Mary Poppins for answering my questions about organising swaps and also for this link about swap etiquette which is very helpful to read. I'll leave the swap open until next Monday 22 Feb and then contact everyone once I have matched you up (names in a hat job!). There seems to be 2 ways of doing swaps - matching people in pairs so you send to the person who sends to you or more random where you send to one person but receive a parcel from another person. Anyone have any strong feelings either way? I'm happy to go with whatever people prefer. Also if people can email me their names, addresses and blog link here that would be great and I can pass them on to the relevant people.
My sewing mojo is coming back slowly. Made some bunting triangles last night to send to a folksy seller who is collecting triangles from all over the country to make bunting to decorate a venue for her wedding day. You can still join in if you would like? Have a look here for more info.
I know the colours are a bit random and don't match but I figure that once they are mixed up with all the others they will look ok. The last one has a little bit of freehand embroidery on it and I'm quite pleased with the result as I did it on a whim in about 5 minutes. The button is a little love heart button. I find that if I think about things too much then I become very critical and end up binning things like this so I literally finished it and packaged it up to send so I couldn't change my mind. What do you think?
I also started on my new range of bibs and I am really pleased with the fabrics I have used. Will show you once they are finished. I also had a go at a Mothers Day idea for my Folksy shop but it didn't really work out too well. Frustrating but at least I know now. The idea was good it just took too long to make for the amount I could sell it for so its is best saved for a special present for someone instead.
Thanks to everyone who has nominated me for various awards over the last couple of weeks. I do really appreciate them. I just haven't had the time to post about them or pass them on. I will try to do this but forgive me if I forget. There are not enogh hours in the day!
