Swappy Goodness!

I was recently in Malissa's Bits and Baubles Swap and my swap partner was Michelle from Vintage Squirrel. Michelle sent me this wonderful bag filled with some pretty paper, a fat quarter of stripe fabric, some beads and buttons and some beautiful trims. There is lace, ric rac and sequins. Fun!! I can't wait to use some of them.

This is what I sent to Michelle. I crocheted her some flowers and sent some brads, buttons and trims. I hope Michelle enjoys her stuff as much as I do mine!!

Today I'm working on a couple of Christmas gifts that I haven't finished. Yes, I said Christmas. I have been putting them off and today is the day to finish them and get them to their recipients!! I'm also working on the Easter Egg Swap and mine and the kids Fairy Swaps. A busy day indeed!!

Hi Sherry,
It's me, Michelle (aka Vintagesquirrel). And, I love, love love everythin you sent me. (I especially love the crocheted flowers!) Thank you for your generosity, especially for taking the time to crochet those sweet flowers. I plan to use them in my new embellishing hobby. I am becoming obsessed with adding ribbons, flowers, appliques, andother trims to my clothes. It' my way of adding a little bling to my boring wadrobe.

Thanks again!!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
