I received two days ago from the wonderful Jemimah! She amazed me!!
And spoiled me!!

We agreed to a small/medium swap, but she did more than that! Look:

A close up of all the extras:

A pretty and handy journal. Will use that idea in the future! A Christmas ornament with a dove. Stamped on fabric. So pretty!
A card with fish, we love that so much! The fishes are drawn and then coloured, beautiful.
And a card that is was handmade by Jemimah!  Cheesy

She is an awesome knitter! I asked for something knitted and she made me not one but TWO pretty hats, both with rich and pretty colours and both with a different motif (Is that the right word?) The purple hat is made with heavier/thicker (not sure) thread (ooh, I'm tired and can't seem to find the right words... Sorry!!)

Here is one picture of me wearing one of the hats:

The other one fits as well as this one, but that pic did weird again. You will have to take my word for it!!

Anyway, THANKS A LOT Jemimah!! You are such a friendly and crafty woman! I had lots of fun chatting with you and crafting for you.
Your package is well-loved, I hope we get a lot of snow so I can wear my hats!! WOOHOO!!

 Great package and those hats got there right in time for the cold! My favorite thing is the fish card. It's beautiful.

The two hats look really warm and very comfortable. I like that they are not flat but have a motif. I can't find the right word either!

Wendiek made me the most beautiful set of placemats with appliqu fish!

It's a dull morning here, the picture doesn't really do justice to how gorgeous they are. Th fabrics and colours are just perfect, they are wonderful and beautifully sewn - thank you so much wendie!! Exactly what I wanted!!

This was such a nice swap, I really enjoyed chatting with you too wendiek, and getting to know you a little better Smiley I hope we will swap again sometime!

I had a lot of fun with my first IYP swap and my first LV swap all rolled into one.  Grin My little gnome named Gnome had a trip to Georgia! Previously he had rarely ventured off the top of my computer tower at work. I got a lovely package from Koalascout. I am jealous of Gnome, I wish I could pack myself in a box and get a vacation via usps.
Here is Gnome with some goodies from the restaurants he visited, some delicious looking pepper jelly (that won't last long), and he is sitting in an empty shot glass. I didn't know my little gnome was such a lush, he drank the whole thing!!!

Here is Gnome with his photobook of all his adventures. I love this picture!

Here are some more fun little bits and bobs he brought home with him. Love the little bottle cap pin cushion.

Thank you Koalascout!!

Wendiek, I love the clean lines of the placemats. The colors and fabrics are neat too!

Beeker, what a lovely gnome! And what a fantastic adventure.

Both my partner's received just before christmas day. Cheesy So here is the things I sent stillatthetop (She asked me to post photos) I also have received from her but haven't got the photos on my computer yet. Not shown is some ANZAC biscuits and fudge caramel I sent.

Apologies for the horrible photos. My camera seems to want to make everything look dirty right now.

Crow painting. I saw one online I liked and thought I'd try it. I love crows.

Japanese Tabi socks. Traditionally worn with zori and geta.

Two different types of felting kits. I was going to make these but didn't get time.

Random things. A container with extra whimsies I didn't send QueenNinjaMonkey, a syringe pen (I love these for some reason. And they match my hair colour), Pirate treasure necklace, 'toe tags', more felt (some with sticky backs), glow in the dark duct tape, music deco tape because stillatthetop always talks about music, And a little bottle with a halloween Bat ring. Those small child sized plastic rings look amazing on the miniature bottles I have found. Since they dont fit me thats what I use them for.  Wink

My items from Stillatthetop. She wasn't able to send her main item but we will make that up later.

Christmas tree decorations. Angel, Stars, reindeer from puzzle pieces (That's actually really cool! on Stillatthetops pinterest), gingerbread man. We don't normally need to put decorations on our tree as it has lots of lights. Wink

Voodoo Juju Doll. (He's a crossdresser XD). I love this it's really cool and odd, in a good way! Oogey Boogey Bugs. A horse made from string that is now a cat toy. And a tiny stocking with a little baby toy inside. (I like creepy baby toys) It's so hilarious and cute just peeking out like that. Tongue

Candy! Practical jokes (Which are funny to read) and I think that's a valentines day coupon book.

More candy! Zombie face lollipop, candy blood with fangs, Reese's pieces! Cheesy

I think those Crabby patties got in twice :O But more candy! I love me candy. And I'm gonna save that lemonhead for them I see my friend in Feb, it's an inside joke between us.

I love it all! Too bad the main wasn't finished in time but the items I got are very cool c: Thank you Stillathetop!
