don't forget send outs are the 23rd.  anyone need an extension that they know of yet.   remember to let librarylass or myself (supermedic) and your partner know.  hopefully i will be able to mail out today.  just 2 small things to finish now.  hate when i pick up extra time at work (esp three weeks in a row).

I have one.  I embroidered an apron with this design. 

There was also a knit dishcloth and some recipes in there.  I'm just so glad you like it!  This was my first exchange!   Cheesy

I recieved -- all the way from Australia-- from farmgirljane.  Who must of made everything the night the partners were announced to have it get to me so soon from Australia to the US

I was soooooooooo very spoiled.  My kitchen is in a coca-cola theme (its the one room that I've contained the growing collection of coca-cola antiques, pictures, glasses and bottles that my SO has amassed)

Anyways farmgirljane sent me
-- 4 quilted red placemats with a coke "swoosh", on the reverse the placemats are black
-- A matching center placemat type thing to put serving dishes on-- same design as the placemats, just more detail trimwork.
-- 4 napkins with button napkin rings + two tea towels she purchased
-- washcloth and potholder again with the red coke "swoosh"
-- a mat board ready for frame made out coca-cola labels

some pictures.  uh-oh I accidently delete the photo of the placemats, here's a closeup of the napkins and the napkin rings

and here's more stuff (minus the placemats) but the design of the placemats match the potholder

I'm furiously working away to send out a package of hand-crafted goodies that matches the level of detail and thoughfulness that farmgirljane has put into my package. 

Thanks you so much, and by coca-cola obsessed significant other also sends his thanks.  he's deemd these napkins to be fancy dinner napkins, so he's all set for out next anniversary dinner : )

THANKS again to my awesome partner from down under, FARMGIRLJANE, and thanks to the organizers, too !

Finally on the Wist Bandwagon:  http://wists.com/OopsCreations

I have loads of good quality CIGAR BOXES available for trade.  Great for purses, shrines, jewelry boxes.  PM for Pics.

i cant sew for the life of me but i invested in some fusible hem table and interfacing... i've tried making placemats, but they didn't come out perfect... and i'm a perfectionist.

ah, back to the drawing board.

I am so glad that they arrived safely.  And - yes- I did start on the day names where announced. With such a wonderfully themed room inspiration was like a lightening bolt. I could have kept going.  Here are some images I have of the table centre and the place mats - excuse the crinklyness of them as I had to unpack them at the last minute to take pics - nearly forgot again. Grin

To the organizers have sooo enjoyed this swap, round 2?
