AuHasard, i am so happy that they got there, and that you liked them!  i was worried about my sewing.  
Yeah, i had too many ideas for this swap, partly cos of when i was confused that it was way more points, and partly cos OMGosh, a BABY, you know what i mean?!

but you already spoiled me in your package, though: so many crocheted things and all the extras, and also like 2 weeks of cookies?!

here is a close up of the francophone baby shirts,

because i have to thank Éloise for helping me get the phrasing just right on the flags one!  cos French and Belgians getting along is hilarious (and also nice).
i hope i got the pacifist one right by myself.  it's meant to be sort of a pun, because it's like "i choose peace" and also "peace for me, cos i'm the future" ... at least i hope the phrase feels like that in French.

also if you look close, you can see how extremely wonky the sewing is. (couture maladroite?)  
i am going to pretend it's part of the hippie style, though. LOL

ha!  that is a good coincidence.  awful thing is, i totally forgot what day it was until seeing the other post, because i (A) am not teaching French in summer semester, (B) seem to have fallen off the local Alliance Française mailing liste and (C) had to turn in my professional self-evaluation yesterday (it got emailed at 11:39pm!) in which, oddly enough, i mentioned craftster as one of the places helping me brush up on French.

ScotSkippper402 sent me some vintage craft books as a thank you, and they are lovely. You were lovely to angel for. Thank you!



There are a couple of pics on my hosting of the inside. She knew of my interest in making costumes for my poppets.

Merci Bien Scotskippper
