Dale's swap

A very quick post...time is running shorter and shorter.
As many of you know Dale launched a swap for Mum's Day and I gladly joined it.
The sender of my swap had to be Kim while Linda had to be my recipient.

I had very little hope of receiving it in time knowing how Italian Mail works but I am very sorry that Linda hasn't received hers yet.
Since Dale has made a post on the swaps I can show you what I did for Linda.
Nothing new , you have already seen it but Linda didn't know it was her gift.

On Mum's Day it seemed nice to me to have something ready for a new born.

I made the basket, the linens and the little quilt as well as the rattle which actually makes a noise .....if you have a very sharp ear because there is a teeny tiny ball inside it ;o)

The feeding bottle was a cheap resin reproduction which I painted and glazed to look like glass.

I hope that Linda will not have much more to wait .

Belated Happy Mother Day to you all.

This is a very sweet swap item, Rosanna. How wonderful you made a tutorial for how to do it.

I'm very sorry I spoiled your fun, I had no idea that you hadn't received your swap nor had your recipient received hers.

Please, accept my apologies. :(

Rosanna, I am sure that Linda will just squeal at this wonderful swap gift!! I love it! I just received my swap gift yesterday in the mail and I am not sure if the one I sent to Italy(Fabiola) has arrived yet. Linda should get hers soon. I think every country is slow with the mail these days!

This is the best gift for a Mother's Day swap. Must check out Dale's blog to see what the rest of you came up with :).

We just celebrated Mother's Day by bringing mum out for coffee :). She was really happy. I also got her a chakra pendant with the 7 different stones for the 7 chakras :). Got it from India when I was at the ashram :) and my niece said it looked like the traffic light :). That's what mummies are for. To tell you when to go and when to stop , right? :)
