Supermedic asked me to post pictures of what I sent her mom, so here goes...
A group shot:


The lapquilt: 

The ladies at my summer job were all jealous and I'm very proud of this one.  All the corners match and everything!   Smiley I couldn't get a really good picture of the whole thing.  It has nine pinwheel squares, alternating between a white anchoring fabric and a pansy fabric, with a thin purple border, a larger pansy border, and then bound with extra backing fabric.  It's tied with different white buttons from my stash.  It's just big enough to fit over a lap, I've forgotten the measurements.

Here's a view of the center square, which happens to be my favorite one:


And a closer view of the corner, which shows the border fabrics:


The page holder:

It's filled with beans and works pretty well.  I tested it before I sent it.  It has an embroidered "M" on it.

Flower card set:

These all have fabric details, made out of scrap fabric from another project.  Two say some variation on "thank you" and one is completely blank.

Random fabric card:

I like using fabric on cards.  The heart is white felt and the other has a white background. 

Random quote card:

The quote is "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to keep silence" and is from Victor Hugo.

A dog mat, for Andi:
 
This idea came to me after my cat sat on my black pants again.  She's almost all white, so I thought sending something supermedic's mom could use when she didn't want her dog to get hair all over her clothes would be good.  It's denim and some fun fabric I had lying around.  It is reversible, but the other side isn't as interesting, I was running out of the white fabric.

Despite the heartstopping post office screw up, this was a wonderful swap!  I had a lot of fun and supermedic definitely made my mom's day!

glad your mom liked.  let her enjoy her things.  I have pics here since we were supposed to be prepared to put up our own pics.


purple boot organizer since she loves her purple cowboy boots and 2 lavender drawstring sachets (one had the sage and lavender in bottom pic in it)

relaxing sleep set--pj bottoms, tank top, and matching eye mask (hope it all fits)

strawberry themed kitchen set--apron, grocery bag holder, coasters, strawberry stuffies or pincushions, pot holder and reversable drawstring goody bag

chair organizer (no she didn't get the stuff in it, that was just to show the pockets.)
Lavendar and sage (thanks to swap with auntiem)

Finally! Photos of what Haylie sent my mom:



I forgot to rotate it, but on the bottom is a reversable tote bag with a lighthouse on it, and above it is a three drawer jewelry box.  she also made a mom magnet, a necklace, and a painted shell (all sitting on the tote)

close-up of the jewelry box:

side:


top:


And Haylie made me a tote, too:

(i'm gong on a cruise with my favourite band, barenaked ladies next january)

And, both bags were reversible, so here's the inside:



Mom loved everything, and i immediately started using my bag as a purse Cheesy

My Mom received today and I should share that it was the perfect day for her to get her package.  She had a rough day at work and actually started tearing up when she opened the box.  She says thank you very much to supermedic and will, I'm sure, be writing her own note a little later.

I realized as I started writing that I don't have detail shots of things, just general ones, the light wasn't very good and I was too excited.  For now, I'll post general and then tomorrow, I'll add more.

A general overview, including a tantalizing glimpse of the fruit salad Dad made for dinner:


A view of my beautiful Mother, and her wonderful new strawberry apron:

She collects strawberry kitchen items, so this is quite perfect.  It was part of a kitchen set, so I'll post those tomorrow. 

A gorgeous chair organizer, which fits perfectly, although she claims that it is far too beautiful to sit on:


I promise to take more pictures tomorrow, if I can get the box away from my mom long enough.  She's considering taking it to work to show it off.  Not included in these pictures (because I am a silly, distractable girl), were a set of coasters, two little sachet bags, one with herbs, a lovely letter, and a pj set, which Mom is saving for her vacation in a week.    Thank you again, supermedic, and annaonthemoon, this was such a wonderful swap!

Haylie and her mom have received their package!

Here's what I sent for her mom:



I made her a matching set necklace, bracelet, and earrings out of swarovski crystal and swarovski pearls (her mom's favourite), a furry blue scarf, a decoupaged journal and matching set of coasters.  The box was painted by a friend of mine.

I also sent a small pot of jam from a local place and some coffee (I hope I remembered to put the coffee in!)

And this is what I sent for Haylie:



A purple scarf made from eyelash yarn, a blue and red crystalish bracelet,and a pink bracelet with a flower dangle.

Hopefully Haylie can provide some close-ups!

Hi guys...looks like the Honduras postal system has eaten Sphinxy's mom's second package. Here it is before I sent it:



There's a matching cow print apron and potholder, a glass rosary and a set of gardening themed magnets.
