Holy Sweet Goodness and I got me a Doll Quilt!

I love the Sweet Goodness Swaps....this round was a Summer Fun Swap - we had to make or decorate a "container" and fill it up with all sorts of fun yellow and orange goodness. My partner was Miss Katie and I love everything she sent me! She decorated a basket with cool ribbon and added a fun lining inside.

Here's what was inside! Handmade picnic placemat sets...one for each of us:) Notions, bingo game, funky retro tablecloth, a Nancy Drew for some summer reading and a covered pyrex dish filled with candy...what fun...I have been coveting those cute pyrex dishes!! I love it all - thank you so much Katie:) My package is still in route to her so I won't show any of the goodies I sent her yet:)


And my doll quilt swap arrived for the Doll Quilt Swap II - thank you Sarah! I love love love it. She used vintage fabrics from her aunt and it is SO COOL!!! I have it hanging at the end of our hallway under our engagement picture:)

I've had the day mostly to myself. Miss S is at her last day of Campfire for the summer, Hubby is off taking his final for his summer class and the house is eerily quiet. I have a to do list a mile long but I can't quite get started on anything. I've puttered at my desk, puttered on the computer, stared at the various messes that need to be put away... but instead I just feel blah...I have a nagging headache so I feel like doing nothing. We are going to have dinner tonight with my brother, Shay, and his family so I hope that will help me feel better.
