lukenlarry try using Microsoft Office Picture manger in the future to edit your photos first. I open them in it as a choice program then I choose Edit Photo and choose re-size photo and do so for WEB PAGES. I am sure that most Photo editing programs have this setting some were you just may have to google search how to get to it inside the program you use. DONT waste time on the one for Email it over compresses it. you loose all the details. I can up load 6 photos in under 3 seconds flat if they are compressed. and that is with the husband and two teens online gaming at the same time. try it you'll like it.

I am super jealous of lukenlarry right now!!  Wow Quaggy~ you really sent some nice things!  Your embroidered tree = my newest 'favourite item posted by someone else'  Smiley

Loving all of the other bags & extras, too!  The hearts, the polkadots, the batiks...  sigh.  Such great taste  Smiley

Have a good day everyone!

BIG QUESTION.... are we allowed to line the bags?

Sure, ogd, line your bag if you wish!  I promise not to call the Craftster police!

Fantastic package from quaggy!  I love that you strip-pieced the batik fabrics for the morsbag, that looks great!  I can't believe the embroidery AND the painting--both are amazing and look very time-consuming, how nice of you to go all out for lukenlarry!

Beautiful package from raewolo!  I love the color combination of the fabric on the bag and the mug rug, and the coordinating turquoise fabric for the handles and mug rug!  So nice!  The pouch looks awesome, and the magnetic clothespins are a great idea to use on the fridge!  (I'm sure the notebook is great too!) Super package!

Thanks for the nice comments.

Credit where credit is do:::::    Great partnering made it easy.  I also cheated the fabric was not pieced but bought that way.   Simple but elegant which is what my partner requested  The tree was super quick and simple maybe 1 1/2 hours tops.  Did not plan to sew around the entire tree but my heat and bond was not coooperating so zigzagging was a must!  The tree painting took about 30 minutes not counting the drying time.  Like I said you gave me a partner that was so easy to craft for it made my task super easy!   Thanks again for such a wonderful swap and the job that you do in partnering!!!!!!

You girls are uploading the greatest pictures when I am asleep..... great surprises when I check in on Craftster after dinner!

First of all: StickerChic87 dark brown is even better! Hahaha it looked like black to me  Smiley

Quaggy: the last craftster to join this swap, but certainly not the least! The batik bag is fantastic, doesn't matter if the fabric was already like that. You saw it, bought it and made this great bag!
The embroidered tree is adorable, too bad that your heat and bond didn't cooperate  Wink but it looks great! And that tree painting is great too, you sent a wonderful package! And again: lukenlarry is a lucky girl!

raewolo: Love the colours of that bag! Looks so good with the matching but different coloured handles. And a quilted mug rug, how beautiful. I like the shape of the zippered bag, I think I already mentioned that I love zippered bags... More nice extras you added. What a great job, raewolo! Yes, Sharalee is a lucky girl too!
