Valentine Tussie Mussie Cone Swap 2012 results!!



Here are the results of the Valentines Tussie Mussie Cone Swap that I hosted. 

WOW! Is all I can say! 
The submissions were just over the top 
Fabulous! Amazing!! Gorgeous!! & Creative!! 
I wanted to keep every single one!! I had 30 people join. This was a crazy train for me. I had decided early on I wanted to make everyone a special giftie! So I been also sewing like crazy!! 

I really wanted to show every single thing that everyone included with their swaps. There were some wonderful and generous hostess gifts. Due to the amount of cones submitted for the swap, I will post pictures of the hostess gifts in another blog post as well. If you look at the top of my post page there are tabs. One is titled Valentine Swap 2012. You can go there to see ALL the submissions and DETAIL'S (or just click hereand close ups for each individual tussie mussie. As I mentioned it would be just too much to post them all here and I try to be fair and show all the pictures. I also put a slide show at the bottom of this blog, but it will be the first time I attempted this particular one, so I do not know good it will show all the cones as of yet!! 

OK SOOOOO here we go!!!

Nann from At Nann's Table said...

There are not words enough to thankyou Cheryl for all your hard work and effort. You did an AMAZING job. I recieved Beverly's cone and it is drop dead GORGEOUS!! And all her darling vintage gifts were just PERFECT. I am thrilled to death with everything she did. And I'm displaying her cone so that any and all people who walk through my door shall see this magnificent cone. It is beyond beautiful. It is STUNNING!!

And Cheryl the darling bags you made are as sweet as they can be. I have never had that fancy of a Valentine/love letter holder even when I was young. I will treasure it the rest of my life.

Thankyou again. I count myself so lucky to have been part of this wonderful swap.

Hugs,

Nann

gypsy rose said...

Oh my! I don't know where to begin. First I guess I should thank Cheryl for hosting the swap and for the gorgeous love letter/valentine card bag. You are indeed an awesome hostess.

I received Heather's cone. I was expecting a package, but couldn't believe my eyes at the size of that box! Or the size of the cone! WOW! Vintage gorgeousness! Loved the rhinestone piece and all the crepe paper/sheet music/book pages. The lace everywhere was beautiful. I can't even imagine the time invested in the heart garland. The DIY kits were great. The hankie/napkin pocket was pure delightfulness as was everything inside. I am beyond excited! I don't know how Cheryl parted with this one, but I'm sure glad she sent it to me.

Thank you both for making this a fantastic swapping adventure!

Marlene said...
