Super cute stuff everyone, I'm glad you liked the cocktail skirt, and i made myself a vintage appliance/cupcake apron like that too when I saw how cute it came out.

Love the cherry box and the sailor skirt and the teal pillbox hat rocks!

I just got back from vacation and Lindsay_Loo's package was waiting when I came home!  How awesome is that?!? Smiley

Here's what was in it:

I love these sweater clips:

Cute little hat:

I've been trying to find the cable that connects my fiance's phone to the computer to upload pictures, but it looks like I'm going to be buying a disposable camera instead. Pictures are on there way soon, hopefully.
In the meantime, I've been enjoying all of my nifty things from cadet.

I got my wonderful package from LoveDovieAnn, it truly is like Christmas in July!

First up some beautiful table linens, adorable crocheted flower (I'm so rocking this hair accessorie) and the most amazing tie purse in tiki-esque print. I LOVE it! (This picture does not do it justice either)

And check out this adorable romper!

With embellishment detail. So cute and perfect for our non-stop 100+ weather here in Texas. Can't wait to wear it.

And last but not least a great altered polka-dot tee. I litterally went "yeay polka dots!" (it's kind of an obsession)

A huge thank you to my swap partner! I can't believe she put together all these fantastic goodies despite life tossing a lot of curve balls. This was a great first swap experience!

I'm so glad you liked your package, pieknits! I admit to some swap anxiety when your package came before I'd even sent! I do hope the playsuit fits. I've never worked with or bought something so small. All the ladies I sew for are big.

I want that romper!!

Also loving the little anchor detail on the sailor skirt, those tatted pearl studs, and the embellished cardie. Such awesome stuff everyone's made! Smiley

Whoa! Everyone has made such nice stuff! I'm a little anxious about the things I made joining this gallery now. Wink

Love the pillbox hat and the hawaiian/tiki fabric for the tie purse is totally lush.

That sailor skirt is too cute! And so is that pillbox hat!  Wonderful stuff so far, just wonderful!

Any thing can be fixed with tape and love.
