I have to say that I love stalking swaps to see how people creatively interpret things.  Generally there are some outstanding items in every swap, but this gallery has been exceptionally outstanding - everyone went for broke and it would appear that everyone got great packages.  We all rock!  There are more right - I don't want it to end.  This also gave me inspiration on how to finish off an old garden set of mine in an Alice theme.

I agree, this has been an amazing swap.  And yes, there is more!  We still have 2 more people to send plus another 5 or 6 to receive.

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

OK, I have finally uploaded my pics.  Hard to take some of the pics, the dogs were getting quite curious and wanted to lie on everything!

Missing_Muse sent me a great package.  An Alice themed scrub top for work, a White Rabbit messenger bag, and a Mad Tea Party pillow.  There were also yummy chocolates in the box too, but those had to be whisked away for safe keeping.  Ginger developed a dangerous love of chocolate when she was a puppy, and I really don't want to pay for another stomach purging in her lifetime!

Here are the pics....

The scrub top (sorry, folded in half because the dogs would not move from the other half of the bed - very stubborn canines this morning!)


I love the Alice fabric used on the pockets and sleeves




The pillow - so very plump and soft.  Maybe that was why the dogs wanted to lie on the package?  Look at the front, it looks handpainted and gorgeous.


The back is fantastic hatter fabric


This lovely messenger bag.  I love the wide strap, and the fabrics she used.



The White Rabbit on the front flap



And the inside pocket - isn't it great!?



I love it!  I love love love the fabrics used, and the painting on the pillow - fantastic!

Thank you Missing_Muse!

Ahhh so many great packages!!  My mind boggles at all the possibilities!  I have to agree with everyone, this has got to be the most impressive swap I've ever seen Cheesy 

Few pages late, but thank you LuckDragon for the comment on the watch...it was a "let's see how this goes" so I'm glad it worked out so well Wink

Actually, I hate to admit it, but I cheated. Technically, the pillow is hand-painted. But not freehand. Originally I was going to make a silkscreen of the tea party image. The screen was a total failure. I ended up affixing the fabric directly to the screen with the source image stapled to the back, then put a lamp in the kitchen sink (dry, of course) and traced away with the silkscreeing ink and a paintbrush. It's effective, if you're willing to put  up with the headache the lamp will give you. I'm so glad you like it after all the drama it caused. (My family did not think that giving myself a headache was a good idea three days after the st----.)

I want to see your Alice themed garden tools!

Missing_muse.... Ooooooooh - I'm getting a headache just imagining it!  There is such a thing as sacrificing too much for art!  But I do love it, and the dogs are trying to steal it from me.  It's sitting on my bed right now, and I bet DH is going to try to steal it too for when he's watching TV!

PinkChick - that is an awesome clock!

That teacup pincushion is so cute! I like the tag from the tea bag sticking out, makes it realistic. And that clock rocks too!
