It is like there are finely photos that prove Nessie exists!  My faith has been completely restored in the postal system...and I learned that if you send things by LAND to a place in the ocean from your own hunk of land ...it takes much longer....But yeah yeah YEAH!  My beloved BB got my beloved spoon.  I love my silver wear hehehe.  I would grab them as i was going out the door in an emergency.  I feel like it was like sending you ...well...a digit of mine...to stir your tea Grin...yes...I am claiming the title of suereal Spoonfingers....

And the fingerless gloves were worn by me for about 2 years before I managed to shrink them beyond possible finger insertion, let alone the compleat hand.  I was guessing that BB's delicate little wing bones would have no trouble slipping in.


Here's a pic of Stellina, my Tokidoki unicorn blind box sistah to the one I sent to BB.  The Tea critters in the front are from craftylittlemonkey...as is my new little felted penguin ghost that is hovering in the upper left Grin  clm sent me a new crafty package that I must get pics of ASAP!!

Yes!  It's an amazing vintage fabric with all kinds of animals on it.  I'm thinking about making a wall hanging out of it for the hall way, it's so epic.  What is in the pic is not even 1/2 of the length of it.

I crocheted both gloves at the same time.  I got the wool for fifty cents, but I had no idea how much there real was.  So I crocheted a few rows of a glove from one end of the yarn, and then do the same amount on the other glove from the other end of the skein.

And yes.  clm sends wonderific care packages!  I am so lucky...and for so many reasons Grin

What wonderful fun packages!  I will agree that craftylittlemonkey sends some of the most interesting fabrics and things...things I never knew existed but now I can't imagine life without them (tiny strong magnets!)...bitty beads...tiny owls...

BirdBones--you also received a tremendous box of fun from surreal!  I am so glad it made it...90 days?  WOW!  I would have lost hope!

Surreal and BirdBones--I can't wait to see what kind of crazy crafts you guys do with some of your awesome goodies! Cheesy  Loved the badge, surreal...and the teacup and silverspoon..*tears up*...great job all!

Oh!  I would love a 1950s style dress made with that giraffe fabric.  How fun that would be!

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Not quite a swap, just a unilaterally-sent package, but I just received some wonderful vintage French linens from the fabulous EdelC, bought last month on her now-annual European Camper Van Tour, and I just have to share them somewhere.


I've never even owned one handkerchief case before, and now I have three! It makes me feel all Jane Austen-y. Here's a detail of the embroidered farmer so you can see the geese in the baskets he's carrying!



The handkerchief cases might have been made by young girls, but the lace on this linen cloth is the work of someone who's been doing it for many years. Absolutely exquisite.


This little cut-work napkin is the sort of thing you see in stores today, machine-made in China. But this is the original thing. Look at the detail of the butterfly:


Thanks, Edel!  Kiss It was very sweet of you to think of me, and when you least expect it, something might just land in your mailbox in return!

Oh, how pretty they all are! I can just imagine you being gallant and Mr.Darcy-ish and whipping out a hadkerchief for a lady in distress, Wulf! Grin

I am so glad that you like them Wulf, the lace on piece in the third picture is indeed exquisite! looking at the top pic, the bottom one, the trim looks like tatting in the pic, I am not sure if it is, but they look great from here!

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

Just received my personal swap items from Whenindoubtsew, and I was so ridiculously spoiled.



First up, an awesome padded project bag with Serenity embroidered on the front. It's actually so soft I could probably go to sleep on it like a pillow... And it has pockets for my hooks/needles to slip into as well, which is actually really handy. Here's a little close up of the amazing stitching -



I also received an ADORABLE teacup-house-pincushion that she saw me pin and had to make. It's perfect, and just in time because I was about to go out and buy some pins (no need now!).



Then there's also this sweet hat -



It's a little brighter in person, but so soft and comfy. I can definitely see myself wearing this when it gets cold at night. And, as a plus...



This awesome steampunk-ish design with the word "GUNSLINGER" on it (because of the Dark Tower, right?) It's very cool and might be something to practice my embroidering with, perhaps?

There was also a little bag with some chocolates in it... I don't think those are going to last very long!
