Swap Received: Fill a Mug

I have been swapping quite a bit lately, and I just received a swap package yesterday for the Craftster Fill-A-Mug swap. My swap partner, ellen-j, did WAY more than fill a mug… wow! She made so much nice stuff for me and included a cute flower pot shaped mug. She made a big mouse stuffy, an owl, a coffee cup, three pretty crocheted flowers, and some scrabble tile pendants. And some chamomile tea!

She crocheted so many cute things for me, including this little pirate owl with a sparkly gold eyepatch.The owl had this note enclosed with him:

This is Petey. He is very confused. Raised by parrots, he expected to spend his life ona pirate ship: sailing, looting, and providing companionship to some lonely pirate. He only recently discovered that he was, in fact, an owl, and is now searching for his biological family. Not wanting to bother with a hiding place for his gold, he had it spun into an eye patch. Learning to fly with just one eye is quite a challenge.

This crocheted mug is so cute! It is filled with a ball (that comes out). Adorable! Made me want to crochet a bunch of play kitchen stuff.

She also gave me these fab scrabble tile pendants. They look like a lot of fun to make!
