Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC that arrived today. It is beautiful...not to mention that you did it in my fav colour purple! Also the card and extra lace...love! ðŸ’œ
Thank you again Annet ðŸ˜Šâ¤ï¸
Comment: I got your ATC, but nearly didn't rate you as you didn't say what swap it was from so had to try to track it down. The cross stitch is gorgeous and lots of work! Such a nice addition to my collection! Thanks so much!
Response: Sorry you had to track it down, I thought I wrote the name of the swap on the card that accompanied the ATC as I normally do. I'm glad you enjoy the mermaid, it was fun to make it for you.
Comment: Annet, thank you so much for the beautiful and very intricately embroidered ATC! I also love to embroider...and most other forms of needlework as well...I know how much time you put into this beauty! Thank you also for the Dutch book pages; I love using book pages in my artwork.
Response: I enjoyed making this embroidered ATC for you!
Comment: Annet, what a great patch! The garden fabric is beautiful and your embroidery is just lovely! I love the piece of chicken fabric you sent. It's the perfect size to do a small mug rug for my desk! Thanks!
Response: I'm glad you like it. The chicken fabric was a scrap from the border of the chicken quilt I made many years ago.
Comment: Thank you for your beautiful card, amazing how selvages can be so pretty. Thank you for the beautiful dotee kit that was very thoughtful and greatly appreciated. Sorry for the late rating my husband has been critically ill this past few weeks and I had no time for anything other than looking after him.
Response: I'm glad it arrived safely. Sending you a private message.
Comment: THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the wonderful ATC!!! LOVE IT!!!! Got it and I so love the stamp. I wish I had the chance to see this when I visit Den Haag years ago... well, who knows I might get to come around Holland again with my kids :-) Thank you again!
Response: I'm so glad it finally arrived! Love the stamp too, but I never saw this painting. I hope to see it next year!
Comment: I have seen that yogi tea tags come in a different color but never could figure out where to get them. Now I know, you must live in another country. Your cards were great, and I do really appreicate the extra tea tags you sent. I will put them to good use. I just love the joker playing card shaped like a Russian nesting doll.
Response: Wow, that was quick, just 5 days! It's good to hear you like my cards, it was so much fun to make.
Comment: I love the tall skinny Santa ice skating with his sparkly skates :) I also enjoy using jewell effects thread when I can. I also love the Santa fabric in back and I especially love how you finished him (and the lion) with the knitting thread. Thanks also for the little gift - since it came with Santa I will open it on Dec 6!
Response: I just had to use the Santa fabric for the back, it was such a grea match! Enjoy opening your presents!
Comment: I love the lion on b&w gingham!! What a fun theme :) I didn't open the little gift yet - I will wait until advent or christmas! back to the gingham - I think when all my halloween swaps wind down I will host cross stitching on gingham, if you don't mind.
Response: I'm glad you like my interpretation of the theme. And I'm looking forward to the new swaps, I love stitching on Gingham!
Comment: I love your ATC and the watercolor background. Thank you so much for reading my profile and making me the beautiful beaded crochet bracelet. Wish I could give more than one heart. Thanks for being so thoughtful.
Response: Thanks for your nice words, they made my day!
Comment: Just in time for Christmas! This one will be up on my board for the rest of the holidays! Thank you for being in the group swap! And for the stamps! On a side note- I like your cover design for next year's TAST!
Response: I'm glad it arrived before Christmas. Thanks for your comment about my TAST cover.
Comment: Thank you SO much!! I can't believe I was lucky enough to receive one of your beautiful miniature artworks! You are totally one of my favorite fiber artists, and I just ADORE the CQ ATC you made! Your stitching is so delicate and precious! Thank you!! :)
P.S. I love the little inchies! Thank you! The little embroidered inchie is especially precious! and the Christmas kitten greeting card is adorable! I love that it's written in Dutch! (Dutch, right?)
Response: Yes, it was written in Dutch. I'm glad you like my CQ ATC. The embroidery on the inchie was more than 2 years old. I started to turn some doodle cloths into inchies this year!
Comment: Thank you so much!!! I love the card and I love how you read on my profile that I love stamps!!! Thanks for sending me all the beautiful ones from your country, I love them!!! I checked out your blog and your little hand-stitched cupcakes are adorable!!!
Response: Glad you liked it! Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment: Thanks for the A & E. I like how you just used 2 designs. I am always trying to put a lot of different patterns in mine - but I like the simplicity of yours. I will have to try that next time!
Response: I'm glad you like it. It was the first time I used only 2 patterns and I liked the effect too!
