That tote is way cool, definitely an awesome fabric and style!

It came!!  It finally came!!  My stalker actually said I'd be one of the last to receive and she was right.  And my stalker was not who I thought it was.  I thought my stalker was tanza but nope, it was sloth003!  She sent me a mind-blowing package which came on Saturday.  It felt like my birthday!  Lots of pics coming...

Look at this skirt!!  Sloth003 says it's her first time making wearables, I would not have guessed.  It has a 5m circumference at the hem - super swirly.  I wore this on Saturday to the annual craft show in my city along with this fantastic green t-shirt with a stencilled brocolli on it that I can't find at the moment - eeep.  They both fit perfectly.  I should have got my bf to snap a picture of me wearing them, but I forgot :S

One of the things on my wishlist for this swap was notecards, and sloth003 kindly obliged by sending me ones printed with an image of cable knitting (love!).  Also a huge gorgeous flower pin and some fantastic buttons to add to my stash (I'm addicted to buttons!).

Finally, my DPNs have a place to live. This was something else on my wishlist. I love the fabric on this.  I'll have to unearth all those odd needles and put them in their nice new home.

Sloth003 and I were in the mug rug swap together (but not partnered) and she kindly made me another fabulous mug rug.

I have always admired jewellery made from sea glass and sloth003 made me a necklace from lake glass (she lives near the Great Lakes in Canada) and a cool looking rock.  I wore the lake glass one on saturday too.

I could not stop squeaking over this.  I squeaked over everything but this was just wow!  Did you make this pattern up yourself sloth003?  This is going on my handmade art wall.

Some of my goodies were wrapped in this lovely fabric.  The middle one has needles,thread and scissors amongst the flowers.

And some sweet felt flowers.   I have a vase for these but I need a scrap of florist's oasis to prop them in or they just flop about. 

I also received some cheesy popcorn which was wolfed down (scrummy) and two coffee crisp bars that my boyfriend and I enjoyed.

Sloth003, I cannot tell you how happy your package made me and I really do love everything you sent.  So very many thanks!

littlebluegirl sorry love it were not me.  Grin

nice to know I was thought of though....

I love the mug rug it looks fabulous and that skirt is so cool.

and cross stitch OMG it rocks I wish I had that sort of patience and ability. I think my hands would die before I got out half a dozen stitches.

certainly worth waiting for, for sure.


Life is a terminal disease, NO one gets out alive.....The idea is to enjoy it while you can.
