Oh!  AlwaysInspired, I LOVE that fairy scarf Smiley  Would be a perfect addition to my patchy skirt from you, or other skirts as an accent belt!  We gotta do a personal swap sometime soon!

Okay, so I'm behind a month, but I want to post this great item anyway. Repentantangel and I did a personal swap last month. I made her a doll and she made me this great shrug. My Mom had to do a little altering so that is why I'm just now getting to post. I love it and the weather has actually been cool enough for me to wear it 2 times!!!
Sorry the pictures aren't the best, my hubby isn't a photographer.  Roll Eyes He also doesn't like to have to stand up from the couch to take pictures of me.  Cheesy
I love the open stitch! The color is perfect too. Ignore the fact that my hubby cut off my head.  Roll Eyes

Here is a photo of the back.

Thanks so much Repentantangel. I love it and plan on wearing it a lot this fall.

I am my grandma's girl

This post is much delayed, but should in no way imply that I am anything less than absolutely thrilled with my swap with n u l l g a l.

I posted a thread about what to do with a sheet I scored at Goodwill, and you'll see by the responses why my only choice was to immediately send it to n u l l g a l:

In return, n u l l g a l embroidered me the loveliest handkerchief.  The flowers have a special meaning to me and the handkerchief belonged to my grandfather before he passed away.  It was never used (I'm terribly sentimental, but even I have my limits!).  I wanted to share her lovely work here:

Full view:

The roses:

The lillies:

I am in total awe of n u l l g a l's mad embroidery skills!   I have zero patience for hand sewing of any kind, so this is a rare treat for me to own something so lovely.

Thanks again n u l l g a l!


I know a little garden close
Set thick with Lily and red Rose
Where I would wander if I might
From dewy dawn to dewy night.

i did a personal swap with the fabulous pinkanddinky -- here's what she sent me:

three light switch plates, a set of four coasters, a cute container holding three hair elastics with adorable fabric-covered buttons, and an AMAZING handmade ceramic mug packed with tea  Grin  i included the card in with the crafted stuff 'cause it's just so cute  Wink

close-up of the mug:

the pictures really don't do anything justice -- pinkanddinky has great attention to detail and everything she sent was flawless and exactly what i'd wanted Smiley -- but especially not that mug!  it has a gorgeous glaze and is very well made... i tried to learn wheelthrowing once upon a time and never came up with anything close to this!  Cheesy

thanks again for a great swap, pinkanddinky!
