I received from one of my partners...hardyswanton01 and I'm so happy I'm shaking!!!!! When I sent my info to craftydeb I may have mention that I love skulls and ladybugs....
Here is the list of what I received:
Reversible tote bag (skulls on one side, ladybugs on the other  Grin)
shawl/scarf (black and white skull fleece)
needle roll (skull fabric)
earrings and stitch markers (sent extra awesome beads)
potholders (sent me the extra yarn)


hardyswanton01 is a craftster goddess, I love everything!!!

The potholders are incredible, so is the reversible tote bag and a awesome needle roll, which I really needed.


I'm in love with my new skull shawl/scarf...It gets pretty cold here in my "Belle Province" of Qubec but this winter I'LL BE VERY WARM!


I'm sorry for the bad pictures I was sooooooo happy and excited!!

Thank you so so much hardyswanton01.   Grin Grin Grin

I'll take a few deep breaths and take better pictures tonight and post them on my blog and brag a bit!!!

I see everyone is receiving, and so am I!
 Grin Grin Grin Grin
I received Mclianne's parcel today, it was full of sunshire:

The bag is perfect,
there is loads of yellow fabrics, I especially love the sunflowers,
a coordinated writing set
some brush/pens I've always wanted to have!!! (I tried them right away as you can see)
Foam stamps I can't wait to use and
Loads of pictures of flowers from her garden, which is just brilliant!

And I even hear that this is only part of my swap as the parcel was too heavy to send in one envelope!
Thank you ever so much for your efforts and these brilliant fabrics McLianne! Grin Grin Grin Grin

*NOW* I amd also a bit concerned as I have sent both my parcels on Monday last week, and nothing has been received so far. Sad I hope everything is OK, I'm a bit on edge about this. Mini & Mclianne Let me know asap when you receive even if you haven't got a picture to post yet. Thanks.

Fabric for purse and extra remnants as well


Other fabric, textured papers, stickers, etc.


Appliques, beads, awesome flower stickers


And my AWESOME Purse!  The embroidery on it is lovely!  I may be wrong, but it looks as if Miss*Laurence painted the scene of Provence and the Lavender fields on some cream fabric, then embroidered it with both machine and hand embroidery.



Overall close-up of embroidery


Close-up of the Lavender, she also used some sheer fabric under the laveder embroidery, then clipped it close.  You can just see some of the shimmery fabric...awesome!

I just love this bag and aspire to learn how to do this.  If you like textile art, I suggest you check out Miss*Laurence's website.  She does lovely work...

Thank You!!

I think my jaw hit the floor when I saw the Provence bag!  It's absolutely amazing.  I'm glad I took mclianne's advice and checked out Miss*Laurence's blog too - her work is beautiful, and she also describes how she made the bag there!

Looking at all the great stuff everyone got I am feeling a little nervous that my partner wont like what I made for her.  In my own defense, I was going to make her a crocheted top but she never replied to my emails to find out what size.  This is my first swap, so I am kinda worried.  For some reason, whenever I do anything like this some calamity happens and it gets all messed up.  Hope this one goes well.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.  LaShawn  Embarrassed
