Since stillatthetop is unable to post pictures at the moment, she asked me to go ahead and put up the pieces I sent her.  These are for her "Nature" theme:

My first of two sets today is from stillatthetop:

Don't be scared, it's just a little bit of tasteful toplessness for La Sirena.   Wink  The bingo chips are a wonderful touch, and I really like La Muerte's scythe.

Next up are two pieces from rscowtown:



The images pop beautifully against the black background.  And yes, rscowtown, I definitely like the extra bit hanging off the edge.

Thank you for more wonderful pieces, ladies!

QUILLING!  What a perfect embellishment for puzzle pieces!  Consider that idea officially stolen for future rounds  Wink

I got pieces today from hazelly:



Oh, the craftiness!  I had some images like this posted on my Pinterest, I'm so glad hazelly went with a crafty theme!  They look wonderful, thank you so much.  Smiley

How clever to outline the puzzle shape with a "bee line"!

Two sets to share today.  First up, from seeuudee:



She said that initially she struggled finding inspiration with the theme (after working on themes for 10 different partners, I totally understand!), until she found this awesome Mayan-themed set of images.  They're wonderful, seeuudee, thanks so much!  She also sent copies of all the other images from the set, so I have lots of cool extras to play with.   Cheesy

Next are pieces from smmarrt:



El Hongo!  It looks kind of flat in the picture, but the mushrooms are actually painted wood cut-outs, they really pop against the background.  The pic also doesn't really do justice to the pretty background color on La Corona.  Thank you both so much, ladies!

Hi All,

I just wanted to confirm that for this round, even when returning finished pieces, we do NOT have to get a confirmation number, correct?  Of course I want everyone's pieces to be safely accounted for, but with 10 partners, I also want to make sure I can afford the postal bill.  Wink  (I am sending in bubble mailers for protection.)

5 out of 10 partners done.  I am getting them packed up now, so I can happily pile them up on the counter to mail tomorrow and get them off my craft table.  Besides going to church, my only agenda item for today is crafting for this swap -- so hopefully 12 hours from now, there will be another check-in with an "all finished" status.   Smiley

Only a week left 'til send-outs!   Shocked  I have a little catching-up to do: hopefully I can get some good work in each night after work this week.

Lovely pieces!  I especially like the comic text and the orange "J" monogram.

I have a couple more sets to share for my Loteria puzzle, first from sammylouise40:



A traditional "La Luna", and a non-traditional "La Xtabay" -- I love them both!  I had never heard of la xtabay before, but a quick Google search filled me in on a very interesting legend!  Great choice sl40, I think it is going to end up being one of my favorite pieces.   Smiley

And then, from Golden Sunshine:



Another La Luna (very fitting for her!  Group mates will understand what I mean  Wink ) and a La Rosa.  I would've never thought to add the colors of the Mexican flag, so smart!  Thank you for some more awesome pieces, ladies.

Gosh, now I'm feeling the pressure to deliver for my partners!

Both of the Disney pieces look just awesome!

Checking in for the week -- I have one piece done, several more in progress.  Since I'm completely done with all my other swaps, I have nothing else to work on but this swap for the next two weeks.
