Part of the deal is that we share photos and write up about what we've recieved, so I thought I'd share here too . . . plus I can share photos from here to the swap thread . . .
So, here's the parcel which arrived from my lovely friend Ilwin in the Czech Republic!
And on top of the box, when it was opened - uh-oh!
All of the things. Presents, and postcards, and a bag of teensy seed beads, and CHOCOLATE! MMMmmmmmMMMMm!
The first of the handmade goodies - a row-counter necklace (isn't that clever - the beads can be slid up and down and they stay where you move them to - I'll have to figure out how to use it properly), some sparkly dangly earrings, and stitch markers for crochet and knitting.
I may have mentioned my fandom . . .
TWO crocheted scarves! How gorgeous are these! The purple one is folded over, and has it's own wee shawl-pin.
Some acrylic yarn in jewel tones, which will be very handy - I love fancy yarns and all, but bright cheerful acrylics are what I most often find myself crafting with, and don't those colours just make you smile!
But what's this? Who's been sleeping in MY yarn?
It's the feegle, of course! I shall have to find a suitable containment method for this wee scunner, or he'll offski with the chocolate and any "medicinal" liquids he might find about the place!
I wonder if he has a name . . .
