Sorry to have not been around much, life ya know? I received these lovely bracelets from anna.wahnsinn and as usual I am very late posting pictures. The teapots are too adorable and just love all the shades of blue! Thank you Anne!

Yay for lovely angels! I got my package and I love it! Anna.wahnsinn angeled for me and sent me a gorgeous necklace! I may never take this off. she also included some things her daughter made to hang over my grandbaby's crib (a beaded hoop and a dolphin to jump through) and a perler bead stitch and Scrump! I never saw such tiny perler beads. They must make a person go blind.

Thank you Rox and Anne!

I got my second flag! I had high expectations for a flag made by Quaggy and she sure did not disappoint! She used Derwent Inktense Ink pencils on muslin then mounted on a wonderful underwater-ishj batik pattern. I can't wait to hang it by the Ship she made me years and years ago Cheesy Real starfish and the beaded fringe make this flag even more special. Thank you Quaggy!

I received from Abbeeroad! I don't know how she knew I loved blue so much. I thought I was doing a good job of keeping that a closely guarded secret, but she catered to my love in a big way! So many little details and accents, all so well done. It is truly beautiful and so much appreciated. The feather with the blue sheen is an especially nice touch and I love how it is attached. Also loving on the combination of perfectly finished edges and raw edges. Thank you Abbie!

As I was just saying in the round 136 gallery, I think I need to take a bit of a break. I am just not  able to find time to craft right now. maybe with summer approaching? (ha, dare to dream... camps, kids with jobs and no transportation, middle child getting driving permit, daughter going back to work and no daycare lined up for my grandbaby besides her siblings and parents who work from home?) okay, rein it in... lets get to the pictures

KittyKill claimed me for something tea related. Check out the loveliness she stitched for me!

So much attention to detail. The stitching is just perfect. It is framed with blue washi tape and accented by a cute little blue butterfly. She also included two packages of tea Smiley

Just so you can appreciate the details of the stitching, here is a close up shot.

Thank you KittyKill!

Yes, must post pictures! I am thinking I need to take a break from swapping. It is really sad when a person can't even find the time to post a picture much less make a claim. 3 weeks crafting time for prayer flag is turning out to be too short a period for me. I really need to get my life organized better.

Please know the lateness of pictures is no reflection on how much I love the packages. it is just life... working full time plus, still trying to do as much with the kids as I did when I was home, and the new grandbaby eats up all my time. But enough about me, lets talk about these lovely packages!

From this round - a claim for stamped jewelry from Allons-y. Great choices of words for me and very beautifully done! Thank you!

I received! curiousfae and I discussed sending two pillow covers because I wanted to make her a simple little easy pillow from her pinterest as well as a slightly larger effort pillow not exactly based on her pinterest but on her personality. The two she sent me are amazing and so very me!

Here is everything she sent:

a close up of the first pillow - patchwork, rag style so soft and comforting as well as lovely

The second pillow - appliqued stars, also rag style, beautifully coordinating with the first pillow

I love them - Thank you curiousfae!

I can not believe the baby is 2 weeks old already?!?! Hopefully life will settle down soon? maybe? Thank you for all the sweet comments on my little sweetie!

Speaking of my little sweetie, I am very behind in posting pictures of some stuff received for her. First up is a wonderful package I received from SnowyAngel in a prior round

I am not sure if the image comes through well enough to see, but the booties have the cutest little mouse buttons (beatrix potter style)

so much in one package! Sticker photo props for charting the baby's first year, aforementioned booties and 2 matching headbands, bottleholder that hangs from a stroller, and a hot air balloon taggie toy. (which went to the hospital because my Franki was sure the baby would want something to play with immediately? Cheesy ) Thank you so much for this very thoughtful and generous package!

Now package 2, also from SnowyAngel - Chair socks! So very many chair socks! She sent me 6 sets of them!!! The colors and the fit are perfect!

Also in this package was a sweet pair of bracelets! OMG love the color! so very me, Thank you SnowyAngel

so behind... so very behind...

Here is the amazing and beautiful diaper bag my Franki received from gala apples. Nice and large and so many pockets!!!

Lovely intense purple lining

And here is the wonderful package from Grab a Coffee - I made a special request for some felt work that I could add to either a little mermaid mobile or an elephant mobile. Wow did she deliver! I really didn't expect her to craft for both ideas!

First up the very sweet elephants/ Tough to see in the picture, but the white hearts are beaded

And OMG loving the Ariel and Flounder!

Thank you Grab a Coffee & Gala_Apples
