First washing, and it still looks the same. I think I might try to find something to go over the robot with, I REALLY LOVE your design!
  Thanks too, on the compliments about the babies my hubby and I made! We're not sure where the red hair came from... hubby is kinda light brown and I am dark brown... but Ohhhh what a great color!!! Wink Wish I could bottle it!

   Yea, I never wore clothes. It's been like 30 at night and anywhere from mid 30's to 50's in the day for weather here, and everyone says 'put some clothes on that kid' but you know, I never and still don't wear clothes, and I'm not gonna make my kids wear them!!! Smiley

   I loved this swap! Hope we can do it again!

She crocheted an amazing pink, black and white striped hoodie for Ali and some rattle/crackle toys for the baby on the way. My camera isn't working, so java if you have pics, please post them.

This reminds me of Sex in the City -"I bet she grew up in a 'naked house'..."

Also, we received our package from megaknits today! I took pictures of everything - an embelished t-shirt, a knit skirt, a little appliqued bag, stickers and some pretty beaded bracelets - but our computer is being funny and won't download anything off of our camera (hopefully we can get it working this weekend!!). Elora loved opening her surprise "present" this morning!

Everything is so cute and I LOVE the choice of colours - the green is one of our favorites (as you will be able to see when I get the pictures up - the beaded heart embellishment on the t-shirt matches the accent wall and cushions in my living room!).

This was such a great swap! Anyone up for Round Three (not right away, of course...but perhaps in the spring?)?  Wink

Hahahaa! Yup! That's us- the naked house! I hardly every put a onsie layer on (my 18mo) Colin, and my neighbor has two girls 3 and 4 1/2 YO's and they are both in undershirts, and turtle necks and sweaters UNDER their coats whenever I see them! Mind you I love my neighbor! I think she's always cold when she comes over to our house too! I always bump the heat up a couple of degrees when we have guests! Oh well! I guess I am just conditioning the kids to be snowboarders!!! Cheesy
Loved this swap! Yes, let's do round 3! Spring sounds good!

My computer seems to be working again so I am FINALLY able to post some pictures of the great stuff we got from megaknits!

Here is Elora, opening the loot (don't mind the pjs/hoodie combo...I'm like javastain's neighbour - ALWAYS cold, so the kid & I are always bundled up)...I think those stickers were gone within the hour:



The little bag shown with her favorite 'dancing shoes' & the bracelets (being used as necklaces for Dora the Explorer and Diego):



The skirt & shirt outfit:
(apparently practicing her runway model pout)

"CHEESE!"



Thank you again, everyone, for making this such a great swap!

Cutie Pie! That is so funny, Ellie has her favorite dancing shoes too! And I can't get them off of her! (and she's recently decided she'snot wearing panties! UGH! Talk about the naked house!!!)

I used the ink-jet transfers on some felt and then sewed it onto the hoodie.

Am considering making one for myself next...  Wink but do you think I can find a PLAIN hoodie that fits? Easier said than done.
