My package arrived from Endymion and everything is perfect!  She shared that she felt hers skills were below mine but lady you knocked it out of the ball park! 

Look at this adorable mug rug.  First I love the color combo red and aqua and the sewing supply fabric that is one side.  The flip side is pieced and reminds me of a stack of books especially with the background fabric.  I love holding a real book in my hands and reading is a second hobby. 





Next up is an adorable pincushion made from sewing spool fabric and a vintage tin jello mold.   The sprinkles are turquoise and red straight pins and what appears to be a red button on top for a cherry.  This is such a freaking cool pin cushion something that I collect.  I love it!





I think this is my favorite.....because I can not crochet.  It is a tape measure and again the colors are spot on.  Just look at this.  Oh my how small the crochet hook had to be.  I am in awe of your talent.   Just look at the detail even on the pull.  Lady I am blown away!







Rating right up there with mind blowing is this awesome necklace.  Silver my favorite.  It is a cute glass bottle filled with buttons, scissors, a spool of thread, pins and what appears to be a charm.  It is adorable the perfect length and look at how Endymion finishes the top..... teeny tiny crochet. Oh dear my eyes hurt just thinking about someone being able to do this!





For finishing up the package she bought these cute sewing themed lapel pins!



Endymion I am so happy we were partners.   Such a wonderful well thought out and crafted package!  Thank you so much for everything!

I received from quaggy today, too! She spoiled me like a long-lost sister!!!!

The enormous box was filled with so many wrapped presents...


It felt like Christmas!
The first thing out of the box was this incredible sewn bowl. It is so intricate and so amazingly well-crafted. Just beautiful! Its going to be great for storing little bobbins and bits.



Then there is this pretty candle holder. It is a painted jar decorated with cheery flowers. A small glass goes at the top to hold a candle. She sent three different scents: patchouli, sea, and citrus. Yummy!



Here are some of the MANY fun extras that quaggy threw in: buttons galore in fabulous shapes and colors. I love the painted wooden ones! Also some fruity candy and some chocolate (that my husband was eyeing as I was unwrapping!) And a little journal that contained her message to me.




But wait, there is so much more! First this cool macrame plant holder with decorated spools tied into it. I might use it to hold yarn, though. Quaggy said that the fabric bowl fits into it.




...and this happy burlap banner for my large, blank craft room wall:



Last but far from least, this heart made out of vintage spools. I saw she had made one before, and I was secretly hoping I would get one.  Hooray!



Quaggy, Im totally blown away by your talent and your generosity. All hail the quaggy!!!! Big THANKS and hugs as well. I may have to send a second package with all the other things I thought of making but couldnt for lack of time.  Wink

Oh quaggy, as a P.S., the sewing/craft-related words on the mug rug come from this vintage fabric from the 1980s:


The roses were supposed to be used to decorate jeans, sweatshirts, and jackets. I bought the fabric for the floral designs wanted to use them to make some picture frames but couldnt throw away the instructions that were printed on the edges. Thought it would be perfect to use that fabric for the craft appreciation swap!
