:yardenxanthe-  I love the lil' quilt great colors! I admire quilters I have yet to master that. I think its the patience.
I can not take credit for the construction of the bag that I "made" for efirechild. I bought that knowing I would want to do something with it someday... and then I thought up the tree of life, drew it out, transferred it & used fabric marker & acrylic paint with fabric medium to add color.

doublegoodplus- I love the knit bag! Awesome!

efirechild- it was so great to swap with you. I'm glad you like everything. I adore the picture of your son holding the red bowl. He's such a cutie!!! I'm also glad you rec'd everything in decent time. I sent my Nani something for <3 day & she got it 2 weeks later!!! She also lives in your city.

I got mine today! Also I sent mine yesterday on priority mail oneredboot, it should get there by monday. I hope you like it.
Everything is lovely!
I woke up today and was greeted with a package.
(I opened it before I remembered to take a photo.)

First, a lovely drawstring bag! Indeed. I always need new little bags to organize the oodles of stuff I carry about.

And inside!
Three knitted coffee cup holders. I am a barista, so this is useful and adorable.
A very sweet note, and three fabric covered magnets!
They are so pretty.

My favorite coffee sleeve, it's little, perfect for a six ounce capp!
And the magnets are hard to photograph because they are so shiney.

Another try!

Yeah. They are awesome.

And in the second adorable drawstring bag there is a scarf made of repurposed clothing.
And, best of all. A hat! I'm in love!
And what a hat. It's adorable.

Oh so happy.

Thank you oneredboot!

Kovurr is an idea, but someday it will be real.

Yay! I'm so glad you like everything! Smiley

I also received my package.  Here's all the awesome goodies Jellybean313 sent me:
**sorry for the craptastic pics.  My camera needs fixin' so I'm using a crummy old 1 megapixel kodak from the lost and found. Tongue

Here's the collar, tug toy, bagsket, and zippered pouch.

Inside the zippered pouch I found 2 reusable grocery bags. Yay! I've been needing some of these and I love the fabrics!

Here's the pouch. I really love this fabric. (And great job on the zipper!)

Inside of the bagsket - it has tons and tons of different pockets!

Here it is inside out.  I love all the different scrap fabrics that she used to make it.  Gotta love the postal workers and their short shorts. Grin

And check out the awesome collar that she made for my pup!  It's adjustable and fits perfectly.  I don't have a photo of it, but the fabric on the backside has ducks on it. Love it!

Here's Caleb's favorite item, an awesome tug toy.  He absolutely loves this thing!

Thank you so much, Jellybean!  I had a really fantastic time on this swap and I love everything that you made for me.  And thank you so much for organizing.  You and Psyche are awesome. Smiley

A rupunzel scarf (being modeled so nicely by Menchi)

Everything is looking so amazing!  I have to say I love rapunzel scarves and I love that your dog is posing with it!  My dogs would either have a look of pure fear or they would try to rip it apart!

My partner's package is in her state according to USPS and if I had to guess it will be at her house tomorrow - I don't know whether to be happy or scared  Huh  haha

I got an awesome package from karin_ !

First up, a little toadstool pincushion (so cute!). Though I may use it as a decorative toadstool rather than a pincushion!

Carrying on with my toadstool interest, this delightful little mixed paper book.

And then some rockin' hand carved stamps to motivate me further to get my (recycled/recon'd) crafty business running! (And yes, you got exactly the logo I was picturing!)

Then. . . Batman pillow!! (From my Wists Cheesy) - And it is black, the picture is just a bit bleached out.

Finally, three ATCs (travel, Marie Antoinette, H) which finished off three pages in my ATC binder

Just for fun, here are some clicky pictures of the three pages she finished off for me:
Alphabet A-I


Travel (first 2 rows)/Psychology

Thanks so much Karin! It was a fabulous package Smiley
