Ugh. I am so freaking late sending it though and of course I feel horrible about it. Life happened, as it tends to do, and this was one of the projects that got moved to the back burner. Not that that's a good excuse, mind you. I'm just, you know, sayin'.
And then I was sick. And then we bought a car. And throughout all of these shenanigans I've been job hunting. Oh yeah, and I kept changing my mind about fabrics and stitches for the duckie too. This is actually the fourth freakin' attempt! Mind you, I didn't complete any of the others, but it was still frustrating. (Yeah, I know; whinge, whinge, whinge...)
Anyway, here's what I sent with the hoop - felt and floss in my swapee's favourite colours, plus a skein of fun Glow-in-the-Dark floss! Instead of wrapping it in tissue paper or gift wrap, I just bundled the hoop and floss up in the felt and tied it with the same green ribbon that I wrapped around the hoop.
Voila! A felty bundle of goodness, which is currently en route to it's new owner in the states.
Holy bad lighting, Batman! Have I ever mentioned that my apartment sucks for taking pictures in? The living room windows face north, so they never get any light, and there's a huge tree blocking the light from the east-facing bedroom windows. Seriously, we have to have the lights on every cloudy day. (Whinge, whinge, whinge...)
