**Edit: I didn't make this, I received it from Sewsew-a-Gogo**

Hi, guys, I'm not sure if this post is in the right place.  I'd be happy to move it if so - I didn't see a place to post personal swap "crowing."

Sewsew-a-Gogo and I did a personal swap last month and here's what she made for me!



Here's a better, closer picture:


I actually received this a little while ago, but I didn't want to post until I had the frame to mount it.  Apologies to Sewsew-a-Gogo! 

This is a photo from a children's picture book, which is awesome, because I actually work in the children's section of my library!  I went to half-priced books recently and I found the book.  The best part...

Not sure if you can see it, but the price on clearance was $2!!

Here are some more shots, with the book, and on the page she embroidered.



Isn't she awesome?  Thanks so much, Sewsew!  I have it hanging up and it makes me smile every time I walk by!

That's the cutest thing in the world. I love sock monkey things. I got some sock monkey slippers at Xmas and they are the most comfortable shoes I own.

That is so cute! I have Sewsew-A-Gogo as a partner for the tattoo swap and I just couldn't be happier! She makes such cute, unique things. This rocks!

Oh my goodness!!  It looks great!  I'm so very glad you like it!!  (And that you found the book too because no one should live without it!)  Thanks so much for such a great personal swap!  Just so everyone knows... I received an embroidery just like the one she did here  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229998.msg2501800#msg2501800  and it is so awesome!  It's hanging in a place of prominence right above my craft table!  Thanks again acajjou!!

P.S.  I love the new avatars.  I might just have to keep mine! Cheesy

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.
