I received a package from Sherrie B, UT last week but I was knocked down with pneumonia, so I didn't send yet - sending tomorrow!

Here's what I got from Sherrie -

All the goodies

A learn to write book for my son & some cool bowl covers

More treats for the kiddos (although I am partial to sour candy, so I will def. have to share)

My favorite - a scarf and some crocheted cloths

More goodies and crocheted slippers for me & my boy! He loves them so.

THanks again, Sherrie!

i LOOOVED swapping with you aswell, and i am soo glad the blanket was to your tastes....i flip flopped on whether to add stitching to the circles, but when i got them attached, it looked like they were apart of the back, so i had to leave them lol...

i hope you like the kit too, i tried to make it something you could use without too much other supplies

i think im back....9 months almost to the day but i miss art, and i missed you guys!

So I don't know if you guys know my story from this swap. I saw DesignVigilante post a call for replacement partners for PersephoneHazard. I was excited because we seemed to have some things in common so I sent DV a message and was selected to be PH's replacement partner. Halfway into the swap it appeared that she was flaking Embarrassed And this is after I spent about $50 in shipping alone for the first two packages Roll Eyes But alas! DesignVigilante stepped up and became MY replacement partner Cheesy Which is really cool because we were partners in the very first MAF swap! She rocks!

Long story short Smiley Here's my replacement package from DesignVigilante!

She is a crochetin' and knittin' queen! A super comfy cowl, awesome market bag and amazing arm warmers! I cannot explain how much I LOVE these colors and her incredible stitchwork! Grin

She sent several other goodies as well! A pretty ball of striping cotton yarn, a pumpkin cookie cutter (I love Halloween!), two yummy smelling bars of soap, a sugar cookie candle, a basil growing kit and cool notecards! Grin

She also sent lots and lots of teas to try! I'm most excited about the blueberry, yum!

And last but not least, a whole baggie full of neat buttons! They are such a great size for knitted items!

Thanks so much, DesignVigilante!!! Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

Yay! I'm glad you liked everything. Thanks so much for the pics! I have a really bad habit of not taking pics before I send, especially since I was so late with your package and I packed it kind of frantically.

I finally got the pics I took of what you sent me off my camera phone. Here they are!:

The coolest tea towel ever that has already received a lot of compliments from my lady friends! Grin

The coolest post card EVER! I love it! I have it up on my corkboard in the office room.

Halloween candy! Most of which did not make it to the end of the day. Roll Eyes

Local handmade soap. I love handmade soap! I have super sensitive skin, so I use handmade soap almost exclusively now.

Yummy brownies!!

Awesome earrings that have also received many compliments from my girly friends!

Cute socks in my fave color!

SWEET zebra print light switch plates

Cupcake cups! i love making cupcakes!

Cute cupcake notepad that I've been using quite a bit!

AAANNNDD....for the grand finale...

The scarf I've been coveting ever since I met Ma Rut back in Make-a-friend round 1!! She's made one before and I've always wanted one of my own. I've gotten so many comments on this one! My hubby loved it as well Grin

Thanks so much, Ma Rut! I'm glad we could swap again, even if it didn't start out in the best of situations. Smiley

OMG those packages are so great!

Fantastic button up armwarmers. I can't knit a buttonhole to save my life!
I love that postcard, too. I might try to stitch up something similar as a Christmas gift for a friend. And I have those pink argyle socks. We can be matchies, DV.  Grin
The Mario/Luigi scarf is awesome too.

I'm drooling over these packages.
