Swap day 7: the last day :(

Today I'll show off the last of the lovely gifts from Stephcuddles. As so many other participants have already said, this was such fun and I didn't want it to end!

On to the goodies.

Little owl coin purse, with a lucky penny inside. At least, I'm calling it lucky since I didn't expect to find it there. My love for owls is on trend, but no less diminished by that fact. I'm not often on trend with things. But then, Everyone is fond of owls. Hehehehe.

Next, more stitch markers! These ones are shaped like tiny slices of pie and cake. Yum.

I should have expected this, since Stephcuddles has an etsy shop devoted to handmade stitch markers. They are so cute. Plus, these ones open for easy removal, which is always handy.

Mmmm cake.

So many new goodies to play with. Ahhh. Thanks again to Stephcuddles for the wonderful, thoughtful, and fun goodies, and also thanks to Eskimimi for organizing the whole thing.

Edited to Add: Apparently, I was confused and the pies/cakes are wine charms, not stitch markers! Whoops. Now I look a bit silly. Heh. Is it bad that I had never heard of wine charms before? Clearly don't get out much. At least now I know they can have many possible uses. Thanks for clearing that up!

  2. You can't give an empty purse, it must always have money in it, even if just one penny :-)

  3. Ooopsies :) the cake are actually wine charms but you can use them however! :) my teetotal friend uses hers as tea charms to put on the handle of the mug. It's a strange thing with knitters, every knitter i've shown them to thinks they are stitch markers but every non-knitter just thinks of wine :P glad you've enjoyed the swap presents!!!x

  4. Wine charms are excellent! After many drinking related parties at my husband's house, I'm very grateful for their ability to keep me from getting my glass mixed up with, say, his 50 year old uncle's glass.
