Swap Shots

I've sent off my cupcake themed apron for the Cupcake and Tea Swap. My apron (based on the cakeland number in A Is for Apron) went to the girls at A Spoonful of Sugar and I was glad that they were kind about it!
And I also sent off my goodies for the Alabama Stitch Swap to Betty Ninja. Of course I had to make the bunny project!
These are my photos - but I can't believe the pictures that Betty took of the little bunny and needle book I made .... she really has an amazing talent with a camera.

I have to say that I really enjoyed making the goodies for both these swaps - I will be signing up for more swaps in the future for sure!

Those are some very lovely swap goodies - what lucky ladies. I think that apron is magic - so pretty. Still working on mine (colic has prevented much crafting or blogging) but I can't wait to send it off. Sorry to have not visited for a while.

We love the apron Rachael!! Your photos turned out better than ours though - amazing what a difference a sunny day makes. Love the cute little bunny you made for the other swap - just lovely.

What a pretty apron Rachel! I just love the delicate pleats and love the shape of the top - I need to make an apron in gingham asap - I think I may try your "petticoat" idea - it's so lovely! And your rabbit is fun! Have your read the Max and Ruby rabbit books - I'm sure you'll love them!

Such lovely things. What book was bunny from? Now my machine and I are on semi friendly terms I might just have a go at the odd project or two.
Have sent off my cupcake swap, but need some assistance with flickr, a real dunce in that area as yet.

Hi Rachael - can you let my swapee know that I have posted her goodies, but I've had to send it via overseas, which means she won't receive it until the end of August!!
Is there a flickr group where people are posting their pictures?
