I have received the most amazing creations in the mail yesterday and I want to share them with you.
First, from Meg of Committed Stitcher a wonderful needlecrafted masterpiece called a Temari:
Isn't it incredible???
Next, from Zoe Wall in Switzerland, a tag:
and an ATC to match:
OK, you won't believe this next ATC:
This was created by Donna of http://brynwoodneedleworks.blogspot.com/">Brynwood Needlework"
I tried to take a picture of one particularly magical detail...
(The arrows are mine) Under her jacket is a crystal heart and gears which keep working no matter what happens to her heart. The ruffles, the stitching, the tiny buttons, and even, if you can believe it, there is a soft padded um, bosom! I was stunned by the workmanship on this!
Last, but certainly not least, is a magic spring wand from Pam Colosimo a.k.a. Fidget Goblinglitler of Faery Rocks and Things:
Notice the book of Enchanted Takes? On the back there is a warning:
"Use only for good"
As if I would do anything else!
There is a tiny bag of Rare Ancient Faery Jewels."
REAL Rare Ancient Faery Jewels.
Am I lucky or what?
I am humbled by these works of heart.
