Franknhurter I love the fabric you used for the basket.... It reminds me of Sprinkles Cupcakes.... yummy! And the fascinator is just great! I love the royal blue and the broken vintage jewelry, I actually have a vintage watch with a band similar to what you have on the feather!

Susanab - you always make such a wonderful package! I love your baskets and I really liked that the bands on the one were ribbon right?! That is such an Grin Grin AMAZING Grin  Grin idea!
I might just have to use it on a basket I'm making now!

Great packages from everyone so far!!! Can't wait to see the rest!

Woo-Hoo!!! I just opened an amazing package from FeliciaSlayDCRG!!! Thank you, thank you! First here is a group shot of everything:


The basket is such a pretty print and you can't tell because of the pattern inside it, which is awesome! I am so going to try one out in a fun print to use when we go to the beach! But the inside is this awesome jewel tone purple


And then a WHOLE bad of buttons she found at a thrift store! I would have spent well over 10 bucks for those at my local quilt shops treasure chest of buttons.... And these cool cameo beads/pendants..... I am already imagining something awesome with the both!


And she even made my little girl an apron!!! She loves standing around while I make dinner! She's napping right now, but as soon as she wakes up I am going to get an action shot of her in it!!!

Thank you so much.... I need to go look through those buttons now!!!!!

wowzeee!
when a craftster veteran like i am gets spoiled to the max by a first time swapper, it leaves me speechless, truly.
and i am humbled by your skills, imebears!


here's the "basket" that she made for me. i am putting basket in quotes because this is going to tote with me in the real world for sure!


i wish you could really see how well constructed it is, it's crazy nice and it is BIG!
there's room for plenty  more books, snacks, fqs, books, snacks, fqs...that sort of rotation Cheesy


so there were these two felted balls inside. i didn't know what to do about that so, i smelled them.
they smelled like felted wool. so i'm thinking, well, that's an interesting extra and i need to figure out what i should make of and with them.
then i saw this amazing amazing note that she crafted and wrote for me:



imebears saw the photo of my cat Nash looking out the window on my blog and wrote, "I knew I had to make you a felted cat pin. ..the extra wool balls are for you cats. ours love to play with wool."
and then the poem "fog" by carl sandburg.
well he sure is enjoying the box that everything came in!

that pin looks just like him!!

thank you so so so much!

Oh, two more awesome packages today!  FeliciaslayDCRG, I LOVE the fabric you used for the basket, and the basket itself came out great.  That mini apron is so precious, CraftyMamaBee's daughter is going to love it!  And, I am so jealous of that bag of buttons...I have tons of buttons, but I want MORE!

Imebears, WOW!  That is one awesome tote-able basket! The large size makes it so useful, and I can see that it is well-made.  The cat pin really is so touching, it DOES look like Susan's cat, I love it when someone makes something so personal and one-of-a-kind.  The presentation of it is awesome too.  Well-done on your first swap!!

Susanab: your cat looks so HAPPY!

These are amazing baskets. It's cheating a little bit maybe, but I'm so happy to get to see how others did theirs before I make mine lol. I'm buying the fabric tonight.

I am so glad I sent the box for Nash. He just as bad as our cats, any box or bag is fair game. I didn't post the picture but one of my cats was checking out the baskets you made while I was trying to take pictures.  Cheesy Well enjoy and happy swapping with you.
