When I got home Sunday (right before the plague reared it's ugly head) I discovered two great packages: my Bend-the-Rules placemat and napkin swap and my One Atomic Summer Swap from the Atomic Housewives group. Let me tell you this kids - I have been in several swaps lately - and I have been getting screwed over. Almost to the point to make me want to swear swaps off for awhile - but I will push on with a positive attitude!! I was jipped 3 (THREE) aprons and one package of Fat Quarters. Where is the justice? Anyway - these two swaps sure helped me cope with frustration.
The BTR swap placemats look like this:
One Atomic Summer Swap:
Aren't they great? I wanted country looking placemats to match my cowboy items I have for dinner parties. They will look great! Thanks so much to my partner for such great work. These placemats will last forever!!
What a delight to receive Merry Moon - my previous partner for an Atomic Housewives swap. She is a fantastic swap partner and makes her partners feel like the luckiest person alive!! Check out the goodies I received:
How fantastic is that apron and it is all mine!!! We are having a dinner party Saturday night..... can you guess which apron I will be wearing???? I will get the husband to take some photos!!
So - needless to say - these two packages really made my day and made me feel better about swaps. I am sure we have all been stiffed once or twice from a swap. Why do people have to do that? I am late on a couple of my swaps since the plague visited us here, but my projects will be completed!!!
See you this weekend with some photos of my projects.........finally after weeks of promising!!
