The pumps are fantastic!

Edited to add I've got my package from SnailMaleRaftCraft! I was super pleased with everything and will post pictures as soon as I get hold of a camera.
I'll save you the effort - Here you are!

The best of the lot. And for me, the least effort.  Cheesy

Nautical stars are a lot more fiddly to make than they look. The A covers the tacky middle. Cheesy

Simple quilted stripes cushion cover.

The slowest craftster to ever exist!

Great  =)  I love that cushion cover

And nushy, everyone should have a pair of those shoes (especially moo cow shoes) they are so comfortable to wear  =)  Also the necklace looks great on you  =)

Grin Grin Grin
i am so glad you liked tyhem i was really worried you'd hate the shoes but so so so glad you like them! :d

seeing as your a jewelerry maker maybe you could make a preety pin for the short scarf as i could find nothign to suit it properly!

and arghh i just saw a loose seam on the purse / pouch/ whatever holder! sorry!!

really glad you liked it and THANKS FOR ORGANISING SUCH A FANTASTIC SWAP!. your acutally wicked!!!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxx

How could I hate them, they are fab  =)  I've never made a pin before.  I got some brooch backs a short while ago and had no idea what to do with them (or even why I bought them in the first place!)  but now I know exactly what I can do with them  =)
Thanks so much  =)

Jojo9 has said I can post pictures of what I sent her for the swap as she is unable to access a camera.

She said she liked animals , particualry Monkeys , so I made her this monkey bag , I handpainted the Monkey on silk , embellished it with beads and then inserted into  a pocket on the front of this pink polka dot bag I sewed up on my machine , to go with it I made her a banana purse.

She also said she liked anything to do with the sea , so I made her some fridge magnets , the text reads ... She sells... sea shells .....on the sea shore.  hand drawn onto stained paper.

Then a little kitty keyring made with shrinky dinks , I also sent her a badge I made saying "I love Crafts" using tiny letters cut from a magazine ,I sent her a shell too , but i didnt get pictures of those.

behold the pictures................

Cheers for posting the pictures, looby!  i was really pleased with everything in the package.

I have been using the monkey bag at work and getting loads of compliments, and that's before I show anyone the banana purse!

I love the magnets too, i lived by the sea  when I was little so they remind me of home.  Ahhh.

Received this morning from Seampoints:

Two evil clown magnets, and a A5 heavyweight paper, hardback sketch pad.

The dogs danglies of a claret and blue bag, with two inside pockets. Happy? You bet!  Cool

the many wonderous gifts from jojo9:

restricted area horror box and mexicana frame with day of the dead decorations

inside the box was a halloween bracelet, black bead cuff, orange memory wire twist bracelet,star bracelet, indie kitty bag charm (all of it adorable); also a puss in boots box with a 'what's michael' (awesome kitty comic) bracelet and a pot of kitty treats which i nearly got attacked over when i opened the lid, teehee

and even more! :O a set of orange cards, skeleton stickers, wishing stars (such a cute idea) and a choco cat magnet!!

thanks so much jojo9, i felt way spoiled by all the awesome things you made! great swap everyone  Kiss

So pleased you liked it!  I was worried the frame might get a bit bashed up in the post, but it looks intact.

Hope the kitties like their treats!

yup the frame came through just fine! some of the seed beads fell off but i reglued them Smiley
the cats. oh my god. you opened up a can of worms there! my elderly kitty even stood on his hind legs to get one of those treats Smiley the kitten would probably try to eat the container if i didnt put them safely away! needless to say, i'll be getting more of those in future, lol. thanks again!
