I got an awesome package over the weekend, and it couldn't have had better timing. I worked overtime all last week, came home with a raging headache and was surprised by all these goodies. So while I was laying on the couch, I dug through everything...

Here is everything right when I pulled it out. On the left you can see the awesome polar fleece blanket made for my daughter.

And here is the close-up of that blanket...the hlaf that isn't wrapped around a sleepy two year old. As soon as she saw it, she grabbed it and said "it's so preeeety!" and then ran off to put it on her bed.

I also got a crocheted blanket for our new baby, due in September. My partner was actually the first person I told, so I am really glad there was one thing for him/her. It's so soft and perfect colors and size.

A wine cork board she pulled off my pinterest. I think it's going down into my craft room for hanging up patterns I am working on.

Jewelry! This is always  win with me. A necklace with a skeleton key (which I collect), pandora-esque bracelet in blues (fave color) and a sheep pin that says "free rnage". All are getting worn this week!

She also made me a mug run with star backing and beaded trim. And the yarn is not at all too pastelly -- I lvoe the shades of blue! I also got postcards for my collection and a new bookmark, which I can always use.

Tea in my fave flavors! And the person who made all this wonderfullness?!?....

You were a wonderful partner, and I love everything! Thank you so much for taking so much time to find out what I love. Smiley

I will be mailing tomorrow, hopefully you haven't all guessed who my partner is, I purchased a pre paid envelope but couldn't send it on its way today, it will be at my partners by Friday if not sooner.  Loving all the packages but now I'm getting swap anxiety.
I hate when life gets in the way, but at least I'll have a nice pay check, which means I can afford the 2 day express post.

Looking for the free row by row patterns.  If you are able to get me one from your town I will paypal you $2 for postage.

I received from the fabulous EdelC last week and she spoiled me!  I apologize one or two of the pictures is slightly blurry for some reason... I can't figure this dang camera out!

First up is a set of gorgeous note cards!  Not sure I will want to send them away...

Next is an awesome hand bound journal with Loteria Cards on the front and back.  Loteria card are like Bingo cards.

She also made me a Love Potion necklace from my Pinterest but it didn't travel well.  Luckily it was in it's own wrapping so that the potion didn't get on anything else.

My very first shrine!!!! I am so happy with this.  There was a silver flower in the corner that popped off during shipping and I hadn't glued it back on before I took photos.

She also stenciled me my very own Nimbus 2000 shirt!

I also got my very own St. Patrick's Day shirt directly from Ireland!

As if that wasn't enough she made me the MOST AMAZING Harry Potter quilt!  I have hung this up in my craft room over my desk and I absolutely love it. Sorry for the blurry pics.  If you have better ones please post Edel


I love how one of the houses is colored in!!

Thank you so much EdelC for being such a great detective!

I am glad you like the stuff lindy..I don't have any better pix...I am glad you liked the quilt DD cut all of the stencils (nothing like child labour..even if she is 18)

I coloured in that house because it is very like mine! This is from the side..but you get the idea


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.

I am so glad that you liked everything!  I was so worried!

I am also glad that you were able to sort out all those letters to figure out my user name!  It has quite a lot of letters in it!

To my stalker.

I believe I have received from you. However. I am 5800kms from home.

If you don't mind. I would still really like to be surprised when I get home from vacation.

If you desperately need feedback. I am sure you can talk to SevsOnlyGirl and arrange that. In advance.  Thank you for crafting for me. I will post pictures asap when I get home on the 15th.

Finally I can post pictures...Cheesy

My package was from ale0059...

She gave me clues of who she is...it took me some time to figure it out.

Then I found a pair of super warm wristwarmers...I think I have used them almost every day since I got them...It's super cold here -15 C

Next up was a pair of really beautiful earrings...Totally my style:D And the little box is sooo cute...

When I opened the wrapping to see the next item I jumped from joy...It is a smashbook:D I have been wishing to get one for quite long now but it is impossible to get one where I live...

She also sent some extras for the smashbook but I forgot to take pics and now they are already in use Grin

and here is a piece of fabric that she sent...Love the pattern on it...I already put that into use also...

And then there was another envelope so that I could check if I guessed right at first...

I absolutely Love my package...Thank you so much...Cheesy

I hear ya had an idea but it died of boredom...
