Great stuff so far!

Moderator Comment Will everyone please take a moment to check the front page of this gallery and let me know if your info is correct? I have several people down as sent, but I don't know if the rest of you have sent or have heard from your partners. Please post here and let me know! Mistress J and LBandBBs, you both have positive feedback now. :)

Looks right! I haven't sent yet. I have a little bit of finishing left, but will not try to get to the post office today since I haven't been feeling well. Tomorrow I'll have to leave the house and going to the post office is the second item on my to do list Smiley

I received the best parcel from Annchen this weekend!

First of all, she made some beautiful knitted wrist warmers. I absolutely love the colors and the leaf pattern! They're perfect Cheesy

Action shot - they fit great!


She also knitted me the coolest mug cozy! I love that quote, I wouldn't be able to survive without coffee Tongue


I took it to work this morning, here's an action shot.


She also spoiled me with a bunch of Swedish treats!! There's extremely minty tea (it literally has my whole craft room smelling like mint), a tea strainer, fruit soup (I'm super excited to try it!), coffee flavoured toffee (which were delicious, I only have 1 left Tongue oops!) AND mint/green tea lip chap!!


(The wrist warmers and mug cozy were wrapped in the white tissue paper in this photo)

Thanks so much Annchen, you're a great swap partner Cheesy I really hope you like everything I sent you as much as I like my stuff!

I love my package too! Prepare for lots of pictures...


The box... Always fun to dive into a box of unknown goodies! I tend to send padded envelopes if I can but perhaps I shouldn't rob my partners of the fun... On to the excited "still in the bubblewrap" pictures:





I love my new yarny bowl! And look at the inside quote:


The tree of life was an added bonus. theartofarejay warned me there would be a little pinterest gift included. (Not that small, and very pretty!)





More excited bubblewrap pictures! And a prettier one I took outside today. They fit like a glove and I think my coworker wanted to steal them when I took them to work yesterday. Perfect for staying warm but still having a good grip of the steering wheel on my way home in a cold car.

I love that they're made from a recycled sweater!



Goodies! We decided to swap some local treats as extras. The tea I got is not in the picture, since it's already in the kitchen. The maple infusions are super tasty!

Thanks again!
