2008 SWAP Completed!


Yeah! My SWAP is done. The photos have been taken and submitted to Julie. I had to leave the photo taking until Friday, the last day to submit them, because of bad weather and lack of photographers. I realized I was living dangerously. Technology can fail at the most inopportune times and I was relying on my digital camera, computers and Internet access to work. Fortunately Friday was a gorgeous day for taking pictures, and everything went well. I am looking forward to seeing all the other SWAP's at Julie's Site http://timmelfabric.com/. The colors of my SWAP were gray, white, Caribbean blue and teal,. They came from a boucle tweed fabric that I did not use in the SWAP. I called it "Blue Skies will be Gray, Un-Teal I see you again." which reminds me of some of the goofy song titles of the music from the 40's and 50's, that my father enjoys playing, and his "punny" sense of humor. The blues were very hard to photograph accurately. Below is a picture of the 10 sewn garments and the patterns used to make them. One pair of pants was purchased, because the previously sewn Sandra Betzina pants I had planned to use didn't fit. More pictures can be seen in my SWAP Flicker album. The link is on the right hand side of the page. Today I plan to clean up my sewing room. And spend time in the yard weeding the flower beds and enjoying the scent of the wallflowers and lilies of the valley, and the sight of the pink azaleas blooming underneath the pink dogwood trees, flowering cherry trees and Chinese Fringe bushes.
