Well today was a pretty good day all in all. Firstly I got up and went to the gym with my friend, that's 3 weeks in a go that we've stuck to our arranged exercise day.
Then once back home again I got a phone call from my friend L who I sent the dishcloth and bright pink stuffie owl to for her birthday. She got them today and she loves them. She totally appreciates how much love and effort was put into her personal present. Bless her.
Then I got online and saw that my Craftster swap partner AmaZing had received her Owl Swap Round 4 parcel that I sent only yesterday. Yay for the post office! And... she absolutely loves my stuff. I'm so happy. I was so nervous that it was all going to go terribly wrong but she loves it all. :D
Then (it just doesn't stop does it?) I got an email from KA who is sending me my Owl Swap package, that she was going to post it today. Woohoo can we say I'm very excited?
So now here come the pics
This is everything all wrapped up and ready to go into the post.
AmaZing showed me a shirt that she liked on the Craftster board that had been done by Tanza so I contacted her and she very kindly forwarded me the image which she had originally got from devilninny. So thank you and all credit to those 2 ladies. :)
This is a knitted purse that I lined with felt and added the big eyes, ears, beak and filled with some traditional Scottish sweeties and these cute wee buttons.
This is the first felt stuffie that I've made probably since I was in primary school and also the first time I'm ventured into the world of sequins. I'm still finding them lurking around the house, it's amazing how they get everywhere!
These are some notecards that I stencilled. My favourite is the big hairy one with a glint of mischief in his eye.
Big one was so excited about my finally signing up to a swap that she wanted to get involved so she did this cross stitch of a baby owl. He's so cute that she's already been told that her wee sister and me both want our own :)
So that's it, I have finally ventured into the world of swaps properly and thankfully it's been a great start :)
Now I just have to sit and wait for my parcel...oh and check out what swaps I can sign up for next ;)
