I'm posting the pics of michelleames package from me in here, so they will be with all their swap brethren. You might have already seen them in the swap thread, but you know.

Group shot:


Detail on bag:


Detail on strap:


Bath salts in Marilyn container:


Scarf:


In person, the scarf is much more the color in the group shot. The color doesn't take a great picture; all the pics I took are weird colored too.
I'm so glad that she liked them!

Yahoo!  My partner, the darling Cabin Fever, and I have both received and opened.  Look at all this cool stuff!

The tea towels were inspired by my love of caffeine, and my dogs, Coffee and Mocha.  Cabin Fever, you've sooooo captured the essence of Mocha-ness with that orange flower button.  (Coffee is my avatar.  You can tell she's more reserved by nature.)


True swap love, right here, as my partner made me a custom toe-warmer suitable for wearing OVER a cast, can't wait to have the surgery now so I can try this out.  It's fleece-lined, so it should be extra toasty! My foot surgeon and his staff are going to love this!



Also toasty, my new favorite slippers!  Softest yarn ever, plus fleece-lined.  Love 'em.  Love the color, the fit, the stitch, love 'em.



Some Turks Knot coasters, suitable for smushing with a cup of coffee.  I am a multi-beverage at a time woman, so more cool coasters are always welcome.



And, finally, my faaaaaaavorite item -- some Elvis Costello stitch markers.  I love me some Elvis, and now I've got the craft-geek gear to really show it.



Cabin Fever -- Margie -- you are so awesome.  Thank you for everything!

All the swaps look great!

I'm so glad grenouille78 liked her stuff. I got my package today and I LOVE everything! I'm new to this posting pictures thing so, lets see how it goes:
Before I opened it-
You'll notice that the inner package is wrapped, so even more suspense than I expected!


My beautiful frog box:


Everything all together:

From left to right we have my beautiful and soft cloth napkins, coffee and crocheted coffee in its own coffee cup, and the prettiest little dress for my little girl! It's all great, but the dress is amazing! I'm going to try to get a shot of dd wearing the dress later. It really does fit well. It was all I could do not to take dd out in 30 degree weather wearing her new spring-y dress!
What a great swap! Smiley

HAHAHA!  I can't believe that little toe warmer actually fit! I'm so glad, I had to use a rubber boot for a pattern, plus I had never made anything like that so wasn't sure how to even go about it!   

But wait there's more!  I am the one who was totally spoiled by SummerGirlfriend!!! We actually think alike in some ways! 
Coffee seemed to be our theme!  This hot mat even has a coffee cup image in it, too cool. If you get the chance take a look at the Christmas rug SummerGirlfriend did for her mom, and now I have some rag crochet too!!!!


With matching coasters, love that country look!

And look we match again! Kitchen towels with a coffee theme!  Thank your mom for the heart buttons! And the coffee cup fabric on both are great, match so well with my kitchen:


Some new potholders ( I can now put away the Christmas ones I've been using!) A Crochet magazine, which I don't get in my town, and now I have a huge bunch of projects I want to make! Some lip balm, not just any lip balm, but Bou lip balm (made from real caribou's  Wink )and a cute moose keychain.  Believe it or not I love the Target sack and the cute little caribou paper bag!  I don't have Target in Alaska, and I've been wanting some bags with red in them (another project).


You've been a great partner SummerGirlfriend! I hope I get you for a swap partner again! Just think how much time you'll have after your surgery to craft........

Yes, sadly no Target, but it makes going south so much fun!  I go to Target and call all my friends back home while I shop..........

grenouille78, that little dress is so cute, makes me wish I still had a little girl to dress up.............maybe grand children someday...........
