Swap spoiler!!

Well, my daughter and I started cleaning out the garage today preparing for the move, we had a garage sale on Monday, Memorial Day with all the things that we had cleaned out from inside the house. We thought it would be a great day for a sale, but everyone must have had other plans, it was a little slow. So we will try again this Saturday with all the goodies left from the last sale and the new goodies from the garage. I don't think anyone cares about my old craft supplies like I do. Well wish us luck!!

I sent away both of my swaps yesterday so I thought I would share some pictures of what I sent to one of my buddies, I need to make sure my other buddy receives her package before I post pictures. (She comes here to visit and I don't won't to ruin the surprise). The first swap is a Bees. Butterflies and Birdhouse Swap. All items needed to be handmade. First I knitted a blue butterfly wash cloth (I've never tried that before, it was fun knitting from a graph)

I also sent along some bath salts,

then I embroidered a pair of napkins with bees buzzing

and last I made a mini mosaic birdhouse (about 3 inches) on a stick (something everyone
needs, LOL).

Hope Mooki99 enjoys!

Maybe tomorrow I will be able to show the other swap. The first of 2 packages (full of all kinds of goodies) for Lia at the Spring Felted Bag Exchange, the second package is a felted purse and that needs to be shipped by the end of June. Then I have one more swap (embroidered pincushion) and then I done with swaps for awhile.

It was fun to share. Talk to you in a couple of days.

Beautiful work. I absolutely love the napkins. Makes me want to drop the 15 other projects I have on the go and get out the hoop and needle!
