The big reveal!

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

I'm guessing mine came from Camper as it's from Queensland?

Eli - will you post a pic of your finished faerie? I'm thinking of making packs to sell and I'd love to see what you come up with :D


Of course I will VP, that was my plan! I figured it would make a better picture when done!

I need to do some more sleuthing, but it's a Welsh postcode so I'm thinking possibly CherryPie or maybe Fullhouse if she posted it while staying with family as a red herring?!



I've just realised Cherry wasn't part of the swap so that leaves me with Fullhouse, unless I've missed anyone else with a Welsh connection? Will pop a pic on Flickr shortly. The basket is the perfect size to keep my embroidery hoops in so has become my WIP basket. I really love it.

Pleased to see my swappee liked their gift, though I haven't been guessed yet :D


Yey! It was me. Glad you like it!

Am I the only person who still hasn't got their parcel? Our local post is so awful, we always get everything late.

Well a google search :oops: leads me to Gizmo then?! And some sneaky red herring-ness with a British postmark!


Yes it was me :D MIL was visiting so I asked her to take and post it when she went home, I figured a Barcelona postmark would be way too easy :)


Thank you so much! And glad the postmark was tricky, was worried about my sleuthing!! :wink: Ds' reaction when he saw his was just so cute :)

My parcel arrived today! :)

Muncher and I opened it together - he got a lovely book of felt landscapes and felt boats and animals and construction vehicles to put on them. I think that I can safely say it is a big hit - I got a lot of 'MY book' and 'MY animal' and 'MY digger', he wanted to take them to watch Peppa while I got dinner ready, he brought them to the dinner table (had to battle curry hands to keep them clean) and then after he'd had his shower and got into his PJs and read his story he wanted to go back to the table to grab them. I managed to pry some from his claws as I put him into bed but he is sleeping now still clutching at least 2.

And I also got a mix tape - I love mix tapes! - which I haven't listened to yet but will put in the car to listen to tomorrow.

So thank you, we love them...! And unless there has been some more sneaky postage manouvering, I am guessing StJ as it was from Canada!

It arrived this afternoon! Hurray! It's a brilliant string of bunting with Iz's name and some diggers/cranes/bulldozers. Iz was very excited looking at the pictures - they succeeded in taking his attention away from his Richard Scarry book of 'Cars and Trucks and Things That Go', which doesn't happen very often!

I will put it up in his room tomorrow and take a picture.

It had an Eire postmark, so... thank you misschief? That's guessing from memory, I may need to go back and check people's locations.

Yes, me. No point trying to be sneaky with a Canadian address! Glad the book is a hit with muncher, P was reluctant to let me mail it ;)

Yes, it was me! I'm so glad the colours were right. I really loved some of those fabrics too, so I'm glad you liked them. It's so nerve-wracking making something for a grown-up: I normally only make kiddie things. I have been meaning to try out the infinity cowl for ages though. Let me know how you get on with it.

Now that's just bloody genius. What a brilliant idea!
