So my partners have both received all my badges to them, and I have received all theirs..... is it time for R3 yet? Wink

LOL not every is so speedy...I just sent mine.. Right down to the last second LOL!! Toddler, wedding, 3 birthdays and a visit with my 81 year old dad to the ER where we learned about saliva gland stones (like kidney stones...probably the only visit where they would prescribe you "lemon drops" LOL!) really slowed me up. But I am so excited for hgddm to get them!!

So sweet and thoughtful. I'm so sorry you had to make it, but it is a beautiful way to celebrate her. Bless your heart.

I have to get my gushing out first. So much has happened!

Nostephot's Badger badge cracked me up as much as it impressed me with her stitching.

Nooo's sparkly fish is too cute, the sequins are really well done, considering how tiny...and I agree the itsy landscape is amazing. Plus her bird is fabulous, I love the beadwork and adding the feathers was genius. The little hootie owl is so sweet.

Leslieshappyheart's owl is so expressive and detailed - just wow. And your little chicken is so intricate and adorable.

Bobomom's little kawaii blob is so cute (even if I don't know what it is lol) and her librarian Snoopy and teensy Woodstock is wonderful.

Thimble71's landscapes are amazing as is the Rosalind Russell ( I agree that her's is the Mame to see). Love all the beads.

Amymarie78's Stitch was perfect and the apple critter was almost mezmerizing in its adorable stare Smiley . I also love her bacon and I am really envious of the little mushroomy hedgehog one!!

Kimbles ginger kitty and stag badges are really well done. The stag could just walk off that! I LOVE her "Grow" badge, very creative. I love the earth cutaway too..deliciously nerdy.

Jillybean's Horde badge was obviously sent to the wrong person...I'm positive it should be mine and the little controller was great! Nice details. Apparently the two packets got mixed up AND sent out wrong, because I am sure Neill Patrick Harris actually requested that Dr. Horrible badge for me as I am his biggest fan (72% percent chance of that). The Swap organizer is great..love the color combo.

I love Interrobam's drawing, very fun...love your style! The hummingbird is insanely detailed and darling. And the teeny leaf within a leaf fox badge is so adorable. Kudos for that stitching work!

Now on to my fun!!  I got my badges yesterday from hgddm! I don't think she realized what one would mean to me....completely accidental. She found some vintage tattoo style badges on my Pinterest and changed it around a bit and made an original one that brought me to tears. I lost my mom three years ago and we had a long standing running joke about getting tattoos (we were both to chicken to do it, my mom also joked about already having ink from radiation treatment) and the only tattoo she said I could get would be an old fashioned "Mom" tattoo. So after she passed I finally became a mother myself through adoption, under weird, almost comical situations, that several people have commented reminds them of something my mom would have orchestrated (she was a world class meddler).

So sometimes I talk to my mom when I am taking a moment away from my now almost 20 month old toddler and the other day I commented that I wished she could see her grandson, because he was quite a mess. Then yesterday I pop open this....

A perfect rendition of the tattoo I would be allowed to have. It was like a sign that I was doing good...we were very silly together, me and mom, and I'm trying to continue that with my little man. We laugh a lot around here now Cheesy!
And with it a darling badge with embossed paper flowers in my current favorite combination of coral and aqua! It has lots of gorgeous stitching that I don't think can really be done justice to with my photography skills.

Thank you Linsey...it is exactly what I needed.

Bugger...this is my first swap since the acquisition of my son. Trying to needlefelt with a toddler "helping" is taking more patience and dexterity than I have it seems, LOL! If it makes any difference, he thinks I'm doing a helluva job!!

Love the little fruits!! The beading on the pineapple really makes it pop. The sneaky little sweet face on the pear and the fact that the watermelon looks completely edible is so awesome!!!

I AM a Dr. Who fan...and that dalek badge is FREAKING PerFeCt!!!!!!!

The little mummy is adorable, but that dang dalek...too great!!

I have severe swap anxiety, but I think I have a cute spin on it..... Can't wait to see more!!
