Wow, so many lovely things...
I'm working at full speed today... My mom is out of town, so she won't question me about what I'm doing... I went out and bought some stuff that I could add to my package of tiny things Tongue I hope I can ship today... if not I'll do it early tomorrow...  Seeing all of your packages has me quite worried though.... I really want to send a nice package like all of you!!!

Linnybelle,
thank you sooo much for everything you sent my mother.  you really really made her day.  I am sooo sorry that I havent had time to sit down and properly thank you.  Now that I see the pictures I see why she was ranting and raving so much.  she did send me a pic but I really couldn't see the details too much in her pic.  I am so glad you got such good pictures.  Thank you soo much for all the beautiful things you send my mom.  you really outdid yourself on this swap.  anyone lucky enough to get you in the future should count their blessings.  you make beautiful things!!!!!!!!  I hope your mother enjoyed as much as my mom did.  Thanks again for a great and wonderful swap.  would love to do this one again in the future and thanks for organizing annaonthemoon.  Looks like everyones mom really made out.

Everything in the gallery is beautiful. I'm very impressed by the variety shown through the swap, and I'm very glad the post office finally delievered supermedic's mom's package. 

Supermedic, I had lots of fun making things for your mom and I actually do have pictures of my mom crying while reading the letter you sent, but she didn't want those pictures posted.  I don't know why... Smiley

inside of project holder: it has her initals on the outside, three main pockets, smaller pockets for thread and such, a covered magnet for needles, a button closure to secure a hoop and two other unfunctional but cute buttons.

Oh wow, the project holder is nifty! My mom just usually uses one of those large ziplock bags when she does cross stitch!

My mom just got her package from Bongirl5 (and at the perfect time too she had the cruddiest day at the prison and was just gonna mope at home till her bed time of 9 o'clock). I didn't get to see it but from what I heard over the phone she just loves everything, but especially loves the apron with the cow (I'm hoping Bongirl5 has photos cause my mom and new-fangled electronical things don't mix....yet). She says its exactly like the cows on her wallpaper at home and hopes that Bongirl5 doesn't mind if she wears it to work cause of all the nifty pockets. (PS my mom is a nurse at one of the prisons in Texas...not an inmate Cheesy).

Man after seeing this gallery I feel like I didn't do enough for BonGirl5's mom (even if 1 of the projects took me 2 1/2 weeks to put together). Ah well I still hope she likes what I sent

Check the front page of the thread to make sure I've marked you appropriately with received. If your partner has received, I've gone ahead and given you the positive feedback.
