I am so glad that you liked everything SunflowerSmiles!! You are an awesome partner.

Because I am really proud of how it turned out- here is a close up shot of the handspun yarn I sent. It is merino that I bought from copperpot on Etsy.

this is definitely a swap i should have sent early...not to worry partners, i am very excited about how your packages are coming together, but there are just so many great ones out here so far and it's hard not to get a little nervous!  great job everyone!
i, once again, will be sending close to the deadline - but hey, that's how i work i guess. Wink

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)

I received a beautiful package from Pinkleo this week.  (My apologies for keeping you all waiting for pictures, but my opera is taking over my life.)  Dear Pinkleo decided to break up her swap packing into two parts, so family members wouldn't steal my presents!  And very glad I am that she did... :-)  Here are the goodies from the first package she sent.  (And wow, have I been spoiled!)

A stunning Tree of Life pendant:

A group of Twilight bracelets!  (Pinkleo assures me I'm not too old to love Twilight.)  From left to right they represent La Push, Forks, and dear Edward:

An awesome Harry Potter charm bracelet based on the scene in Sorcerer's Stone, when Harry has to catch the winged key to get to the stone:

A beautiful little emerald green potion pendent, which I like to think is full of the potion from the cave in book six.  You may say that's sad, but I think both Harry and Dumbledor would have approved of something that reminded one of the importance of searching for knowledge and truth. 

An adorable HP bookmark, with a scene from The Goblet of Fire:

And finally, the most stunning blanket!  Something Molly Weasley might whip up to keep her family warm and snuggly. 

I have been curled up in this every moment that I've been home since I received it.  I've even been sleeping with it.  :-)

THANK YOU PINKLEO!  I've been so dreadfully spoiled, I don't know what to do with myself.  I loved crafting for you, and would be honored to swap with you again, anytime, anywhere, any theme!  Hehehe... 

P.S.  Have you started Outlander yet?  ;-)

Oh wow, everyone has received such wonderful packages - and I'm no exception!  The fabulous Oneredboot sent me a package that absolutely blew me away.  The thoughtfulness, care, and skill that she put into it are all amazing.  Prepare your wisting buttons!

Everything together: knitting bag, needle roll, coffee sleeve, hat, and scarf.

The knitting bag and needle roll.  I've recently started knitting and have been participating in "knit nights" with my friends.  These will be perfect for toting around my projects!  They are beautifully made and I love the fabric.

The needle roll with some of my needles inside:

Next up, the coffee cup sleeve.  Oneredboot made this specifically to fit my travel mug, which has very strange dimensions.  The yarn is made out of recycled plastic bottles - how cool is that?  We were crafting with two broad themes in mind, "simple pleasures" and "sustainability," and I think she nailed both of them.

Finally, the hat and scarf.  The photos simply don't do justice to these.  They are so beautiful and I'm so appreciative of all the work Oneredboot must have put into them!  I've been wearing the scarf practically non-stop since I opened it.  Both are lovely, soft, and warm - the perfect thing to get me through the rest of winter.  The color is a bit off in this picture; they are actually a richer blue (more like the group shot).

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Oneredboot!
