First off, ADORABLE children!!  They are just beautiful...

Yay!  You like it, you really, really like it!  lol  I must confess, I didn't actually make the whole lap blanket.  I just appliqued the owl and put a backing of sorts on it.  And I am learning to sew, so don't look to closely at the wonky seams!

I felt a little funny sending you a flesh colored polymer clay owl.  But that was the only color I had to work with the night I decided to try working with clay.  I had bought it to try and make a face for a wooden clothespin doll and never gotten around to use it.  I was going to paint it, but decided to leave it and let you decide how to "embellish it".  I know, I wimped out!

"Japanese sashiko fabric"-  hmmm, and all this time I thought it was some kind of batik!  lol  Now I have to go google it and find out what it is...

Glad your little one liked his stuffie and the owls to color.  I tried to sew the eyes on extra well, knowing it was going to a house with little ones. 

Ok, good...  What a lovely swap this was.  I hope we do another one in a few months!  We had such great things in the gallery. 

Oh, and you almost didn't get the blanket.  My little ones loved it and wanted to keep it!

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

I'm posting pics of all the great swap goodies I got from Tuesday!

First, a fantastic collection of little owlies...they chill on my window by my couch and look at me all the time with their little button eyes. Nothing is actually pink in the photo, nor is that owl in the front missing an eye...my camera and I have to have a talk.


Second, two owl greeting cards where the owls are made out of sheet music...secretly, I'm just going to hang these on my wall and never send them.


Then, these gorgeous owl wall plaques that I can stop lusting over...they are so fantastic!


Finally, these adorable owl bobby pins that I haven't stopped wearing since I got them:


Thanks so much, Tuesday!

is this done now or do we still have more to come?
is it time for another one yet? ha ha.

We have one package left to be received. As for another swap, I would be happy to organize again, but maybe not until late summer or fall. I've got to start diverting my craft budget to a flower and yard budget for the next couple of months as it warms up. Of course, if someone else wants to organize, I say go ahead and do it! I would probably sit it out if it comes up too soon though.
