Uh-oh!  Do you need me to mail them to her?  I can.  I was wondering about those, but thought maybe you just knew more about owls tham I did. heehehe

Lol I was wondering about that too. . .

I thought maybe it was a joke on the show that had to do with owls or something. . .

Anyway, all of the stuff is super cute! I love it.

I'm loving the yellow of that bag, now that colour has to cheer up anyone's day.  The wallet, journal and earrings are all great too Smiley

I received my parcel today.  You won't believe how excited I was when I saw the postie was about to ring my doorbell with a parcel under her arm  Wink
KathleenAlice has made me some wonderful things and I've been grinning from ear to ear all day.
So pictures...
  The cutest wee stuffie who I can use as a friend or a pincushion but I think he's far too cute to stick sharp things into.

A knitting needle topper, to stop my knitting falling off.  How cute is he? Cheesy

The most amazing hat and scarf.  The hat rocks and the eyes of the owl on the scarf are googly.  The wool is so soft and cosy I almost wish it was cold enough to warrant me wearing these right now, but come winter I will be living in them Wink

Cute than cute little owl earrings.  Sorry this picture doesn't really do them justice.  As I told KathleenAlice I can already visualise myself fighting off big one from wearing these all the time. Cheesy

the prettiest wee top, look at all those owls!  I'm off to Florida/Disney on holiday next month so I see this top appearing in a lot of our holiday pics already Wink

Everything together, everything had lovely wee tags on them with notes. 

Thanks again KathleenAlice I love everything and I've so enjoyed this swap.  Now I'm itching to get my feedback so I can sign myself for more fun.

I think h_pets360's camera is still dead so I thought I'd post pictures of the things I sent her since she only got to post one preview picture of the whole package together.  

I screen printed a dish towel with a screen of two little owls that I actually designed long before I heard about this swap.

I hand sewed and embroidered this owl stuffie/pincussion

I made this wristlet with Japanese owl fabric that I found at a tiny Japanese fabric shop not too far from my house. Oh, and I embroidered the little owls in the corner.

My personal favorite thing I made was this apron.  I actually made another one first when we were waiting to get our swap partner info with yellow fabric instead of green.  But I decided I liked it so much I couldn't give it away.  So when I found out h_pets360 really liked green I made her another one in green.  I used the same owl screen print as on the dish towel.  The tie is made from this vintage mushroom ribbon I found at a thrift store in Idaho and the pockets covered in owls are made from a Japanese tenugui tea towel from the Japanese dollar store in Gardena, CA.

rozekitten- The bag is fantastic, as is the wallet- I just love the owl cable pattern! And I love the Owl earrings (he's my favorite cartoon owl), too (and funny about the other pair!).

tazzell- Excellent package you received! The tiny stuffie is too cute to stick pins into, and the needle topper is adorable! The hat and scarf set is absolutely fabulous and the earrings are sweet! And, I'm jealous of the top in the cute owl fabric (I just couldn't find any owl fabric anywhere- now that the swap is done,I'll probably see it all over the place).

Such cute owly goodness all around!!

And, I got my package from christinacoghill today! I'm supposed to be grading papers and on a temporary ban from Craftster until they are done, but since the ban is self-imposed, I figured that I could break the ban for a minute and post my pics.

Everything together...

There's an adorable crocheted owl stuffie, which is going on my desk, a macrame owl necklace (nothing says retro like owls and macrame!), a crocheted owl on a keyring, a panel with 2 of the knitted owl cables (it has a crocheted border, and I just happen to have the same yarn, so I may attempt to crochet a hat around it!), and a felt tree with 2 pairs of owl shrinky dink earrings and a two pairs of hair clips (owls and baby deer). I love how the owls are perched in the tree!

Here's a close-up of the tree with the earrings and hair clips. And, try as I might, I couldn't get a clear picture of the owl cables.

Thanks Christina for the great package!! Whoo-hoo!
