Still here, slightly distracted by garden things in the nice weather.  Need to finish up my claim for Audio and get it in the mail, since Wednesday I'm chaperoning my child's field trip with some ridiculously large number of kindergarteners.

Are you planning to do another round, kartiana? Since I decided to sit out this round of the STS,  I would probably have the bandwidth to jump back in here. No pressure, though; just curious!

Having sent out one swap package yesterday I'm taking looong breaths today, trying to wind down and sorting out what needs to be done when, what I want to do, and how to fit that together, along with family & job. So business as usual.

One lovely thing today was that my package from thanate arrived, and it held a lovely purple jersey scarf and some cute machine embroidered pieces!

The scarf is so comfortable and cozy, see:


(won't let me edit my picture to turn around properly, sorry!)

And these are the embroidered pieces: two leaf or feather shapes, and two ornaments that look like they want to be turned into earrings!



Thank you very very much for a lovely package thanate!

Beautiful purple goodies! That scarf looks so comfy and I love that deep shade of purple in the embroidered pieces.

I was hoping to send to thanate yesterday but didn't get out of the house in time  Tongue But I'll send tomorrow!

Yay, glad the packet of purple things made it! Smiley  (and I figured if there was anyone who could find some use for little embroidered charms, it would be a jewelry maker...)

Still here, been out of it with a sinus/throat/cough/ooey-gooey ickyness. bleah. I'm not sure I would sign up for the next round. I think I have to put swaps on hold until after the Asheville meet up, but I would imagine I would be back in for May if anyone were wanting to host?

I love those embroidered charms! They remind me of the micromacrame jewelry on my wishlist.

I may join next round, but probably won't know for sure until probably mid month

Checking in ... amazing stuffs. I am a bit lazy this round, my son does not allow me any time at my computer, so I am checking your lists for things I can easily make or if I have it already. I was close to claim audio, but I was late Smiley)
Love those purple things what Anne got, wondering how those ornaments made? Thanate - are those machine embroidery things? Looking beautiful Smiley

Yes, the charms are an embroidery thing called free-standing lace (FSL) where you embroider on a stabilizer that dissolves when you get it wet.  They're fun! Smiley

I could do next month (after I get a free feedback slot), but would be happy to take a break until May.  Also I'm up for organizing a round or two if kartiana wants to swap out at some point; I can probably host any month except July or August.
