Thank you so much Kerri, I love everything! The lap quilt will be super cozy while watching tv. Smile The apron and dish towel will come in handy while I'm baking Christmas cookies.

Thanks, I was hoping you would like them. I made the topper reversable with your kitchen colors if you wanted to use it that way too. Wink

I used my lap quilt last night and it was the perfect size for watching tv in my recliner. Thanks again for everything.

My gift for Dizzy will go out in the mail tomorrow morning.  I've had it finished for a while now, but just couldn't get to the PO.  Today I was too sick to leave the house while the PO was open.  ARRGH!  So, dh will mail it for me tomorrow. I had fun making the gifts.

I love doing the swaps and getting to know everyone. It DOES make the site more special.

I've had so many set backs that I'm still not done. But, MM knows and is OK w/it.

It's almost completely done. I'll be finishing it in the morning, then I have to wait 24 hours for it to dry, so it will go out on Tuesday. I would have liked to have finished it today, but I was dealing w/a drunk again.

I sent it this morning. It cost the same for regular shipping as it did for priority, so I sent it priority. So, MM may get it tomorrow.

I got her gift. She had a return address label on the package, so I just grabbed that so I didn't have to write the address down. And, I just stuck it on the package so I wouldn't lose it. I figured I'd probably have to put a regular shipping label on there. Much to my surprise, they just taped that sticker on a bit more secure!

MM should have received my gift today. I'm surprised it took as long as it did to get there. But then again, it took almost 24 hours to get from here to Philadelphia! It takes me only about 30 minutes to get there from my house.

My gift arrived today!  Dizzy made me a beautiful hooked rug of a rooster, plus several ornaments made from plastic canvas and yarn.  She did a great job!  Thanks Dizzy!

It would have taken me forever to do these items, but Dizzy is really talented and got them finished quickly. I do want to hear about the story, this sounds interesting. . .

Now that you have them, I'll start a new thread and tell the whole story. I'm glad you like the rug. I find it relaxing to make them-normally. Laughing

I got them. I thought I posted that I did. I love them-especially the ornaments and book mark! I don't know how you did them, but they're gorgeous. If I can figure out how to post pics, I need to do so so everyone can see them.

Oh good, I was hoping you'd like them. I really wanted to make you a vest, but that's a whole 'nother long story (probably similar to yours LOL!) I had big plans for that, but it just didn't happen this time.

I made the ornaments and bookmark on my embroidery machine. They are fun to do.
