This swap was organised by Kimberley over at Creative Chaos nz. Once paired with your partner you get in touch and tell them what is your favourite season and they then put a swap together with items that fit into that season.
I was paired with Ellie from http://feltabulous.blogspot.co.uk/ ...I asked her to choose as I love all the seasons for different reasons and well, Ellie absolutely spoilt me. This was a wonderful swap..
Thank you again Ellie xx
This is what Ellie sent me
on the lovely things Ellie made she explained
what all the stones were..so thoughtful
Ellie made the wool heart, the jewellery, the scissor fobs.
I got something from not just one season
but every season
How generous was that!
I absolutely loved everything
Ellie and I sent similar things
To each other
Over our e mails we noticed we had lots
And lots in common.
However I did have a big hiccup!!!
rolls of wrapping paper , tissue paper, bubble wrap and I, in My usual chaos "lost" part of Ellie's swap under a pile of bubble wrap and because I was rushing to post it off I didn,t check everything was in the box. Then on the mutual afternoon Ellie and I decided to open our swaps I sat down moved a space to open the box and found the smaller parcel I hadn't packed. Oh the shame!!! Anyway I apologised to Ellie who was so gracious ...and part 2 was posted off . She has received both parts now thank goodness.
Here is what I sent. ( as you know I am having great trouble find "missing" photos , so the second parcel photos I just can't find , so to see all the bits I sent you might want to pop over to Ellie's blog.)
Ellie choose Spring into Summer as her favourite season..
I sent some tulip bulbs, a flower heart, flower pegs
some felting wool, black for soil (Ellie adores gardening)
and more wool in various colours
(She likes felting too)
A large pincushion made by me in her favourite colours
I added a few sewing charms
And her initial
I made a garden theme scissor fob
The other parcel contained sewing bits and bobs
Including some hexagon EPP
And some spares for Ellie to have a try with.
Ellie told me she loved what I sent
which of course made me happy too.
I so enjoyed this swap. Thank you Kimberley for arranging it . Xxxx. Ellie too, you were a fabulous swap partner.xxx
See you soon.xx
