I have one special koala sent to me from Cyndiq!

Kiah clamps onto things, and right now she is on my monitor holding my dongles and flash drives! Thank you Cyndiq!

SugarySweet I gave the poppet to dear sister-in-law, and she loves it! She hugged it and held it all night. She compared it to my poppet, and decided that <hers> is the better one, of course. (Gomerriffic I still like MINE better. . . ) So you did a wonderful job. She especially loves the braids you put into her hair!

              IT IS TRULY LOVED!
          YAY!!! SUGARYSWEET!!!

I received my package from the amazing Mrs Jenicat today.
Each and every item in the package is truly loved.
Words cannot describe how incredible everything is, so I will try to show you in photos.  I will not apologize for the insane number of pics I have here  Grin

Adorable pinback buttons with trees, forest creatures and naughty words - my favorite things!

A desperately needed and adorable sewing machine cozy, shown here already in use 10 minutes after arrival!

A wonderful felt leaf brooch that will go on my hat when its chilly and my bag when its warm.

Girl with bird on her head stamp!!  I have a stamp just like this (but smaller - this one rocks!) on my wist.  Last year during the dotee swap, carrieme made me a dotee with a bird on her head and Jeni loved it and then saw the stamp on my wist it was modeled after.  She remembered!!

I took the other pieces outside to show them off better in the morning sun.

Super long finger knit lariat with felted balls and felt leaves.  So soft and pretty!

Two pairs of sterling silver earrings - one with labradorite, moonstone and garnet, the other with iolite (all of my favorite stones!!!).  The silver pendant reads "she swims against the tide". My eyes misted when I saw this.

A stunning bronze freshwater pearl and dark turquoise on copper & leather necklace.  This is SO my style.

A chunky cluster bracelet like the one she made Phizzy in the first tree swap!! I had wisted it as soon as I saw it.  I could stare at the beautiful beads for hours.  SHE MAKES HER OWN HEADPINS!!

I am making you all see THREE pics of the last item, and I still cant capture its beauty.  a ropey cluster bracelet of faceted labradorite rondelles.  I had this bracelet on my wist to show my love of labradorite, I never expected anyone to actually make such a phenomenal piece for me.  I wish I could capture the beautiful blue-green flash of the stones. There are a few wee iolite rondelles near the end clasps.

This pic shows a bit of the lovely flash.  It also looks like a weird petri dish on first glance.  Grin

Jeni, thank you so much for being such a beautiful partner, generous and talented artist, and most of all my friend.
hugs and love xxx

Aw, thanks.  Smiley  I'm so glad dm liked everything.  I was going to get a lot more done (even bought supplies for several other projects) but my motivation was all but lost after a certain point... I did end up completing many of the projects after that, but I couldn't do everything I wanted to do.

BUT!  I am happy that my partner is happy, and I will finish the other stuff at a later date (maybe next round? Tongue).

The sewing machine cover looks completely shapeless because... well, it is.  Wink  I wanted to make sure it would fit whatever type of machine dm has, so I didn't want to make it too small.  I mean, it's meant to cover the machine, not sex it up.  Cheesy  I just had to remind myself of that.

Wow, Jenicat!  I don't normally care much for jewelry, but I LOVE all that stuff you made for DM!  That necklace is the bees knees!  The bracelets are fab!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

Aw, thank you all!  I have tons and tons of beads, so it was really nice to get to use them for someone other than myself.  Smiley  I think I've gotten so used to having them all that I just let them sit and gather dust, which is a shame because I have lots of really cool stones and pearls and other neat stuff.  I'm glad they are being appreciated.  Cheesy
