All the packages have been awesome!  The derby skirt, wrap pants, and cute octopus are some of my favorites!
Great stuff! Smiley

Wow there have been some wicked packages - I love the octopus too!

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

I received an awesome package today from craftaddiction!  So lovely!

First, a sparkly brown cowl (which was hard to photograph.. it's quite nice, but necks are a weird body part to capture on film):

Next, this beautiful lace scarf in a really delicate butter yellow color (so perfect for the summer season since I can wear scarves all summer here!)

And finally, the most absolutely adorable monkey friend.. he is just so friggin' cute and hugable!

Thanks again for an awesome swap, craftaddiction!

Deece made me an EXTRA crafted item. She made me this aboslutely jaw-droppingly awesome crochet hook clutch:

 Grin the zippered pouch that is included is simply perfect for crafting use.

as an extra-EXTRA Deece sent me this lovely fabric in co-ordinating colors, these are some of my all time favorite colorways... pinks and greens mixed with beautiful contrasting colors. my partner stalked me really really well  Cheesy

Oh my, what gorgeous packages everyone has received!

I received from Nannetta today and I am in love with my goodies!!  Grin

Here is the package with everything wrapped.  I love sunflowers and was excited just to see the wrapped items.  The card also has sunflowers.

These are fingerless mittens with owls!!  They are beautiful!  I love that they cover most of my fingers as well.

Then there are wrist warmers.  It has cooled down here in MN and I have been wearing these all day.  Grin  Love them!

Then I found socks!  These are the first pair of knitted socks I have owned and I love them!  I wish I had a dozen of them. Smiley  I have been wearing these all day, too.

Me with them on. Smiley  They fit perfectly!

I received a bunch of yummy treats!  I have had a couple pieces of chocolate, but I want to savour these as much as I can so I am limiting myself to 1 or 2 pieces a day.  We will see how long that lasts. Smiley

I also received some fabric.  Very cute woodland animals, owls and ladybugs.  They are awesome pieces that will find a happy home in my stash until I find the perfect project for them. Smiley

Finally, a map from Germany.  Nannetta asked if there was anything I might want from Germany.  I said that I like maps and it would be neat to have one from another country.  I am planning on making it into artwork for my wall.  I am not exactly sure yet how I want it to look, but I think it will be a fun art piece.

Nannetta did an absolutely wonderful job on color choice.  I love everything so much!  Her work is divine!  I joined this swap because my knitting skills are very basic and I always wanted some of these things.  I am so happy that I joined and received such a wonderful partner!!

Thank you, Nannetta. Smiley

Everyones goodies look great!!!  I LOVE those owl mitts.  They are so cool.  I can crochet almost anything but can't knit for the life of me!!!  Will be sending as soon as I can, hopefully over the weekend, if not, Monday for sure.  Sorry Undecided

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!
