Thanks for complementing the skirt Calabaza, I made the skirt from fabric from a bamboo skirt around the back and sides and attached netting to that from a dress then put fabric from a pleated cotton blend skirt down the center and used remnants of the bamboo skirt to make the band at the top. Thank goodness for my fabric/crafting stash!

I made a 'tutorial' in case you're curious:

Awesome! I just checked it out. The skirt is neater than I thought from the picture! What a great combination of fabrics.

I just recived from theatreorchid and I got the BEST package!

A very pretty hand painted picture that will go great on my vanity table.

Two beautiful purple doilies
 They will also got great in the antique room since the main color in there is purple.

And the best most awsome hoop ever. I literally gasped and went "ohhh" like a toy story alien when I unwrapped it. 
She based it on an image i have on pinterest http://pinterest.com/pin/102456960242483582/

The details she put into this hoop is amazing, I tired to take a picutre to show the stitching on the glove
 The headdress is actual net fabric.

Here it is already on my hoopla wall It is possibly my favorite hoop Ive ever recived.

I received my package from Mwahaha, and it was awesome! Sadly, I cannot find my camera (I'm sure it's around here somewhere...) so this pic will have to do:



I'll post better pics as soon as I find my camera. Then you'll be able to tell how truly amazing everything is!

Oh my gosh that hoop is fabulous! Awesome fabulous!

Alatarial, your swap goodies from Mwahaha look amazing as well! Please, please can you tell me more about them? Is that a purse I see and a jewelry set? Can you describe them to tide me over until the cameral turns up? I'm having vintage cravings. Smiley

Scarlet_nights, thank you so much for that! Cheesy  Best, funniest compliment ever, and I really needed the giggle after a lousy day today. Smiley  I'm so so glad you like everything and I love the picture of your hoopla wall!

Thanks everyone for saying nice things. Smiley  That hoop was intense (it'll be...a while before I try lattice stitch again, lol) but a lot of fun to do.  I just fell in love with that picture on Pinterest so I had to do something with it!

Alatarial, I'm joining the chorus of people itching to see the pretties Mwahaha sent, that set looks sooooo pretty!

Hoping to post Weds or Thurs, I received today and LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!

And I also sent! I have never had Canada post send that fast. Miracles happen!

I love the hoopla, what cool details on the fishnet gloves! All of the gallery is awesome, the wine and black fashion items, the accessories and the crafting supplies are all aces!

Getting swap anxiety really bad now....I really hope I was able to give as good as I received!
