My dear friend (Geo) no blog has been reading my blog and she really really wanted to be involved in a Swap......I said to her that with a lot of Swaps you don't have to have a blog you can just join up with them!!! She then said she wanted to do one with me.....
okay then let's do it!!!
For my theme I chose the colour turquoise...
and here are my goodies that arrived a few weeks later...
Amongst the loot was a hand knitted necklace...
turquoise beaded necklace......a book
hand knitted dishcloth/face washer
gorgeous Washrock soap......pencil case......fat quarter
It really did look lovely all together!!!
Thanks so much Geo......lots of fun!!!!!!!
There were lots of choices in what we could send...
some of them were...
something to read
something to do
something from the Op Shop
something for the sewing room
Geo first chose an African theme but that would've been a bit difficult to put together here in this sleepy coastal town...
so in the end we went with birds
I saw this fabric Geo and thought of you straight away
and I have started on your swap now!!!
Meanwhile the most useful little sewing tool recommended to me by Jan from Finishing School is this purple stick like thing called 'thang'
it pushes...it pokes and it holds down fabric whilst sewing
and was perfect for gathering the base
of my bag which is getting there!!!!!!!
Now it's back to work on my item for Geo...Happy Stitching, Dzintra
