I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness

I would love to get my hands on charlie harper fabric.

My partner is the marvelous MAREMARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I so wish I could post photos but I can't so you will have to settle for a description of my WONDERFUL package till MareMare can post photos.

I had asked for a quilt on my questionnaire for this swap, never thinking I would get one because I know that a lot of work goes into making one, but....

MAREMARE MADE ME A QUILT!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is made up of squares and orange colors and turquoise and browns and just all of my other favorite colors!  (I told her in a PM that I love it so much it is replacing my beloved Garfield fleece throw on the back of my livingroom couch! Grin)

And then...not only did she send the quilt, but...

I received a really nifty little sewn basket made with orange deer fabric, grey fabric, plain orange fabric, creme and green dotted fabric, and cool owl fabric!  This is going in my craft room.  I also received a set of four owl themed coasters, in brown and pink fabric, and the way they are made is really interesting...they are sewn, but the top looks woven.  (I hope it shows in the photos, when she posts.)

THANK YOU SO MUCH MAREMARE!!!!!!!!!!

Yay, I'm so glad you like it, LadybugsAndBumblebees! Cheesy

This is a disappearing 9 patch pattern, it's the first time I made this pattern and it was really fun to make!

Then I opened it up!

She had a fun way for me to figure out who sent the box..

Opened some more!

It's a gorgeous, soft cardigan, SO SO beautiful!! Was totally on my list of major WANTS!


Under that was even more goodies!

A long needle case! I needed one of these!

Candies and scrubbies for my littles!

Gorgeous towels and a white chocolate/blueberry candy bar

MareMare, no prob.  I just thought it was funny that I explained it as just "squares" when it had a name.

It shows how much I have to learn about quilting...I absolutely love them...have a smaller one on the back of my chair in my livingroom, and another Craftster is doing a personal swap with me for a door quilt (long story).
