Great Britain. I had to seriously hunt someone down who could give me that info! I finally got to a person who could tell me anything, he said since it was sent by Great Britains Priority-type nail, it should be within three weeks. Seriously I got the run around for about three hours

Ah the joys of our great Royal Mail, they are famous for the erratic style delivery.  I can send something and it will arrive the next day (within UK) and I can send something (within UK) and it can take weeks. Sad  Internationally it's the same but not so much the next day Grin

My partner has received, so here's what I sent:


A felt owl ipod case.  This is the second ipod case I've attempted. 
The first one I made for myself several years ago and it didn't turn out well at all.  I was very pleased with the results this time around. 


Machine embroidered belt pouch.  I'm still getting the hang of my embroidery machine... I was disappointed that I wasn't able to use some of my own owl drawings, but I haven't quite figured out how to digitize my stuff yet.


painted wooden box with polymer clay owly!


wee owl stuffy


silly squished owl "art" in a painted and buttoned frame.  I used pheasant feathers that my aunt collects from her yard.

School and illness consumed me for a bit this past week, so I didn't get a chance to take photos...which is all fine cause smarmyclothes' are way better than I could've taken.

All the stuff I got was *totally* awesome, I am super pleased. Especially because the iPod case fits perfectly, and the belt pouch is bag heaven for me. Thanks so much Cheesy !

Also...everything in my package smelled minty. Can't complain.

OK Guys. Get ready!!! I LOVE everything PURPLEHEATHER sent to me. She truly spoiled me, so this is an extremely pic obese post. It was SOOOOOOOOO worth the ridiculous wait between the GB and US Post systems:)
First up, what I pulled out of the package (I've been on a pink and green kick lately, purpleheather knew it:)

Closeup of the tote and the inside of tote......I love this. i love the combination of fabrics Grin


And the goofy action shot  Tongue

And embroidered felt pouch . The other side had spaces for my provocraft hooks (ergonomic hook set I own, great for people with hand or wrist issues:), soooo thoughtful!!! enough room to hold some yard or other crochet stuff, and sooo cute!

Purpleheather is a great stalker!!!!!She made these from my fave projects list...

And on my feetsies (they're still there Smiley)They fit Great!!!!!

I'm horrible at taking pics of things, but if you look closely, they're are owls there. They're wrist warmers:) off my wist...

A little Owl ceramic from PurpleHeathers Mom and Dad (thoughtfulness runs in the family) sorry about the yucky pic:(

I love these little guys. They're little brooches (pins, badges, whatever they are called in whatever country you live in:) They were on my wist too:)

Purpleheather actually asked me if I wanted this guy, cause he had been made for something else. the snowy owl is my favorite owl and this guy is amazing! The plack parts are so fuzzy. The little monster is asleep right now, but I'm sure he's going to take posession once he wakes up:)

 She also included stitch markers pins a little felt needlebook with a little ribbon to put a yarn needle on...and owl pin cushion, tailors chalk, a needle guage and a measuring tape. My goodness!!

Oh, and we can't forget the chocolate, seriously it tastes better from over there than here

Everything together opened, notice the open bag of chocolates! Wink


OK, sorry about the massive reply, but seriously, best swap ever!!!Of course, it was my very first swap, I am sooooooooooo stoked about EVERYTHING!!

Thanks Purpleheather for being such a fantastic swap partner!!!!!!!!
