Swap Jackpot

My my my.

I really did hit the swap jackpot ... again.

I have been so fortunate to have had such positive experiences swapping; the Kitchen Swap hosted by Terri was no exception. I was lucky enough to be matched up with Mary Grace who can not only sew, knit, and crochet but she has bunches of tutorials (some with video!). I have spent more time than I should have on the computer checking out her blog. Have you ever heard of Tunisian crochet? The finished look is really cool and Mary Grace was generous enough to have several how-to's on her blog (just click the 'crochet' on the right side and it will lead you to the list of tutorials).

Well, with out further ado ... here's the loot:

A recycled jeans apron. Here's the back story. Awesome eh?

Two Tunisian crocheted dishcloths and a nylon scrubbie. It's safe to say that my dishes will be sparkling clean now!

Did you see the cute ribbon at the top of the post and the recipes - man am I spoiled. You will have to wait until Mary Grace gets her goodies before I post them ... don't want to ruin the surprise. I will say this - great minds think alike ;-)
