I received my absolutely awesome package from hggdm today!!! We're both big Producers fans so that's mainly what we both swapped (hint hint).

First is an amazing cross stitch for my craft area. What means tidy oop?


And a beautiful Ula-inspired necklace


I'm so glad I didn't follow through on this idea, but I had considered sending a pair of Leo's ledgers off myself.




The only thing that wasn't from The Producers. Instead it's part of one of my favorite lines from Young Frankenstein on a tshirt and definitely the best part of the....line Wink


And the best for last. She made a gorgeous wall art piece with pictures and lines from the movie. Here are just a few pictures of it

So happy to hear you loved the stuff Ospreywife!
The bracelet was just a little glue and then topped with clear nail polish to seal the images. The sizing was a little tricky.

Checked the tracking on the package and it said it was out for delivery today but I think maybe it was too cold to make it out of the truck. Right now the temp is a balmy -11 degrees, with wind chill -24.  It will get here though! Monday can't come soon enough, I can't wait.

So excited when I heard the dogs barking-indicating the mailman has come a knockin' at my door. Cliche I know but the dogs are crazed.

Thank you Ospreywife for all the great stuff! I love the "Where's my froggy" bracelet. And the plaque is awsome! It's already hanging on my craft room wall. Hedley Lamarr is so my favorite dirtbag.








Great transfer technique on the fabric. I am sure I can find something superfun to do with the fabric and yarn.

Thanks so much!

Behold the beautiful creations of our illustrious organizer!!


I love this gorgeous shirt! The color is perfect, and I think it looks like a designer shirt!! I plan to wear it to class today. The messenger bag is amazing too, with this gorgeous blue lining. Perfect for going to class. [The model here is my lovely and busty half-lady, Pat.]


A cross stitch of one of my FAVORITE Producers quotes, done by Sara's husband!! Yeah!! Can't wait to go thrifting to find the perfect frame for this.


And this incredible bracelet..the letters spell out "The Producers." I LOVE the colors and especially the sparkly blue stones, and it fits perfectly.

I'm such a lucky partner!! Thanks so much for these goodies, Sara, and thanks for hosting an amazing swap!! Cheesy

thanks guys! here are a few more pics....

the packaging...


the tshirt... i was singing this song for days.... drove everybody up the walls....  Cheesy

from robin hood, men in tights

the stuffy... my first ever! he's a lil rough around the edges, but i think he makes up in personality what he lacks in craftsmanship  Wink

from spaceballs

starcakes' fave mb quote... i was gonna Xstitch it, but my dog ate my last embroidery hoop! so i had to come up with a new plan...  Smiley

from young frankenstein

thanks for the compliments! this was my first swap, and i had a lot of fun making all this stuff! i'll post new topics with more pics of this stuff over the next couple days.... Grin

Got half of my package today and it is bitter sweet...

The amazing glasses starcakes57 made me got broken!!! Cry
the weather in Boston has been appalling and not only has it made the post run slow but the roads are so bad the prob. got shaken to death! but what I can see of them looks beautiful I'm so sorry all that hard work went to waste....


(I almost cried when I saw the little crown, could you post the before pic's? I want to see)
but the good news is my other item in the box:

is amazingly awesome and funny! the note is the best part!


I can't wait to wear it in public! I'll feel so saucy!
