I love the chair pincushion!

PM me for a FREE vintage embroidery transfer of mushrooms (more info in profile).
It's electric.

Sorry it has taken me so long to post these pictures!  My mystery swap partner was Mamarose22 and man did she spoil me.

Here is the group pic:

This is the needlebook she sent me.  Straight from my wist!  It's sooo beautiful!!

Pear pincushion also from my wist.  What a good stalker swapper!

An apple potholder already hanging from my oven:

The inside of the checkbook cover:

And finally a framed cupcake for my kitchen!!

Thanks again Mamarose Smiley

I'm glad you liked everything Purelectricity.  I don't own a camera and I usually have to get my daughter over for my pictures.  I sometimes mail out the package before she can come over so I didn't have any pictures.  You did a good job of photographing everything.  When I receive a swap, most of the time she can come over to take pictures of my goodies, if not I have to rely on the sender to post.  So, I too am sometimes late with posting. 

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

OOOO! I love the Needle Book! It looks just like the one from my wist! And the pear is awesome. Love the fabric choice as well.  Smiley

I received from AmphipodGirl over the weekend- it was an amazing package!  She sent a very nice letter in which she mentioned checking out my myspace (though it was obvious from the contents, she had done a fair amount of stalking!), and provided a recipe for gluten free cookies (my son has celiac disease and can-not have gluten) that we have yet to try.  She sent a ball for my daughter, which she LOVES (perfect timing too, she is just starting to crawl around and will push it and go after it).  It is difficult to explain.....it is fabric (3 different patterns and textures!), and oddly shaped- I actually have a pattern for it and wanted to make one, but couldn't figure out how to put it together!  For my son she sent a home-made deck of "cards"- wooden disks with painted dinosaurs, a sheet detailing different games that could be played with them, a sheet identifying the different dinosaurs, and a bag to keep them all in.  She also sent me a bag, which contained a package of gorgeous origami paper, and as extras some chopsticks, a little wooden box, some pretty bento box picks, and Japanese candies (I used to live in Japan and still love all things Japanese).  Thank you so much AmphipodGirl, the package was awesome!

I received my small mystery swap package yesterday, from Kimberly I love it, and she made way over the 5 points!!! She sent me cute kitty ?pincushions?  but they have a clothespin inside of them so they can pinch onto stuff, some super duper cool long dangly earrings (thread wrapped), a GREAT pincushion, some neato crochet patterns, and a bar of great smelling homemade soap!! Thanks Kimberly

I got my mystery package today from Dinosaurus Meg. She mentioned in the swap thread that she didn't know what to make for her partner (me) but I think she did a great job deciding.

Group shot:

The book Tease from my Amazon Wishlist (brand new!) and she made me a cute brown apron with cupcakes on a blue background! I am in love with cupcake fabric but can only ever find them on pink. The blue and brown go great together. I always dream of making my own apron, but never have. So now I have my very own! And I love the pockets too!!!

Slightly blurry detail of the cupcakes:

I am just loving everything so far! Keep it coming guys!

That crochet book looks like a great one!

Hey ccwsch, what was the project that you did for me that you said you failed on the first attempt? Im just curious  Smiley

The crochet hook holder. I couldn't find a coordinating bias tape in my stash so I tried to use some fold-over-elastic I had and it looked horrible. I couldn't get the corners of it to fit right without stretching it, which made them roll in terribly. Fortunately my daughter loves it so it wasn't a total failure, but now I have to buy her more hooks to fill it lol.

Kartiana, I am so glad you like everything Cheesy And the book is used so it's got an extra aura of love around it Tongue (I've had/used it for over a year but I guess I was pretty easy on it compared to some of my other books Wink ) Cheesy I am really glad you like the cupcakes, when I read you loved cupcakes but hated pink I was like "What!? Pink is the ultimate cupcake color! Where will I ever find such fabric?" *off to Fabric adventure land* And then I found that which was totally cute. I am glad you like everything Cheesy I had fun making your apron Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.
