Some of you have sent me your addresses to pass on but I am still missing quite a few so to make it easy could you all please contact your swap partner direct to say hi and swap addresses please. 

I really want everyone to enjoy taking part in the swap so here is a quick reminder of what you need to send and when

1) A fat quarter (1/4 metre) of a lovely flowery fabric
2) A packet of your favourite flower seeds (can be bought or from your garden)
3) A handmade lavender bag (can be any size/shape you like)
4) A handmade item related to the flower theme (can be anything really)
5) Another item or items relating to the flower theme (Minimum one item but some people might want to put in several smaller fun items rather than one big thing. This item can be bought or thrifted or be something you have lying around the house!)

Please can people make sure that their swap partners get their packages by Good Friday (2 April 2010). A few people are posting overseas so to give you the same amount of time to make things perhaps you could agree to have posted by then on the understanding your packages may arrive a little bit later. If your parcel is going to be delayed for any reason please can you let your swapee or me know.

I can't wait to see what you all make and send and thought it would be nice to share photos of our packages so I have set up a Flickr group here. It would be great if people could take and download photos of their package when it arrives to the flickr group for us all to see (I'm sure we will all be blogging about them too!)

Happy swapping!!

  2. Yay! Thanks Sew Scrumptious. But how can I go to sleep now, thinking about all the lovely things to make/include in my swapee's goodie bag... (And worrying that my sewing skills aren't good enough *blush*) :o) Thanks again x

  10. Thanks so much for all your hard work with this swap. xx

  11. Thank you, I am off to get to know my partner a little better. xx

  12. May I join the Flickr group so I can see what everyone swaps? It should be a great, colorful display. And I'm curious what a lavender bag is. :) (I think I'll go google it right now.)

  13. I just read a post over at regarding the flower swap that recently took place. I fell in love with the fabric tea bag that you sent her. Would you please make one for me or share the instructions? I would be happy to pay for the supplies and your time. My dearest memories of my Mum involve cups of of tea and now that she is gone, I would love to have this reminder of her. I will use it as a Christmas ornament as my tree is jam-packed with momentos of special times, places, and people. A friend recently sent me a fabric cup of tea but this tea bag is just lovely.

    Thank you,

  14. I'm sorry, I think my post above should have gone to The Madhouse. I will redirect it.
