Itty Bitty Swap - C wants a PARTY Swap

This post is long overdue.  I received my Cupcake Swap Package from Raili (AKA Armida21) a few weeks ago now.  What a treat it was!

I actually received it while I was still pretty sick with a cold.  It was a really nice surprise to receive it during that yucky time.  Raili sure did spoil me!

I adore this handmade project bag.  It's big, which is great for schluping all my project stuff around when I am on the go, also, how amazing are all those colours?  They are all my favourite colours, with a ball of yarn package.  I can't believe she found a fabric that is so perfectly suited to me.  Well done Raili!

Here are all the yummy cupcake goodies I recieved: a candle, potholders, stickers, notebooks, notecards, post-its, a larger notebook and 2 yards of yummy fabric.

Check out these stitch markers!  Handmade by Raili and this was her first attempt at stitch markers.  They are so darn cute!  I really must get out my fimo one of these days!

The amazing knits.  I love the colours Raili chose, and everything she knits is flawless.  Another notebook too, and some chocolates, yum.

This isn't a great photo, I really should crop it or something (that's my big head in the shadow), but it shows a cute crocheted hat that Raili sent for baby, and a super cute onesie too!

Raili also included some Berroco Vintage (my favourite!) and some sort of silly toenail seperators.  I tried to use them, but my toes were too little!  hehe.  They are cute anyways!

Last, but definitely not least, Raili crocheted me some fruit for the nursery.  I am hoping to make a bunting / garland for the nursery (as seen in my nursery mood board) and these will look great when I finally get back to that project!

Thank you so, so, so much Raili for showering me and the baby with all of this cupcake-y love. 

This swap was part of the Itty Bitty Knits Group over on Ravelry.  I love those ladies.  They are so much fun and such a great group of women.  The swaps happen quite regularly so if you're a Ravelry member, be sure to check them out.

You can also check out Raili's blog right here.  She is incredibly talented and always posts lots of great projects.  I am very jealous of her current sock project (she wants to knit 1 pair of socks per week in May!).  I wish I could get into knitting socks, but it hasn't happened yet!

Thank you so, so, so much Raili.  You are truly a star swap partner and I am blessed that for this swap you were my partner!
