1  Re: Embroided Tote/Bag! GALLERY ::: Send out 07/11 in The Swap Gallery by messeis on: June 30, 2009 06:43:41 AM
I received my lovely package on Friday, sorry I am late posting, from Sillybowtie aka Nikki. First let me say I have been having some issues lately and Nikki's package could not of come at a better time. As soon as I checked my mail I quickly feed the kids then quietly went to my room and opened my package. The first thing I saw was the purple flower and it was so well done  that I actually thought for a moment that she had machine embroidered it, then as I looked over the rest of the embroidery I realized that Nikki just embroiders that well. The stitches are all perfect. The bag itself is light green with a bright purple/pink flowers and is really bright and beautiful and there are two large pockets inside. She also included a second bag to fit inside that matches and on it there is a knitted flower that I love because it is pretty and I can't knit so I am happy that she included it. Anyway, here are the pictures. Sorry I though I was getting a new camera for Mother's day but instead got a serger so I can't really complain too much.

Thanks Nikki!

2  Re: Embroidery for my Spring: Apron! GALLERY ::: Send out 04/18 in The Swap Gallery by messeis on: May 07, 2009 11:28:29 AM
Yay, I received my loot (yes, loot because it is a treasure) from Norah Monday. She did a wonderful job and sent so much more than I was expecting.
First extra an apron for my son. He loved it and wanted to wear it all night.

Second extra an apron for my daughter, who especially loved the "ducks" I know they are chicks but she insisted and made lots of quacking noises.

Third extra a panel of a cowboy, again my son loved this.

Fourth extra (yes fourth!) a panel of a country girl, daughter was still making quacking noises.

And lastly my gorgeous apron with lots of detail.

I love all of it and will keep the kids aprons forever to pass down, they are so precious. As for the panels I am thinking either little throw pillows or just framing them for the kids rooms. I can't believe how much Norah sent and everything is beautiful and wonderfully stitched. This has been a great first swap for me and so much more fun than I would have ever dreamed. Thank you to our wonderful organizers.
Sorry for the picture quality, I am in desperate need of a new camera. Norah, if you have better pictures of the amazing detail please post too.
Thanks again.
