Swap what you have! has arrived!!!!

EDIT: To see my end of the deal on this swap you can view the photo's here. And thanks for all the help on the blogger issues!

Yesterday I received my swap package for the "Swap what you have" swap (organized by Katie). My partner, Anina, did a wonderful job. I'll be able to use all of it! The wildflower seeds will be enjoyed by my mom. She planted some this spring and they turned out well. There are also some blank note cards, fabric, buttons and beads, paper, and ribbon. It's all put away ready to pull out at a moments notice. Anina, thanks so much!

And if the swap wasn't enough, I was the lucky 100th post winner on Anina blog! Lightning can strike the same spot twice!

How did you know I have been wanting a tissue holder for my purse?!? Saves me from making one now. The tissues and pen were put in my purse right away, and if I could think of a logical reason to have the orange pincushion in my purse, it would be in there too. I was thinking the other day that I needed a pincushion just for at my ironing board, so that's it's new home. It makes me happy just looking at it!

I also finished up my summer swap package and it was put in the mail today. I had a lot of fun putting this swap together. Even though my partner, Elise, doesn't have a blog we have been emailing back and forth and I had enough to go on to make it really personalized to her and her hobby interests. I can't wait til she gets it!

Now onto summer time sewing. I better make those skirts I had planned on before the summer is over.

  2. It looks like you got some great surprises! That tissue holder and pin cushion are both so pretty too. And yes, I need to work on skirts too. At the rate I'm going, my fall clothes will look mighty summery!

  5. The blogger thing is a pain in the rear. You have to point your cursor at the very top of the title box, with the cursor touching the top line to get a cursor to appear there.

  7. Great Swap!

    Supposedly blogger fixed the title thing. In case it happens again: if you are in a form, you can tab from field to field. You can also shift+tab (hold down shift and press tab) to go backwards through the form fields. All I did to get to the title field is put my cursor in the post body text area, then hold down shift and press tab. That will put your cursor in the title field. This will work with any form.

  8. Great stuff! I'm hoping you'll post photos of what you sent to your summer swap partner once she receives it. I love seeing what people receive in their swaps. :)
