Swaps Received

I've received some lovely swaps lately, and thought I should quick share

My dishcloths from Kimtastic on

My mini quilt from taylynnsbean on flickr

and this one I made for taylynnsbean on flickr the theme was "out of the box" mini quilts. I have always wanted to do hexes, but they seem so daunting on a big quilt. I have been obsessed with wanting a beehive lately, so they sort of went together. I really like this, and may have to make one for myself. The bee was hand embroidered.
