Wow, what great stuff!

I love the coffee mugs and the quilted place mats - both are gorgeous!

Holy cow, you guys.  What beautiful stuff!  I love the pincushion, and the sweet little message on the back.  Those placemats are just stunning.  Wonderful colors.  And the doll quilt is incredible!  Have you guys seen the collection of doll quilts the Wee Wonderfuls blogger has made/collected for her baby girl?  It's such a great decorating idea for little girlies. 

Man, I'm stuck at work doing nothing, knowing my crafts are unfinished at home.  I'm so annoyed with myself.

I was sooo spoiled!  I love everything violet_thistle!  Best of all, I feel like a made a good friend.


I totally agree!  This has been a truly inspiring swap for so many aesthetic reasons, but even more than that because of discovering kindred spirits and making such a good friend!  (Thanks, annacharlotte!)

Holy smokes! Those place mats are more like extra-extra-large items! They look like they took forever, and they are absolutely beautiful.

I'm so glad you all like my items, too! That biscornu actually took me way longer than everything else... I'm so bad at estimating the time it takes to make things!

About mid-way through I was delighted with the way they were coming out, but I thought, this is about as close as I'm ever going to get to a full sized quilt with these!  Shocked  One dimension of the squares was 1.5 inch cut, the other dimension varied from .5 inch to 2 inches if I remember correctly.

Wow! Such beautiful (and lovely colourful) stuff! Everyone's been so busy. It's great to see everyone's different interpretation of 'beautiful'... I personally found that one of the hardest things about the swap is working out what I think is beautiful, and then wondering if anyone else (i.e. my partner!) would find it beautiful... it looks like everyone's achieving that so far, though! ^_^

Hoo-eee!  Looky what I got today from camelama! 

Embroidered Dish Towels for Beautiful Dishes.  SO CUTE!


Embroidered Unbleached Muslin for created sachets (her family situation didn't allow her to sew them up)...

Yey, Bigfoot!  Yey, Buttons!

She sent along some organic hops and homegrown lavender to fill them! 

Nice smelling box to open, let me tell ya'.

Paper house-shaped boxes for me to decorate!  Camelama really read my profile and paid attention to my wists.

These are dangerous as they may jump to the top of my To-Do Queue.

Vintage Pyrex Refrigerator Dish!

I was concentrating on trying to get the background crocus into the picture, I didn't notice I was casting a shadow in the dish.  It's so unbelievably nice out today I HAD to take pictures outside.

Lampwork frog bead!  I'm going to have to learn how to do something with beads because he's so cute!

He's posed on the bottom of the Pyrex, so you  can see the nifty speckle pattern on the side.

Pretties to put on baked goods.  Nothing is less useful than ugly cupcakes!


Soap - I don't know which of my so-called friends she contacted, but no matter what they told her, I don't stink.  I don't!


Some postcards from her collection and the leftovers from the tags she thoughtfully used to label all these things!


I feel spoiled.  I know annacharlotte requested we post pics of each thing individually, but I hope the small groupings were close enough.  I wouldn't want the other swappers to get jealous of my package by posting THAT many shots (20).  I do have some closer-up photos if people are interested.

I love the pretty little dish towels!! Especially the cute froggy pair!! So cute!!! My mom used to use those silver sprinkles on her cookies when I was little. I always thought it was cool eating silver. Smiley I can't believe they still make them! Where do you find house shaped boxes? I want to decorate them too! Awesome package!

They say "for decoration only" on them, so who knows how many you could get away with eating.  I'm already trying to think up a way to use them sparingly so I can feel right about them being eaten.  Besides, I don't want to have baked goods be more glamorous than the baker! Wink