Comment: Yay! I received the 2nd package this time! First off, thanks so much for re-sending! My daughter loves the frog AND the mushroom so she ran off with both! LOL. I love Wild Olive's patterns! Thank you so much!
Response: I'm glad it arrived so quickly! Your daughter makes me smile! I wrote about this swap on my blog, with a picture of the stuffie I sent you the first time. I hope the two will meet in the future!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful lace ATC and Card. You are very talented. I loved the butterflies, colours and textures. I hope you join the monthly fabric ATC swap that I host. Look under ATCs or Fabric.
Response: Thanks! I wish there are more hours in a day so I could join your swap.
Comment: Wow! The ATC is perfect!!! It reminds me of my little girl Molly and is hanging up in my office where I can see it every day:) The hand crocheted lace is beautiful and fits in just great with my collection. You could not have sent anything better for me - a thousand thanks you, a heart, and a hug<3
Response: I'm glad you like it so much, I enjoyed making it for you.
Comment: I Love, love, love the No Stitch ATC that you created for me. I love how you used assorted materail and I love the unique way that you adhered the material to the backing -- staples.............Great idea and it looks awesome. You would have thought if you used staples it would look bad but it looked GREAT. Thank you so much.
Response: Thank you. I thought, well no stitches, then you may see the staples! I never made a fabric ATC this quick.
Comment: I'd give you two hearts if I could. I love the zen. Love the paper. And love the stamp in the middle. I collect SON (Socked-On-the-Nose) cancels where the month day year from the cancel are visable on the stamp.. Just like the one you used. Thanks SO much.
Response: I'm very glad you like it, because I'm still new at zentangles. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Oh, my gosh Annet! This is such an amazing ATC. Thank you so much for lending your talent to my project. You should go ahead and post pics of it if you want. I won't give him the collection until around christmas. Aloha again!
Response: Wow, that was very quick, only 4 days! I'm glad to be part of your project. I enjoyed making this ATC.
Comment: I was quite excited when I saw I would be receiving one of your fabric ATCs, and this did not disappoint! The turtles are even cuter in person, the stitching is lovely, and the overall effect is wonderful. And a bonus bubble & squeak - thanks!!
Response: It was so much fun to make, because I knew you liked the turtle beads.
Comment: I absolutely ADORE the crazy quilt atc that you sent! The apples are perfect, and the way you picked up all the colors from that tiny piece of fabric is amazing! You do lovely work, thanks so much for sharing some of it with me! :)
Response: When I found the apple fabric I knew it was perfect for this ATC. I found the matching scraps in my box of fabric scraps.
Comment: THIS IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you soooo much for this beautiful artwork! and to have it personalized in my favorite colors, and with my initials... you have gone way above and beyond the swap guidelines, and if i could give you extra 5s and hearts, i sure would!!! Hartelyk dank! <3 <3 <3 :-D

My very first Dotee :) I was so excited when she arrived I got up early just to open her. She now lives in my bowl of pretty pebbles which sit next to my favourite seat, to remind me of the beauty in the world.
Her blanket has gone in my pretties collection too, it acts as a lovely underlie for the pebbles.
Response: I'm glad you like Rosa too. I hope she will get more Dotee friends!
Comment: Thank you for the nice Christmas Fabric ATC! I am framing the ones I received from you and Chimerix together with one that I made. Thanks for the Angel ornament, too. Had to keep that one from the kitties, although they wanted it BAD!
Response: What a lovely idea, to frame them together. Maybe you can put a picture of it in the swap gallery!
Comment: Oh my goodness, Annet, this may be the most beautiful ATC I've ever received!! What exquisite work you do. I'm just astounded. Truly, my jaw is on the floor.
Thank you so, so very much. May I post a photo on my flickr page, giving you credit, or will you post it to yours? People need to see this one. It's gorgeous.
Response: Thank you for your great comment. You may post a photo of it on your flickr page, I will put it on mine too (and on my blog).
Comment: The ATC is absolutely gorgeous, I love it! It will always be one of my top favorites, you did such an excellent job! Thanks too for the coins for my son, he's thrilled and is booting me off the computer so he can check them out and add them to his collection. Thanks for such an awesome swap! xoxo
Comment: Wonderful mini crazy quilt card! I can never get the chevron stitch so straight and even. And I envy your fabrics! Thank you for joining this swap! And thank you so much for the dubbeltje and kwartje!!
Response: It was fun to make. I have a big box filled with tiny scraps, I can only use on ATC's. Luckily I had enough autumn scraps!
