Thank you everyone, it is fun craft for and with kids.  I love to see their faces when they are finished.  Look forward to the next swap.  Great job everyone.

My little Q's package from Penlowe, he really got spoiled.

The whole lot (palm tree decoration for bathroom, rainy day jar, Q cape, Pow shirt, Stealth Mode shirt, blue/red toy bag, cowboy/Indian Jones hat, reversible vest and mask)

Q Cape

POW shirt

Stealth Mode shirt

Vest & Mask

Hat (this is a really really nice hat, she says it wasn't expensive, but I don't believe it)

Rainy Day Bucket.  It was the first thing out of the box, he opened it and dumped it out immediately, played with it for over an hour (I had to drag him away to get him dressed so we could go visit grandma)

Close up of the fun rainy day bucket stuff

I will post action shots as I can take them, he's 2.5 and doesn't want to do anything that I want him to do, hopefully I can get some shots in the next week or so of him wearing the hat/vest/mask/cape.  I have to wait to paint his bathroom before I can put the palm tree up but I am hoping to get a lot of painting done this summer while my brotherinlaw is living with us and doesn't have a job, since he isn't paying us rent or anything I am going to put him to work helping me get this house all painted (as well as babysitting Wink)

Thanks again, Penlowe, great package, Q loves it, I love it, my husband even thinks it's awesome (and he usually thinks swaps are lame).

That package ROCKS! I love the palm tree, cape and tees!

Ooh I love that cape. How cute! And that palm tree decoration is too cool. And I love that POW shirt. I love everything. You got a super awesome package!! Oh, and Red Ink Pad + 2 yr old BOY = Extreme Adult Supervision. Trust me on this one, unless of course you have already planned on repainting the living room walls and making slip covers for the sofas.  Grin Grin

Okay, I was DYING to show off the quilt. I'm just totally in love with how it turned out and I could hardly WAIT until she got it so you all could see what I spent HOURS doing. Now that she's got it, I posted it in the quilting forum, so if you want to see more details (sorry, I can't help boasting!), go check it out.


I'm also glad the overalls fit him! I used the Ottobre Spring 2008 "Iguana" overalls pattern, but turned it into shorts for summertime.
