So, I've been working the last few weeks on my goodies, and here's what I came up with:
I made the bag in a soft palette of greens, blues and tangerines with a fussy cut tree on both sides. I just love the way that came out. I made a pincushion and then threw in some bright fat quarters and some of my favorite scraps. I added some cute pins and a pair of my can't-live-without snips. I topped it off with some Emergency Chocolate for those times when you just need a little pick me up. I hope she likes it - fingers crossed!!
I put my package in the mail today and was really surprised when I checked my mail that my package had arrived from my secret partner, Suvarna.
She really went all out for me!!
Her package included three handmade gifts - the friendship bag, an adorable zip pouch and a canvas/fabric keychain - all in this very vibrant yellow/grey and black palette. So cute!! She also threw in a stack of bright charm squares and some cute pins with hearts on the end. What a great package to receive today. I've already decided that the zip pouch will hold my hexies in progress for grab-and-go access!!
I can see myself getting quite addicted to this swap idea. If you've never done one before, be on the lookout - I will let you know when I see one opening up.
Enjoy your (hopefully) long weekend :)
