It's so hard getting swap items and then not being able to post!

And fatewineroses, that started out as a small and then, well, sort of took over. So don't feel bad, it wasn't my fault!!!!
The tatoos and umbrellas were languishing in one of my stuff drawers, they just seemed too much fun to leave out!

But fatewineroses did send chocolate....so we are even.

Test post for links to pictures. Give this a whirl. Fatewineroses sent me this patch. Hand embroidered and all! And unfortunately, the chocolate is all gone. We went with a small swap and this is perfect for my next protest/march!

I've been checking every day to see when it all worked again. I am hoping today is the day!
Well, I couldn't get them to upload on Craftster, but I was able to get flickr to work. (Thank you CLM!!)

You might have read above that Cmarion had a project that kind of got away from her! I was lucky to have read that; otherwise I would have been very confused at the box I received.  Huh I mean, I sent an ENVELOPE!  Shocked I opened the box to this rainbow-y goodness! On the sides I could see drink umbrellas and little boxes of temporary tattoos!

I unrolled everything and these three beauties fell out. I should have gotten a photo of the other sides too. They are so cute!

And finally I unrolled this. I really was flabbergasted. She told me I could use it as a mug rug, a wall hanging or a large prayer flag.  Cheesy I picked wall hanging. I'm starting a new job next month and I might hang it in my area. For now it is hanging with my race bling. If you look closely, you can see the bead swirl details. There is so much going on in this piece that every time I look at it, I see new things.

Thank you SO much Carol. I am not worthy! It is a fabulous piece and I am honored to have it be mine.

Well what can you do with that box of tiny scraps? I saw this on pinterest some wher and it just grabbed me. I drew the heart in a piece of  backing fabic, then started laying down the colors. I worked color by color, scribble stitching it down with my sewing machine. Then on to the next. Unfortunately I hardly diminished my stash. After the front was done I quilted it up with a standard quilt sandwich and more stitching. Fun.

I am so happy it has gone to a good home to spread more love and acceptance.

I keep checking the gallery to see the rest of the goodies but alas, the photo hosting is still on the fritz. We have seen half the received parcels so far, I am very excited for the rest! Just to let you know, I have been using flickr to post my photos during this time. I will transfer everything here when it's all mended but in the meantime that has been working great for me (& it's free!).

I might try Flickr or another site tomorrow to upload a pic of what gala_apples sent me. But in the meantime, here is a pic of what I sent her. It's the asexual pride flag as the background.

I am going to try again to post the wonderful patch fatewineroses sent. I love the message, it is absolutely perfect. It's ready to be attached to whatever I'm wearing to the next rally. I love it and love that she followed my request for something small...because I did not honor that request in reverse. LOL. And the chocolate is long gone. Thank you fatewineroses
