I received my items from petunya today. They are perfect! Love them!!!!!

First, there is this awesome tea cozy! I've been wanting one of these forever. petunya used a really cute black and white sewing themed fabric that matches my house perfect. The inside is a cute red and white fabric. And some bling at the top for embellishment!

Next, there are 3 potholders - all the same patterns and fabrics but the colors are rotated around. The back is lined with a black plaid - which will be great for hiding all the red sauces I cook with!
They are lined with insulbright which works great! I just tried it out on my pressure cooker which is currently processing home-canned organic potatoes.

Thanks so much! The fabrics are perfect! I love them all!

Glad you liked it! Some of those items are supplies I received in a couple of previous FAB swaps, so I'm hoping you can find a use. Some are items I cleaned from my stash.

I just received my box from sloanlaw. Here is all of it's crafty goodness:

It contained lots of fabric, some embellishments for scrapbooking, some DMC thread, some bias tape, and the cutest little felt bluebird embellishment.

Thanks so much sloanlaw.

I also used the same pattern to make a Union Jack dress for another production.

if only there were more hours in the day and I never got tired....I need Edward to bite me.....

LOL!!!! That totally cracked me up! I think I'd rather have Carlisle bite me tho - more years of experience and practice!

Thanks Retromiad for the pattern link! I'm leaving in a week on a mission trip that is a 9 hour drive from my house, so I'll have plenty of time to work on a set!

Love the chef's hat - too cute!

Love all the potholders.
The purple kitty is great! Where did you find the pattern? I have a friend who loves kitties and I'd love to copy your idea. Smiley
I also love the quilted mitts and the teal and brown items. After looking at these items, hopefully mine will live up to the standard set. I had some trouble with my machine and mine don't look near as pretty as these...feeling swap anxiety...
However, we need to do this swap again. I have tons of insulbrite left! lol!

Sorry I've been silent of here lately. I got sick earlier this week and was dead to the world. I feel great now though! If it stops raining here tomorrow I may go to our town's 4th of July parade just to get out of the house. It's a huge thing here - they even bring in port-a-potties for the event! Luckily the route goes down the street right outside my apartment so I only have to walk about 200 meters. Smiley Anywho, I'm loving the boxes - it's so fun to see what we all get. It reminds me of the old addage: One man's trash is another man's treasure. Except for us it's: One craftster's extras/overyardages/unused is another Craftster's creativity pile!

I received from TerraBella01 a couple of days ago, so here's my goodie pile! I absolutely adored the stuff!

The first things I saw were the large stash of paper goodness and a length of fabric. Most of the paper will go into cards and scrapbooks. I'm going to use the fabric to make more quiet bags for our children at church (bags with crayons and color books for worship service). They will love the bright colors and print - especially the boys who always complain about the "girlie" fabric on some of the bags!  Wink

Then there were the four cross stitch mini-kits. They were the cutest patterns. I passed them along to my best friend who is on her back after surgery. She's nearly got them all done! Smiley This photo also shows more paper. I love the metallic paper (on the right side). And the Mickey Mouse paper is PERFECT for my Disney scrapbooks I'm working on. Smiley I told TerraBella01 that I had to laugh because I passed on a very similar object in this photo to one of my partners in their box! (Won't tell what here to not spoil the surprise!)

Thanks! I love everything and will use it all!
29  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Teacher Swap? on: June 24, 2010 12:07:03 PM
I think this is a great idea!!! I'm a high school biology teacher and would love to participate! I was thinking fun stationary to use for notes to parents/other teachers, little storage items for the desk, notebooks, decorations to put on our plan books, school spirit items to hang in our classrooms, etc. Loads of ideas...!

Wow! Such great such in all of your boxes! I'm loving the fabrics and paper goods because those are right up my alley. I really need to get on the ball cleaning out (nearly done) and get my boxes/envelopes sent! Smiley
