Did you ever get your jar quilt done?  Did I miss it?  Cry

Not yet - my casual job was busy this summer and I didn't get a chance to quilt.  I hope to start once we return home from holidays the 17th of September and maybe have it done by the end of October  Grin

Alright!! Simplyfussfree has FINALLY received her packages from me!! I think everyone knows that the poor dear had her beautiful wrap dress lost by the airlines...ever since I was on Craftster, I felt so bad for her...so, when the chance to pick her in this swap came up, I grabbed her!!  Of course, I wanted it to be a surprise, so I kinda "lied" about what I was making...

Anyway, she thought she was maybe getting a skirt or some sort of do-dad related to Istanbul (sorry for the ruse....)

Instead, she got this:



I can't believe it fits without my having all of her measurements! hee hee

It is fully underlined except for the sleeves since the fabric is a bit sheer:



And, because I was soooooo late in making this for her....I sent her this as well--she won't get to see it in person until she gets home, but she wanted me to post it!  Here ya go sweetie!!  I hope you will like it better when you see it in person!  It is a vintage kimono bag, made with obi brocade and silk!



I really enjoyed doing this for you, since you have been such a wonderful swapper with everyone you pick!!

I am a bit late in posting pics from my angel icebyrd67!!  I was suppose to get a scarf.  Well, I not only got a scarf (one of her first, in my favorite color and so nubby and fun!!)

 but I got my all time favorite things to get:  stationary!! So cute!!

I was going through a bad time and icebyrd67 cheered me up with her package!!  These are my favorites and will be kept for me to remember her kindness and support!!


You are a dear angel indeed!!

Sorry for successive posts but I must be the caboose of this swap  Undecided

I forgot to post the items that our fearless leader and organizer sent to me!!! Cotneyroo is an awesome knitter!!  I wanted knitted potholders for so long (ouch, the old ones I had were so worn out!!).  She sent me two large ones!! And, earrings!!! ha ha--I have already worn every pair she sent a few times since it was about a month ago that I got them (Sorry!!)...
see the little blue crochet ones?

My fav are the blue ones--perfect with jeans!!!

Thanks so much! I also loved your story on how you ran out of thread and "improvised"--ha ha--if you hadn't said anything, I would have thought it was part of the design!! ha ha

Wow - you are the caboose of the swap - but such cool goodies to display!

I am so glad that you got your dress!  The airlines just get my goat, ya know - When I came back from Germany before getting stationed in California okay a decade ago and then some - I had 4 pieces of luggage - and each piece went to a different place - and one of them even went to Hawaii!  I had not even been to Hawaii but my luggage did - and I had pretty much no clothes since everything I owned was in a crate going to California for my next tour of duty!


airlines..

yeah.. got my goat.

on a better note - what great goodies you got!!!!
