Yay, I received my loot (yes, loot because it is a treasure) from Norah Monday. She did a wonderful job and sent so much more than I was expecting.
First extra an apron for my son. He loved it and wanted to wear it all night.

Second extra an apron for my daughter, who especially loved the "ducks" I know they are chicks but she insisted and made lots of quacking noises.



Third extra a panel of a cowboy, again my son loved this.


Fourth extra (yes fourth!) a panel of a country girl, daughter was still making quacking noises.

And lastly my gorgeous apron with lots of detail.




I love all of it and will keep the kids aprons forever to pass down, they are so precious. As for the panels I am thinking either little throw pillows or just framing them for the kids rooms. I can't believe how much Norah sent and everything is beautiful and wonderfully stitched. This has been a great first swap for me and so much more fun than I would have ever dreamed. Thank you to our wonderful organizers.
Sorry for the picture quality, I am in desperate need of a new camera. Norah, if you have better pictures of the amazing detail please post too.
Thanks again.

Oh my gosh! Those aprons are sooo cute (and so are the kids). The panels are darling too. I love that little cowboy! Norah, your stitches are beautiful.

Oh, my! That is a gorgeous loot for sure! The children's aprons are just precious, and I love the birds on your apron. I love the vintage look of all the designs! Well done!

thank you all!  and the vintage look isn't a coincidence, the embroidery patterns all came from an estate sale and are definitely not new.  Smiley

and PY, you're right...she absolutely deserved it.  What an awesome partner!  And I'm sorry I made you wait, especially on your first swap.  But your kids are adorable and I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

The embroidered flowers on the apron and the hand crocheted border were done by a woman I know who has been embroidering for more than twice my lifetime.  Shocked  So don't look too closely at my stitches, especially in comparison to hers. Wink

Oh Norah, I didn't know the border was hand crocheted too. It is beautiful and I will take a picture of that as well. I am just sorry that my 6 year old camera didn't do it all justice. I have heavily hinted that a new camera would be a great Mother's day gift, so we'll see how that goes.
I really do love it all, thank you!
