I was in 2 swaps in March.
The first was a Colour Swap organised by Maree.
Cheryll sent me some gorgeous green items, which I have already shown you in a previous post.
This is what I sent Carol from Narromine. She chose burgundy, which was easy for me to chose items as burgundy is my other favourite colour.
I sent her turkish delight chocolates, a burgundy and a cream fat quarter, 2 burgundy embroidery threads, a note book, soap and a lavender filled heart for her wardrobe.
This is the lavender filled heart which I made. I used a pattern for a pin cushion and filled it with lavender instead of wadding.
The second swap was the Once a Season swap organised by Cheryll.
We had to send something with an Autumn theme.
Rochelle sent me this beautiful T-Towel which she made, some gorgeous embroidery thread, some chocolates, an handmade card and a postcard of Lake Macquarie, where she lives.
When I was a child living in Sydney we used to go to Lake Maquarie for holidays. It certainly has changed.
This is the beautiful T-Towel up close. What gorgeous work.
Thankyou so much Rochelle for the gorgeous presents.
I sent my presents to Larain.
I made her oven mitts and a pot holder out of some autumn leaves material. I also sent some chocolates and a note book.
I loved making the oven mitts and pot holder and they look great. I wanted to keep them myself. I have some fabric left over so might make myself a set.
Larain sent me this lovely tea mug set, complete with spoon and tea strainer. Can't wait to use it.
