Merry-Go-Round - Merry-Swap-Around

Jump on our merry go round and join a group of artists/crafts-women from around the world as they link hands and tell you a little bit about their lives in craft.
Do look up the answers from the rest of this band of crafters (links to your left).
If they haven't posted yet, remember we all live in different time zones and check again later...
This month's theme:
A Merry Gift from a fellow Merry-Go-Rounder: mine came all the way from the Netherlands, sent by Kim, of Vilt à la Kim!




I love this!



Look what I got: gorgeous packaging for starters.


Inside: a wonderful Magical (I say) Roving Eye Ring with a Seafaring Cuff Bracelet. All of Turquoise and Blue. I love the colours, and I love the detailing in that soft, wavy foam-like line! Just when I'm beginning to yearn for the sea and a great big gulp of sea air...

Also, I'm told this is all merino and silk—some of my favourite materials...

THANK YOU KIM!

My hand-made gift went to Alison, if you'd like to check it out...

HI Agathe,
I love your name for it: magical eye ring, that suits the ring well.
I hope you will enjoy wearing them.
