It's just occured to me that I've actually got all three items finished - but because one of them was such a SERIOUSLY easy craft - I'm tossing in another item.

Also, I lost track of how many things I was meant to make, and just went BLAM working on 4 or 5 ideas at once, so I've still got a few half finished things around. Ooops.

Added fun bonus. I didn't have to purchase anything for this swap. In fact... I think almost everything I've made has been reclaimed from what would have otherwise been thrown out.

every swap I participate in seems to turn me on to entirely new crafts in general. This craft I tried two new things and they both turned out a lot better than I had originally expected. So yay yay yay!

I am also just about finished with my third. But since I have to use my nimble fingers instead of a machine, I just hope my swap partner doesn't seem sidetracked by my sideways lines/stitches...

Woo-hoo! Team ollieorange has a sender! Good job Barbolot! I'm still not that far along. The husband of a close friend of mine passed away unexpectedly last week and I've been trying to be there for her.

That's quite alot of stuff you have used! I'm amazed how you managed to use so many different materials. Of course, I am trying to guess what the items are but I haven't got a clue!! Torn blankets and pillows and broken mirror?? Hmm....how did you use those??

The funny thing is, I have also used some of the stuff you mentioned for your package! Now that should keep you wondering Cheesy
