.

Okay. I have updated feedback for 8 swappers! If something is wrong with your feedback or status, please let me know! Smiley
