I got my last bookmark in the mail last week. I'm sad it's over so soon. Sad But this bookmark is a wonderful way to finish my collection. It's from CuriousCoffee and it's a lovely, steamy thing:



It's so hard to get an accurate picture of it, but it's in two layers. The bottom layer is black cardboard with the gears etched into it (with a craft knife I suppose). The top layer is clear plastic colored with alcohol inks and embossed with a glaze pen. Maybe this pic will show it a little better:



Thanks, CC! This bookmark is absolutely fab! This swap has been so much fun!

I got a lovely quote ATC from grapeicepop:



I love the pretty, colorful swirlies! The quote is, "I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be." by Douglas Adams. I love it! Thanks, gip!

Lovely quilts, ladies!
I used a teeny bit of stash to make a crocheted bunting. I love these colors so much together!





I got the pattern off Ravelry. It's pretty fun. I can see myself making a lot more of these in the future. Smiley

I just got a spectacular bookmark in the mail from Mrs Shak. It's a zentangled Sherlock Holmes!



Isn't it amazing? Thanks, Mrs Shak!

Not to worry, zkatom, I'll post it! This is what I sent her for her Jane Austen theme:



It's something Mr.Bennet said in Pride and Prejudice. I love his one-liners!
I tried a new glitter-splatter technique on this so that's what the gobs of pink sparkle are.

I got my bookmarks from jillybeans today!

The first is a wire one with lots of fibery, ribbony goodness and some cutie beads. I feel like I'm 6 again (which is a good thing Cheesy ).



The second is a gorgeous watercolor. I love the colors! Unfortunately, the PO bent it a bit. Cry It's still beautiful, though, and I'll use the heck out of it!



Thanks so much, jilly! I love both bookmarks so much! I'll leave you with an action shot of all the bookmarks I've received thus far playing together:



The swap anxiety! It burns!

I love that granny square! The colors are gorgeous!

I've been procrastinating about the bookmark swap, so I've been crocheting. Embarrassed
But hey, I finished a blankie for my mom's chihuahuas and finished off some yarn in the process! And the ends are woven in, which for me is a real achievement.



 Roll Eyes You can see where I ran out of green and pink. Roll Eyes I wanted to do a ripple blanket because the only crocheted FO that my mom's ever made was a ripple afghan, so I felt like I was doing some heritage crafting (or something).

I got an envelope full of swap anxiety in the mail today! Wink
The lovely and talented Mountains and Clouds sent me 2(!) gorgeous bookmarks. The first is hand-stamped (including the background) with hand-carved stamps. I love the bright colors and the houndstooth pattern! The second is a gorgeous watercolor of her favorite swimming beach on O'ahu: Kalama Beach (she lives in Hawaii). I have a favorite swimming beach, too...2000 miles away! Sad All jealousy aside, this is a gorgeous bookmark, almost too pretty to hide in a book. Both have hand-stitching which makes my tactile little heart so happy!



Thanks so much, MandC!

I've been too busy to post, but I've been lurking and loving what everyone's doing! Smiley

I crocheted some baby hightops for my soon-to-be-born nephew. I was trying to decide on the color when I remembered this month's challenge, so I did red!
