Look what I received in the mail last week!
I recently joined a yahoo group for a magic ball swap.I was very happy when I opened the parcel and found this lovely ball of yarn in it.There are a couple of gifts put inside the ball and some where on the outside.Now I'm searching for a pattern so I can start knitting with this beautiful yarn and of course so I can see what my swap partner has put in it..........exhiting!!!!!!!
She also made me a beautiful patchwork card.I'm very curious who was my swap partner, as it was a secret swap.
I'm still working on mine but I hope to have it ready in a couple of days.





And here are some brooches I received from another swap I was in. It's the pin/ brooche swap from swap-bot. I have received some beautiful crochet brooches and also a bird brooche but I seem to have lost that photo. And of course the batteries of our digital camera where empty.......But I will post a photo of it in another post.

LOVE the little floral knit pins. Would like to try my hand at them, but am still an amateur knitter. I have seen some really sweet felted pins at our local knitting shop. So sweet on maybe a denim jacket!

The floral knit pins looks great! I agree with farmgirl, it must look good at a jacket or maybe a jumper.

Oh you have been participating so many swaps! I got your special Christmas ornament today. Thank you dear Monique! I like it a lot and it will be my treasure! I just cant wait to fill it with candies....
Have you got mine yet? Its sort of half made. I added the crown and all ribbons there wasnt anything else than this white...(dont want to mention it before the other swappers get theirs)It was so nice to be your swapping partner, enjoy your week! (I'll show my swap treasures on my blog at the same time in December)
