OK - prepare to be blown away! I was totally spoiled by TheSapphireMoon - every single item was fantastic and perfect for me.
My themes were:
2-shades of blue
5-words of encouragement/inspiration
#1 - LEMONS, she sent me a wonderful beaded wallet & a lemon kitchen timer.
I LOVE the lemon wallet - it had to go straight into my purse to keep the DD6 from snitching it!
skipping #2 for now - it's my favorite and will close out the wonderfulness!!
#3 - BUTTERFLIES, I got a tote, a wallet, a cell charm, a necklace & some stickers.
The brown background butterfly fabric on this bag is just amazing - I couldn't love it more. And the purple necklace is just the right length & goes great with my new purple work shirt.
#4 - GARDEN PARTY, she made me washable fabric placemats for my table. They are reversible in great coordinating fabrics. They look great on my kitchen table!
#5 - WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT/INSPIRATION, beautiful bookmarks (which are in hiding from the DD already), two frames & two keychains.
& now back to my most favorite of all:
#2 - SHADES OF BLUE: the most amazingly wonderful & comfortable apron top ever!
I don't take the best pictures, but this top is so amazing that it deserved an action shot. I love how long it is & it is so professionally made - I couldn't have bought one and been as happy as I am with how this one turned out!
You have the best taste in fabrics, TheSapphireMoon. I am so blown away by your generosity and skill. Thank you for making this my best swap EVER!
