My First Swap

I've been holding off on this post to make sure my partner had her goodies, and now she does! So, here's all the neat stuff I got from Tamy in the Summer Bucket of Fun Swap.

I love it all, what a great theme. I wouldn't normally be drawn to this color scheme, but it's great, isn't it? I love the little tablecloth, it's on my kitchen table right now. And Nick had a nice tall drink adorned with a big flower cozy this weekend. lol Thanks so much Tamy for making my first swap such a great time. I hope everyone else had a good experience too. You can see more swap piccies on the swap group page on Flickr.

And just for kicks, here's my swap container that I made to send to Tamy. I did an unbleached cotton tote with a big sunshine on it. I've been wanting to do a sort of messy applique for a while and this was the perfect opportunity. I found 2 great orange and yellow pillowcases at the charity shop and was able to use one for the lining.

Can't wait for the next swap. what fun!

Looks like it was a wonderful swap--for both the getter and the giver! Love the tote you made--a very ambitious applique!
