More Swaps!

If Shawnee, Jill or Dawnise look at my blog PLEASE don't go any further unless you received your package from me. No peeking!!!

I finally got my Wizard of Oz swap package sent to my partner Shawnee. I made her a tote bag and attached crochet red flowers (they're suppose to be posies) to the front. I made her a wooden wall hanging with yellow brick road fabric and images. It says, "There's No Place Like Home". I had to make Shawnee some kind of an apron because she is the Queen of Aprons-so I made one for her dish soap bottle. I also sent a little pink bottle of bubbles that is suppose to represent Glenda and a bag and tin of assorted ribbons and buttons in a "Rainbow of Colors." I hope you like everything Shawnee!!

Next is what I sent to Jill for the Fairy Tale Swap. I picked "Little Red Riding Hood" as my theme for Jill. I made her a red tote bag, a red riding hood cape for a doll, and I also sent her a vintage story book and tin dish set for Red Riding Hood and Grandma.

I just mailed out my Flirty Apron "Where I wish I could have gone on my summer vacation" Swap package today. My partner wanted to go to Ireland/Scotland. I tried to make the apron out of her favorite colors and use a tartan plaid for the theme.

This is the pattern that I used.

I hope they both like everything!! I still am behind on 5 swaps and 8 giveaways. The Fairy Door Swap, The Vintage Halloween Swap, The Gratitude Swap, The Fall Swap and the Witch Switch Swap. I have something started for all of them and will have them all out by the first of next week. I guess everyone knows what I will be doing for the next few days, huh?? I still have the giveaways from my blogiversary to mail out too. I will get everybody's stuff out, REALLY!!!!
