Nah, nah, nah, nah na nah, I know what you got!
Sorry, I couldn't resist! It's so much fun, the knowing. Even more fun than the getting.
Tonight was amazing, so much fun you could feel the excitement. The oohs and ahs as each parcel was opened...

One first glance you would think these are all the same, but there are slight, subtle differences...every face has a different expression and there are variations in the flow of the cloak and the branches...
These are from Genevieve @ GM Glimmerglass,
Detail shot - these have so much dimension!
And these are from me!
Some of the detail photos didn't turn out and I only posted the ones that did. I will show more from the artist's I have missed; you haven't been left out, I just want to get a better picture so I hope you all understand.
So that is what we saw as we carefully opened each parcel.
Some of you very generously tucked in small treasures as a special thank you from you to me; I will devote a whole post just to them and that will also be coming soon.
This is a lot to absorb so I will leave you with these images and be back tomorrow night with a few more photos from the Swap itself, as well as the pieces I received.
On a final note, the quilt group I belong to were witness to tonight's goings-on and you have all inspired each of them so very much. There were more than a few that expressed interest in being a part of a Swap like this.
I know I for one am hooked.
I am so grateful for the pieces I was allotted but I am feeling a little greedy - I wish I had one from each of you.
Not very prudent, but something artful to aspire to !
