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!!!

I find it funny that you really love the pumpkin side! Personally, I loved the other side myself and wasn't overly enjoyed with the outcome of the pumpkin.
But I do guess that pumkins were on your list, while leaves were not (oops! I just love them too much! XD )

Either way, I'm so glad you liked! <3

Yay, gallery! I like the square leaf thing Smiley
It's funny about the sunflowers, they're really not autumnie to me... Sunflowers bloom in summer here, sorta. Generally august I guess, which is a warm month here - I've never seen one when the weather has turned to autumn.

Yes, there is already a knitting project living in the bag...and my dad's half knitted scarf thanks you profusely for giving it a home. (instead of the floor!)

I love it!  thanks so much, Pibbgirl!!!

I love that bag!  Those leaf squares are one of my favorite patterns - I have a quilt made from that same square except that I made the overall squares bigger.

I love the lining of that bag Smiley

I received a gorgeous hat today from tigercub_wabbit, and brought it to work so I can take pics of it before it's dark.. (when I get home around 6pm it's past twilight but not quite dark either - weird autumn light) Aaand right now they're shading the large windows behind me, so I have to hope they haven't shaded the lunchroom too, or I won't get a pic with decent lighting >_<

Here's what I got from tigercub_wabbit!



Isn't it gorgeous? It even matches the necklace I put on this morning, before i'd even picked up the parcel Wink I may even have a perfectly matching scarf (and I don't have a lot of 'em)

Hey people! I'm waiting for tomorrow's lunch to finish cooking, so I figured I'd post pics of what I sent tigercub_wabbit while I'm waiting, since I've already got the pics uploaded for feedback from friends during the swap process Wink
As an extra, I sent this shrinky dink necklace



But the main feature was a swap journal, 'cause she'd listed a swap journal as one of her wants. It's an open backed coptic stitch journal with fabric covered front and back (from a salvaged hardback).



Just opened...


Each "swap process" is given four pages, 'cause she said she tends to write a lot - figured the standard "one page" wouldn't be enough Wink These are the first two pages


Second two pages
Back opened
Last pages, for notes

Thank you Grin I was very pleased with both - I've never made a book of this quality before, just soft covers that haven't been reworked
