I am seeing Dots!!

Good evening everyone! It is time to reveal the Dotty Swap between myself and Mom Wald's Place. Back in January our lovely hostess, Holly from Cutie Pie Cottage organized a most wonderful swap. She wanted to hold her very first Dotty Swap. It was a great idea and many responded. 

My partner for this swap was Mary and her lovely blog Mom Wald's Place. Thanks Holly for all the fun!
Mary, packed me the prettiest 3 packages in the cutest red and pink dotty tissue.

The first package that I opened had this pretty little refrigerator notepad with this wide-eyed owl on it. 
And Mary wrote this kind little note. She included a yummy little box of Jelly Bellies!

The second little package had the most precious little hand made clutch in it!

 Look at the pretty fabric, different shades of pink and green dots, with tiny kittens and flowers, also in bright green shades! The inside lining is a light green with white dots.

Mary hand quilted these layers together with many brightly colored embroidery floss circles, or dots! The little flap is held together with tiny snaps. I can't wait to use this! It is such a handy size, and ready for Spring time!

On to the third package.. That is Harley there on the table having fun discovering what is inside. He is curious! Yes this is so exciting...

It is the prettiest hand embroidered linen towel. Look at the little saucer with red polka dots! Oh, my it is tumbling around, dots are all around the towel! Doesn't it look happy!

 Look how pretty all of this is. I am just so happy! The linen towel is so pretty, too It has such a pretty edge and embossed floral, that is hard to see in the picture. Mary did the most delicate stitching. The red will be perfect with all my kitchen accessories. I think I may use it as a table center topper for the dining room.

This picture is sideways, I don't know why, because when I transfer it from the computer, it is not.. so look sideways..

This is my Harley, he is always in the middle of all my crafting, so he was interested in what Mary sent as well.
Here is another close up of the pretty tea cup stitching...

Mary you have been a wonderful partner in this swap. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into these beautiful exchange of gifts!

I pray that Mary likes the Dots I sent her as much as I will enjoy mine!

 Here is a sneek peek at what I made and sent to Mary, but go see for yourself!
Dotty tags I made for Mary. That is Harley's paw in the bottom left corner! He likes them too!
Holly, Thanks so much for having such a fun swap!

God bless you all!

  1. Oh you are most welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed the swap and I'm with Harley, I love all this dottiness! ♥

  2. What a fab swap - I really love the clutch, the colours are perfect for spring! The embroidered cloth is wonderful, what a talented lady your swap partner is. The goodies you sent were lovely too - I really love the green and pink together, such a winning combination! Have a beautiful day x

  3. It's so much fun to see what each person made to suit the tastes of their swap partners. It shows they cared enough to get to know their partners' favorite colors and even hobbies. These swaps are a blessing! =D You did a wonderful job, Susie. {{{HUGS}}}

  4. Wow -- that was a great swap! I love doing dish towels with red thread, too. It is so striking! What a fun theme of "dots"! I personally am seeing forks -- because of your blog's background! (Wink!)

  5. The hand quilted clutch is adorable! I think that's my favorite within this swap, but the stitching on the linen hand towel is lovely as well. Looks like you received some fine items.

    Harley is too cute! My cats are like that too - always curious when there are packages laying about.

  6. OH MY GOODNESS! You are just so sweet. I haven't had the time to go blogging and did not see this wonderful post until just now. I wish we were near each other so that I could give you a big hug.

    I did not think I would be able to share the goodies you made me until Saturday, but I just could not wait any longer. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

    1. Mary, here it is a big
      Feel the squeeze?

  7. Harley is so handsome. He looks very snuggly. Hi Harley!

  8. Hi there, thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. I joined your linky followers too! Girl, you don't need an instruction book on blogging, yours is gorgeous! I just LOVE the forks in the background and the cook at the stove. One of the cutest blogs yet!
    from me and Wilma
    PS-and who is that SuZy Homemaker doll on your sidebar? I will have to check her out on eBay!! :-)

  9. Cute, cute Susie! I love all of your fun gifts, but the teacup towel is (of course) my fav! The gifts you sent look so fun also. My swap partner has been ill so I have not received mine yet. Thought that I would show what I make her when I blog about mine. Hopefully no too much longer. Have a wonderful Sunday!

  10. Wow, your dotty swap gift are great, giving & receiving! You are certainly a talented group of crafters. I really enjoy reading all your creative blogs. Polka dots prevail!
