Thanks! It really is beautiful! I just saw the thread in the Needlework section and I can't believe that was only her 4th time embroidering!

funny, we both used the blender in our projects!
she couldn't have chosen better patterns for me!
i'm so glad that we got paired up!

I am too! I about died when I saw how yours had said hello darling and i knew mine said hello love! I'm really glad you like them!

Thanks everyone for your comments! I really appreciate them!

-Also, I think I got the rick rack idea from the needlework questions and discussions board - thank goodness for that board I went there 50 million times during this process for all my questions!

Okay seriously... every time I take a break from Craftster you guys load me up with a ton of new stuff in the gallery!!  It's all so amazing I can't even begin to comment!  The work in this gallery is absolutely top notch and I don't think it could possibly get any better!   Cheesy

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I recieved my towels yesterday, but haven't been able to get online until now to post these pictures! I'm soooooooo in love with my towels that SampsonsLynnie made me! They're all so cute!!! Cheesy

Everything together: all 3 towels, a super cute letter on Hello Kitty stationery, some tea that I can't wait to try (my partner is a tea-aholic, and I'm a coffee-lover.. but I've been wanting to try some new tea for awhile now! All I've really tried before is green tea! I'm a newbie when it comes to tea!), some AWESOME embroidery patterns that I forgot to take a picture of (they're folded up in this picture grr!), and some pretty sequins that I'm going to use on something pretty!

Yes, that's right ladies..... "COOKING MAMA"!!!! Grin I mentioned to SampsonsLynnie that I've been playing "Cooking Mama" on my Nintendo DS lately and I'm addicted to these types of games, and she surprised me with this adorable design!! I love it so much and I'm sooo wanting to invite people over just so they can walk in my kitchen and check out this cutie! It's perfect!


A CUPCAKE! My own little "home sweet home" to dream about! This is too too too cute for words!!


This design is sooooo beautiful! I love the colors she chose for this one. Everything is so perfect and you wouldn't believe how pretty the BACK of this towel is too! She did a really beautiful job on this! I love the birds!! Cheesy

I love everything, thank you!!!!!!

I always feel that what I make is so insignifigant and ugly.

For the record... If I ever see you type something like that again, I'll have to hunt you down and kick your hiney!

Why, might you all ask? Because today I received my towels. This morning (actually, all day) has been a pretty awful day, culminating in my son jumping onto the couch and accidentally kicking my cup of tea, which was heading for my mouth. Now this tea was VERY freshly made and VERY hot, so my face and chest were soaked with boiling water... and I was crying on the bathroom floor because I was burnt and sticky and still had to get ready to go  out with friends tonight and I just don't want to because I'm tired, dang it! I get up at 6 every day to get my kids ready for school and stuff, and then watch a baby in the evenings, sometimes until 1am...

Ok, enough griping...

So bad day. Then I opened my package. AMAZING towels. So perfectly me. So wonderfully coordinated to my kitchen. The stitching is exquisite. I am blown away by how professional these towels look! Sixblueirises is an absolutely fabulous swap partner, and I think I truly got the better end of the deal in this swap!

Take a look:
I folded the towel funny, because it has a designs on opposing corners - I wanted you to see both! I just adore flamingos.

Close up the adorable little guy... Look - even his beak is perfectly colored!

Next (also folded funny so you can see opposing corners)
and a close up...

Waterlilies really are the prettiest flower ever...

I can't even begin to say how delighted I am with these towels! I am utterly spoiled, here!

And let me add... the BACK of the towels looks as good as the front! Seriously, they do. Awesome through and through!


Bad day(scalding x exhaustion + cranky baby to care for) + package from sixblueireses = absolutely wonderful day

Thank you sixblueirises - I LOVE them sooooo much!

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.


Find me on facebook!

I love everyone's towels!!!! This swap has been SO fun!

AllieStar - Wow! I love the cupcake house (so cute!) and Cooking Mama, but man, that fan is amazing! Great job SampsonsLynnie! Where did you find your 3 patterns?

85%confusion - What a great set of towels! I love the matching colors and the water lilies! I'm also interested in the yellow fill stitch. Is it french knots?
