I was a player in the Fall Intrigues Basket Swap over at the Something Special site. http://askmichelesomethingspecial.blogspot.com
This was such a pleasure! I was paired up with someone who, like me, also lives in the valley of the sun. She is Fabric Artist and sent some beautiful things! Here is what I received:
...adorable towels and a pumpkin body sponge!
I have a passion for candles...and look at this cute oil and vinegar container!
I am totally into stamping and have a fondness for all kinds of tags, it's like she read my mind!
Some dark brown Aida cloth...I do enjoy cross-stitching and did a lot more of it back in the day when I had better eyesight! I just might have to get one of those magnifying glass thingeys that you wear on your chest, and do a project, once again! The small vintage looking napkins (serviettes as they call them in Canada) are also so very charming.
I absolutely love the apron, and it will be so fun now, and in the future, when I become a grandmother--which may now come my way sooner that I would have thought (I totally can't wait for that!).
I have had such a hectic last few weeks because of travel and my son's wedding, (I'm a brand new mother-in-law!) so I'm a little behind on all my projects. My basket to give is in the works and almost done, I just have to finish up a couple of things. My partner is out of town for a few weeks, however, so I really don't have to rush it, but do want to get it done ASAP. Here is a preview of what I am giving:
Hand-stamped cards, candle and container, hot pad, scarecrow decorations, off-white, floral pillow, small rusty watercan, and candy corn, etc., cause I've got some other goodies to add to this!
Oh and by the way, just couldn't resist posting a picture of my son and his new bride! Aren't they a lovely couple?
