Swap Spoiler!

Well, it really shouldn't be, since FedEx says my partner's package was delivered. The swap was on craftster and the theme was Forest Friends. My partner is a fellow knitter, and wanted clothes or dangly jewlery and she liked turquoise, black, silver and gold. So here is what I sent:
Pretty Stitch Markers! I wanted to do owls, but the most forest-y thing I could find were some dragonflies.

Deer Shirt! This was my first time stenciling, and I'm very pleased with the results. I found a couple of deer pictures online and tweaked them around to my liking. The white flower tiles I used for the background were stenciled using a brass embossing plate I got off the clearance rack a long time ago. Hooray for impulse buys that actually get used! Here's a close up:

I also made her some dangly leaf earrings but I forgot to take a picture becaus I was in a hurry to get it in the mail. I'm leaving for the great country of Costa Rica tommorrow and I'll be gone a whole week! Please don't foget about me, I will return with pictures of monkeys and hopefully a sloth.
