Are you all ready to be wowed  Shocked    Shocked

EvilTadpole sent me this beautiful picture


                        


It's even more fantastic in person and it's large (18x12) and it's going to be perfect hanging on my wall next spring (tulips are my spring theme.)

I'm soooooooooo happy with it, can you tell  Grin

She also included some green fabric that I will put to good use long before next spring!

Looks like I have the honour of being the first to post a picture of what I received.

Astica sent me (in record time!) 3 paintings that will fit my fall theme wonderfully.


             


The heart shaped pumpkin is actually 2 sided and the other side looks like a tree in fall foliage.

THANKS!!!

The person I was sending my swap item to finally got it today so I can post a picture of my brown item!


                       


She was looking for something related to Hansel and Gretel and so I found a photo on the internet (that was not under copyright), printed it on to fabric paper, fused it to the material and sewed up the bag.

Does anyone even look at this anymore?  I hope so, so that someone will see the fantastic package I received today.

I was picked in round 23, then flaked on and so an angel was found for me.  Then, believe it or not, the angel flaked on me so another angel was needed.  xladyluckx, the co-organizer, decided she would be that angel and today I received from her.

She sent 5 spools of thread in great colors and 3 tea towels that will hang from my stove handle.  I'm so happy with those, too!

Remember a few days back I posted this picture of something craftydeb had sent me?

             


Well, today I took one bottom and 8 leaves and sewed them together to form this:

I needed to start with this quote from craftydeb because after you see what she sent me, none of you will agree that her package fails in comparison to what I sent her.

Quote from: craftydeb
Keep in mind we AGREED to keep it small - and look what she did - yes, she is probably grinning like the cheshire cat right about now.  I am sending out her package tomorrow which will ultimately fail in comparison in my opinion.

So, here is what we AGREED to:

                          Some towels to hang on my stove:

                                                       


Little boys playing - they are embroidered onto squares and I'll make them into something (as soon as I figure out what)

                                      


                                                     Nativity ornaments:

                                      


                                 Other ornaments (the crocheted ones are her own pattern):

                                      


                                These interesting items will eventually make up into 3 bowls:

                                      


And, the items we didn't agree on but she threw in anyway  Grin

A fantastic fabric bowl (I couldn't get a good picture but the lid comes off and there is a great bowl inside)

                                  


             A sunflower embroidered bag, chapstick holder, kleenex holder, notebook holder and a travel sewing kit:

                                  

Plus, not pictured is a googly eyed pen and some fish crackers (so I don't have to travel way down under and steal Tanza's (oh right, she ate them all already))

Now, don't you all agree with me that Deb sent me a HUGE amount of stuff and we are even  Grin

Call me impatient if you want (it's okay, I have large shoulders and can handle it) but 2 of the people I sent to received last week and haven't put pictures up yet so I thought I would post the ones I took before I sent.

I claimed Dulcinea for a crocheted lap blanket.  I've been making and collecting 12" squares for the last few years and have tons of them (literally!), so I decided to put a few together and make this afghan:


           


Five of the squares were made by me and the rest I've collected on Craftster and another board I used to belong to.

Then, I claimed Samsara for a rainbow necklace and came up with this idea:


                           


It's 6 strands of beads representing the colors of the rainbow (yes, I know there are 7 colors in a rainbow but I figured indigo and violet were so close in color I would combine them into one)

Sunspotted received the large bag I sent her but can't get pictures up right now so I offered to post the picture I had taken.

                           
                       


It's made from denim and lined inside with a lighter material.
