Fall Swap

Morning!!! I am back from Chicago as of this weekend and trying to get back into the swing of things here. Hubby's kidney stone appears to be gone on x-ray, hurray! Now we can focus on everything else again.

I recently participated in a Fall Swap hostessed by Lori (such a sweetie!) and my swap partner was Chrissie Grace (oh so talented!!!). This was a very fun swap to be in! I didn't get a chance to take pictures of everything, that I sent Chrissie, with hubby in the hospital at the time of mailing but I know she posted them on her blog. I do have one picture though...

I made her a stuffed wool felt owl. She said she wanted to add more owls to her fall decor.
Here is what she sent to me...I LOVE EVERYTHING!!!
Chrissie and I sent each other acorns! Too cool! A really cool bookmark, she made. Some rocks that she painted (she paints beautifully! Check her out!)

A closer view of the rocks and other items.

I have lots of projects that I'm working on. I will be delivering the embellished hats to the Ronald McDonald House this weekend. I need to get going on my flower scarf again! And I have a ton of ideas floating around in my head! Sooo much to do...soooo little time with the housework and all too! How do you all do it!?! What's the secret!?! I see so many finished projects out there and I'm always in the middle of one. Hmmm!?!
Well, have a great day everyone!

Hi Kim,
Glad your hubby is all better!
Very sweet owl you made for your partner and nice treasure she sent you.
I feel there isn't enough time in the day...and blogging takes up a lot of time...but love doing it.

Hi Kim, I love the owl nice work, the colours you have used are nice too. Your not on your own about not enough hours in the day to finish sewing projects and knitty ones, I have 4 gifts on the go in between dusting. Its fun though. best wishes Julie.C
