I know it seems like forever since this swap ended, but I realize my partner had camera issues and wasn't able to upload pics of everything I made. So I figured better late than never!
An Addams Family Halloween sign...

A bat ring...

Two pendants...

Decorated bobby pins...

I'm so happy you liked the Winnie-the-pooh matchbox lindyv321!

The magnolia matchbox is beautiful!

I received an amazing matchbox from cabaute! She also picked my flying pig theme, which is so fun since both matchboxes I received turned out so different (plus, two piggies are better than one Cheesy).

Here are the different angles....

I love how cute and sculptural it is.

The goodies inside....

I love the little bird stamp!

Thank you so much cabaute! The matchbox is wonderful! Grin

Here is the beautiful matchbox I received from lindyv321!

She picked my flying pig theme. I love how elegant the box turned out, even though the theme is silly. It makes the box really fun.

Here are the goodies...

I love the little plastic pig! Thank you so much lindyv321! I will have to find a nice place to display it. Cheesy

I came home to find a wonderful package for elyxandra waiting for me! I love everything!

Here is the whole package....

She sent a great Easter box, which an extra foldable box! Funny thing about the cute beanie baby is I used to be obsessed with them when I was a kid. Growing up in the 90s they were so popular, I had a huge collection. I really love getting one and even funnier is that fact it is named Chickie. Last spring we raised baby chicks, each of my nieces and nephews got to name one. My youngest niece named her little yellow chick Chickie. So this brought back good memories.

On to the crafted stuff. Here is a group shot....

The little bunny pouch is great, I actually have one pinned. I guess I forgot to get a picture of the yummy cadbury eggs that were inside it! The bird nest is also super cute. Elyxandra did a great job of capturing my love of birds!

Finally, I wanted to get a close up of the chicken, which is just so cute!

Thank you so much elyxandra! I don't think I could have gotten a more prefect Easter package! Grin

What a beautiful butterfly quilt and a cute pic of pjherbert's granddaughter with it!!!

I know TroubleT has been very busy, so I thought I would some pics of the quilt I sent her. Hopefully, when she has some time I would love to see pics of the quilt at it's new home!

I went with her theme of Buddha. I thought it would be a fun challenge to make and I would get to learn a little about Buddhism, which is very interesting!

The shape of the quilt is suppose to represent a lotus. Buddha is also sitting on a lotus, which is actually 3d. It is hard to tell in the picture, but the main petals have wire in them which allows them to stick out and be shaped.

Here is the back...

Here is a close up of some of the detail...

The green fabric is actually straight off her pinterest! I thought it was really beautiful fabric so I wanted to incorporate it into the quilt. I ended up doing tons of hand sewing on the quilt. I also tried to do french knots for the hair, but I was having trouble getting it to look right, so I ended up going with glass beads.

Wow fun quilts everyone!

I received from TroubleT today! She made a beautiful tree quilt!!!!!

Here is a close up of the great details. I love the little door at the base of the tree! The fabric choice for the tree is awesome, since it really looks like tree bark.

Thank you so much TroubleT! I love the quilt! Grin  Cheesy Wink
