When the Warehouse 13 swap was started, I  was still partway through my first swap, so I couldn't join, and I was so bummed out... Cry

But pjr107, who was participating in the swap, kindly suggested that she and I do a private swap!  I was so delighted!

So since I know she's in the middle of some other things right now, and I know she has received, here are pics of the goodies I sent (hope she doesn't mind).   Cheesy

My photos aren't the best, sorry.
This is fan art (not mine, I can't draw) made into a necklace:

Next is a bracelet - my first attempt at chain maille, and polymer clay (pretty new to that, too):

The tshirt was my favorite, and I'll be making myself one just like it - soon!

I also sent an extra based on another of her favorite shows, Haven:

I did a personal swap with Madhatteh. We were both doing the stuffed envelope swap and wanted to do more so we did a personal stuffed envelope swap. She sent 3 YES 3 little purses. One for me and one for each of my daughters. She picked perfect fabric and attached buttons that were totally awesome. My 12 year old took her button off the purse this morning and put it on her jacket before she went to school. Great job Madhatteh and thank you!

I received these altered puzzle pieces from IsikkahJai today.  Sorry they're not the greatest of photos.
I love that she gave them a story or personality and really thought about them.  The watermelon is my favorite, but "Can't concetrate!" is really cute and clever, too.

I'm long-delayed in posting, but nilmerg and I did a tiny personal swap a while back; I sent her some shrink plastic and a few inchies, and she sent me fabric and embroidery to use for my Teesha Moore fabric square project (which is going to be vaguely nature-themed, and features various fabric-based things I've received in swaps, though that's about all I know about it yet  Smiley).

(there were several other fabrics too, including a tea towel with appliqued mushrooms.  Grin Seeing some of the impressive work she's done, I emphasized that I just wanted something quick/easy/simple, since what I was sending wasn't worth investing a lot of time and effort for--but even with these parameters, the quality of her work is wonderful and demonstrates that "small" doesn't mean sloppy or lacking. I'm so glad to have these! Grin The dandelion one may end up being displayed on its own, to better show it off...

And its reverse side:

Lined zipper pouch with keychain:

A travel toothbrush/toiletry roll up:

And a little quilted basket:

It made me really happy that she liked everything! Smiley

I received 2 awesome TM-style patches from sloth003:

This one is perfect for me. Not only am I a preschool teacher/director, but I am a word nerd. Love the fabric!

And this one:

This also fits my style - 70s-ish flowers with beads in the center.
