Hooray for Swaps!

If you didn’t notice, I’ve been away. I started a post before we left but it fell by the wayside in the pre-vacation mania. So now, I’m really behind in posting some of the awesome things that have arrived in my mailbox recently, so on to the photos…

First thing is the postcards I received as part of the Open Yours Too trade 07. We each made three postcards, sent one to one person and then “lost” the other two which were fully addressed and stamped to another two people. One of my “lost” postcards got through to it’s intended — hopefully the other two will soon. Here are the great cards I received (all three!). How hysterical that all three include embroidered fabric. I love them all — it’s an amazing swapping world.

Next, I got my package from my One Skein secret pal — very cool manos del uruguay yarn in the caribe colorway plus a note and some great stitch markers (I only have ugly utilitarian ones). The color is fabulous and the yarn is totally feltable – yahoo! So now, what should I make with it? A little felted bowl or box maybe. Perhaps a clutch? Decisions, decisions. Whatever I make I know it will be fun. Thanks so much secret pal whomever you are.
