So this morning, after I left the house I realized that it was the fourth. I had it in my head that it was the third all morning, so I don't have a nine month check in on the Marathon Quilt ready. I promise that I will tomorrow. Instead I wanted to show (off) the amazing swap package I just received from the Sew Sew Modern Swap. I know I said I was done with swaps for a while, and I am, but I signed up for this one way back in September before I made that decision. My friend Sarah is one of the Swap Mamas and invited me to join and with the long timeline I couldn't resist.
I have to say I was simply amazed by a lot of what I saw being created in this swap. People put in some serious thought, time and energy. It was an outstanding swap. There were so many items that people were posting that made me swoon, including Jackie's items. Every time she posted something my heart skipped a little. And when I saw her finished bags it stopped completely. I mean, they're fabulous!
When she was sending her package out she did mention that her partner likes to travel. So I started hoping and wishing it was coming to me. And then it arrived on my doorstep. I am the luckiest girl! Woot! Even my husband commented on the bags. He was impressed and that's a huge compliment!
She completely understood my tastes and likes and got my love of quirky whimsy. I'm already using the main bag today at work. I couldn't resist! It's hard for me to pick my favorite out of all of her incredible work, but isn't that little bird with the scissors To-Die-For? Really?! It's just awesome! So, thank you Jackie. You totally rock! I am so thrilled with the bags you made just for me. I couldn't imagine better swap swag. Seriously you're incredible. Thank you so much!
