The Jacket and The Swap

  I hope everyone is having a great week. I am really happy I have finally finished these jackets. I meant to have them in the mail last Friday, but I didn't finish the blue one until last night.
I will mail them when I go to lunch today..
I hope they get there really quick, especially since I meant to send them last week..
 I got my swap parcel yesterday...It came really fast. My swap partner sent it last Wednesday. I sent mine last Tuesday and it hasn't gotten there yet. The swap was with the We Love Lucy Group over on Ravelry. It was a whole lot of fun. I was paired with Tracy, aka, Chickencrazy12. She sent some really nice gifts and was so kind to send Autumn a gift as well.
Autumn was just as excited as I was to see what was inside..
It was all beautifully wrapped, however, Autumn had it all out and open before I could get the pictures. There are so many presents in this parcel. A murder mystery, a crossword book, buttons, candy, a postcard of Somerset, England bunting, Woolcraft yarn, Stylecraft yarn, There is a snowman ornament that lights up and changes colors. A lovely crochet ornament that Tracy made. It is on my tree. I am going to have to try to get a picture later when the sun comes up. It just wouldn't show up in all the photos I took. A little family of elephants. I love the elephants, I collect them..
The swap was so much fun and Tracy really did her homework. Everything she sent suits me perfectly! Thank you Tracy.  Autumn collects bears, so she LoVes the Polar Bear.
  I didn't post Tuesday's Tallies this week because, for the first time, I didn't work on the Grandala blanket at all this past week. I have had so many projects that had to be done in time for mailing. I hope to work on it this week. It is so close to being finished too.
 Autumn decorated this gingerbread house. I put the icing on and she put all the candy on. I thought it turned out cute.

I hope everyone has a great week. Thanks for reading my blog.
