Secret FOC Swap

As promised, here are pictures of what I've received so far in the "Secret Friend of Craftster" Swap:

-First Package-

For the first package I received a small covered journal, a pair of knitting needles w/turtles on the ends, and a little red bag filled with knitting needle point protectors and stitch markers. They all came wrapped in gorgeous tissue paper which has since been made into envelopes.

  • That brooch (sp) is so pretty! That messenger bag is really nice. I have made messenger bags before, but never any that nice. I think I may make another one for my knitting supplies...

  • Hail fellow Utah knitter! I must say, you really scored on the swap. I've been tempted to do a craft swap, but I'm such a procrastinator, I don't think I could finish in time.

    Your profile says you like Josh Bell... do you play?

  • You're from Utah too!? I don't know any other knitters here at home except the little-old-lady-next-door who only ever make dish cloths (boring!). I do play violin; I have for quite a number of years (I started when I was tiny).

  • I graduated with a degree in music (not practical, but I wouldn't have it any other way)... you should join the Salt Lake City Stitch n Bitch (assuming you're in the area.) You can check out the details here:
