Wow! So many amazing packages!!!!!  Grin

Leslie, I am so glad that you likes the package. Smiley The coasters were my 'practice' and I decided they were good enough to send too!!! LOL!!!! The sewing on them all took 2 whole spools of thread!!!!  Shocked

I'm a first time swapper here, but have done small swaps on mummy forums here in the land of Aus. Wink

Leslie, You have completely spoilt me!  Grin

The wonderful card, and a FQ of lovely fabric. Now to decide what I am going to make with it!!!!

A beautiful, beautiful bag. I absolutely love the fabric!

A matching purse.

The button on the purse - Leslie got this off of my pinterest. It is special to me, I had this as my profile pic on Facebook for many months!

Thanks again Leslie, I am so glad that I participated in this swap, I have been completely and utterly spoilt.  Cheesy

Woohooo, an original Leslie-bag! Lucky you, nessnbel! You both spoiled each other, isn't that great?
That bag is so awesome and so is the matching purse.

HAHAHA, love that pin! I am going to use that phrase, hahaha, just to see the look on faces, so funny!

Great package, Leslie! Exactly what I expected it would be  Cheesy

all righty! time to see the wonderful summery goodies bestowed upon my by spidermom!  Grin

fisrt, we did agree on extras, so check out this spoilage...

some puzzle books, gum, & pens to keep me occupied this summer

next, a cute little wristlet

love the fabric. it just screams summer!

to go with the wristlet, a plastic lined pouch.

perfect size for a wet bathing suit. i will be using this, hopefully quite a bit, especially since it's been so danged hot. after my new tattoo heals, i will be poolside with my new goodies.

and finally, something to carry it all in

a tote! one can never have too many totes!!

and look at the embroidery skills here!!

the picture just does not do it justice. tons of tiny little french knots make up that flower center. i wish mine were that good.  Roll Eyes all the stitches are soooo neat and tidy.

love, love, love it all.

thanks so much spidermom!! i really enjoyed swapping with you!  Grin

love all the different prints on that purse!  the button is great too, great motto to live by!

so glad you like everything abbeyrd83!!!  Grin  it was such fun swapping with you and such a lovely challenge for a newbie sewer like me!

i can't take credit for the plastic lined pouch, it was abbey's brilliant suggestion in her questionnaire Smiley now my daughter and niece have both requested one to keep wet swimwear in!

here's a close up of the embroidery (took soooo many pictures trying to show off the details!)  Wink

So beautiful!!
Wow everything about that flower is lush. The center part, all of it really, so much texture! But the center part is  so wild...are those all knots??
