I am so far behind on blogging. I've just been in my own little world....pretty much keeping to myself and just doing my own piddling around here. I have been busy, yet feel like I'm in a rut. Weird, I know, but that's just how it has been.
I've really needed to post the Fall Basket Swap and apologize to Michele (the host) and Carol (my partner) both for being so late in doing so. It was really a fun swap and Carol sent me the nicest basket full of goodies.
Carol sent me this basket and it was filled with goodies. There is some ribbon, cool Halloween fabric, tea, a coin purse, scrapbook stuff, a wreath, post-it-notes, flowers, a gorgeous bottle, etc...... My absolute favorite thing though is the "Orphaned Clip-On Earrings". They are so pretty and in fall colors. They look just like ones my Nana and Grandma wore. They are such beautiful little treasures!
Here's the stuff that I sent to Carol. I made her a two little bags. One has cinnamon sticks and anise stars and nutmeg in it and the other is to hold some of the other goodies. I also crocheted her a dishcloth and tawashi in fall colors and made some yo-yo's and clothes pins in fall colors too.
