My day 8 war this fabulous pouch. @jemimah has the gift of effortless elegance. She makes things that appear simple, but they are so incredibly well made, and super sophisticated. (Whereas I throw the kitchen sink at things, she’s a lot more restrained)

I adore this pouch, it’s so well constructed and so well designed. And a bonus bath potion that smells amazing.

Look at the embroidery detail on this bird!

I get home late tonight. If I’m not completely wiped, I’ll open up presents and post!! @saintcady glad he liked the shirt! No worries, Elliott will appreciate a handmade gift for his birthday! I hope to carve out some time to finish that final large tomorrow and Wednesday.

:musical_note: On the 9th day of Christmas @Amfkinney sent to me…

:musical_note: Two soaps and washcloths

What cotton yarn do you use? It’s soooooooooo soft. I love it! It feels way nicer than the stuff I usually buy.

@bugaboo also sent me some lovely smelling soap (the brambleberry is divine!), chapstick, and a loufa!

My first thought was, did you and @Amfkinney craft and plan this to be opened the same day, or a happy coincidence?

Thanks!

LOL I got @Amfkinney a soap making class for her birthday (you know one for you one for me kind of gift!) So we made the soap together, we knew we would both be sending soap to partners, the fact they were opened on the same day total coincidence!

How are we on day 9 and did we all start a day early.
10-weds

Are we not supposed to open 12 on christmas day :thinking:. Not that I’m complaining. I’m loving the surprises.

Today is this fab slouchy hat. With optional tassle, which of course was added. Always moar in my life!!!

there was discussion on the swap thread and several people wanted to open day 12 on Christmas Eve. I left it up to each person but I think everyone was eager to start!

And for day 9 I have a fabulous journal. When asked what type of journal I wanted, I really didn’t have a clue, but this is amazing.

Day 9 from @geekgirl, this ridiculously cute koala! I love him so much, I think I audibly squeeeee’d when I saw him :slight_smile:

And since today is my birthday, I also opened up the extras she sent :). Looking forward to trying the glaze pens and the stamps will be perfect for happy mail!
