i took pictures of the swap goodies i sent out for this swap and then forgot completely to upload them once my partner got her stuff.. so here are a couple of what i think are the highlights of the swap

here’s amberglas modelling the mad hatter hat and key necklace.

she thought it was a leprechaun hat and started step dancing.

noni had to checkout the quilt.

she didn’t want to let it go till i promised to make her a pink one, “which you still haven’t done” she pipes up.

smidge and beezie were in a lovely pj swap with revolutionary cake. unfortunately the post office lost our first package to her, and we are still waiting to see if the makeup one arrives. having sent it off at least the girls got to see what they received. (they waited till they had posted off their second attempt before open their own gifts. admirable self restraint i thought!)
sleepy swap 1
but here they are gloating over the huge pile of packages.

sleepy swap 3
beezie was ready to dive right in, but smidge insisted on sorting first.

sleepy swap 4
“look at all the stuff we got!” beezie cooed, we need to try on the jammies right away!

sleepy swap 5
don’t they look sweet! and they can’t stop cuddling their new friends! beezie is blowing kisses to aunty jo!

sleepy swap 6
smidge said i have to show off the cute bum flap! (beezie found that hysterical) then both of them curled up under their blankies and went to sleep.

so i was in a realpuki swap, and after i got everything made and packaged, i trundled off to the post office to get the parcel weighed and measured. dutifully handing over my money for postage, i was assured the parcel should arrive in 5-7 days. imagine my surprise when a week later it showed up not at my swap partners door, but back in our mail box! it had a sticker on it saying i owed 4 cents postage. 4 cents!. there was almost $8 dollars postage on it and they quibble over 4 cents???
especially after “they” told me how much it would cost in the first place?

however nothing to do but go back to the post office, pay my 4 cents and send it off again…
which i did….
however, in spite of the label clearly stating i owed 4 cents, the lady at the post office insisted on weighing and measuring it again, and informing me i didn’t owe 4 cents……
nope, i owed 7 cents…..
only canada post 😆
here’s hoping it doesn’t come back again :sigh

smilga outfit

here is an absolutely gorgeous outfit we got from smilga (see link on side to see more of her wonderful stuff!)

smilga dress with new wig

beezie wanted to show how nice it looks with her new hair and of course her ever present goggles 😆

we were fighting the wind (blowing her hair) our cat (sure she must be a strange mouse) and strong shadows ’cause it was kind of late in the day.  i’ll have to take a better picture later.

eiderdown swap

i joined a swap for bedding for realpukis/ pukipukis.  my partner liked purple and teddies.  it was fun to do ’cause i love purple and teddies too, so i had lots of fabric that worked.  she sent me the dimensions she wanted and here is what i made.  i think it came out rather well.


here is a picture she took of her cute zoey with her new quilt


i think she looks rather sweet don’t you?
