So glad you liked everything! Thanks for posting pics so quickly too :PI am going to post what you sent me today, promise Grin

There is another sequel to The Committments -The Van. And both The Snapper and The Van were made into films too.

The bookmark does says Sally's Book though I had worries about the grammar afterwards Tongue Thanks arms_of_eire - nice to meet another Irish swapper. I don't think anbout my username being Irish most of the time I am so used to it now.

I was really happy with how the bag turned out. I wasn't sure about the wall hanging.

Saor, I love the kimono tote, and that applique is amazing! I can't believe you did that by hand - it looks fantastic! The bookmarks are cool, too.

I can't believe I did it by hand either - I wanted to sew something because Sally and I both share a love of Asian fabric/kimonos. My go-to crafts are knitting and jewellery. I realised that in a battle between me and my sewing machine the sewing machine would win - but I can sew by hand:) I envisaged the finished project as different to how it turned out but I like it.

Ack! I must have picked the worst time to go away from craftster for a few days! So many amazing packages, and I seem to have just realized that my partner meant for me to post better pics of the stuff I made her. Here. In this thread. Me not her. I feel a bit of a doofus  Tongue (pumpkin face! Happy Halloween everyone!!!!!!!!  Grin).

Actually, I totally meant to post some pics of my favorite bits from your photos that you have in your gallery...but new boyfriend and halloween got in my way *guilty look*
