Communication is a big part of swapping, so it is great that you are doing that!  Real life gets in the way sometimes, and we all understand that...crafting and swapping is suppose to be fun, so glad you got your projects done, because better late than never!

Can't wait to see what you made! and hope you are dealing...hugs to you!

OK now I LOVe that fabric bowl--that's gonna be on the near future to figure out (or I'll go to etsy & buy one?)  Lovely packages! The sewcaddy is gorgeous & all the talents I see on this board bowl me over
...I look at all the stuff & the twitching starts
...back of the mind
...how did they do that? googling will come next I'm sure
...thinking new house craft room maybe need to be Master suite instead of smallest bedroom at this rate....
O I love what you sewn!
You can do that with Yarn?

see what happens when I finally get a day off?

ok back to my OWN Wips...but I just loved this exchange!

I love blues and that apron is so lovely!! I can see it matches at least part of your wardrobe!! Great!

I am so bad about using the totes for WIPS!  That one looks to be a good size!!

lovely birthday package!

sheriB, UT--you should try to make those bowls--they are so easy and so addicting!!  I have made six already and have them in use all over my house! The last one I made for myself is holding my little tins of Adagio teas!! One is holding my napkins from sajona and one is holding my handmade soaps! I love them!!

I arrived home from my spring break trip to Toronto, to TWO fantastic birthday packages!

I Squeeeeeeeeeee'd a lot when I opened both of them!

First, I opened a package from Tapestrymlp who claimed me for a crafting apron:

She chose owl fabric, for my love of owls!





It fits perfectly, and looks wonderful. Tapestrymlp also sent a yard of vintage floral fabric, which was on my whish list.



Secondly, I opened an amazing package from alwaysinmyroom!






She sent two stuffed owl pillows straight from my wist - I'm keeping the purple one, and smaller blue one is for my little sister who also had a march birthday and turned 21! I'll give it to her whenever she gets a chance to visit me.

Alwaysinmyroom spoiled me though, because she sent SO MANY extras:
-A set of handmade notecards with matching envelopes
-about 10 vintage buttons
-3 skeins of lace
-A latch hook
-and adorable children's book about woodland friends for me to cut up for ATC's.


Thank you BOTH! I love everything!

The apron is so cute and nicely made--love the shape and the fabric! We must have both had owls on the brain, eh, tapestrymlp!! Cheesy

I love paisley so it was easy to craft for you! Finally got to use up some of my hoarded paisley papers!
Can I just tell you how much lace I have?  omg--I made costumes for a dancing troupe and they gave me rolls and rolls of lace...big rolls and rolls of lace!!  The owls are my new addiction...I love making them!

Glad you had a great birthday...I know I did!
