Cnds1992 sent me a great package and I promised to upload pictures but I have been horrid and have not done so!  I hope to get pics up by tomorrow - it was such a great package - and now my sewing machine's gas pedal isn't sliding so much anymore!  I've already been using my loot and have been a wretched swap partner and not posted pics - which by the way is one of my pet peeves!  I took pics - I will work on downloading/resizing/uploading/posting this evening!

Ahh! pictures at last!

cnds1992 sent me a very nice package - she did say that there was a follow up along the way since the pattern part was left out - so I get to post pics up twice!

She sent me a great assortment of fabrics for my art quilts - they will be perfect for them- I have not bought material like the batiks so it will be a super treat for me - that I suspect I will get an addiction to!

She also sent along 4 spools of thread - one is not shown = it's on my machine already  Grin
and that brown piece of material? Well, she had a sticky note on it to tell me to use it under my foot pedal on my sewing machine (ever since getting a new machine my foot pedal runs away from me!) and really does help out a lot! I am just so tickled that it did.  I was getting very frustrated.  It still walks away - but it takes a long time now for it to move out of the way.. before all I had to do was step on it a hair and off it went running... so I am so excited!

She also sent an amazing pair of embroidery scissors - also now in use!


and the craft?  Just what the sewing group needs!  All the other women in the sewing group made these caddies to go under their machines out of placemats - which I found to be rather well, tacky.  I am not a fan of placemats in sewing.. I know boo hiss,  but hey, my personal preference.  She made me a beautiful one - that is currently being used by my embroidery machine ... I will definitely have to make one for there since this one is perfect for my sewing group!

And on the back side of the caddy - so pretty!


and the front side...


My package to her should be arriving today - I am so nervous.  I hope she likes it all...!  She will definitely be swimming in zippers... and I still have enough zippers to pawn off I mean supply someone with in the next round of this swap.... please tell me there will be a next round!  I had such a blast with this swap!!

I don't even know where to begin!!   My swap partner, eye_on_sparrow, spoiled me absolutely rotten!  Shocked  I am so excited by all the cool craft kits and my beautiful apron.   I should not be able to say I am bored for a long time, with all the cooking and sewing I can do!!!!      Cheesy

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!


And here are the goodies:   (be glad I did not post all 93 pictures my 4 year old and 2 year old had fun taking!!!)

The whole package


My main gift!  a gorgeous apron,  my 4 year old took the picture!


The pocket detail with fabulous button!


Some awesome notions and fabrics.  (its like she read my mind.)


Some really cool kits.. (my boys are already begging for the plush dogs which you can't really see in the upper right hand corner because of the glare) 


Pages and pages of patterns for a bag, skirt, and aprons 



So... thanks again!   I had a lot of fun with this swap and am really pleased with my new stuff!

Lukenlarry the apron looks great on you and your 4 yr old takes good pics.  I love little kits so that's why I put together several for you.  Well the ribbon embroidery kits I bought on a great sale a while ago.  I hope you post some pics of you boys with their new dogzillas.

Oops!
I just realized that I left feedback for the people who have received FROM their partner and sent TO their partner.  I should have left it for people whose package have been received by their partner.
My mistake, I will update the feedback tomorrow.
Goodnight all!
