Love the bracelet! I'm not a huge twilight fan, but i am a fan of those loaded charm bracelets like that. Grin

Package 3!

I received package 3 from Retro_Rose! It was a huge box!

Lots of fun fabric!


Yummy tea, yarn, and cloth napkins! I almost took the napkins on a picnic with my boyfriend today, but I wanted to keep everything together for pics


Cupcake baking kit


Cute little apron to wear while I bake cupcakes!


And this amazing skirt! She based it off one of my wists. I might need to cut it down because it's big, but the belt fits perfectly! Grin The ruffle at the bottom is amazing! And she made all the seams really well so they aren't raw!


the belt/sash



Thanks Retro_Rose, it's been so much fun swapping with you!

I just got my package today too! Glad you love everything!

I wasn't sure what size to make you, but you can open up the casing and pull the elastic tighter and sew it back up. I had an experience once where I made a skirt too small, and I always err on the wider size. It will give you a fuller look that way too. Smiley

I'll post pictures tomorrow when I get home from work!

I got some neat stuff from MareMare! I really love this apron, the multi coloured side is my favourite. The other side sports a really pretty bird fabric too. There were some extras - a couple of post cards from New Orleans, a glass pendant, and this awesome magnet wand for grabbing dropped pins. So useful!!!

My absolute favourite thing has to be this pin cushion chair. I don't know if t was made by her or not, but if so, it's amazing. Truly cool! And what a great fabric. Did I mention the cushion actually comes off and there's storage underneath?? I'm holding a box of pins in there, and just enough on top to use frequently.

Thanks for a great swap maremare!!

Oh, I also wanted to add some detail shots of the skirt I made for MareMare. I had someone model it for me so that I could see how it drapes.

Well great call on that.

The apron is being moved to my boyfriends house tonight, as I don't have one there. Sometimes we make cookies! Smiley
