I just checked with the post office and my package was delivered. My partner is out of town this weekend so hopefully she will have a pleasant surprise when she gets home.

So I'm a first time swapper and I guess I hadn't thought of taking pictures of the things I sent before I sent them. I will know for next time!
I will at least tell you what I sent

*4 felt coasters in the shape of records with embroidered grooves in them.
*An apron and matching pot holders made from blue fabric with stars and bright green fabric (this was the first time I had ever attempted either of these things so they came out a little wonky but still cute)
*A "Pin-up pin cushion". It had a silohuette of a pin up girl in black felt on a hot pink striped cushion. She had mentioned that she didn't have one and was using a cookie tin lined with magnets.
*A green painted retro mug. I'll try to find the picture I used and I'll post it later.
AND
*some accessories. Some hair pins with black and white striped buttons glued to them and a necklace that I "screen printed". The necklace was my favorite and the only thing I took a picture of because I was so proud.
<br>

this has the hair clips too. In this photo they look more like eyeballs, but the buttons were white and silver striped. -> less like eyeballs.<br>

And this is what was painted on the mug.
Sorry that you have to use your imagination for the rest!

I messaged darkdaughter in hopes that she will post some photos of what I sent.

::edited to add photos and fix spelling errors::

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

Yeah! I'm glad it got to you and that you like everything. I almost kept the towel Cheesy. I didn't make the bag but I thought is was so cute I had to get it. The apron is vintage. The coasters are from Vintage drive in's.

I'm excited about getting my package. Smiley
