Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

Kit Swap over on the 'ville.................

This swap was so much fun!
The object is to create a complete crochet or knit kit for your swap buddy.
So you need to include the pattern... yarn... hook or needles... and any added things like buttons... snaps and/or handles!
You also need to buy or make something to hold the kit in.

My swap buddy had two patterns she wanted... well... I couldnt pick just one... so I bought her both and then the supplies to make them with.
I had so many ideas for her... she was real easy to create and buy for! I couldnt seem to stop myself. heheheheeheeee

I started out by sending her this little teaser first.
A "Stash bag" with new stash in it. She loves Fall colors... so thats what she got! :)A few days later .... I mailed her the rest... which was her real Kit Swap!
Here is her tote bag I made to hold her two 'kits' The patterns...yarn and since she has all the hooks she needs... I just made her a new hook holder 'pouch'

I also made her a 'Market bag' in which I place some very important groceries! :)

Then I found some fun stuff that I just had to buy her for her kitchen... and of course... its not complete without a couple crochet fridge magnets! I was happy with how those came out!


And last just some odds and ends that just needed to be bought and made.
A rooster for her plants... a tablet of paper made from cow poo.... yup... real cow poo..... gotta love stuff out here in the country! :) And a nice bar of handmade soap.
I made her a tiny turtle that is hard to see in this picture sitting on the gift bag.... and a key cozy...over to the left with the yellow flower on it.
I'm happy to say.............................. She loved her swap goodies! *whew*

thanks for stoppin' in
God Bless
