Covert Robin - Mysteries Revealed

Back in February, I saw a post on 
about a mystery gift exchange.
I'd never done anything like that before and decided...
"why gnat?"
I just love any kind of a mystery.

Our 'mission' was to exchange something 'handmade'.
We were all assigned a special someone to gift to...
then the real fun began. 

Because this was "Covert" - I had to sneakie around my assigned special 'someones' blog,
gathering 'intel' - I wanted to make something she'd like.
Even tho my 'assignment' wouldn't know me from Eve...I thought this was a great time to break out those cool shades I'd won from Amy Bradley, I love a good disguise.

Of course....
that also meant...
was keeping an
on me too!
(in a creepy fun kinda way).

Here were the guidelines:
1. make something handmade and lovely - 
I think I'll see below
2. send your gift according to the time frames - 
3. post about your gifts to enter for a chance to win! - 
Here it is :)
4. have fun :) - 

Today I received a package from
My Covert Robin,
Stacy G in Waco,TX!
I was so excited to open up the box and find this....
Stacey!!!! Thank you so much...
it is Absolutely Beautiful!
I LOVE pillows...
and this one's all mine!
I've made a few for others...
but rarely ever keep any for myself...
in fact, I don't think I've EVER kept one just for me!
I LOVE the fabs!
Look at that Red Star...
I LOVE did you know?
Oh right...

And if that wasn't exciting enough...
Stacy slipped another little something into the box...
The mysterious
"brown paper bag"
What could be inside...
It's a sensational little zippy bag!
I just adore little zippy bags!
And lookie look...there's a Robin!
Are you a clever gal or what Stacy G!!!
Thanks so much my new little 
Covert Feathered Friend!

Now I get to show ya'll what I made and sent to
MY special SOMEONE!
My new friend,
I had a blast wearing those sunglasses...
and stalking Suzan's blog.
She makes so many things...
and sells a lot thru her Etsy shop.
She likes a LOT of different fabrics
(my kinda gal)
First we'll start at "the end"...
I thought about including something sweet...
I know just about everyone loves chocolate...
but what if it melted?
To be on the safe side...
I 'sweetly' wrapped her goodies...
So what's hiding inside the gumdrops?
So glad you asked....
I decided to make Suzan some of my favorite little 
"must haves"
I have a little diddie bag filled with my needles, thimbles, needleholder, etc...
It goes everywhere with me.
I made one for Suzan along with a needleholder, and little flower pincushion
(whoa! if you've been following my blog...I JUST realized...
I finally FINISHED a pincushion - yey! How long have I been talking about these - since last fall at least! haha).
I have a special little tote made by a dear friend that I keep my little must haves in
so it was clear to me...Suzan needed a little tote too!
Suzan has received her package and wrote me a lovely email - she's also blogged about her giftee too - I'm glad she likes it! And yey...I can finally stop sneaking around her blog like a stalker!

Thanks to ALL the Covert Robin Gals for a Job well Done!
Cassie (elegantitus)
Courtney (mon petit lyons)
Jane (buzzmills)
Kelley (casa crafty)
Melissa (a happy stitch)
Rachael (imagine gnats)
Stephanie (The Crafty Kitty)

I am so happy to have been a part of this swap...
 I can't wait to do it again!
(cuz I really love wearing those glasses!)
