1  Re: Craft my favorite quote swap gallery in The Swap Gallery by lilyella on: July 03, 2011 12:51:08 PM
My package arrived with two wonderful pieces.....

This amazing hoop which pictures my most favourite quote

'To growing children give two things.... one is roots the other wings'

The stitching is amazing and it depicts the saying beautifully! I am very proud indeed to be hanging this in my home xxxxx

The second was a fab sign with the 'Keep Calm and Carry On' saying one side and 'Now Panic and Freak Out' on the other!! Such a fantastic idea and was finished in a distressed shabby chic frame!! The whole thing suited me perfectly!!!Unfortunately the posties werent very delicate and the glass was broken into pieces so I am unable to post pics, but I'm hoping Butweed may have taken a pic so you can all see it Smiley

Thanks again for a gorgeous package Smiley

Sorry i have taken a little while to upload pics.... have done my best and hope they upload properly as this is my first time... please add pics if you have them, Holistic Knitter, i want to do your fabby package justice Cheesy

A beautiful gardening/gathering apron... it fits my ever growing bump a treat and will be coming in very handy indeed as an extra pair of 'hands' aroud the home and garden Smiley

Gorgeous knitted fingerless mitts... i have wanted a pair of these for absolutely ages... love love LOVE them... the colour is perfect - i shall be treasuring these for many years to come  Grin

A really cool fabric covered journal decorated with different veggies and perfect for keeping track of our vegetable plot...

The cutest tote bag... complete with a hen and cockeral pocket to the front - i have 4 hens in our back garden so anything 'chickeny' fits a treat in this house  Grin
The tote, journal and apron all co-ordinate beautifully - i love that!!

These are a few of the lovely extras... a delicious vanilla and tangerine yankee votive, marigold and sunflower seeds (my girls adore planting sunflowers so these were a massive hit with them especially Smiley ) a book that my other half is dying to get his hands on... how to combat the dreaded slugs  Cheesy and i also recieved some cat chews for my lovely pussy cats and hairbands for my gorgeous girlies which have each made their way to their respective owners before having their pictures taken..... all lovely thoughtful extras!

Thank you so much Holistic Knitter for making my first ever swap so enjoyable and for sending me a fantastic package.... we crafted some very similar bits so clearly both have very good taste  Grin
