I've been kind of a crappy communicator this round (twins pregnancy is kicking my butt big time), but I finally managed to get the package for my partner, patty_o_furniture, sent out.

Here is a teaser:

Also, we recieved her wonderful package last week. I'll try to get some photos of the stuff she sent us posted tomorrow.

Sorry, patty_o for the delay!

I made this apron as a birthday gift for a friend who loves tomatos (her kitchen is tomato-themed). I used a tutorial from One More Moore - I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

Madmatigan79, do you want me to post the pics I took of what I sent you, until you can get some action shots up (I still want to see her actually wearing the dress, it doesn't look the same on a hanger...)?

Zelda - sorry it has taken me so long to show off your fantastic work (and that it is taking even longer to send your son's package - I am off work and in town for the next four days...I PROMISE I will get everything off to you this week - I've been a terrible partner this round and I really apologize!)

The goods (clockwise from bottom: fleece food (cookies, pancakes, bacon, eggs, tomato slices), appliqud t-shirt, crochet cupcake, headbands, crayon roll, rockabilly-style sundress with red crinoline (missing: crayons + Dora the Explorer Learn to Sew Kit):

Crayon Roll (this has been putting on some serious miles as it is the perfect size to carry in my purse and bring out whenever we need a distraction!):

Dora the Explorer "Begin to Sew" Kit (an instant hit!):

The dress (perfect for twirling!):

At my Aunt's retirement party over the weekend - the outfit was a hit and received many compliments!

Yay! I'm so happy that the package finally arrived and that the kids like everything. I had a great time crafting for them. Smiley Can't wait to see some action shots!

Here is a picture of the stuffy I made for Jake. His name is Gurff:

I have pictures of everything else, but I they came out kind of dark, so I will have to play with them in photoshop.

Last week was a great one for crafty mail goodness! I received my wishes from Samsara & MissMermaidStrikesBack!

Samsara sent me a lovely turquoise panta, a bottle cap necklace (which far surpassed any expectations I had! It is wonderful!!) AND matching earrings! Thank you so much, Samsara!!

The goodies:

The necklace & earrings:

The panta:

I also received the sweetest little pair of fingerless mittens from MissMermaidStrikesBack. I love the colours & the fit is PERFECT (I have mini-hands, so that rarely happens). Thank you so much, MissMermaid!

The mitties:

A perfect fit (& just the thing for bike riding on a brisk, autumn evening):

Everything is so wonderful! Thank you, ladies!

(everyone else: sorry about the monster post!!)

I've been so behind in posting pics of my awesome swap goodies...my bad...so I am getting caught up!

The first is the most awesome tote I rec'd in a personal trade with Madmatigan79!  I'm telling you this bag is awesome...and she included a little pouch too!  The pic just doesn't do them justice!
Thanks to all....I am one happy swapper!

Thanks, ooak_diva, for posting a pic of the tote! I am also behind on picture posting.  Embarrassed

Here is the beautiful fused glass pendant that I got in return for the tote bag:

It is so pretty & unique - my friends have been raving about it! Thank you so much!

Also, here are a few pics I took of the tote bag:

Sadly, the packages that babyonboard & I sent to each other never made it.  Cry babyonboard, if you still have pictures of the things you sent this way, please go ahead and post them!

Here are the pictures of the things I made for her little guy (who is probably not so little anymore!)...

The loot (clockwise from top): a small quilt/play mat with bright colours and different textures, a board book ("Alligator Pie" by Dennis Lee - a favorite of my daughter), a treat for mom Wink , "kick-proof" booties (I used a free online pattern), washcloth bibs and a bottle cozy. To see a larger picture of everything, go here

Here are links to close-ups:

I'm so sorry that the goodies never made it to you, babyonboard. Please pm me when you have a chance and I will see about finding a swap angel for you.
