Yikes! I'm eight pages behind
Mamaphunk -- Don't think twice about not having done enough. I love the single cigarette with the smoke spelling out "Alone." Have to admit, I'm not a smoker myself and while I hate the reality of smoking -- disease, smell, cost, addiction -- I love the romance of smoking, if you know what I mean.
j_q_adams -- Your hummingbird and lotus flowers are so pretty. Have to admit though, I'm curious what you would have done if you'd gone the Soviet propaganda route.
fenifer -- I have a book of Pennsylvania Dutch embroidery patterns too. I haven't tackled any of them yet, but now I'm thinking I should move that up on my list. I really like the direction you went with the teardrop shapes.
cupcakeguru -- I'm pretty sure my Barbie had that bus!
Nice job. And cowboys and cats are two of my favorite things, so you can never go wrong mixing them together. Best of both worlds.
ritapizza -- I already said how much I love that scooter, but it must be repeated. My scooter dealer just had a baby girl. If you happened to keep a copy of your design and would be willing to share, I'd love to stitch up a onesie using it.
Lilyvanilli -- Those birds are two cute. It's amazing how many different looks you can get from something as simple as birds.
greenlightgo -- It might sound funny, but I'm really digging the grass around the tombstone, especially the two shades of green.
IamSusie -- Those chips seriously look good enough to eat. I don't think I would have looked at just the design for those and thought they could look that good stitched up. You picked the perfect colors, everything.
~Glenda -- Your fish looks like he came straight from an old Warner Bros. cartoon. Like he's going to break out into song at any minute!
sarahj2001 -- I don't know what I would have done with an Indonesian-themeed towel, but your group has really stepped it up. Your colors are great and the satin stitch on your flowers gives them neat spiky look.
rectangel -- Putting all of us to shame again, I see.
Where does one come by "old-fashioned" variegated floss?
I Sew Cute -- That waitress is adorable. Where did the pattern come from. (Oh, and feel better.)
Whew! Sorry if I missed anyone. Needless to say, this swap is the best. We need to make sure it's not a year before we do it again.
