Here is the package I got from edamame.  It is a small zippered bag, 2 boxes covered with fabric, a tiny book to put pictures in (I think that's what its for), and a pretty shiny button.  She said the fabric she used was from vintage kimonos.

Thanks Elizabeth!

eep.  I forgot to take pictures and put a note in the package for simply.  I was in such a hurry to get to the post office before they closed, it slipped my mind.  Sad

i got my package from brena80!!  let me just say she is the best swap partner!  i absolutely love everything she made.  unfortunately i do not have a digital camera, so hopefully she'll be able to post pics.  if not, i'll try to borrow the bf's this weekend.  she made me:

--an awesome letter box covered in red handmade (?) paper with the same pinup cowgirl pic as my avatar (enoch bolles)
--pinup keychain with pretty yellow beads
--teal corduroy purse that is the most adorable thing ever
--polka dotted (!!) zippered pouch
--and...a real pen pal letter!  i'll be writing back, absolutely!

thanks so much nicole, i love everything!  btw, did you make the kiwi bird notecard?  it's so cute.

I recieved an amazing package from apixiegrl! Whoa! She out did herself. I recieved a really great coorinated knitting set that I so desperately needed!!! I knitting roll bag, a needle roll, and an accessory/notions bag! All in a super fun pink diva fabric, that all my kids at school are gonna think is so cool!!! (and I do too!) (it's a glamor girl wonder woman) She even so thoughtfully covered the exterior of the cases with a protective viynl, which is so great, as my art room is so messy and dirty, I get my stuff, so yucky so fast, and this set will be back and forth to school with me all year!! I am so excited!!!
In addition to all of that, the accsessory bag has a really great bag charm and she even sent me hand spun and dyed wool for my Birthday that is Saturday! Thanks for remembering. That was so sweet.
She did this all on a strange sewing machine, while on a trip! And than she  actually appologized for it not being her best work, but I can't figure out what she is referring to, because it's so perfect!!!!!! I'd hate to see her good work! My oh my she'd put us all to shame! Thank you so so much!!
I love it all so much!
APIXIEGRL, You are amazing!!!!!
Megaknits said she has pictures to post, so thank you too.

Luckily I am a picture whore and take pictures of everything I make so I can send them out to family and friends and recieve praise.   The only downside is that I recieve requests much more often that way.   2 people want your box!


Pen Pal box

super cute purse



ribbon pouch!

I can't wait to get your letter!

apixiegrl... you're amazing, as are gingery and edamame... there are some seriously talented swappers in this group!
