Everything is awesome! Annacharlotte, that lunch bag is stupendous!!! Did you insulate it with anything? Did you make the pattern up yourself?  !b those bags are so beautiful!! And I see you got chocolate from Ten thousand villages... my mom is a manager of that store and their chocolate is THE BEST!!!! And their fair-trade principles are unsurpassed!  PinkandDinky... I love that wall organizer you made! It is so gorgeous!

Annacharlotte, thanks for organizing such a great swap!! I had so much fun!

Everyone's packages are so amazing, I will certainly be joining future rounds of this swap!
I did buy my chocolate at 10 000 villages. The Espresso chocolate is to die for! By far my favourite treat!
They also have really delicious teas! It's a fabulous store in general.

Thanks for the nice comments on the lunchbag, everybody.  Gorgeous new stuff too!  I love that wall organizer.

Clarebear, the lunch bag is not insulated.  I deliberated a lot about whether I wanted to insulate it or cover it with vinyl and I decided against it.  I have an insulated lunchbox, but never bring anything hot or cold in it, so I decided if I didn't care, oneredboot wouldn't either.   Cheesy  And then the vinyl thing--just didn't feel very beautiful, though it would have been handy.  It's definitely machine washable, though.

And I did design the pattern myself, if you can call it "designing."  I cut up a paper bag I liked the size of, and added handles and a tab for the button.

Well, my pretties, with the exception of a few folks with special arrangements, this swap is kaput.  Thank you for being such a great group, and I'm glad you had a good time.  I'll definitely think about a round two in a few months, and will post another interest page when I do.  If somebody else wants to organize one before then, feel free. 

Hooray for beauty!  Hooray for use!

I love the grocery bag made by pinkyanddinky for ajanderson78!

I also love the lunchbag/napkin set made by annacharlotte for oneredboot!

Awesome job saving the earth!

Also I just wanted to add that I went to Ikea over the weekend and I bought a set of those prints that Clarebear84 had given to Quilted.  I love them!  I have to make some sort of wooden frame to put them on.

Just wanted to finally share the angelic items that I sent along to Therisa.  I'm pretty sure she loved them!

A watermelon hot/cold pack filled with beans:

And a pencil box:

This pic shows the iridescent finish I tried to give it.

Enjoy!  And thanks to all who participated!

Despite illness throughout, veludo managed to send off a great package, that was totally worth the wait!

All wrapped up:

All unwrapped - a table runner, beautiful napkins, some cute bowls and the cutest handmade cupcake pincushion and beautification for the iPod.

Close up on the handmades!

Thanks so much for everything, veludo!

Wow, definitely worth waiting for!  That cupcake is amazing.  What great details and stitching.  Someday I will learn to embroider in a professional-looking way...

I also love the color and button combo on the ipod case.  With the floral stripe, it looks like a cozy little bed all made up for a mouse to crawl into.  Smiley 

Thanks for all your hard work, and I hope you're feeling better. 

Okay, this is the official "fin."  Thanks everyone, and special thanks to babychel for her organizingness and her angeling.
