Swaps, Friends and PIF

I was at the post office today and posted 6 parcels, 3 swaps parcels and 3 PIF gifts (posted later than I had hoped but gone nonetheless) :D When I got home there were 2 parcels waiting for me. :)

The first parcel held a swap skein of delectable handspun BFL bulky yarn, handpainted too. Isn't it georgeous!!! My pictures do not do it real justice. lilcoley is obviously a master at this :)



Spring Fling

The yarn feels like cotton wool to touch but with a silkiness too:)



The second parcel held this exquisite hand crafted bag in Amy Butler fabric. This is the second bag I received in a swap from CJ. Isn't she really talented? I wish she would set up shop!! And I'm not the only one who wishes that. Can you believe she is fairly new to sewing machines. I can't tell from the bags.......



I hope all those who were sent parcels today receive them quickly :) I enjoyed doing them but I forgot to put in the little cards I wrote for the PIFs and Swaps..............duh! I remembered after I had used up all the cellotape!

Lovely bag, I had a sock bag in that fabric. The yarn is very Malabrigo looking, delicious.
