#stitchmarkerswap2017

Today my stitch markers arrived from the stitch marker swap I told you about here.  And what I have learned is that I need to step up my stitch marker game!! What I received in today's package was art!  But don't worry.  I have some ideas about the next swap.  And, oh yes, there will be a next swap!

The girl who organized the swap sent hers on a large ring.  After I took pictures and tagged the makers on Instagram, I put all my markers on the ring. 

She made a macaroon progress keeper and a little glitter filled glass ball.

Here we have a sweet little bird; a sea turtle, two beaded stitch markers, and a celtic bead and a natural stone.

The pink card has these really neat beads.  Then there's the pumpkin and candy corn.  There are two little fishes, and another unusual bead that came alongside a jingle bell!
On the black card is a windmill.  There is a 70's retro roller skate and cassette tape.  Two other beautiful beaded markers, and a Christmas ball and Christmas bulb round out the collection in this picture.
I think my favorite three are in this picture.  The white card came with a pretty beaded marker, a DINOSAUR, and a DONUT!!  Below, is one made from a sliver of cork...so cool, and another beaded marker.  All the beaded markers are unique, which is cool.
Finally, these lovely stragglers didn't come with tags.  You have an owl, a rose, a bead, a Christmas tree and a ball of yarn.

And those are the markers I received.  I probably have enough WIPs to use them all right now. I won't, but I could.  For now, I'm just going to sit and look at them on my ring full of stitch markers.
