Thanks again for everything Auntiem.  I was really happy the "leg warmers" fit.  I wear a size 11 shoe, so it sometimes is difficult for me to fit into things.  They are so comfy, and just in time for my new yoga class to start. 

I checked usps.com, your package should be there, now for anxiety to start.

Whoo hoo! I've received today! I love everything!
A t-shirt with a 50's photo of a housewife and the saying "you mean I can still be a feminist and still like to cook?" which is exactly how I feel sometimes when I'm being especially "domestic".
A "Cowgirl Up" plaque with a photo of Annie Oakley that I just adore - it is on my desk as we speak!
A needle book with the woman symbol appliqued on it - I'm impressed if this was your first time doing applique! Great job and I really needed a needle book!
A stoneware clay Goddess figure! With the most beautiful glaze. You really need to see pictures - hopefully Pheather took some, otherwise I'll try to finish off the roll I have so I can post some soon.
Thank-you so much Pheather!

Great job Auntiem...the rosie headscarf is such a cute idea and the legwarmers are fantastic!! Everything turned out great and it sounds like the stuff Pheather sent is really cool. Can't wait to see pics. I've sent to my partner but shipping is supposed to take 6 to 10 days.  Tongue I just can't wait to know how she likes everything  Smiley (IT's my first swap so I am extra anxious!)

Thank-you for posting the pix!
I'm at work, so I haven't been able to try it on, but I'm sure the shirt will fit and it is so soft!

cool stuff Pheather!  How did you make the t-shirt?  It's so good!

Oh and does anyone feel like being an angel??  Selenate seems to have vanished leaving lilylola partnerless.  If any of youse want to angel (brownie points and FOC status!) let me know.  If not that's cool too... I'm going to post on the angel board.  Sigh.

More picture, I want more pictures!!  I wish everyone would receive already!  hehe.

I love that quote by Jackie O and I thought it was perfect for this swap.
I also sent her a copy of "What Every American Should Know About Women's History."

I did make the pendant.  It is sterling silver.  Thanks for the compliment.  I had fun making everything!

Wow! You made the pendant? That is awesome!! I love how it is a little off-centered and funky rather than just the standard woman symbol. It's just too cool. And the WW book is fabulous!
