This post is more of the catching up I need to do - this time the topic is swapping! Stephanie and I arranged a little swap for a Japanese craft book I had, and in return I received the most beautiful package in return. Just take a look at these goodies!
The goodness (in beautiful spring colors - orange, pink, yellow, purple...) included 3 different colors/sizes of ric-rac, some beautiful woven trim clipped with the cutest little yellow birdy clip, 3 vintage fabrics and some beautiful Kaffe Fassett, 4 colors of wool roving, a vintage hank of soft, pink, cotton yarn, a bunch of gorgeous vintage buttons, 3 pieces of wool felt, an adorable "big cheese" button, and an amazing Scharffen Berger dark chocolate nibby bar!
Here's a close-up of the fabric, because I know you're all going to swoon over the kittens...
Yes, a truly amazing package of goodness. Thanks Stephanie!
A while back, I was drooling over a beautiful purse that Amanda had made. Lo and behold, Amanda offers to make another one for me as part of a swap! Her beautiful purse arrived yesterday, together with an awesome bonus pouch filled with sweets!
Her bag and pouch are beautifully constructed, and they are so sweet! I made up a little surprise for her that I'll post about after she gets her package... Thanks Amanda! I love my new accessories!
This swapping thing is definitely addictive! Now I'm off to try to figure out my back-tack stuff... I'm definitely feeling a wee bit intimidated by the amazing things being produced by Hillary and Nicole!
