When you receive please let your organiser know, if you aren't sure which one of us that is, just send the PM to both of us. Smiley  We'll be happy to hear from you!

We should have a lot of packages arriving this week and we want to be able to leave feedback as soon as your package to your person has been received and you have received a package from your stalker! Smiley

Kwality, so glad you liked your package and I love the name Borris!

The items you labeled as headbands, they were made to be bookmarks but would possibly work for headbands, multipurpose if so!

Did these little creatures arrive?

I loved the tote fabric!

I received a phenomenal box of goodies from P_E_S_T!

She totally spoiled my son, Nolan, with an ocean-full of toys!  There are tiny sea horses, tiny octopi and Nolan's favorite-- flying fish.

She made this beautiful fish for Nolan (I'm thinking it started as a sweater) which is stuffed with odd socks...  Bonus points for making it a green project!!!

Here is Nolan in his Pillow Pit with one of his flying fish... They're tiny weighted fish with long ribbon tails... When they "fly" their ribbon tails stream behind them-- SO COOL!  If I manage to capture an action shot, I will post it!  But Nolan loves the tails Smiley

The tiny sea creatures were stuffed into the pockets of this wall organizer that Ms. P_E_S_T stitched up!  The picture doesn't really do this justice...  But the treasure chest in the lower right corner even has a shiny gold treasure (it looks like a giant coin!) inside... Such a fun detail!

And for me, she made me a project keeper!  There are spots all around the inside for knitting needles and crochet hooks.  The inside is also big enough for all of my knitting boards and looms and a few balls of yarn! And for the record, I LOVE this fabric!

Also tethered inside is a needle book full of needles! Jolene, you must know I can never find a needle when I want one!!! And there's plenty of space inside to throw some fabric in, so it's definitely a versatile piece!

Thank you P_E_S_T!

So glad you liked it !!!! And for the record, the fish.......... yes recycled jumpers but they were picked apart, then reknitted into a pattern and then felted in the washing machine !!!!!!!!!!! My son sobbed when I put it in the parcel so am having to make another HAHAHAHAHA !

Anyhooooooooooooo folks, I was delighted that I got to send and recieve from such a lovely person. SHe spoiled me thoroughly !!!

Firstly, group shot !......

She made me some bee lip balm which is perfect as his-self is a bee keeper. some necklaces and bought me this amazing fairy pin which i willll sooooooooooooo be adorning myself with daily. For the record I really do believe in fairies !

My box was stuffed so full with felt I cant even begin to tell you, everything was wrapped in it - and then there were the buttons - oHHHhhhhh the buttons Smiley

I am forever losing my needles, especially my felting needles which generally end up in the bottom of someones foot (felters out there you know the pain !) So I was delighted to get these needle holders.

My children dont have access to a television so the lovely nolansmomster has filled a bag full of goodies and then made some ingenious car fun travel boxes out of old video cases. The boys will be delighted but I might save that back for our long travel holiday in July

And........................ if that lot wasnt enough....... She painted me some treasure chests and fences which I will use in my sand trays (im a psychotherapist) and then made me a large "swap" box including little notelets and pens to help me on my way with craftster.

I am so happy to have been part of this swap. Ive been waiting along time to find something to nourish my creative being - its fun making stuff for family but even more fun making stuff for strangers. Thankyou Craftster xx



LATEST project - I'm compiling a "handed down" recipes boom and so if I get you in a swap, would you be so kind to find a recipe from your childhood. type it up - if you want to decorate, then please do :

There was a woman who felted
And felted all day long

Yes! I did receive them.  I think they were my favorite thing in the whole box, but it's hard to decide.  I put them on the buffet with other monster stuff and totally forgot to photograph them.  

Funny that I thougth the bookmarks were headbands.  They worked, though!!!  I thought they were adorable with the monsters on them!!!  Bookmarks are great, too, though.  I've just gotten back into reading again, so they'll be nice for that.

The fairy house is so cute!  I just love it!

The monster package is amazing!  I love every bit of it.

The fabric used for the felting needle case is adorable.

I seriously want those felted octopi.

Everything has just been so great in this swap!  I can't wait to receive my package, I have narrowed my sender down to 10 people.  I am also anxious for my partner to receive the goodies I sent off.  The mail needs to hurry on up!
