My swap buddy

My shopping tote swap buddy Kim received the shopping tote I made for her. This morning when she told me she did'nt get hers yet I felt bad because I got mine from her yesterday afternoon so now I feel much better that she got hers.

She talks about it here.

Here are a few pictures I took before sending it off to Ontario. As I've mentioned to Kim, this was my first sewing project since high school (and that is many, many years ago but who's counting).



This was my first swap and I enjoyed it A LOT. I will definetely sign-up for more swaps. I think Down to Earth is going to announce another one on the weekend. What I enjoyed most was meeting a new friend like Kim and of course getting free stuff :-) and a beautiful shopping bag.

Vickie, You did a beautiful job on the tote. I love the lining, so cheery.

What an amazing job you did on the tote bag; you are so talented and creative - I adore that inside fabric. It is so much like spring.

Barb and Colleen - thank you very much for your comforting words. The lining was actually two placemats that I had found at Frenchy's.
