vintage swap: part 2...

... Tawnya has confirmed that she received my package so now I can show the items I sent to her. First, there were woodland creatures (the squirrel can be hung on the wall)
 

Pink Flamingo Pyrex
 
 
and embroidered linens, a hankie and feedsack pieces
 
 all wrapped up in boxes along with a folder of free embroidery patterns I found online and printed off
 I'm really glad I participated in this swap and can't wait for the next one! I do have a deadline coming for the Embroidered Button Swap, which I'm excited for too.

Well, we're off to Kansas City to spend the day with the family for Bernie's brother's birthday... have a great weekend!

You are a great swap partner!! After my life settles down a bit more I'm continuing to organzing the mini vintage swap on my blog. I'm sure it will be a blast!

P.S. You are right- I should end the afghan with brown because that's how it started (though it's not the same brown, which doesn't seem to exist..grrrr!). However, even though everyone says it's easy, I don't think I can figure out the scallops. :( I watched some tutorials online but it's not helping- plus everyone has a different way of doing them. And I'm just not sure which hole I'm supposed to be going into..I'm hopeless!!! :( If I can figure it out, I'll finish doing the last olive green section, then one row of the cream, and then the finishing brown scalloped row.

Hi :) I thought that my little hexagon quilt project was a pretty good distraction to! LOL. Looks like you've been having fun swapping to. Love the little woodland creatures. Those are so cute :)
