Remember the lace motifs I made a couple weeks ago for a swap that I had signed up for with the CQI Group? Well the swap is over and my goodies finally came - I'm so excited! During the course of a month or so we were all teased with tons of pictures of all the pretties that were being submitted to the Swap Hostesses... every day I would see another pretty and say "Oh, I want one of those!" The talent that went into making each and everyone of these motifs is incredible! I received everything from SRE on silk, tatted snowflakes, baskets, stars and a seahorse!, beaded stars and cabochons, to embroidered ribbon and dyed lace to crocheted flower baskets & a heart... love them all! The nice thing about participating in a swap like this is you get a chance to see so many new techniques which, in turn, will push you into learning something new. I want to thank each and every lady for the awesome motifs I received in this swap and promise to do justice to all of them. Thank you and many thanks to our wonderful hostesses - I can't wait to do this again!
