i feel so intimidated now that i saw how awesome everyone else's projects are! i think i may have been the only person who didn't make an apron!  Embarrassed but i did have a good time on this swap. here's what i made ruthie:

handknit basketweave stitch discloths.


a pillowcase which i sewed and embroidered (she collects palm trees)


some print gocco-ed tags to go with home cooked gifts (they read "handmade with love from the kitchen of ruthie)


my first attempt at resin magnets.

i got my package from ruthie saturday and i love everything! i'll post pictures of it soon.  Smiley

The cupcakes and images on the canister are paper that is mod podged on I think.

I love the bottle cap magnets.  I can see the chocolate chips and ant on a picnic cloth but what is the first one (hard to see)?

And the best surprise of all... WONDER WOMAN COASTERS!!!

You have no idea how relieved I am that the coasters didn't break!! That was my biggest fear, especially since I was so proud of them. I'm a little sad that I'll never see them again Wink

I actually found some really awesome tiki fabric, complete with hula girls and those...big carved faces (what are those called??) but the print was SO huge it would have been unrecognizable on anything smaller than, say, curtains.

Everything posted so far looks really great! I can't wait to get my package Smiley

Hee, tikis. don't shoot the messenger
I think you'll have to make a tiki corner for your house.  Every home should have one. Excellent for imbibing cocktails and feeling exotic

Okay, I actually recieved a little while ago, but, we had some problems.  But here is everything:

  These are so cool!  They're framed vintage prints.  I can't wait to put them up in my brand new craft room!  WOW!  She even made me extras! 
Here's a close up.  Smiley
  These coasters are just adorable.  They're so ME.
These are magnets.  Oh man, they're awesome.  Notice how cute and teeny they are!  You did such a great job!
Sorry for the huge post, but I wanted to give everything the credit it deserves.

Oh I'm really glad you like it all. I couldn't remember whether or not I put a note in saying the octopi are magnets, and I was worried you might not know since they are such tiny little magnets. But you do know, so I had nothing to worry about.
