kitchen swap


Marisol of Purls Just Wanna Have Fun organized a sweet little kitchen swap - and my partner was Knittingma. What a great partner - first of all it was so fun getting to know more about her - I mean we had commented back and forth but this was a cool new element, swapping some cool kitchen stuff.

First, she sent me a very kitschy pear loofa, I love it! My husband was fruitlessly (get it, fruit-less? doh!) looking for our old scrubber this week, well, let me tell you - I could not crack open the pear. I couldn't. But I will, in secret. And a neat apple drainer plug - so cool! And the most awesome dishcloth - I had a heckuva time trying to find a nice dishcloth pattern - thank you Becky for taking the legwork for me. I will definitely be making some more - as well as the funky felted oven mitt/ potholder pattern she included. So many things, however, the chocolate was quickly eaten. In the interest of keeping it from getting melty - a girl's gotta do....


We were also to include some handwritten recipes in the swap package, truly, this most cost effective piece was my most favorite - I mean hand written. I love that. I never get letters - or recipes - so this was truly appreciated. Well, she sent me an awesome pesto recipe to try as well as several other neat ideas, including a no-bake potential-birthday-treat-idea for my little one who turns 3 at the end of the month. My gosh, she's not that little anymore, is she? Oh gosh, let's gloss over that.

Thank you Knittingma for the awesome swap - and if anyone has any clever morning *all day* sickness busters - surf over and tell her I sent ya!

I am seriously buttons away from a tiny FO - here's hoping tomorrow I can finish it up and have something knit to share.

What cute goodies. I still haven't done a swap, I always seem to miss the start of them! And to be honest I think I'd be a little nervous at doing one!
I got my plucky classic today - lovely :-)

Awesome package! The dishcloth and everything else is so thoughtful and fun! Someday I'll get over the fear and join in.

now that is an astonishingly gorgeous dishcloth. how will you ever stand to actually use it on your dishes? oh, well, maybe using it as a washcloth in the bath is a better use!

Love that dishcloth! I got three pretty ones for Xmas and I can't scrub dirt with any...too pretty! But I would lovvve the recipe to make this one! For a minute there, I thought you were having a baby until I followed the link.
I wish I had your multitasking skill. You have so much lovely stuff to blog about, yay!
