I received from love2teach this morning. I have to say I'm in love with the colors and fabrics she chose - I have this love affair with corduroy, and I really can't explain it. Some of the black patches are cord, and so very very soft!
the potholder and the extra she sent - a lovely crocheted bag - crocheted in the tiniest stitches! I can't imagine the patience it takes to crochet something so intricate!
And, the scrappy side of the potholder, with the bag in it's own little pocket!!!
Although kinda stressful at first, once I figured out how to make it work for me, this swap was a blast! Hope she likes what I sent out!!
I received from amalgam a few days ago, and am in LOVE. the stitching is so tiny and precise, and it's all done in metallic thread!!! So, straight from my wists, I give you:
Now, she didn't send it like it appears. Apparently the hoop broke in transit, and i didn't have a hoop the same size as she used, so Ihad to do some emergency surgery. However, even DH was impressed with the stitching, so that's got to tell ya'll something! Thank you so much, AMALGAM!!!
