Look what Lilyvanilli made for me!  Two embroidered dishtowels straight off my wists, a totebag with an embroidery patch (also wist-inspired), and some lovely green and blue fabric! 

Here's a close-up of the embroidery on blue felt.  The color is a bit off--felt is impossibly shiny when photographed with a flash but the afternoon light doesn't do its robin's egg blue justice--

What a thoughtful and beautifully-made package!  The embroidery on the kitchen towel is remarkably sturdy, and i love the stitch definition on the tote bag.  I am sooo pleased!  the towels are already hanging on my kitchen, and the tote bag is on the doorknob with books in it for the library tomorrow...A swap package that is integrated seamlessly into everyday lilfe--my favorite kind!  Thank you, Lily!

I received from CrossStitchinMomma today!!  She chose me for legwarmers, and I felt really badly as she stressed over finding just the right yarn - she went with a teal ish, heathered... and they're absolutely gorgeous!  the knitting is so even, they're wonderful!

this picture shows the color the best:

And here are my happy legs being all cozy!

CSM, thank you so much, i love them!

I wisted that flower (dandelion?) embroidery on blue felt.  It's just beautiful.

Wow, such a great group of packages! I love the legwarmers, and those embroidered towels are beautiful!

mountaingrrl, I'm so glad you enjoyed your package! I'm a big fan of packages full of little bitty things and surprises, so I always try to stuff in as many things into hiding places as I can  Grin

Okay, so I thought I had this thread bookmarked but apparently not! I just got caught up on all 9 pages! Yowza, there's some great stuff in this gallery!

oneredboot - I'm so glad you like everything! I had fun crafting for you and can't wait to start again! Grin

nofury - I will definitely claim you. It will have to wait until next round though since I'm trying to frantically to finish 3 other swap packages by the end of the month.

Everyone else, thanks for the nice comments.

I received an apron from mommythemaid yesterday  Smiley ans, as is normal, my sister claimed it as hers!  We had a big family dinner tonight and she came over early to help cook and proclaimed it beautiful and wore it all evening.  However, not normal, is that she didn't take it with her (she is moving and doesn't want any extra anything right now).  So the apron is currently safe with me!
