The 'Northern Lights' bag is fantastic.  I love this swap, everything has been really great and I wish I'd been in.

Oh how I wish they were pearls on that bookthong - unfortunately, they are but beads, but what I told you was true - I've had them for over 10 years. Smiley

Apologies for the extra reading material I sent. I've often found that people who aren't Australian or Kiwi don't know much about Australia apart from Melbourne, Sydney, and beach; so I thought I'd share some knowledge. 'My' Australia is different to that, 'my' Australia (at least in my childhood) is the Murray and the mountains, and the rural countryside, and drought drought drought. (We're into our 10th year of drought now. Melbourne is expected to run out of water sometime in the next 18-24 months, apparently).

I hope you enjoy the books. I can't tell you how much I enjoy them - especially Pastures of the Blue Crane.

oh, yeah, I forgot the reading material. I will read it after the book, that's how I always do. I have the imagination from the book, and then I read the facts to see how much I imagined the same Smiley

she sent a beautiful handpainted spanish style vase/pot, mexican candies (im eating one as we speak and it is YUMMY), an awesome beaded bookmark and the book is Burro Genius by Victor Villasenor (available at: http://www.amazon.com/Burro-Genio-Victor-Villasenor/dp/0060566833/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-1617820-5127218?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1174440344&sr=8-1)

and heres a closeup of the vase...its just gorgeous!!!

MissNewEngland completely nailed me and chose an awesome book!  Ive already started reading it and I am enthralled (or will be moreso once midterms are over)

Thanks so much!!!

Finally received my package from swaantje (stupid postal systems!), and it was really cool. I haven't got pics yet, so I'll just tell you what I got.

My book was The Eyre Affair by Jaspar Fforde
( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Eyre-Affair-Thursday-Next/dp/034073356X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/202-0938753-7652652?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1174724565&sr=8-1 ) Which sounds really good, I'm so looking forward to reading it.

She made me a crochet hook roll (something I really needed), and it's decorated with dodos (which feature in the book apparently). I've put all my stuff in it already and it's working really well. Plus dodos are cool!

The bookmark is printed on felt with "WARNING: READING MAY LEAD TO LOSS OF STUPIDITY"; she also hollowed out an old book and filled it with adorable little felt beads and a couple of tiny book charms.

Thanks swaantje!

I loved The Eyre Affair! Apparently there is a series of books featuring Thursday Next (the main character) but I've only read the first two.

That's the book I got in this swap too - I finshed reading that very weekend. It is really a great / fun / clever book.

I got my package from Knightswhosayknit!  She did a wonderful job!  I don't have pictures yet, but I'm using the bag she sent today.  Smiley  It's a great bag and suits me perfectly.  I had asked for something recycled, so she made me a bag from a lightly felted sweater--it's a light, soft black wool with a very nice hand, and it's lined in burgundy fabric, so very sturdy.  It's nice and classic (I don't like frou-frou bags) and it's the perfect size and colors! 

She also sent an absolutely gorgeous knit lace bookmark in a dark maroon wool, plus some cool paint chips in colors I like.

And TWO books!  A Room with a View, which is an old favorite, and The House of Mirth, which I haven't read yet. 

Thank you! My husband's out of town for a few more days, so I'm looking forward to some uninterrupted reading time tonight!

wow- it seems like this swap is about finished! I have updated everyone's feedback, so please let me know if yours still says "in progress" and I will fix it.

It seems as if everyone has sent and received. This swap was totally flake free  Grin
